Description: After arriving into Lillehammer via train and taking a three minute stroll, you begin to see the sweet quaintness Lillehammer has to offer. Another minute of walking and you meet the historic Kulturhuset Banken, the culture house of Lillehammer. Set on the first floor of Kulturhuset Banken you will find Cafe Stift. In warmer months, the cafe expands onto the front stone courtyard of the building, creating a perfect alfresco feel to enjoy the great outdoors. Inside the cafe, you can see and feel the timeless culture. Having been built in 1895, with high ceilings, antique chandeliers, original windows and woodwork, you wish the walls could talk. The natural and classic environment set by the Kulturhuset Banken combined with Cafe Stifts' new and original vibe sets an undeniable atmosphere, adding to the lovely Lillehammer, to enjoy within the company of a friend, family, or yourself. Hjertelig velkommen til oss på Cafe Stiff!

Really good pulled beef nachos. Nice and trendy atmosphere. Excellent choice of funky music when we visited.

Cafe Stift is an pleasant informal place for every time of the day. Coffee is fine and also the burger. Service is ok. You can sit inside and outside. They also organize performances.

Were looking for somewhere with decent lunch that catered for vegetarian and gluten free and weren't disappointed!
I had the beef strip sandwich (gluten free) and my friend had the vegetarian.
Great combination of onions, peppers, salad and beef on two pieces of gluten free bread - tasted great and really filling.
Quirky lounge atmosphere and very friendly service. Highly recommend
