Food & Drink

A taste of Oslo in Grünerløkka

Jan Vardøen brews, mixes, bakes, and roasts to keep Grünerløkka happy. Here are where to find all his establishments.

Villa Paradiso

Villa Paradiso pizzas and snacks. Beer, wine and Aperol spritz. A great atmosphere and a full house every day. A new branch is also open at Sommerrogata 17, Frogner, in the west end of Oslo.

Focacceria

The focaccia is arguably at least as good as you will find in Liguria. Choose from a range of toppings, including salty Italian anchovies.

Vespa

Cozy café in a lovely old building right next to the Freia chocolate shop. Relax with an espresso and a sandwich while browsing the newspaper. You can also buy a few goodies to take home with you.

Bar Boca

Vardøen’s first establishment. The skilled and friendly bartenders here have been mixing and serving fresh, color­ful drinks since it opened. Unsure of what to choose? They’ll talk you into trying something you probably wouldn’t have imagined.

Nighthawk Diner

Burgers, milkshakes, pancakes and pies served in an authentic atmosphere. Vardøen had American artist Edward Hopper’s painting Nighthawks in mind when he created this restaurant. Open from 7am.
