“The Garden of Eden”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

I hereby congratulate the inhabitants of tiny Lillesand with a fully-fledged coffee shop. It looks like a good start! The interior is modern, witty and cosy (what with ancient newspapers, serving as wallpaper in the toilet - it really gives a visitor something to do!) and a beautiful garden outside. The menu disapoints with quite high prices, which are understandable, though, if you look at the demographics of this town. Also, they definitely should put "iced coffee" and "frappuchino" in the section with cold drinks, not warm drinks! ;)

But that's just cherry-picking. The all in all impression is good. The coffee is of high quality and in addition serves to better the conditions of orphans in Brazil (if I remember correctly). I hope the place will live long and prosper.

“A nice place to eat in Lillesand”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

This is a small cafe with a beautiful back yard overlooking the marina. Here it is also easy to bring strollers and dogs. Inside it is not so spacious. You order and pay inside by the bar and bring your drinks to the table, but food prepared in the kitchen will be brought out to you. They serve really good burgers from the local butcher (Jens Eide), and have a few other hot dishes as well. They will serve the burgers rear if you don't say anything. At least that what was they did to me.
