I recommend to every single coffee lover (and not only) - travelling or living in Oslo - to try this coffee shop. The place is really small and crowded, with only two little tables inside, and few chaires outside, but the service and the quality of the coffee/espresso is very high! It is a great experience. Just try it, and... More

We were in Oslo for 3 days and went everyday. Nice staff, beautiful little place with fabulous coffee. It's really not that much more than other places but so good. If you love coffee, you need to check it out.

We read about Tim Wendelboe in the NY Times. It said it was one of the best in Oslo. And...one of the best in the world. How right they were. The shop is small and seats about 6-8 people. It also has a small coffee counter where you can fit about three or four more. It's easiest, to get your... More

Micro roastery with the best coffee in Oslo. Don't even bother asking for a salad or a caj, as these guys are true purists

This is the perfect place to stop and enjoy and actually good quality coffee. The staff were extremely nice and were very happy to talk (to anyone who'd listen!) about the various beans and so on. It's obviously pricy, but the quality of the beans, the roastary and the preparation and serving of the drinks is top notch.

This is just THE best coffee you can get a hold of in Oslo. But, be prepared to pay a lot for smaller cups than usual. Well, well, I keep coming back anyways. The staff is very attentive and polite. Always in a good mood. If you're not sure what you want to get, the staff will be more than... More

This is not a restaurant and this place is not a cosy coffee shop to take your laptop/magazine/book too. However, they make the most amazing coffee ever! Cappuccino - awesome, cappuccino al freddo - even more awesome! The most professional baristas I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Also worth noting that a coffee here is the same price as...

I had previously read about Tim Wendelboe in Caffeine magazine, so I was quite looking forward to my visit upon arriving in Norway. The exterior is quite attractive, and makes the place stand out whilst seeming to fit into the surrounding area. On walking inside I was a bit surprised as it's quite small, and open. They have a long... More

Staff was nice…and were knowledgable. They did try to sell me a coffee and a cappuccino…ummm, no. I'd just like one, please. Coffee was more like tea? I don't know…I wasn't impressed…I don't understand why it's so popular?
