Paradise for cake lovers!

Nice day trip, a lovely old castle where you can eat as many pastries as you possible can get down. What else can you ask for?

A beautiful castle located just by the lake, amazing views and nature. The park is pretty and simple and invites to a picnic and maybe one should go for a swim in the sea afterwards. The old stables have small boutiques and sometimes there's an auction event or an artist holding an exhibition.

A somewhat legendary cafe which excels in cookies, pastries and cakes. Can be very crowded in weekends, especially in the summer so I recommend a visit during weekdays. Environment is pretty and offers a nice park for a walk after the largest cake selection in Northern Europe (?) has been enjoyed.

Visited taxinge slott for some lunch with family. The cafe was busy but the queue moving. The till seems to be in the wrong place, leading to confusion especially if ordering hot food and having to collect it after paying. That said sandwiches were tasty and filling and cakes were lovely. The grounds are something else, just beautiful. The shops... More

Being quite a fan of sweets, our friends drove us out to Taxinge Slott for what they described as the ultimate Swedish coffee break: fika. Taxinge Slott offers the most amazing selection of cakes, pastries, and Swedish specialties, with sandwiches too. We arrived at the perfect time, around 11am on Sunday, where there weren't too many people and there was... More

Yesterday my boyfriend and I took the train to the charming town of Mariefred and took the vintage steam boat across the water to Taxinge Slott for the famous cake and biscuit buffet. When we arrived at 3pm there was a queue out the door of the main building so our anticipation grew and our tummies were rumbling. The people... More

Good ambience at little manor used as a café with a sizeable range of pastries on offer. Service is really like a cafeteria not what you would expect from a European café in a classical architectural gem: queuing like at bording school but prices are rather exhorbitant. Pastries are ok ( and there's many of them) but this is not... More

My wife and I were in Sweden for a friend's wedding, which took place in the charming Taxinge Kyrka (church). The reception took place in the Italian Garden and what had been the barns of Taxinge Slott (castle). These are set in beautiful grounds on the banks of Lake Malaren, which are very popular on hot holiday afternoons. Definitely worth... More

This was a lovely place. Very beautiful. The cafe has a cake buffet which is just so nice. Really decent cakes and so many to choose from. The sugar rush was well worth the visit!

A lovely place to visit for a walk in gardens by the water - and the most wonderful cafe. We visited on a beautiful. sunny day and could have spent all day relaxing here. The cafe has a huge selection of cakes and biscuits and a wide variety of drinks. We ate outside in a relaxing cafe area. Staff were... More
