As born and raised Americans it was with no knowledge of Barbro Margareta Svensson's life or career that two guests sat down for Fika at Lill Babs Caffar on Friday morning, the recently deceased native of Järvsö's music playing in stereo across several floors of a space that is as much a museum as it is a Restaurant.

Located at 61 Turistvaegen, a fairly busy road that primarily acts as the main route to and through Järvsö, guests entering Lill-Babs beginning at 10am daily will quickly be greeted in a retail store and Bakery, early arrivals likely to find at least a few items warm and service quite pleasant.

Offering Coffee and Tea in addition to Sandwiches, Salads and Pastries, sweets being the focus of an order en route to Åre, it was for a modest sum that five choices were plated and placed on a tray, both the Kardemumma Bulle and a similar item without Spices offering a golden surface overlying springy insides rich with Yeast and Butter.

Moving next to a local specialty known as Järvsölak, the texture and taste both nearly identical to a traditional Chocolate-dipped Macaroon, it was unfortunate that the Chokladboll was only rolled in Coconut but did not contain any, the texture thus largely like a Truffle and not compelling like the multi-layered Walnut Brownie that followed.

We stopped for a sandwich after hearing about this famous place. It was good - not great - but good. The bathrooms were small, and always had lines when we were there. The prices are above average.

Having decided to stop for lunch in Järvsö on our way to Stockholm from Vemdalen, we found this little gem. Tastefully filled with Lill-Babs memorabilia and subtle music, the cottage atmosphere feels like your dining at a friend's home. The menu was simple and food was clearly freshly made and delicious. Don't miss the caramel brownie! Icing on the cake was our energetic and charming hostess. The local trivia she shared showed genuine local pride. We'll be back!
