A brand New restaurant since the last time I was there. Nice impression, friendly, preordered table which seemed useful. Friendly staff. The waiter asked if we would like to order wine ready for us for the intermission, a good idea! Messaged the theatre suggesting to...More

We came recommended, but we neglected the advise to invest a bit of time for eating. After all, Kafe Love is a lobby restaurant for the Norwegian Theatre, and you don't want to spent two hours or more to eat before the show? We ended...More

Remember Michael Douglas in the movie Falling Down? I just felt like him... This cafe has a coffee machine, but choose not to use it because they think that coffee is something that people who come to the theater don't want? No soup/coffee for you....More

This is a place easily overseen. It seems like a modest place, but offers really tasty food, both for lunch and dinner (they open at eleven, so no breakfast). The menu changes often, so it is hard to recommend anything special, but most of the...More

I had a quick lunch here and it proved to be quite nice. The daily special open sandwich was delicate, made to order and served with a fresh salad. The place was rather busy but the stafff was attentive and service was good.
