Edvard Munch and his bohemian friends whiled away many hours in this café in the Grand Hotel. As the artist wrote in his diary, "We used to have a few drinks after breakfast to sober up. Later we'd drink to get back into a stupor." Nowadays, folks stop by for the food, too—fish soup, poached salmon with dilled potatoes, burgers, marinated whale steak, and tasty desserts such as lemon tart or crème brûlée. Sunny and elegant, the 19th-century-style dining room seats 240 and serves buffet breakfasts to hotel guests.

Open daily 6:30 am to 11 pm
