Kaupanger is one of my favorite places near Sogndal in Sogn og Fjordane county in Norway. When I read in the Norwegian magazine, D2, about Knaken café, I knew that this would be my pitstop next summer.

It is a family run café located in the old sheepbarn belonging to Kaupanger Manor, an old titled farm.

The owners, the Knagenhjelm family, celebrated their 300 year anniversary in Kaupanger in 2010. Today, Christoffer Knagenhjelm (picture), who is the 10th generation, runs the farm. He and his wife are both archaeologists, and also offer guided tours of Kaupanger.
