“Sweet little cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

Excellent find near our hotel, The First Marin. Cozy welcoming atmosphere with plenty of room to stretch out and read and consume delicious treats. Smell of cakes wafting through the air. Music on the record player complimenting the atmosphere. Want to go back for dinner.

“Fabulous cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

A gorgeous cafe with bags of character, wonderful open sandwiches - probably one of the best I have ever had and yummy cakes. Great service and wonderful venue. Highly recommend. Oh and also extremely well priced in a place where everything is hugely expensive.

“Lovely relaxed lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

Our final day in Bergen and we wanted to have something for lunch to keep us going until our evening flight home. Had noted a few possibilities from Tripadvisor and decided to take a look at Krok og Krinkel Bokcafe. Only a few hundred metres from the crowds queueing for tickets at the lower Funicular station is this little oasis of calm and coffee. Not a huge menu but everything is cooked in house and tastes great. We had the hot option of vegan chilli which came with sour cream, lime wedge, corriander and toasted sour dough bread. Could not resist cake and coffee to follow and the carrot cake lived up to the recommendation of previous reviews. Relaxed jazz music was playing on the record deck, there are shelves of books (Norwegian and English) to browse or buy and a small pile of boardgames for extra fun. Relaxed, reasonably priced ( by Norway standards), great food and lovely ambience. If I lived nearby I would become a regular :-)

“Home away from Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

What a lovely and quiet place just steps away from the crowded tourist area in Bergen. Take a few steps down and you will be in a cozy friendly and homey atmosphere. The cake is delicious and we had 5 different types of. the scent of cinnamon is all around and last but not least the coffee is top! If i am ever back in Bergen i am definitely back at Krok og Krinkel
