Kafé Celsius has been around much longer than me and is housed in the oldest protected building from when Oslo was known as Christiania (17th Century). It’s a nice place to stop off in connection with a visit to Akershus Fortress.
There is a touch of old grandeur about the place. Situated in the Kvadraturen area of Oslo, Kafé Celsius has always prided itself on cuisine a cut above the norm – their menu consists of only a few dishes (lunch and dinner menus do differ) – as they are dedicated to providing a quality culinary experience.
It’s the perfect place to seek shelter from the snow and cold while meeting with a friend or loved one. They have a man-sized fireplace that radiates warmth; you’re certain to actually appreciate the season (and the good food!).
For lunch, choose from salad and sandwiches (shrimp or roast beef) to gravlax or mussels steamed in white wine. For dinner, Kafé Celsius dons a traditional Norwegian chef’s hat and offers a number of fish and meat dishes, including venison. Vegetarian fare is also available.
