Fuglen

Fuglen in Oslo, established in 1963, has preserved its retro interior, offering a distinctive coffee and cocktail experience. The original Universitetsgata location, with its authentic 1960s decor, serves not just as our favourite coffee venue, but as a shop where every piece of furniture is for sale. The concept marries Scandinavian design heritage with a modern café culture. The dual-life of Fuglen, transitioning from a serene coffee shop by day to a lively cocktail bar by night, enriches Oslo’s urban fabric.

Mocca, situated in Oslo’s Briskeby neighbourhood, emerged in 2000 as Norway’s pioneering micro roastery, capturing the essence of specialty coffee culture. Under the stewardship of Robert W. Thoresen, Mocca has solidified its reputation as a haven for coffee connoisseurs. This coffee shop, celebrated for offering some of the finest coffee in Oslo, has cultivated an environment where both seasoned aficionados and casual sippers can enjoy their cup in a tranquil setting. Although its roastery operations have since relocated to Ryen, now operating under the name Kaffa, Mocca’s commitment to premium coffee experiences remains unchanged, setting a benchmark for local coffee craftsmanship​​​​.
