For a “small” capital city, Oslo has an impressive number of cafés. One that I keep finding my way back to is Kaffeglasset*… a cozy little spot with lots of windows for people-watching and sun-warming. Kaffeglasset also serves food, but so far I’ve only come for the coffee and the free access to their nice stack of fashion magazines. (Yes, I said it.) I prefer my shallow, dreams-of-a-fashionable-and-skinnier-me-reading with a single cortado at my hand. How can I have been drinking coffee for almost 15 years and never have known the joys of a cortado?! I had my first one here, and I think we’re in it for the long haul. With or without the magazines.
Kaffeglasset is located at Osterhaus gate 14, Oslo
*Kaffeglasset is now closed and has become Taco Republica. Dammit, I’ll miss that chandelier and their cortados, but I’m looking forward to seeing how Oslo does Tex-Mex at Taco Republica. I’ll be sure to let you know!
