With award-winning cuisine, customizable bowls and rotating specials, this solid top contender is a fan favorite among both veg and nonvegans.

Heralded by reviewers as “the best juice in Oslo,” this franchise pours its heart and soul into its fresh, healthy and filling fare. Acai bowls, smoothies and juices can all be had at slightly expensive price points. Still, a solid investment for a refreshing pick-me-up during your stay in Oslo.

Housed in a traditional wood-paneled, standalone barn, this cozy little cafe serves delicious and freshly made raffles, coffee and baked goods. Pick up some vegan essentials on your way out, as this cafe doubles as a natural/organic general goods store. The best of both worlds!
