My favorite cafe in Oslo, hands down. And while it has the comforts of my homeland (USA), the reason I love it so much has nothing to do with the USA. Sure, the food is authentic and I can get my chili, cornbread, or mac n cheese fix whenever I want, but I go here first and foremost for the impeccable service.

It is extremely difficult to find such quality service in Oslo. When you walk into a place you don't expect to be greeted with a hello, let alone your NAME. Yes, when I walk into Cafe Fedora, I am greeted by name and with many smiles.

The atmosphere is very inviting and colorful. The people that go to this place are equally as inviting. I have had several people talk to me while in there...something that is again, rare to find in Oslo.

I always try a different tea when I am there and each has been very delicious. Every item I've ordered off of the menu has been especially fulfilling and left me raving about it for days. The only reason I can't get in there daily is because my measly salary in expensive Oslo doesn't allow it. But this place is affordable compared to other cafes.

Definitely a must if you're in Oslo! :)

Café Fedora is one of the most welcoming place in Oslo. The homemade American food and drinks taste really good. As the place is not too big (about 15 seats inside) and wifi is free, I spent hours working or reading there. A terrasse is also available to sit outside on Summer days.

If you are American and feeling homesick this is the place you want to go. If you are not American but still miss a warm welcome go there too! :)

Lastly if you're not convinced check their Facebook page!

Cafe Fedora is the only true authentic American restaurant I've encountered in Norway. The food is always fresh and delicious. Their pecan pie is one of the best I've ever had, as is their mac and cheese - even counting the US. I can't express my excitement when I found this cozy restaurant on a random Saturday. As a southerner, good soul food is something I certainly crave in Norway, and this place really captures the essence of Southern and Tex-Mex cuisine. The owners are also delightful people who compliment the ambience of the restaurant wonderfully. I can't praise this place enough!

Perfect spot for us to visit on our first weekend in Oslo. The owners, Nicole and Anthony, provided great service and a warm welcome. We'll be back on a Friday! I had the breakfast burrito and the husband had the omelet. The cappuccino and mocha were also tasty.
