We had two different cakes: one was not tasty, the other one so dry, it had to be from the day before. Staff is nice though. The cafe is in the aquarium entrance, thus lots of kids.

We stopped there after visiting the aquarium. We chose the fish soup that comes with bread. Quite tasty and quite filling but a bit too salty, we drunk a lot of water in the afternoon! The deck with the harbour view is great and sheltered.

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.

One of the more bizzare things I've seen on my travels... This bakery is inside the Aquarium...I know its off season, but everything was run by a one person...one nice lady whom is baking the goods, serving the goods, cashiering the goods, cleaning the tables,...More
