The character of Café Laundromat depends on the time of day. During off-peak hours you’ll fit in perfectly behind your laptop for a light “day at the office” or a serious session of social mediation. It has an open café vibe with plenty of space so that you can be left alone to do what you wanna do. This also makes it the perfect spot for a casual meet-up with friends. Grab a spot in the upstairs alcove and you’ll have plenty of privacy while being perfectly perched to invade that of the other patrons and staff below.
Visit during the evening (like I did, even though it was a Tuesday) and the place is teeming with people exchanging banter and laughter while eating and drinking amidst the vibrant atmosphere they, themselves, create.
Day or night, there’s something unmistakably hipster about Café Laundromat and I’m a bit unsettled about fitting in so well. That being said, it’s an environment I enjoy, and I’ve been there at different times to drink with friends or to participate in Skype-meeting with colleagues.
The management of Café Laundromat really knows what they’re doing. It’s not surprising that two other their other places – People’s and Crow Bar – are among my favourite hang-outs. The beer menu is excellent and you’re also bound to find something expected on tap.
Don’t expect your servers to speak much Norwegian, but I’m guessing if you’re reading this that won’t present much of a problem. Cheers!
Umm… you can also do your laundry here.
