“Sweedish flare. Great croissants.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

This place was a nice, quiet find during the weekend. Wall Street was dead before Memorial Day, so this place was empty as well. The coffee was excellent and croissants were fresh and flaky. Great service. Cool vibe inside.

“Great Swedish coffee place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

They serve you espresso well made. You can tell the beans are selected and roasted to make excellent espresso. I am very pleased. Serving also some traditional Swedish sweets like chokladbollar (chocolate balls). Princesstårta (princess cake) and of c kladdkaka (brownie).

What's missing to make a great cafe is lack of seating. But I understand NY rents are ridiculous and most people do take away here.

They also offer a lot of traditional Swedish products like lingonberry jam and cloudberry.

“Nice stop for coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

Stylish place with tasty food. My latte was not stellar, milk was slightly overheated/burned, but good coffee beans and nice open space to sit down...
