I go here often with my husband or friends and it never disappoints. Chai latte is my favourite here, and they also serve delicious sandwiches and salads. Only thing that I find slightly overpriced is the cake - between 50-60 kroner for one piece.

Went there for a lunch. I took a kind of club sandwich chef special and my girlfriend took a goat cheese salad. For dessert we took brownies which were very tasty.

A really nice cafe with good atmosphere. Great coffee - extra good if it is made by Tor :-) Food is really good as well. Try out the Babels Club or Foccacia with Chicken, Mango and Curry. Chicken sallad and Chili burger is also worth trying. Can be crowded Saturday afternoon.
