Granlibakken Dining

Hot Breakfast Buffet

All resort guests who book direct with Granlibakken can enjoy breakfast each day as part of their lodging package. Guests who do not book direct through Granlibakken can purchased breakfast separately at the front desk upon arrival.

Depending on the season, Granlibakken offers a hearty breakfast buffet, chef’s choice made to order breakfast or a voucher to a local breakfast eatery.

Granlibakken has great food, anyone who has stayed here can tell you that. From our hot buffet breakfast included with all direct reservations 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.

Next time that you’re at Granlibakken, we are sure that you will find your own winning pairing of food and wine (or orange juice, if it is breakfast). The kitchen staff are constantly working to create meals that are delicious and exceptional, and there is something for everyone.
