“Try the lentils”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Indeed, it's not the best-looking place, but they serve some very good, home-made, food. Their lentil soup is excellent and not to be missed. Service is slow, but it's worth trying it.

“Horrible but wonderful!”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

This place is usually crowded, too warm and slow service - since it takes some time to complete the orders at the desk. I should hate it. But the staff is really nice, there is plenty of tasty things to eat both sweet and other and while the furniture is worn down and often quite uncomfortable it still is cosy. I find myself coming back here, hating and liking it. Outdoor seating during summer, hidden away on top of the roof.

“The best place in Uppsala to have a nice 'fika'”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

Very nice cakes, cosy old decor... Definitely one of the best places in Uppsala to 'have a fika'! Try the carrot cake, it's my favourite. The hot chocolat is also amazing.... Not so cheap though, but worth the price!

Reviewed September 10, 2009

The cakes are great. The coffee is okay. But the main reason why I come here is because of the cosy atmosphere, especially in the evenings when it is a bit more quiet. Beautiful old furniture in an beautiful old building overlooking Stora Torget. A great place to meet up with friends over fika.

Noisy. Dirty. Ugly. Highschool kids. Hate it.
Apparently they used to have good tea once, but I don't drink tea. Frankly, I consider it a waste of water and energy. How the british once ruled the known universe is beyond me.
