Kafé Celsius has been around for as long as I can remember and is housed in the oldest protected building from when Oslo was known as Christiania (17th Century). It’s a perfect place to stop off after a visit to Akershus Fortress.
As with many of the other restaurants in the Kvadvaturen area of Oslo, there is a touch of old grandeur about the place. Kafé Celsius has always prided itself on cuisine a cut above the norm – their menu consists of only a few dishes (though the lunch and dinner menus do differ) – a testament to their dedication to providing a quality culinary experience.
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.
Kafé Celsius is a nice spot for food no matter what the thermometer may indicate. When it’s cold outside, Kafé Celsius offers a warm haven from the elements. But when it heats up outside there is ample room in the courtyard or by the square outside to enjoy your food in the sunshine.
