The name may have been changed to Celsius Mat & Vinhus, but “Kafé Celsius” has been around for as long as I can remember and is housed in the oldest preserved 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.
With the winter chill in the air you’ll want to sit inside, warm up and enjoy your delicious food and drink. Maybe you can get a spot near the giant fireplace.
For lunch, choose from salads and sandwiches (shrimp or roast beef) to gravlax or mussels steamed in white wine. For dinner, Celsius dons a traditional Norwegian chef’s hat and offers a number of fish and meat dishes, including venison. Vegetarian fare is also available.
