Fresh, good selection of food, friendly staff, quirky and sweet locale. We had soup of the day, wich was a wonderful mushroom soup, perfecty served steaming hot out of the kitchen, with home made croutons and a very fresh salad on the side. As far as I can judge, there's no reason to go anywhere else in Alvesta! Sadly, they don't do dinner. Let's hope they will in the future.

This was a drop in for lunch in this small town before a train trip. Absolutely worth it. Very good food and very nice service. Worth every penny. Japanese roots.

Cafe St. Clair is a hidden gem. It is by far the best cafe in Alvesta, Sweden and, indeed in all of Smaland. The daily lunch is a great bargain. Emmanuel, the Swedish chef, is outstanding and varies the menu every week. His Japanese wife Masumi is front of house and a charming and conscientious hostess. The pinnacle of Cafe St. Clair is "Sushi Friday" when Masumi makes by hand fresh sushi. It is as good as in Tokyo. The Sushi Friday is usually the last Friday of the month - but it is essential to check ahead as there are some months when there is no Sushi Friday. Reservations are essential as most days from noon until 1:30pm all the seats are full. I cannot recommend Cafe St. Clair too highly. Masumi & Emanuel are wonderful people and the food is beyond compare. My wife and I eat there at least once a week for lunch and sometimes more often.

I haven't expected I could enjoy miso soup and Japanese fusion food in Alvesta. It was a nice surprise.
アルベスタで味噌汁と日本の味を楽しめるとは思いませんでした。とても嬉しい驚きでした。真澄さんとご主人もとても気さくで暖かく迎えてくれました。またお邪魔したいです。
