I try to come here every time I´m in Stockholm, it´s like coming to grandma´s place. Great swedish bullar and the best fastlagsbulle in town.

I found it by accident. One has to pass through an arcade to find this shop. It has two entrances, one from the main road and the other from Gamla Brogatan, the parallel road, which leads to the garden. It has a very nice atmosphere, the pastries were delicious and the staf very friendly. The major disadvantage is that they... More

This is the typical place that comes to my mind when I am asked for a retro café. This is vintage-looking and stylish, very swedish also. The location is great and it is really cheap given quality and location. Workers are always helpful and smiley even though the place is normally crowded. And yes, food quality is very impressive, from... More

My cousin Birgitta and I celebrated our 60th Birthdays at this eclectic and wonderful cafe. I have never visited a place quite like this. It was comforting, cozy...and even the coffee cups were arranged artistically. We had sandwiches for lunch, which were innovative and overflowing with healthful ingredients. The pastries we enjoyed for dessert -- a strawberry tart and an... More

Nice wheat-free options, central location. Downside, very busy and queues were long on a Saturday. Friendly staff who were helpful despite our lack of Swedish! Clientele were mainly families with small children. Sadly some rather rude older ladies who queue-jumped and were aggressive dampened the experience somewhat.

I read about this place in a Stockholm guide so when I realised it was only a few metres from the hotel I was staying in, I thought I would pay a visit. It was a Sunday afternoon so was busy, so I had to wander round to find a seat. It was good to see some of the small... More

I worked behind the corner at Gamla Brogatan 1978. This Cafe Vete Katten was my "second home". I went there every day. They had that time only the old part of the cafe with old style furniture. I really have so good memories and I can even remember the smell at the door step when I now go in to... More
