Well you can get a good sweet treat just about anywhere in Stockholm, but here you can get an outstanding sweet, an excellent coffee, and ambience all rolled into one.

The staff are expected to work under poor conditions for reduced pay and the owner is extremely harsh on the staff. If they don't perform in a Hitler-pleasing fashion they get fired or harassed, regardless of how effective or hard-working they are. I would recommend not ever going to this cafe as paying the money-hungry owner is only feeding an... More

You must visit this bakery- They serve lots of baked goods and drinks but you MUST get a slice of Swedish princess cake. That paired with a café latte, and find a seat tucked away in one of the many shabby chic, antique decorated rooms. It is like a house, with hidden rooms and long hallways- explore and find a...

Loved coming here! Ordered a kanebuller - think it's the best to be had in the city - and then having the refillable coffee. Loved sitting here and just enjoying.

I have eaten breakfast at Vete-Katten a couple of times, not cheap but nice. During a period they had reduced capacity du to a renovation but now they are back again. The different number of sandwiches are large and you could have your particular favorite or you could opt for a full breakfast with yoghurt, juice etc.

A very nice traditional café if you want to experience the old Swedish fika culture. It feels like coming home to your grandma's place and there are always lots of older guests. Try their traditional semla!

A good restaurant to try Swedish cakes, in a no nonsense way. I love the Princess cake. The Budapest cake is pretty good as well. However for a Swedish cafe, the coffee leaves much to be desired for. The service is pleasant enough, and it had a charming outdoor seating area.

This was a few doors down from our hotel, so it became a go-to in order to try various Swedish pastries & cakes. The quality is excellent, and the prices are about what you'd expect at any cafe in Stockholm. The lingonberry layer cake was especially good, as were the cinnamon rolls! The location is also good if you are... More

This beautiful-beyond-words cafe is frozen in time. Great location (walking distance from central station), old world furniture, cat paintings and sculptures, friendly staff.. they have it all. Room after room prepped for traditional tea service or fika. It is as if someone from the 1920's will walk right in. There is also an outdoor sitting area with white picket fences... More

When in Sweden, one of the most important things to do is to take a (or several) fika. There are several different definitions of fika, but mostly it's a cup of coffee, tea or a soda AND something to chew to go with the drink. The most original fika is a cinnamon roll and a choclate ball, and it's fine... More
