.. they are alone and they need it. I have seen only the ones in the central area of the city.
I will let you admire few of them.
Nice "combination" with the "Little Sunday Princess"and the "Leaping Centaur" behind...
I have lost a lot of them but.. next time I will find them all :)
The original mill which was built in 1877 burned down in 1928, this building was raised in 1929.
The mill was taken over by the municipality and renovated in 2003 for cultural purposes. The concert hall on the ground floor, which gives room for an audience of 150, used to be a storage for flour bags :-). The coffee bar also holds 150 people. On the first floor (second floor in norwegian) there is a gallery.
A lot of cultural activities as well as private arrangements like weddings etc. take place in the mill.
Mølledammen is centrally located in Bryne, just a small block north of Storgata. A lot has been done here to make it a pleasant green lung, just take a look at the pictures!
Casual and relaxed atmosphere, the two owners and their helpers both cook and serve, and you can control their work as the kitchen is open and visible from the cafe. They also do catering for big and small parties, and they sell susages, cheese and other ingredients at the desk.
The coffeeshop previously known as Skomakeren Kaffebar bankrupted. New owners have bought the inventory, remodeled and reopened the place. A typically urban place with good coffeedrinks and a choice of snack kind of meals. They are licenced for selling alcoholic beverages too, with opening hours during the weekend until 03:30 in the morning.
Favorite Dish: Caffe mocca, it is my favourite in every coffeeshop :-) The one in Bryne is as good as anywhere I have been.
"Stationen" on the ground floor is a PUB that also serves snack like food, and the "dinner of today" is NOK 85. Tuesday is seafood day, thursday the traditional "komle" is served.
"Expeditionen" upstairs used to be a restaurant, nowadays it is used for closed parties from 6 to 30 people only. I ate there once, and was very satisfied!
"Perrongen" is the outdoor department, which is open during the summer season.
"Stationsmusikken" is the name of the cultural arrangements, there are usually concerts wednesdays. And there is a quiz every thursday.
Their home page is in norwegian (I have translated some of it), but there are a couple of pictures, and the opening hours are to be found under the heading "Åpningstider".
Erland is actually the name of the owners / artists. They are relocating and giving their shop a new name, which is for now secret :-) It is a wife and husband shop, where they produce and sell their ceramics. The adress below is their new adress, where they will be found from mid october. The street runs in parallel with the railway line, on the east side.
What to buy: Take a look at the pictures, maybe their products should be classified more as art than craft?
This was the only place I could see in Bryna, in a beautiful sunny day in July.
Nice and quiet place, I am wondering if you could do more than walking aroud the lake, in Bryne.
