Enjoyed a really lovely lunch here with friends. The service staff were super friendly and efficient and the food was nothing short of Devine. The confit duck sandwich was a real crowd pleaser :) Will definately be returning to this little gem!

Waited ages for the coffee. The overpriced brioche is dry and the service is stuck up and ignorant. Any non fancy bakery is better than this.

I love this place! The coffee is great and the pastries too. In addition it is nicely decorated. Compared to other places in Oslo the coffee is better and the pastries are huge. Worth the money!

I find the quality of the bread slightly inconsistent; baguette and fruits&nuts bread are top notch, but a few other types of bread are a bit more boring. However the selection of pastries is amazing, and they are the reason I keep coming back. They have a great variety of mouth watering, no nonsense cakes, danish pastries and scones that... More

It is a good bakery right on the main street of downtown Oslo and there is always a lot of people, which is ok, but there is absolutely no good system of getting the ordered drinks. You order a drink at the registrar and then you go and wait for your drink at the other counter. But there is no... More

It's always full. But I continuous try that in asperses empty occasions. Those occasions are always difficult to find my favorite bread, it isn't ready for serving or it is sold out. The place has a good style and it is my usual path when I visit Oslo. It seemed there's nothing to be compare around it. If I choose... More

They have the most delicious sjokoladeboller I've ever had. These boller are giant and fluffy and full of chocolate chips--definitely the best value for your kroner. United also makes fantastic coffees. Their lattes come in giant cups that are almost like soup bowls. Really yummy and such a good value.

It used to be a splendid place to eat and drink, now the newspapers are gone, so is the wireless internet. Worst, however, is too few staff, trying to do their best!

Window shopping fro bread: look no further! Add cakes! Clearly a national institution. Tables outside, inside as well.. although within a shop next to the cosmetics counter (which advertises a bar along with cosmetics). Packed. Fast helpful service (buy at counter then queue again for coffee). Sandwiches filling and tasty. Cinnamon cakes soft and even more tasty. Coffee fine and... More

Great strawberry jam; really wish they'll sell it in jars so I can take some back to my home coutry. Triple chocolate scone is also a must try, the scone with the nuts are also very tasty. Focaccia with tomato and lives was a little salty, but very good nonetheless. They have shops in other places in Oslo, one near... More
