I love this place for several reasons. First, the location is great. Don't forget to climb up the tower and enjoy the view. After the walk in the charming Mälarhöjden you may allow yourself to eat an additional waffle or a piece of cake. Second, it is full of history, this you just need to feel, especially if you are interested in the Swedish culture. And third, the service is good and personal. The last time we visited Lyran, we had to wait for a waffle for too long (the place was full) - and got two waffles instead of one as a compliment, without asking or showing any kind of displeasure. One last reason: if you are fond of photography and happen to be in the south of Stockholm, come to Mälarhöjden in winter, when it is all white, and walk around the Lyran, it can give you quite a portion of inspiration.
