Being an American living in Norway, there are a lot of things that I miss - most importantly my family and my friends. But I've also realized how much I miss American food...but there is a perfect solution to my problem, and that's Cafe Fedora in Oslo! Fedora is the only restaurant in Oslo that serves authentic American food. The food is absolutely amazing, like one of my fellow Americans said on Facebook; "I need to quit my job and get a job closer to Fedora so I can have lunch there every day!”
The cafe is open Tue-Fri from 11:00 am - 7:00 pm and Sat-Sun from 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm. On Saturdays and Sundays they serve brunch, and the menu (including vegetarian options) is to die for...pancakes, Texas chili with sweet cornbread, wraps, salads, mac and cheese, hash browns...and so much more! Not to mention the sweets; cookies, cupcakes (including red velvet!), cheesecake brownies and pies. You can also get coffee, tea, milkshakes and root beer floats! They recently started serving dinner every Thursday and Friday from 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm, and just thinking about some of the dishes on the menu makes me hungry; chicken & sausage gumbo, hush puppies, shrimp etouffee, oven baked sweet potato fries...
But the reason I love Cafe Fedora so much is not only the food, but also the people working there, and the hospitality. Anthony, Nicole, Chelsea and everybody else are so amazing. They will greet you at the door, smile, give you a hug and sit down to talk to you - hospitality like that is very rare in Oslo. If I'm having a bad day or I really miss my family, being at Cafe Fedora for a couple of hours always makes me feel better, I never want to leave!
So if you’re really craving dishes that you love and you thought that you couldn’t get in Norway or if you’ve never tried real American food, go to Cafe Fedora! I promise you that you will never want to leave either!
