108 the Corner is a combined coffee shop and wine bar adjacent to the one-Michelin-starred restaurant 108. Open from early morning, serving coffee from the Oslo-based Tim Wendelboe, and baking their own pastries with untraditional glazes like beef garum – a koji fermented beef stock. My personal favorite is the Danish pastry glazed with Swedish blueberries. On the savory side, try their golden egg with caviar, and fresh apple salad with blackcurrant wood oil. Note that the wine bar has some excellent bottles of natural wine on offer and can serve you a decent dinner too, should the restaurant next door be fully booked.
