Very cozy café with great and special interior decoration. Our coffee was good and the staff really friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend this place!

The first time I visited this place I was very disappointed in my almost-not-quite-warm drink. Thinking it was, perhaps, a one-off or the "norm" in the region, I made sure on my second visit to ask for my white hot chocolate "extra-extra varmt" but was...disappointed to discover that, not only was it not extra hot, but my barely half-filled mug wasn't even lukewarm enough to melt the marshmallows! Although the cake was nice enough (although nothing to rave about), we'll be having our fika elsewhere next time, and I certainly wouldn't recommend this place as somewhere to escape from the cold winter!More

To be honest I never expect much from franchise chains, especially not American ones pretending they know about Italian cuisine - in this case coffee. But aside of that you at least expect a place to be clean and be served two coffees in less...than 5 minutes. The outside seating was full of dishes, almost half of the chairs and tables full of guano from the birds. A poor lonely young girl did her best to run the place on her own, but it took close to 15 minutes to order the coffee at the stand. Unfair to treat a young employee that way. The espresso was bitter in the wrong way and the cappucino was a terrible soup of milk. But as long as things are large the American recipy makers probably think they suceededMore

Nothing fantastic but the service was good and the paninis are more than acceptable. My smoothie was yummy but a little thinner than I like.

Perfect location in hart of Karlskrona. Great choice of bajgels, salats and cakes. Comfortable seat, good chillout music makes it a perfect place for a fresh start in Sweden.

Just off the main square in Karlskrone, Expresso House has a good location. The intro is comfortable and inviting. Coffee and food are standard expresso house, and so good but not exceptional. Staff were friendly and helpful. Good stop if you like Expresso House.

This is a café not a restaurant, they do offer bagels and some pretty boring salads. The wi-fi is superBAD not like other espresso house's i've visited. The playlist consist of 5 songs that they put on replay which gets pretty annoying after 15 min.......filter coffee 28kr, lattes are more like 40-50kr, spacious and comfortable though. also good opening hours..More

You get what expect: the same coffee as anywhere. The same kind of staff. Not that much to remember afterwards

The Espresso house gave me a kind of a starbucks feeling, but more relaxing. Good Wifi, nice drinks and the bagels are really good! Also the ordering system is really smooth. Really relaxing place to have a coffee or a break. Definitely will go back.

You cant really see in the cafe from the outside but once you inside I was surprised at how large it is, yet it felt cosy and comfortable. The interior is quite masculine, with browns and caramel colours, but it made us feel like we...were in a very large library, perfect to come to with friends or on your own with a something nice to read. Lovely sofas to sit on and drink delicious coffee. Friendly staff and the cake is delicious too.More

We were staying next door at the First Hotel Statt and needed a morning spot to rev up for the day. The Espresso House serves up a variety of pastries and great coffee in a comfortable loungy seating area. There are sofas and big arm...chair to laze into and pleasant music. I was ready to explain to the barista how I wanted my café but it was quickly apparent that this was unnecessary. Expertly done and very good. Many people might know that Karlskrona was once considered as a possible candidate for Sweden's capital city so there is some history here.More
