Perfect place to eat waffles with beatiful view on the sea and the fjords around. We even fed the lambs ! Nice experience and really worth the stop.

We stopped here to find answers to all our sheep questions having seen more than people on our way around this beautiful island. It was a fantastic experience, great snacks and our kids bottle-fed the lambs.
