The Café

The café at the Norwegian Museum of Horticulture serves the best waffles in town. Many have asked for the recipe, and we are happy share the secret of the waffle as well as the Svele - a delicious pancake from Sunnmøre.

Waffles are served with sour cream and strawberry jam. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, water, ice cream and locally made apple juice from Puntervold are also available.
