Ægir Bryggeri og Pub

$$$ Fodor's choice
It started out as a straightforward microbrewery, but Ægir has been transformed into a complete culinary experience. Conveniently located near the cruise port in Flåm, its local dishes pair beautifully with the award-winning beer. The interior is inspired by Norse mythology, with driftwood furnishings and a central fireplace whose chimney extends through both floors.

At the Fretheim Hotel, the Arven offeres dishes based on local ingredients---think mussels steamed in cider and herbs or monkfish with seaweed---in a sophisticated and cozy atmosphere. From the second-floor windows you can enjoy beautiful views of the Aurlandsfjord and the mountains beyond.

Flåm Bakeri

This bakery serves up some of the best cinnamon rolls you have ever tasted, and of course the famous Norwegian skolebolle (buns with custard and coconut). In the summer, they move the chairs and tables outside so you can enjoy the sunshine. In cooler weather the space is limited, so you might want to take your treats with you.

Furukroa Kafé

Occupying a traditional Nordic structure, this casual eatery is the kind of place where families head to the picnic tables on the terrace in warmer months and booths in the homey interior when it's cooler. It serves a variety of dishes, most of which are pictured on the wall. The location puts you close to the cruise port.
