It's a lovely building and for that reason alone is worth a visit. The antiques sellers have fairly limited opening hours (12-5).

The is a repurposed grand old bank building, which lends Interesting atmosphere to the collection of antique sellers that ring the soaring atrium. The shops cover a range -- jewelry, watches, homewares from another era, a small collection of vintage high-end designers, folk toys and knickknacks. I was mostly browsing so was not that interested in buying, but there was a lot of finely chosen stuff. Admittedly, I was after some lunch and heard that this arcade had a café. It's quite good with salads, open-faced sandwiches (including the famous shrimp pile), coffee and pastries. My composed salad with roasted chicken and veges was tasty, and the coffee was excellent (as it seems to be everywhere in Sweden.) IT's the kind of café where you go through a cafeteria line and then find a table. IF at a busy time, I recommend parking a dining companion to hold a table for you, or ask a nice nearby table to watch your stuff (shopping bags?) for you. It seems that some will leave their bags unattended, but I'm not trusting enough to do that. I have a few small gripes. First, what looks like a short line goes frustratingly slow, and I can't figure out why -- this is grab-from-the-case kind of food. I felt badly that the table next to me offered to watch my bags while I was in line, but they were clearly ready to go by the time (too long!) I finally got my order and got back to the table. (My apologies to those ladies again -- who knew?) The other is, of course, excusable -- there was no English menu. I try not to be so English-centered, but it seemed that every other restaurant I went to during 2 weeks in Sweden had an English menu, it would have been very appreciated to have even a few key items shown in English, and a customer service I would have appreciated. The menu isn't that big, and it was difficult to be sure about some items in the display case.

Accidentally found myself in Antikhallarna and immediately blended into the crowd of antiques sellers and serious-looking dealers - quite the experience! Fairly reasonable price too, and worth the time if you want a taste of the real Sweden. This may not be a really touristy place to visit, but the authenticity and heritage makes this place a real gem.

One of the salespeople there was obviously not a fan of norwegians. Pretty rude I would say. I guess you could chalk it up to attempted humor, but I surely didn't like the guy.

Just across the River from the Swedish East Indian Company Museum and just one block away from the main Church is this very recently renovated, antique market. Without a doubt more internationally antique oriented merchandise and dealers than any place else on Sweden's West Coast. A very important call for international antique dealers. A very important watch dealer, you will also find Danish porcelain, lots of silver and silver plate, stamps, glass, coins, and other treasures. Should you be shopping for souvenirs, secondhand items, and gifts. It might be interesting to investigate the Haga area , and other shops around Jarntorget. Same warnings apply. Gothia Antiques has always been a fun stop. Swedish dealers are extremely correct and will show you all the faults the item might have. You will never be misled, but you have to know what the piece is worth to you. Remember, you are now in Sweden. The Swedish dealer is not interested in talking about your antiques, which you inherited, and things that you found in garage sales. You may be very lucky and be able to make "contact"with one of the colleagues. If that happens, you will have earned a very important partner who will locate and put aside things for you. The main change after the renovation was the integration of the coffee shop. Many people come in just for a cup of coffee, to take a pause sitting in the antique furniture, and watching both the tourist and professionals operate.
