Coffeehouse and coffee shop are related terms for an establishment which primarily serves prepared coffee and other hot beverages. Café in continental Europe refers to a traditional type of coffeehouse, but elsewhere "cafe" may refer to a tea room, small and cheap restaurant (colloquially a "caff"), transport cafe, or other casual eating and drinking place. One exquisite looking Café is Café Renzo.

Cafe Renzo is attached to the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art at Tjuvholmen in Oslo. The building was designed by the legendary architect Renzo Piano, who also designed the café’s inventory.
