Nobel Peace Center, Pascal Cafe de la paix

This is totally the best thing about Oslo. Pascal, a french patisserie, who has several great cafes around the city- got the opportunity to serve their cakes at the Nobel Peace center. Look at this place! The interior is a collaboration between the artist Chris Ofili and the architect David Adjaye.

The bright red bookstore in the center is also a treat, with great merchandise, like these shwe shwe poppies .drawn by children in Soweto, and sown by they're mothers and grandmothers as part of raising money for the African Children`s Feeding Scheme.The dolls are named after their creator and they come with a picture of that child.cute and helpful!
