All-purpose bar-restaurant for the better-healed dressed-down younger person and friends. High quality beer list with novelties from better micros on tap and a lot of sophisticated stuff in bottle. All day breakfast and fast food au petit chic. Ten minutes from the centre on trams 17 or 18 to Bislett stadium. Worth the trip out.
Chill spot is chill. Many rooms. Tables, couches and chairs and nooks and ladders. A lot of new and interesting beer to pass the time. Do your laundry too. http://www.flickr.com/photos/michaeljames/11292904284/
One of my favorite beer places in Oslo, partly due to the cool bartenders and awesome upstairs library nook. In general it comes across as a coffee shop, but that birds’ nest up the short spiral staircase is fabulous...dark and lined with books and overlooks the entire place. The other seating areas are just average. Good selection of bottles and taps, so it was easy to have a long session here sampling new stuff.
Now that’s a cool pub. Eccentric interior that looks like some kind of library reading room!! If you want to drink outside they have lots of tables and chairs on the large sidewalk. The place probably sits around 75 inside and about the same outside. We had some thin crust fancy pizzas and they were very good and all other dishes that I saw also looked delicious. Surprisingly not too expensive (relative to Oslo). Tap list is rather limited but they have a nice selection of bottles. A nice beer menu on many pages, a menu that was up to date, something I didn’t find in most Norway pubs I visited. I had the collaboration BrewDog Nøgne Ø Mikkeller Black Tokyo and it was 50% cheaper than at Amundsen!!! (error on the menu?). Indie-alternative rock music with a ‘cool’ Norwegian crowd that was borderline hipsters. This is halfway between a resto-pub and true pub, so depending on your mood you can go there and have a meal and a beer, or just drink a ton of beer without eating. I liked that place.
Nice atmpshere & good outside seating ( shadow in afternoon). Good bottle selection ( about 50?) Some good things on tap.

Never went there before because is always so full. But in a sunday afternoon there was some place to breathe. Good selection on botled macros and micros from Europe and the States, 5 on tap. Nice variety of Nøgne Ø brews. Good service at the bar. Did not eat, maybe next time. Relaxed ambiance with a few ice & water suckers taking advantage of the free wi-fi. Worth the visit if is not so freaking full.

Café Laundromat is a very charming place with retro style, old telephones, cosy old-style furniture, a small open loft-room where you can view the whole cafe from above and thousands of books! They have over 4000 books, which is the largest private owned library in Oslo. Bookworms will love this place! And of course beer nerds,they have a good selection of bottles (nearly 200 bottles with 8 taps).
The waiters are nice, their menu is extensive: salad, burgers, pizza, breakfast and more. They have a good selection of bottled beers. They are also sponsors of Save the Children and Doctors without Borders.
The place seems to be busy all the time, but it has a relaxed tone and is not too noisy. The coffee is good, and I´ve heard the burgers are real good.They have some tables outside on a small balcony by the road – good for sunny days, but a bit noisy with the tram passing by every 5th minute. This place is good for everything: a nice meal with friends, while you re waiting for your laundry,you can have a Nøgne Tiger Tripple from the tap ,surfing the net, reading books – or just to hang out and have a good time!
