“Quaint place that provides value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2012

Had lunch here while visiting the town. Tasty sandwiches with nice tea. The cakes look (and taste) lovely! Yes it looks as though it could do with decorating but for us that was part of the charm. Comfy seats in an old fashioned setting, hot tea and time to chat - what more could anyone want?

“One of the best in Uppsala!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

I don't understand why people have given Ofvandahls such a low rating. It's a great little cafe, and perhaps one of the most famous in Uppsala. Perfect for relaxing with friends or as a hangout for studying. The pastries are delicious and the sandwiches are excellent as well! Well worth a visit!

“Old school coffee, cake, and conversation place”

Awesome old place for relaxing cup. Maybe renovated 100 year ago?? Worth a stop and more.

i guess it's how it should be, but too "dusty" for my taste, even if it's a historically interesting place. can't say the menu is incredible either.
