Thousands of people pass by Cafe Fiasco each day without batting an eye. With places to be or people to meet they stream by with determination and purpose. For people-watching it’s the best seat in Oslo.
Cafe Fiasco is situated next to Oslo Plaza at the Oslo Galleri end of the pedestrian bridge between the Oslo Bus Terminal and Oslo S – the perfect backdrop for the daily hustle and bustle staged right outside Fiasco’s doors.
It’s the perfect spot for watching all kinds of stories unfold: couples stroll by hand in hand, business people rush by, tourists start their stay or head back home, while others simply stroll by with the sole intention of challenging the very limits of people-watchers’ imaginations.
They have a few craft brews on tap together with a bottle list with more beers than you can shake a stick at. Hungry? Pick from nine sumptuous burgers or a pulled-pork sandwich. In my opinion, Fiasco is among the five best burger joints around. It’s the only place I know of in Oslo where they cook your patty so that you can still see it used to be meat.
Do yourself a favor and relax a bit at Fiasco before leaving Oslo. Grab a seat below the heaters and watch the world go by. Otherwise you might just find yourself rushing by trying not to miss your bus/train/flight. In either case, I’ll see you there!
