This is a story about the oldest kiosk in Oslo. Oslo grows and changes fast but this little one is still there despite the weather, city razzle-dazzle... or even pandemic that hits the planet. It used to be part of a gas station, and when they built a new building instead, this tiny location remained ๐Ÿคฉ

The first time Erlend was only 4 years old when he first came here. His father knew the old owner Syver (hence the name), so he has many warm memories of the place. His father had bought the shop in 1979 and he himself had been working there since the age of 12 and took it over when the time came.


Erlend remembers all his customers, one by one he serves them with a big smile and a friendly chat. This is his recipe for success and it makes people happy! ๐ŸŒญ

Toppingsโ€ฆguess they have them all. Different kinds of mustard, ketchup, onions and even wild mushrooms picked in the woods.

What can we say? The place is a legend.



โœจWe had to ask Erlend a bit of a personal question - how do you find the strength to stick with what you do and still love it after so many years? His answer was simple โœจ
