The inside is decorated with eveything you could imagine from colorfull umbrellas, to small toys and paintings. For me if you go to bergen definately pay a visit, even if it is for a quick drink or coffee. If you are luck enough to see the owner of the place she blends in perfectly, to her wordefully wierd kingdom.

Simply the best bar in Bergen. Nice athmosphere and friendly staff. You have to try it, to believe it.

The place is so relaxing and nice. They have some table games you can freely use. The waffle with brown cheese is amazing and the panini was also nice. I used Shazam there more than 4 times so, I guess I also kind of loved the music. A must when in Bergen!

Walked past this bar and thought it looked cool. Inside there are lots of quirky decorations. They have beer, wine, coffee & waffles. Lots of locals here. It has a lovely very relaxed vibe. They have an menu in English as well as Norwegian. They have gluten free beer and cider.

Needed a beer after a spicy and delicious sausage at 3 kroneren hot dog kiosk. Really a special and different place. Relaxing and very nice staff. Retro inventory and back ground music as well. Highly recomended for a relaxing time to enjoy some really good beer. They have a good variety, both on tap and bottle.

Great unbeatable atmosphere. Super-nice staff. Excellent music. A feast for the eyes as the walls and ceilings are covered in crazy art. The owners are the coolest pair in town and they're often there so it feels like visiting a friend's house. The coffee needs some improvement though. The Cappuccino I order often comes bitter and barely drinkable but things... More

Bergen has its fair share of lovely coffee shops but if you want a bit of Bergenser quirkiness you must stop by BarBarista. The interior is a fabulous jolt to the senses... paintings on ceilings, mis matched furniture, dolls or all genres... and a great jukebox. The Elpeslang, an Apple and chilli concoction, is lovely and worth a try... Great... More

I found this cafe while wandering Bergen, and what a treat! It is decorated in a very fun and colorful way, had great food, and was just a nice place to relax after a long day of being a tourist. They had a relatively small but nice selection of food, plus coffee/hot drinks and a bar, so there is something... More

Great Interiors. This place definitely has a very interesting character. They have a unique and interesting collection of books. Not a great place for beer though. We were told that this place gets lively in the evenings. Sadly it doesn't. It's more of a place to laze around. We left disappointed as our expectations were different.
