Grand Café

On ground floor with windows to the Karl Johan Street in Oslo lies the famous restaurant Grand Café, steeped in tradition and one of the city's great meeting places since Henrik Ibsen's days. 

Back when Oslo was called Kristiania, our world-famous dramatist, Henrik Ibsen, would take a daily stroll down to the Grand Café to lunch with some of the most famous writers, artists, academics and diplomats of the day. The restaurant opened in 1874, and quickly became a favoured venue for the capital's cultured bourgeoisie.  There is still a sense of history about the Grand Café.  But time has not stood still.  While we cherish our memories, we do not live in the past.

Today, the Grand Café is a breakfast restaurant, a hectic and popular lunch venue for busy business people, and an "in" place in the evening.  It is both popular and elegant at the same time.
