About Ullevålseter Sportsstue

Ullevålseter Sportsstue is set in the southern part of Nordmarka, at approximately five kilometers from Sognsvann Lake and Frognerseteren—accessible by foot, bike, or skis. It’s owned by the Oslo municipality and run by the same family since 1927. Here you can find hot and cold drinks, waffles, baked goods, cakes, and sandwiches as well as packaged snacks. On weekends soup and hot dogs are also served. It’s closed Monday’s year round but it is usually open Tuesday to Sunday, but opening hours in the winter may vary. Keep updated on opening hours via Ullevålseter Sportsstue the website
