This cafe is a must when visiting Åsgårdstrand. They offer many beautiful desserts and other food options. It is very overpriced, however, and there are no prices listed on any of the desserts.

This small, beautiful village, once the home of Edvard Munch, is quiet off season. We had lunch in Munch's Cafe. Welcomed by the friendly and helpful owner, we selected our food and were seated by a wood fire in a room decorated with prints by Munch. The food was good and the portions generous.

The cafe is wrongly listed here at Tripadvisor, the street address is okay, however the town is Åsgårdstrand and NOT Horten It is a cosy little cafe, fireplace and candlelights in winter, outdoor seating in summer Famous for its delcious cakes (bakery next door, Fransens konditori) An other favourite is their shrimp sandviches, which has a generous heap of shrimps...
