Please note: The café is closed for 2021, due to the museum refurbishment.

Visit our cosy little café at Lysøen serving freshly made waffles, ice-cream, soft drinks and coffee/tea.

The café can be found right next to Ole Bull’s villa, and is located inside a building that was once the servants’ quarters. In 1980, it was turned into the janitor’s lodging. It was used that way until 1996, when a new home for the janitor was constructed down by the harbour. At that point, the house was converted into a cafe, and it has remained one ever since.

The café seats about 30 people on the first floor, and 15 in two small rooms with a slanted roof on the second floor. There are also seats outside.

Please order beforehand if you want coffee/lunch for your group. Lunch/buffet-style cold dishes for groups must be booked in advance.
