I waited outside in the cold for this one to open, but it was well worth it.
Bergen easily became one of my new favourite Scandinavian destinations after my visit this past October. It's a tiny town, always welcomed by rain, but hugged by a bounty of mountains. One of my fondest memories from my trip was my morning visit to the café Nobel Bopel.
Being vaguely reminiscent of a high school cafeteria from any cult classic 90's movie, I immediately took a liking to this spot.
Notice the red school seats, the big lighting panels in the ceiling and the local artwork taped on the walls. Kind of brings you back to good ol' school, no?
I took a coffee and cake and eavesdropped on Norwegian conversations of the people around me. For a moment, I pretended I was in an episode of Skam, but then gently reminded myself that I didn't understand Norwegian. But it was nice to pretend.
I loved the vintage lamps and couches - bits from the 70s that I'm currently obsessing over.
If you're ever in Bergen, check this place out. Sit for a while, listen to the tunes, sip on some java, look at the rad Bergen art scene. It's a tiny place, but with gems like Nobel Bopel, I promise you'll enjoy it.
