We were in town with our cruise ship and this was the perfect place to take a break and rest our feet. We ordered sandwiches and pastries and ate them at their outside tables. The food was delicious and the lines were long as we left. Nice and friendly staff.

I've been here 3 times for breakfast and a quick lunch. It was always all delicious! The stuff has been always very kind! I loved the canel ball (skillingsboller). Modest prices!

Before returning to our cruise ship we popped into this very busy and popular bakery for coffee and scones (delicious) . Tantalising fresh pastries and cakes were also on view. The staff behind the counter were very helpful. Seating outside was occupied so we sat at the rear of bakery to enjoy our purchase and a well earned rest.

Ate cakes and drank coffee in this lovely little bakery. Not expensive but a great choice of food and drinks which used by locals and tourists alike. The staff are very friendly and helpful even when tourists mangle the Norweigans for a particular type of cake

The coffee here is very good, but I guess 'very good' is just a relative term - if it's what you are used to. I tend to just order black coffee through Europe as I am usually disappointed in cappuccino or espresso coffee but this bakery is terrific. The coffee is excellent. The prices for Oslo are also very good,... More

Located in he heart of Oslo and with tables and chairs outside this is a great spot to take a break and grab a coffee. As well as coffee we had some fresh apple juice which was good and some other refreshments. We opted for a few pastries but to be honest they were a bit dry and not all... More

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.

Thank Lauren B
