Eating out in Oslo can be expensive but the quality of the food is of high standards. Norway is extremely popular for its fresh fish, particularly Salmon, organic products and fresh bread. Norwegians love their bread! You will find many bakeries serving daily baked breads, sandwiches and cakes for our kids greatest pleasure.
At BabyBreaks, we have researched the best child-friendly restaurants in Oslo, so you can plan your mealtimes around the city.
1. Lille Tøyen Kolonial
Everything here is about local and organic products. Before becoming a cozy cafe, Lille Tøyen Kolonial was mostly an organic grocery store with Norwegian products.
Now you can also enjoy a selection of fresh food including delicious pastries and homemade pizza.
They even have a local soda: Tøyen Cola.
With soft sofas and outdoor seating, there is plenty of space to welcome your little ones.

Located at the top of Holmenkollen, the restaurant and café is a popular starting point for recreational hiking and skiing in Oslo.
If the weather allows it, sit on the terrace and embrace the gorgeous panoramic views of Oslo and the Oslo Fjord.
They serve traditional and modern Norwegian food, prepared using old methods for preservation, such as smoking, pickling and air curing so it is ideally best to go with older children. But the Café is also open every day, here the little ones can enjoy a wide selection of homemade pastries.
When there is enough snow, you can rent a sled and go on a ride on Oslo’s most popular toboggan run (Korketrekkeren).

Mathallen Oslo is a great indoor food hall in Grünerløkka , with more than 30 specialty shops, cafes and eateries offering high quality products from Norway and all over the world.
The kids will likely enjoy looking at the many vendors selling everything from fruits and vegetables to whale steaks and cured meats. Some of the restaurants have their own tables, but if you prefer to pick and choose a selection of food, there is plenty of eating space in the middle of the hall with long tables and benches. They have high chairs available and the toilets downstairs have changing tables. We find the whole place very child-friendly and enjoyable.
Address: Vulkan 5, 0178 Oslo, Norway
4. Baker Hansen
Best place to come for old-school Norwegian baking made daily with care.
Once a small family bakery which opened in Jernbanetorget area in 1861, they now have stores across Oslo. The bakeries serve all the kids favorites from cinnamon buns to cheese rolls, as well as a big gluten free range of bread and pastries. Worth a try!
