I love the cinnamon bunns here, and nothing beats sitting in the sheltered, back yard on a sunny summer day digging in to their chips. I love the no frills attitude, and the mix of people and eating concepts they have. A cinnamon bunn, a 3 course full dinner, og a burger on the fly.

Good food, smiling and friendly stuff. Prices are good for whaty you get - because you get quite a big portions. Steak sandwich is yummy! I recommend to book the table before coming, because place tends to be crowded during the lunch time.

When Matmagasinet first opened I was pretty excited as I found it to be very good and I named “our new little gem in Stavanger”. That was back in 2011 and over the years we have visited this place several times. It is still part café , part coffee shop, part catering and part shop for various stuff such as... More

Quiet spot to meet with friends for an afternoon out. Great lattes and really yummy lunch specials. A cozy spot a bit off the beaten path and well worth taking the time to check it out.

After some lunch when staying at the Royal hotel and this place was just across the road and looked nice. The menu offers a mix of various items as well as a few specials. Add to that a selection of mostly organic drinks and smoothies on the bar and you get the impression of a trendy, organic place (even the... More

I've been here a few times. Never disappointed. The place in itself is not charming, but OK. Tables are close to each other, and not necessarily cleaned neither before nor during your stay. But with a bit of goodwill it's cosy. You order at the desk, if you want water you'll have to fetch it yourself and hope that they've... More

Once you know your way about central Stavanger Matmagasinet is really quite easy to find and is worth the climb up the hill. We had a light lunch there on our final day in Stavanger before heading for the airport. I had the pulled pork baguette and my wife had the chicken, bacon and egg focaccia together with an Americano... More
