All-around Lovely

Personally I love this place, I grew up longing to go see the beautiful candles they made and when I realized they had a museum upstairs I was so happy to find out there was even more to this place, as time went on and they expanded to add a diner I was overjoyed. when I came to visit the diner I loved every second of it, best onion rings I've ever tasted, awesome burgers and milkshakes to die for. That all being said the owners also have a decent collection of old cars scattered around Honestly this may be my favourite place in this entire country. However, if neither candles, museums (circa 60's american items for the most part, more for show, less for information), diners or cars interest you, this may not be the place for you. If any of those interest you, I'd definitely recommend visiting if you're in the area

Tired of driving?
In the mood for lights and a burger?

This is a great place to stop! An American diner with its 50s atmosphere, jukebox and a vanilla shake you’ll want to last forever. Put on a record, do the twist and get in the mood for great fries, and a Bopin’ burger.

In a hurry?
They also deliver take away.

Great burgers and special surroundings

A place out in now-where, along the main route E6 going north-south in Norway. Here you find an American diner, comined with a candle light factory and shop. Service is good, fare prices and nice food. Well worth a stop.

A Museum With a Pulse
Apr 2017 • Couples
This is definitely one of those oddball roadside attractions, like you would find on the old Route 66 in the US, which is part cafe, tourist trap, a genuine museum of vintage Americana, candle factory store, and diverting rest stop en route to wherever. It is located in the beautiful Vuddu Valley pass between Åsen and Stjordal outside of Trondheim. It sounds cliché but "you can't miss it". One moment you're driving through scenic Norwegian countryside and then around the corner is a riot of colour, old advertising signs, American street boat cars (a Caddy, a cop car, an ambulance, etc), a giant chair, a lifesize Coca Cola bear, and you are almost compelled to pull over to get a closer look and explore.

What it seems to be is a very passionate collection and tribute to the 50s, 60s, and 70s America. It is loosely organized (ha!) into theme rooms filled with vintage relics from years past. Literally wall to wall, floor to ceiling, are artifacts, collectables, junk from the hazy mists of time. In the general store are cans, boxes, and jars from old products, in the kitchen are obsolete appliances and gadgets that totally reminded me of my Grandma's house. There is a whole lot of candles on display and for sale as I think the business started as a candlemaking factory.

The highlight of this roadside attraction is the American style "diner", circa 1960. All tricked out and embellished with aqua blue and white upholstered seats with chrome trim, it is a near perfect replica of an American burger joint from that era. The jukebox, which really works, is filled with rare vintage 45s (like the King's 1956 classic "Don't Be Cruel" with the B-side "Hound Dog"), straw and napkin dispensers, plastic covered menus, and a hundred other details filled this room. Best of all though, was the aroma of actual American food, grilled burgers and onions, fry grease, and Cokes in glass bottles and milkshakes in 3 flavours! It was the pleasure of nostalgia eating combined with the knowledge of how very far off in time and distance we were from 1960s America. Mostly it was a loving tribute to American car culture and music. It was all great fun!

I recommend it if for nothing else than a good place to stretch your legs on a long journey, and it's a decent burger joint too (even if they did not know what "malt" was and the straws were not paper).

Oh, how nice!

Beautifully crafted pieces of art disguised as candles. I love this place. A bit of nostalgic Americana. Very friendly staff. I did the I break - I buy act - oops! the folks were so nice about it and were not going to make me pay, but, I insisted. They invited me upstairs to check out their museum and enjoy some Glugg... this is where I want to get some souvenirs to bring home on my next trip. What a nice place

Amazing and unique butikk and American Diner
Feb 2016 • Family
As an American Hot Rod enthusiast this place really brings home the American Hot Rod and traditional Diner feel. Their food is fantastic and the closest I've tasted to an American diner here in Norway. The upstairs museum is well thought out and special to the past time of America. Definitely would make the trip of you have the opportunity!
