We had just toured the city hall, and it was windy/rainy, so we took a brief break for coffee/juice and a cookie. It isn't a big place, but it's pleasant and comfortable, with good service, reasonable prices and tasty offerings.

If you fancy a quick vegetarian meal, this is a good option. They have soup of the day and meal of the day, and a few more dishes already made. Food is good and the people working there are in a good mood.

Wonderful cafe easy access off well-traveled street in center of Oslo - courteous, helpful, and knowledgeable about the wide-variety of home cooked soups and goodies. First raspberry cheesecake (gluten-free & vegan) in ages. Will go back before I leave!

We really enjoyed this little cafe. Nice gluten free options for my daughter and we both loved our soup on a chilly September day. I thought the prices were reasonable for downtown Oslo. The GF chocolate cake made my daughter very happy:).

When you are traveling and tired of eating rich restaurant food, this is a must. We have been stopping here every year we visit Oslo. Usually a lunch stop, they have the best vegan/vegetarian food in Oslo. Very friendly and a great, easy location right...More
