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 fall in the chilly air and the leaves on the ground you’ll want to sit inside 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.
