You 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.
The shop only has 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 is worth it. If 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 favourite, at least this time of year, is the anisetta ice coffee. It’s quite different, a little liquorice-y, but oh so tasty.
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 do it for you!
