Granlibakken has great food, anyone who has stayed here can tell you that. From our hot buffet breakfast included with all reservations and served daily, to our conference meal plans that offer a variety of different options to suit even the most discerning diner, we pride ourselves on serving amazing meals. However, it is not often that we get the opportunity to win awards for our food, and the Autumn Food & Wine Festival is something our staff always looks forward to--as both a challenge and a chance to showcase our amazing food.
