Oslo: Best Places For Coffee


If you've been following us for long enough, you'd know that we love coffee almost as much as we love food. Here we are in Norway, the second highest coffee drinking nation in the world, so naturally we made it our quest to find Oslo's best cup of coffee. 


The best places are well documented across the web and we are very aware that we didn't get chance to visit some of the most famous places, but non the less, here is our top five.

1. Hendrix Ibsen
Vulkan 20, 0178 Oslo
★★★★


On top comes Hendrix Ibsen, a coffee shop inspired by music and Jimi himself. As well as a shop area full of classic rock vinyls and the finest coffee equipment is an amazing cafe selling a wide range of your regular drinks and light bites. But to make this place even more unique comes the Nitro Coffee. It is the first place in Norway to sell this iced drink, which is served on draught like a beer. It is extremely strong and certainly powered us up for a long day of exploring. 

2. Talor and Jørgen
Youngs Gate 9, 0181 Oslo
★★★★


Inspired by a recommendation from Bean there at, our first stop on James' birthday was Talor and Jørgen. To our surprise there wasn't a seating area inside, but we relaxed by the coffee bar chatting to the owner about his cafe and the amazing treats on offer. The salted caramel popcorn and oreo doughnuts were divine, and we were in complete envy of the previous customer who took a box of 12 away with her. Norway tends to prefer filter coffee instead of the likes of cappuccinos and lattes, but they were very happy to make us two cappuccinos which were perfect too.

3. Peleton
Torggata 35, 0183 Oslo
★★★★



Peleton is a bike inspired cafe and restaurant with not only fantastic coffee, but with a specialism in pizza. Unfortunately we didn't get to try any food, but the decor was far from plain and in the coffee we found the perfect way to watch the world go by before setting out on a long afternoon walk.

4. Nor​ð & Natt
Hagegata 22-24, 0608 Oslo
★★


We didn't come to Nor​ð & Natt especially for the coffee - we got far more than that and you can read all about it here. Coming at the end of a memorable meal we tried out two different Norwegian blends, typical of their filter coffee culture. 

5. Cafe Roleur
Ullevålsveien 16A, 0171 Oslo
★★



After an afternoon out at Vigelandsparken, we made our way back into town and ready for a warming drink. Cafe Roleur is perhaps equally as famous for its wine and beer offering, but we stayed only for a taste of their Columbian blend coffee, which with hints of caramel was very tasty indeed. 

Visiting in the middle of a very long Scandinavian winter, it was easy to see how Norway gets through 9.9kg of coffee per capita, per year. We found ourselves seeking it several times a day and we weren't let down in the places that we found. 

Have you been to Oslo? Been to any of these places or found some of your own gems? Let us know in the comments below.

  10. I’m not much of a coffee drinker - perhaps because I haven’t had the right cup of coffee - but these pictures are having me rethink trying coffee again! I also love the sound of the salted caramel popcorn and oreo donuts! I would love to travel to Oslo; definitely bookmarking this for future reference!

  15. I absolutely adore the smell of coffee, walking into a coffee shop where they’re brewing it fresh is like stepping into heaven! The taste, however, I’m just not a fan of! I don’t mind it in desserts but I’ve never managed to drink a full cup of coffee! Oops... I’m sure that the doughnuts at Talor and Jørgen could tempt me instead though, they sound delish!
