come and enjoy delicious Belgian pancakes in The 100-year-old Cafe!

The Osa Kafeen is a cozy place with an amazing hidden story. 100 years ago it was built to be a cafe for the workers employed to build one of the largest hydro power plants in Norway. It took 2200 workers and 11 years of hard work, but unfortunately the project was ended due to a bankruptcy. Now, the Kafeen and a huge network of tunnels and shafts is all that remains from that period. 

Learn more about the fascinating history and book our historic "tunnel excursion". (click "activities centre") 

The super cozy Kafeen is situated right next to a white river coming from the nearby mountain. There is a garden offering place for at least 40 persons. Sitting just a few meters away from the stream, listening to the sounds it makes while having a pancake is an experience in itself!

In Osa Kafeen, every tourist can get touristic information, coffee, tea, pancakes, delicious local dishes, Belgian beers, local ciders or an ice cream. Our overnight staying guests from Hardanger Basecamp enjoy a delicious "all you can eat" pancake breakfast, along with a variety of at least 5 different homemade marmalades, made from handpicked fruits, flowers or plants and a range of Belgian sugars.

They can also book diner and spend an evening in this unique and exclusive place.

The cafe is also the starting place for some of our excursions or activities, but can perfectly serve as a starting place for self-organised hiking trips in the region with parking space nearby. You can treat yourself with a  well-deserved drink and a snack or meal after your adventure.
