We walked back home from the west side of the city to the east and on the way discovered this 'new' cafe (as of this summer) called the Laundromat Cafe in Bislett. It's a Danish concept combining a laundry with a cafe and the possibility of accessing the internet. It also suprisingly has a large library, with over 3,000 Norwegian and international magazines and books available. It looks informal, relaxed and seems to be where many beautiful people hang out! Through the window one can see rows of books and dark brown wooden walls, flowered wallpaper and retro armchairs, although where the washing machines are i'm not so sure. It reminded me of lazy sundays in London when my husband and i would sometimes hang out in Queens Park, first at the Farmers market where we went for fresh veggies, fruit, cakes and other delicious things and then would grab a coffee and read the sunday papers somewhere.
We actually ended up eating at the Vega Cafe, a vegetarian restaurant that offers a huge buffet lunch for very little on sundays. We had a delicious soup and a vegan and a gluten free lasagna which made our tummies very happy.
By the time we got to Grunerløkka Theo was asleep and i was able to happily browse through beautiful handmade thingsat the sunday market by the river outside the club Blå. It's open every sunday and before christmas both saturday and sunday. Here you can find Knit wear, jewellery, ceramics, glass, wool, clothes, toys, paintings, bags etc. There are always a few stalls selling waffles, jam and coffee too which makes the experience more pleasant in the winter. Sadly i had no cash with me, otherwise i would have come home with some adorable felt baby booties.
Finally we came home to make Boller with papa, which was a big hit with Theodore having not seen him all weekend.
What did you get up to this sunday?
