The Literature House can be found in Østre Skostredet.
With an informal style, the brasserie and café stand out with their rustic and personal touch.

The café is open all day from lunch to dinner. The brasserie opens in the evening and offers an a la carte menu and a 3-course menu. In the time between day and evening, from three to five, we offer a slightly smaller menu. On Saturday mornings, we also offer a popular two-course bubble lunch.

The kitchen is known for its classic dishes inspired by Nordic and continental traditions and a rich wine list. Wines from classic wine regions and a large selection of natural wines.

We serve food and drinks in The Literature House's meeting rooms and at your events.
