Feels like you are visiting your Swedish grandma! The local is gorgeous and they have nice food - the price is rather high tho. Overall, it's a unique place and I love it!

The prices are like in City Central in Stockholm = way to high. Some cakes are good some are less good. Nothing special, it's the place, near sea that's nice. Self Service all the way.
