Ullevålseter Oslo Reviews
A good place for a rest Sep 30, 2010
Ullevålseter is located in the southern part of the forest and is in addition to being a café, a hub in the forest with hiking and ski trails. The trails to both Sognsvann and Frognerseteren is lit and can be used at night.
Ullevålseter was originally part of the great Ullevål farm, which once was where Ullevål Univerity Hospital is today. Since 1927 Ullevålseter has been run as a café by the same family. Now it´s Gerd and Reidar Otto Ullevålseter who make sure of the friendly and warm atmosphere. They offer pastries, sandwiches and soup as well as hot and cold drinks. I find it a bit too pricy though. Don´t like to pay $5 for a coke in a café. Sandwiches (a slice of bread with cheese or ham) are $7 and a bowl of soup $10. I bought a cinnamon roll, but was a bit disappointed. It was anything but home made. Most of the cabins in the forest make their own pastires and sandwiches, so I expected the same thing here.
Ullevålseter can get very busy. It´s probably the easiest reached cabin in the forest. It can be reached both in the summer and in the winter. Most of the other cabins can only be reached on skis during the winter. I usually stop here for a rest, but prefer to eat somewhere else. A typical hot drink to get here is the Solbærtoddy. It´s a hot drink made from black current syrup and hot water. Very sweet, but it gives you a lot of energy.

Tuesday-Friday: 10 am – 4 pm
