The Nighthawk Diner
Diner, American, $$$
Named for the diner in the famous Hopper painting, The Nighthawk Diner is a pleasant surprise for any homesick Americans rambling around Oslo; as soon as you walk in, you’ll notice the telltale bright chrome decor of fifties-style American diners. Sidle up to the long L-shaped table and take your pick from a menu of classic American diner grub, like pancakes, hamburgers, milkshakes, pies, fresh juices, and of course, a regular cup of joe. All the handcrafted furniture has been imported from the U.S., along with a stunning old jukebox which is a bit of a starring attraction at this venue. The kitchen make all their own sauces and mayonnaise, which are part of the magic behind dishes like the pulled pork and the chili con carne. The quality of the food and service draws a lot of people in, so try to get there a little early to snag your own slice of apple pie at this cute, kitschy Oslo outpost for all things Americana.
