The "Michelsen" cafe is at the edge of the open Byparken area of central Bergen, close to the ornamental lake, Lille Lungegårdsvann. Byparken is surrounded by a number of the important buildings of the city, including the town hall, railway station, library and the art museum. The mountain Ulriken towers in the background.
I walked past "Michelsen" quite a few times when I was in Bergen. Maybe it was the modern design, a sort of oblong box with a lot of glass, that put me off, but I did not go in until my last day in the city. However, I am glad that I did go in, and not just to get out of the heavy rain that Bergen was enjoying that day! The large glass windows on the side of the building facing the lake proved to be a good feature. My son is studying in the city and he joined me in the "Michelsen" for lunch. They have quite a good and varied menu, and we both had Caesar salad (109 NOK each) and Cappuccinos (37 NOK each). The "Michelsen" cafe is well worth a visit.
