Flying over Norway and into Oslo in the late autumn is somewhat spectacular. The lakes and fjords sport trimmings of snowfall, with swathes of green and brown foliage and endless forests running between. I flew in an hour before sunset and marvelled as the low-lying valley mist and cotton wool clouds were lit up pink and orange. A sea of toy town houses with red roofs and white walls scattered across fields ploughed golden after the harvest.

I’ll stop waxing lyrical about Norway now and get to the crux of this post – gluten free Oslo! I was pregnant when I visited and so I ate A LOT. Lucky for you lot that means I have tonnes of gluten free Oslo trips to share with you all.

Once I was there, I found it fairly easy to find safe gluten free options, but there is very limited information on the internet about gluten free Oslo in English so I hope my recommendations are helpful to other coeliacs visiting Oslo.

This gluten free guide focuses mainly on food options, but I recommend the Lonely Planet Norway guide if you want lots of helpful activity and travel tips.

I visited a couple of years ago, so as of January 2022 I have reviewed this guide and made some updates. A helpful Oslo-based coeliac sent me some wonderful tips and I also consulted the Norwegian coeliac society website. As well as doing some additional research to locate safe eateries.

Gluten Free Oslo Food Guide



A chain of upmarket Italian restaurants across Norway and there are a couple of Olivia restaurants in Oslo. They have gluten free pizzas and pasta (including lasagne) and coeliac friendly cooking processes. I tried their pizza and it was delish.

*update* Recent information shared with me is that they cook the pizzas on dedicated gf trays, but in the same oven as normal pizza, so please only eat here if you feel comfortable with that process.

Peppes Pizza

I didn’t eat here but this chain of pizzerias is recommend on the Norwegian coeliac society website. I also read various coeliac friendly reviews online saying their gluten free pizza is prepared in a dedicated area.

Hos Thea

This lovely-looking restaurant, which focuses on seasonal food, is recommended by the Norwegian Coeliac Society


Also recommended by the coeliac society, with a cool interior and menu of Asian food and cocktails.

Elias Mat & Sant

For Norwegian and Scandinavian food, this restaurant has been well rated by other gluten free travellers as being coeliac friendly. They are also able to accomodate other dietary requirements.

Funky Fresh Foods

This vegan restaurant has plenty of gluten free options on the menu. One I didn’t visit myself by it is recommended by the society.

Creperie de Mari

There are a couple of these in Oslo. They offer gluten free galettes but I didn’t eat there as I wasn’t 100% happy from a coeliac perspective. They use the same surfaces but cook an in-between gluten free galette to clean the hob. Then make yours fresh. If you are happy with this then give it a try as their menu looked yummy. However, I would steer clear if you are coeliac.


Does this count as a restaurant?? Either way it’s going here as everyone need to know that they have gluten free McDonald’s in Norway! Gluten free buns are available for most of the burgers – I had a Big Mac with some fries (also gluten free and coeliac safe…they had sweet potato fries here too) as it just seemed wrong to miss out. They prepare the burgers in a dedicated area to ensure they are safe for coeliacs. Perfect for a quick, cheap dinner in otherwise pricey Norway.

Burger King

And while we are on the subject of burgers, apparently Burger King in Norway also offers gluten free buns that are accredited by the Norwegian coeliac society. Gluten free Oslo you are spoiling us with your gluten free fast food choices!

Bakeries & Cafes

Oslo Raw

Oslo Raw sis a fully gluten free raw bakery cafe. They have preeeetty cakes and it’s such a sweet like place – it is slightly off the main tourist trail but I think it’s worth the walk. Either grab a cake to takeaway or sit in and have a light bite and a drink. I tried their gluten free chocolate caramel snickers bar, which was an amaaazing treat – wonderful caramel filling and rich chocolate layers.

Baker Hansen

This chain of bakeries can be found across Oslo and they have a big gluten free range with good processes to prevent cross contamination. Their gluten free bread is lovely and fresh and they can make you a gluten free sandwich if you ask (prepared on a dedicated board as standard and in a separate area if you ask).

I also loved their yoghurt and gf granola pot (excellent granola, you can buy it by the bag too – lots of nuts and dried fruit). They also had a number of gluten free cakes, which they keep in a separate area and serve with dedicated gluten free tongs. I had this (below pic) immense cake of dreeeeams from Baker Hansen. It’s a sort of Norwegian cinnamon bun with custard on top OH YEEEAHHHH.

Pur Oslo

All of the cakes and salads here are gluten free (as well as dairy and soy free, plus some are vegan).

Kulturehuset Oslo

A very cool little cafe that sometimes has gluten free cakes available.


Recommended by the coeliac society, as you can guess by the name this eatery specialises in soup! Lots of gf options indicated on their website, so could be a nice warming lunch stop.

Food Markets

Note the following information may not be fully up to date, as I could not find current details online when researching in 2022. But hopefully a good starting point:

Mathallen Food Market

A fancy food market that is a strong foodie contender. I had a wander around and spotted a few gluten free options, but these might change often:

  • Noodles does gluten free Asian soup and pad thai.
  • Stangeriet has gluten free roasted meat options.
  • Frukt & Gront sells some gluten free snacks.
  • Atelier has a few gluten free tapas options.

Be sure to check out the upstairs fancy restaurants and cosy bars too.

Steen & Strom Food Court

A big department store in the centre that I wandered into on a cold evening and I ended up finding a wonderful dinner spot! Firstly, the little supermarket here sells a range of gluten free products. Secondly, a few of the restaurants downstairs have gluten free options.

I had sushi from Jonathan’s, who offer gluten free soy sauce and have allergens marked on their menu.

Train Station & Airport Options

Note the following information may not be fully up to date, as I could not find current details online when researching in 2022. But hopefully a good starting point:

Central Train Station 

A quick low down of the gluten free choices I spotted in the station. There may well be more I missed bu the long and short of it is that I spotted a good number of gluten free options:

  • Cafe Ritazza has D&Co individually sealed gluten free toasties.
  • Deli di Luca has sealed gluten free muffins and the prepacked D&Co gluten free cheese and ham panninis.
  • Uppercrust had some sealed gluten free cookies.
  • La Baguette offers gluten free bread (check about potential cross contamination though).
  • Burger King has gluten free, coeliac safe burgers.

Also attached to the station are restaurants Olivia and Egon, both of which have gluten free options. I also planned ahead and grabbed myself a Baker Hansen gluten free sandwich on my walk to the station (as I wasn’t sure what options would be available there).


I found all the supermarkets in Oslo were well stocked with gluten free products. If you are self-catering you won’t have a problem finding gluten free bread, flour, pasta, biscuits etc. Bear in mind they are expensive though so it might be worth bringing some from home if you are on a budget.

That’s it for my gluten free Oslo guide. If you want more gluten free tips then check out some of my other gluten free travel guides:
