Their cakes and buns are probably delicious but I never got to taste anything since they don't cater for people with milk and gluten allergies! My friend was very pleased with hers so I had to watch her munch on her cake! Sipped my tea and starved as I watched her eat away!

Me and my girlfriend stopped at this bakery for a short break just before our leave from Oslo, and we both were very happy with the outcome. The interior is nicely decorated, a bit more light at the tables would be good, but can't complain in the end about that. The bakery was very crowded at that time, was difficult... More

Artisan bakery with a ficus on quality ingredients and authentic crafts of making bread, lovely and friendly place offering tempting selection of rolls and pastries, homemade chocolates and preserves. There is a contemporary cafe on the ground floor in Paleet serving excellent coffee, aromatic, rich and velvety, from Lille Kaffe, Oslo's local roaster.

I often visit here for coffee and/or bakery items; while the breads are just ok, coffee is great, and most of all it is a nice place to spend some time in, especially when there's some bustle around the place.

Perfectly located on Oslo's main avenue (Karl Johans gate) and having of an outside seating option, the United Bakeries is a good spot for a quick lunch before heading back to the office. The meals are correct, quite healthy and very generous ; the service is quick ; the fares are still reasonable (don't forget you are in Oslo). United... More

They have the bests kanelboller( typical Norwegian cinnamon bread) and some other types of local sweet bread, cakes, muffins, and so on. They have nice coffees, juices, tea, etc and a nice place to sit to enjoy the breads while having a view of the city. They have also... More

We found this place while looking for a place to have lunch and were delighted with the food and pastries. The croque madame and the poached eggs sandwich with avocado were very good as well as the triple chocolate scone.

United bakeries at it's height used to be our very favourite cafe. After it reduced numbers, this is the only one left. We were greatly disappointed, the coffe was not nicely made, and the bun was dry. The jam that once used to be free is now steeply 30kr. Service and hospitality lacking. We will not be going back.
