Topic: Coffee in Scandanavia (13 msgs / 230 lines)
1) From: Maria Penon
We are headed for a Atlantic cruise to Scandinavia and a quick flight home.
The "we" are 18 of my great friends here in the resort. We're going to take
a cruise of 16 days and tour the four Scandinavian countries and then a
flight home through NYC.   I am posting now to ask - anyone know of any
really great coffee spots in Sweden, Norway, Norway or Finland?   I have a
lead in Finland but nowhere else.  I'm totally open because I've never been
to any of these countries.

Hi Maria,
I suppose you will visit the larger  towns Stochholm and Oslo, here is a
place in Oslo that has a good reputation, but I have never been there:
Stockfleth's Oslo City
Steners gate 1
0050 Oslo
phone: 22 17 08 22
You should consider signing on at
www.toomuchcoffee.com
and ask the same question in the fforum at this site.
Are you not going to visit Denmark? not  tha
t I have many places that are good here, but I could find a few places I am
sure.

Hold the phone, MO-
Gretchen, my soon-to-be daughter in law, is a gorgeous Finn. I know not
whether they've ever revisited the Fatherland, just Billings to Denver is a
path well worn.
I'll post if I glean any useful tips. They're getting married in some
idyllic setting on her grandmother's ranch in MT, so even the several haunts
in Billings were unfamiliar.
Cheers -RayO, aka Opa!

This will be my first visit to Finland.  I've already been warned that
Finn's don't sleep and can outdrink a platoon of Americans - but since
coffee is about all I'll be doing I'm feeling pretty secure.  We fly to NYC
a week from tomorrow and board the liner there.
Cheers Opa!  or is that redundant?

I will log on and ask my question on too much coffee as well.  That name is
a pun right?  I mean can there ever be too much coffee?
I did a quick google on Stockfleths and it appears to be a walk up espresso
bar in the entry way of a major mall.   If its a mall I'm sure the gang wil=
l
want to go leave lots of money so I'll put this one on the list.
Tak (thanks)

MO, you worry "can there ever be too much coffee?"
There can be even more than that, especially when it has a measurable Half
Life, and you should wear a dosimeter when handling the Dreck purveyed by
the likes of our favorite Fall Guy.
This commercial establishment seems to roast in a forest fire, and charges
Fourbucks for the results. This coffee emporium sells coffee-based items
without actually selling any coffee. It's just a catalyst.
A percentage [I hate that word] of the Fourbucks applies to a Hasmat
disposal and wildlife relocation fee.
Here comes my gender sensitive, age-related closing:
Cheers -Opa!

Claus,
I don't know how I missed your original post - but yes.  We will spend a
couple of days in Norway - hardly enough time to look for Ole and Lena -
Ufda!   We are scheduled for a motor tour of Copenhagen including the
walking streets (I don't know how they plan THAT) and Tivoli, and I imagine
the big X will have at least a half dozen good  coffee shops.  But I'm open
to your suggestion so list them and I'll do my best to find them.   My son
tells me that I have to eat one meal in the Blue Dolphin Inn.  We'll see!

I didn't know Opa! was gender sensative.  I thought it was what we shouted
as we sloshed brew on each other.

"Opa" is German for "Grandpa". "Grandfather" would be "Gro▀vater " (liter=
aly
"large father"),  Opa is a diminutive usually used by children.
When sloshing beer it's "Prosit!"

A good friend is Greek. The first time at a Greek restaurant I had to
explain why I found "OPA!" so funny.
