This is a large coffee and restaurant that is packed with tourists visiting Drottningholm Palace and its gardens. It offers you a selection of fine Swedish cuisine as well as international savouries. The Bulle and the cheese cakes are a must, so are the sandwiches and salads. The prices are on the high end, but worth it.

We tried the place while visiting Drottningholm for a quick lunch and the experience was absolutely horrible. Waitresses were rude and the service, being a chaotic self service, is under the sufficient. Food (two simple sandwiches) was not good and overpriced for its poor quality. Avoid it if you can.

This Cafe had very nice food. There was very nice waiters and a nice atmosphere in the Cafe. Don't buy bottled water from the counter. There is free water that we noticed after.

After a long way we walked through, better to find a place to eat something and take a rest. For sure, stay at Drottingholms Slottscafe. When I entered this place, I think it is only a fast food shop with about 30 seats. We ordered a minute steak and gratinerad bertgtunga. The minute steak is wonderful. It is the best... More

We (like many others) took a Swedish fika (coffee and cake) after visiting the palace and the park. The prices were really ok for the Stockholm area. The quality of the coffee and the carrot cake was good, too. Staff was friendly. We had been afraid that it was worse as it is the main café spot at Drottningholm, but... More

This is probably the only eatery in the neighbourhood of Drottingholms Palace, that explains the crowd. It is a partial self service , leading to an increased waiting time to obtain the service. Prices are slightly on the higher side for the ambience provided. It is better to go with food when you are visiting the Palace to avoid this... More

We had lunch at the Drottningholm Slottscafe, next door to the Drottningholm Palace and were happy to discover that despite the "Café2 name they serve real lunches. Orders ar taken at the counter but the food is made to order and served at the table. And don't worry about leaving hungry, this place serves up good size servings that satisfy... More

This restaurant, in particular the hot a la carte dishes, were excellent and moderately priced even though it is located right next to the palace and the boat dock. We had the warm smoked salmon and the tenderloin steak. The portions were quite large, and the dishes were really good.

Food is very good but service is painfully slow. If you have a guided tour of the palace scheduled, you need to do that first before you eat unless you have a lot of time before the tour.
