Popular tradition

Here at the Grand Hotel Oslo, we have served Afternoon Tea for a number of years, in the historic Palmen Restaurant which is part of the original structure from 1874. What used to be a stable, is today an elegant room with a pleasant atmosphere – beautifully decorated with furniture in velvet and artwork on the walls.

Our tasty Afternoon Tea menu changes seasonally, but always consists of delicious sandwiches, freshly baked scones, sweet pastries and tempting confections. The tea is supplied by our partner, Palais des Thés, which for several decades has been one of the leading experts in the global tea market. See our menu above.

Welcome to Afternoon Tea at the venerable Grand Hotel Oslo! Taste Grand – Feel Grand.

Some history

Afternoon Tea is a concept that was introduced to the British society in the middle of the 19th century, with the intention of taming the hunger that appeared between lunch and dinner. By the middle of the 19th century, tea had become widespread in England, and afternoon tea developed into a separate meal and a social affair with several tasty dishes and the finest serving equipment. What started as an upper-class phenomenon has now become a more common tradition and has increased in popularity in several countries, including Norway.
