Forget the "best" coffee you've ever. Delete all that. Come here and start again. The best coffee in town....easily. Strong and no bad after taste.

There is not much to say, but go and visit. Walk along the river and across the park to this small but warm coffee shop and enjoy the most smoothest coffee in town. It's worth the trip and costs - I promise.

Fab little coffee house. A bit on the pricey side but that said, you won't find coffee like this in any chain coffee outlets. Not many seats, so your most likely going to take away. I would definitely treat myself to another visit.

Love this place! The shop itself is all about the roasting of the coffee beans - it was a great experience to see the process in action. The coffee roaster explained the process and was very friendly and happy to chat about it. The shop has no seating inside so you take your coffee to outside benches and enjoy the... More

Really good coffee, nice location & 100% worth to go there. It's located in Gruneløkka which is one of the nicest areas for young people.

Definitely not the kind of coffee you'd be served in any of the chains. I do not recommend to order take away and enjoy the serving.

Their coffee is best describe as DIVINE! Even words are not enough to describe the feel of the place. Cool meeting place or just a place to catch up upon your reading. A Gem!

Highly recommended and highly rated and you can see why. These guys just do coffee (not even cakes or tea) and do it VERY well indeed. Roast their own daily and it shows. Might add to the 'experience' to have a few more seats available.

This small place away from the tourist track is a must for a coffee loving visitor. With just a few seats inside and outside, you will find a place 100% focused on getting you a special coffee experience. Grünerløkka is a splendid area to visit as well.

relax if small, but comfortable setting- friendly staff- ask them to recommend something; yes it is 'just' coffee but if you travel you know how hard it is to find a good cup sometimes in the world of st*rbux mediocrity. Stop by here mid day after a day of walking about and sit on one of the sidewalk benches and... More
