Evita at Teaterplassen is one of my favorite espresso bars in town. Why? A combination of great coffee, delicious cakes, nice food and fantastic smoothies! I also like the location, as Grønland is one of my favorite areas in town.
There are tables outdoors all year, but it can be quite a cold experience in winter. This coffee shop is busy most times, but you will usually find a place to sit down. I love my lazy Sundays when I can sleep in, take a nice walk along Akerselva, and then end my trip with a double latte with vanilla soymilk or a mango smoothie at Evita. They also have a good selection of cakes and sandwiches with several vegetarian options. If you have a sweet tooth, make sure you try their homemade chocolate or carrot cake.
Evita has four branches, three of them situated in the Grønland area. The two other branches in this area are also nice; they are situated at Brugata 17 and Smalgangen 14B. They have the same choice of foods and drinks.
