You simply can’t visit Oslo and not go to Tim Wendelboe’s infamous coffee shop slash roastery at the corner of Grunersgate, it’s just that simple. This is not only Oslo’s #1 place for coffee, Tim’s coffees are world-renowned for their light roasting style. You won’t be disappointed – that’s a promise!
The shop has only a few seats, so this is not a place to linger. On weekends you might catch the end of the line curling its way out the doors, but I promise you – what awaits it totally worth it. Whether you go for an espresso, an aeropress, or a velvety ice coffee you’ll forget all about the wait. Besides, those minutes are perfect for people watching anyways. My personal summer favorite, is the anisetta ice coffee. It’s quite different, a little liquorice-y, but oh so tasty! Do give it a go if it’s on the menu. Or try the tasting menu to try several coffees at once – perfect is you with a friend!
You should definitely try and buy some beans while you are here, and if you don’t have a grinder at home– the barista will be happy to grind them for you! The perfect little Oslo souvenir.
