“Typical Swedish cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

The cafe is lovely situated next to the river and there is enough space for everyone to be seated. They have a wide selection of sandwiches, cakes and homemade ice cream. The staff is very friendly - especially with kids and families. A nice thing they offer is a kind of "tapas bar" with small pieces of cakes which one can try without having to buy a whole piece.

“You will enjoy it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Sadly they were closed after a fire - or was it water damage or both? - for an awful long period of time, but now Guntherska is open again and an Uppsala delight which you shouldn’t miss and which we locals cannot be without.

The Swedish word konditori stems from German Konditorei and means pastry shop. And that is what Guntherska Hovkonditori is and excels about: A classic Vienna style pastry shop.

Believe me: There are a lot of temptations you simply MUST try. If you don’t speak Swedish you will leave the shop with the knowledge of what “mycket goda hemmagjorda bakelser” means: beautiful tasty homemade cakes.

Fortunately Guntherska sits on the Uppsala River, and you may want to go for a healthy stroll up and down both riverbanks after your visit. Enjoy!

“Perfect old-school bakery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

Visited the bakery this spring and I can say that this must be one of the best bakeries in Sweden (together with Vete-katten in Stockholm and Ahlströms in Gothenburg). This is baking at its best, innovate yet traditional. Recommended! It is situated beautifully just aside the Uppsala River. Very beautiful.

“Best bulle in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012 via mobile

We stumbled across the café while strolling through the City.
Great setting in a historic building. We tried all types of "Bulle': kardamumme bulle, Vanilla- blueberry and chocolate. All highly recommended and probably the best we've had so far in Sweden. My personal favourite was the Kardamumma Bulle - definitely World class.

We also took home a loaf of white bread, which was pretty good, too.
