*Review in English from a tourist standpoint* Kaffistova is the PERFECT place to stop for lunch on a day-long tour of Oslo. Here, you can have a very traditional Norwegian meal at a fair price in a cafeteria-style restaurant with lots of seating and super friendly, English-speaking staff. You'll be able relax in a comfortable setting and enjoy some authentic, good-value Norwegian dishes, but not feel like you are using up valuable sightseeing time and paying high prices like you would at a table-service restaurant. There are a few reasons that we loved this place. The first, of course, was the food. They offer a lot of authentic Norwegian dishes, mostly centered around meat and potatoes. We got the meatballs (always available) and the lamb (in season right now). Both dishes came with potatoes and a vegetable, and the meatballs came with lingonberry sauce too. You order at a counter, and all the food is prepared and served cafeteria style, so the whole process of getting your food only takes a few minutes. However, despite being already cooked ahead of time, the food tastes amazing: super fresh and flavorful. They also have a large selection of Norwegian and other more popular drinks. The staff speaks English and can answer any questions you have. They have good allergy info for all the plates as well. The second reason we loved this place was the price. Yes, it's expensive compared to most other European nations (even compared to London...the cheapest plate here is just under $20 US), but Norway is an overall pricey country, and the value here is amazing compared to most of the other restaurants we looked at in Oslo. The portion size is also huge, and many couples could probably split a large plate. The third reason we liked Kaffistova is the setting. The restaurant is HUGE (they have a large downstairs if the ground floor is full), well located (just steps away from the Grand Hotel and Parliament and right next to a tram line), and comfortable. Bathrooms are large and clean. If you are looking for a fast bite to eat, but are craving some down-home Norwegian cooking at a fair price, then look no further than Kaffistova!
Eplekake is delicious. It isn’t too sweet. Just suit.
Lovely warm atmosphere, friendly staff and great homely Norwegian food! Worth a visit especially if you have the Oslo pass with 20% off. Don't worry about the menu being in Norwegian as the staff will happily guide you through it. They don't accept tips but definitely deserve them!
