We recognized the place from a recommendation in our travel guide so we went in. The coffee was okay and the service wasn’t very friendly but if you want a nice lunch it’s still worth a visit. The grilled sandwiches are huge and good and...More

Made a special detour to visit this place in search for a good speciality coffee place. Well, the coffee is there, it’s made with Chemex, but it’s far from tastes that you get from a good speciality brew. Left disappointed.

We sought out Kate Esaias from a specialty coffee site. Overall we enjoyed the experience but the coffee is hardly worth the detour. Having said that it’s a nice people watching spot on the terrace.

It didn't start auspiciously when the surly barista told us they don't serve single shots of coffee - only doubles. Seriously, what's up with that? It also didn't help that the service was indifferent at best: do customers have to pay to get a smile,...More

Cafe has a breakfast/brunch menu where it is possible to choose from 4 options based on how hungry you are. The place was perfect for us, we had to check out from hotel early, so each of us ate different breakfast here! Something for everybody!...More

Stockholm has a number of great coffee shops but this one remains a favourite when in the city. It's in a great location and has that immediately welcoming feeling that takes you away from the bustle outside. The coffee is consistently good from the da...More

Popped in for a coffee. Latte was good and strong. Food looked to be nothing special so we just took the coffee. Interior was modern and welcoming.
