A newcomer in town, opened in 2020. Here you can enjoy a seasonal, local menu with some fine cocktails on the side. By and large the menu consists of small sharing dishes including white fish croquettes, pancake with sour cream and roe, oysters and potato lefse (Norwegian pastry) with lamb skewers and red cabbage. The menu can change from day to day, and the menu is not ready until the same day. On weekends lunch is served until 4pm and dinner starts at 5pm. They always serve snacks like olives, bread & butter, potato chips and different kinds of pastrami.

The Vandelay is the Maaemo team’s everyday restaurant in Bjørvika. The world class avant-garde offers classic dishes that looks ordinary but are spectacular and salivating: including cod with mussels in spinach and celery sauce, The Vandelay cheeseburger, greens in almonds and artichoke puré and oysters with seasonal herbs and spice. The menu is seasonal and changes regularly. Book ahead, it can be difficult to get a table.
Operagata 30, 0194 Oslo
Look no further, Vespa & Humla is the perfect place for a Sunday brunch. Here you can enjoy a big wooden plate filled with the creamy scrambled eggs, bacon if you like, wholemeal bread and a fresh salad. Served the way you want to be served breakfast in bed. The only downside is the wait for a table on Sunday. If you want to plan ahead, it’s good to know that table reservations for the weekend close on Friday.

Salt, sweet, salt, sweet. Liebling is always the place to go for a delicious lunch. The classical lunch package includes rye bread with avocado or beetroot hummus, small yoghurt with homemade granola, croissant of your choice, and coffee or juice. If you have a taste for Brazil, this is one of best açai bowl in town. No joke.
Øvrefoss 4, 0555 Oslo
Oslo Raw is by far the best place to go for a tasteful, raw lunch, including vegan bites and healthy juices. You don’t have to be vegan or fan of Insta-friendly lunches, because this place manages what so many raw places doesn’t. Some of the raw goodies you can enjoy here are avocado toast with chilli, chia porridge and açai bowl, salty waffles, and several raw cakes. I recommend the branch at Adamstuen. Small, cozy spot with less noise and less Insta frenzy. Especially on a warm summer day, you can enjoy the outdoor seating while you enjoy the raw goodies.
