Really quite special little street with a handful of non-chain small cafes and bars, very colorful and nice place for a cup of coffee/tea, handmade chocolate or a little lunch. Best in earlt summer and sunny weather for outdoor sitting.

This street is a great place to experience the life and joy of the people in Stavanger. The street is famous for its colourful houses and niche bars. Truly worth a visit.
