Delicious soup, the cakes are good but a little bit on the heavy side, but we were happy to try a vegan cheese cake! Nice atmosphere

We stopped by at this place after visiting the city hall for a quick lunch. This place offered vegetarian dishes with pretty good taste. Soups were great.

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!
