sunday coffee at wayne’s

Every Sunday afternoon, Knut and I would indulge ourselves with cups of caffe latte and bites of baked goodies while poring over the day’s newspapers at our neighborhood coffeeshop (read: Evita).

This time around, after swinging by the exhibition of 40 international entries for the new Munch  + Stenersen Museum (where Tadao Ando was one of the invited architects) and the new Deichman Library, both to occupy the spaces next to the National Opera by the time of completion, we walked westward and tried Wayne’s Coffee.


A Swedish import, the coffee shop by the National Theater at Vika is one of four Wayne’s Coffee in Oslo. It has stylish interiors with color palettes playing on greens and browns. The coffee choices are varied and the food selection decent. Literature includes coffee table books like this one on hip hotels in New York. I settled with a medium double shot caffe latte which turned to be a potent brew and a chocolate cookie. Knut had the same cup paired with a rich berry pie. I’d definitely come back here and would recommend it to my friends.

    Oh, that building is simply stunning! You must be an excellent photographer to capture its strength and beauty while maintaining its simplicity!
