I dined at Rost Mat & Kaffe with work colleagues and ordered their "Färskosttallrik" which best translates to a dish of fresh ingredients. Rost has a concept of preparing organic food from scratch, and is a very popular eating establishment in central Umeå.

Been here lots of times. It's a perfect place for a lighter lunch. I usually go for a sandwich. The atmosphere is welcoming and the staff is helpful. Not the best place for coffee.

Cozy lunch restaurant with a wide choice of vegetarian food. There is also fish on the menu if someone really don't wish to eat a completely vegetarian meal.

Very good food, my favourite is "färskosttallrik" A mix of different salads with bread, houmus, and cream cheese. It´s really addictive.
