Enjoying Grand Café's extensive and delicious breakfast buffet is a treat after a very late night on the town. Open from 6:30 am.

Grand Café's open-faced shrimp sandwich is fantastic!
Grand café is one of Oslo's legendary restaurants. It was a favorite haunt of the Christiania Bohemians, a band of 19th century artists and intellectuals who used to hang here, often drinking absinthe. They can all be spotted in the large mural on the back wall. To the left is pictured famous playwright Henrik Ibsen. He had his own table at Grand Café and used to come twice a day to read and have a beer. His table is still there. The central location on Oslo's main street, along with the excellent food, makes it a popular choice for business lunches. Grand Café offer a popular jazz brunch every Sunday 12:00 - 4:00 pm.
