Sunday in Oslo was filled with walking around various museums.these included modern art, design museum and the national gallery. The national gallery was virtually closed when we visited but they had left a little room open where some of Much’s famous paintings could be found. You know the one, the man with hands either side of his face screaming (This one).
I’m not suggesting with the title of this post that we had two breakfasts on Sunday (although we sort of did as we ordered a pumpkin soup on top of breakfast), more that I’d like to share the two very different, but equally tasty breakfasts with you.
Our first breakfast was just down the road from our hotel. We took a brisk walk through the park surrounding the palace – brisk so that we could satisfy our grumbling stomachs quicker – and came across Apent Bakeri.
Apent Bakeri will pull you in and keep you there when you see the size of their pain au chocolat, their croissant or the range of bread they have to offer. It’s not too expensive (for Oslo), and is a great place to sit and people watch. There’s quite a lot of them around Oslo and so they shouldn’t be too hard to find. If you’re after a quick breakfast and a decent coffee then definitely go to one.
Sunday’s breakfast was all about walking in the rain, skipping over puddles and thawing out on a swinging bench, playing board games by candle light and just generally taking our time. Liebling was the perfect place for doing all that. It’s a German café which also has some quirky gifts you can buy – think fake moustaches, funny books and some very different clothes. If you want a lazy brunch you should definitely head here.
