They serve an exellent espresso. Strong, fruity and a real "pick-me-up" experience!! Food is ok, but don't expect traditionall norwegian cooking. Some of the cakes are a meal in them selves.

Came here multiple times on my day trips to Alesund. Each time was delicious, affordable (for Norway), and the ambiance was comfortable and relaxing. Carrot cake is a must - best I've ever had! Wonderful food!!!!

Ordered pulled pork sandwich on a rainy day. Cafe is cozy, food was delicious especially the olive bread, didn't try their coffee and carrot cake though, too full. May be next time ! The cafe is spacious too!

Nice cafe, with vegetarian options, we had the Sweet Samuri and a salad Santini with the nuts option, which was very nice, the salad is based on the tomatoes of the same name.
