Delicious fresh pastries, sandwiches, and meals. Quickly became our favorite place in Balestrand for light dining. Lovely setting by the marina, close to the ferry dock. Convenient to tourist office, and transport. Dine indoors or out.

Wide selection of pastries and desserts. It was difficult to make a choice. We had a delicious berry pastry with soft ice cream on the side. Nice setting of seats outside by the harbour.
