Taste of Berlin: Oslo Kaffebar

A Piece of Norway in Berlin

Since coffee continues to be a hot topic in Berlin, we have one more reason to check out another new café

What's on offer?

The Oslo Kaffebar oozes Scandinavian charm thanks to the ample modern furnishings in light-coloured wood. As the name suggests, the focus here is on coffee creations. On hot summer days the coffee is even served as a cold drink. What’s more, the café also sells many different kinds of coffee – and espresso beans. However, if you feel like a hot chocolate or a chai latte, you’ll find it here, too. They also have delicious full-grain sandwiches, croissants, pain au chocolat, and an alternating selection of cakes.

How does it taste?

Without thinking twice, I order a cappuccino, which wakes me up – it’s still early in the day – and tastes delicious. The coffee aroma makes me feel like a croissant: with pleasure I tear up the still-warm pastry on my plate and dunk small pieces into my coffee. The combination tastes excellent. Puff pastry flakes cover my whole plate. Just as they should.

What else?

What absolutely sets the Oslo Kaffebar apart are the unusual cups which the coffee is served in: they are dark brown to black, light as a feather, and made from coffee grounds. The Oslo Kaffebar was the first café to buy these cups from the young Berlin product designer Julian Lechner, and to use them in service. I am impressed because the cups are not only light and look great, but don’t break if you drop them.

By the way...

The cups are available in espresso and cappuccino format. They are sold under the brand name Kaffeeform and are now going on the Pop into Berlin-Tour where they will be exhibited and sold in the Berlin pop-up shops in Warsaw, Madrid, and Zurich!

Résumé

An all-round beautiful café with style, friendly service, and delicious food and drinks. The café can be found in Eichendorffstraße, a small side street near the Nordbahnhof station. It‘s also ideal for sitting outside in good weather. Oslo Kaffebar Berlin, Eichendorffstraße 13, price range: medium
