Situated on the busy Karl Johan's Gate this place is nice and well priced. They have a good selection and the pastries are all huge and very tasty. Nice decor inside and seating available outside to sit in the sun. Really nice for a coffee and a cake.

If you like expresso coffee, then seek this place out. Makes a great change from the filter coffee found throughout Scandinavia. Theuy also have some great snacks - breads, sandwiches and sweets. There are tables inside and under umbrellas on Karl Johan Gate.
