Colonialen is a chain of restaurants
and cafes, each with its own
characteristic and quirkiness.
Colonialen Litteraturhuset or ”House
of Literature” lies in the middle of
Bergen. It is a hidden gem, tucked
away on a cobbled side street, close to
the famous fish-market. It may be
slightly hard to find, but well worth it.
Colonialen Litteraturhuset serves
French/Norwegian food, following the
different seasons. Norway has very
contrasting seasons. It´s no not just
the weather, but also the different
protein and vegetables available, and
you are served what the Chef believes
is perfect for that time of year.
On the menu you will find dishes in
varying sizes. Salads, soups,
sandwiches and "planks". The
restaurant is open all day, starting with
breakfast, lunch and then dinner.
The design is typical Scandinavian chic
and you will get an understanding of
the concept of ”hygge”. Here is a
relaxed atmosphere, transforming
from a café during the day, to a more
forma, but still cosy brasserie style
restaurant in the evening.
Because of its location, its a perfect
place for a time out from sightseeing
or shopping in Bergen,
