“Oldest house in Göteborg”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

The Kronhus and the Kronhusbodarna are supposed to be the oldest houses in Göteborg.
Unfortunately, you cannot visit everything there because some musicians live in it.

“Come for a quick visit, but dine elsewhere...”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

I suppose it is a bit of a tourist trap, but I always enjoy taking visitors to see the old buildings & cobblestone courtyard. The glass blowers and the old-fashioned candy shop are sure to please! Don't make the mistake of staying here for a bite to eat, however. I was embarrassed by the rude treatment I & my friend received at the cafe recently, and would hate to have out-of-town visitors get their first impression of Swedish culture from a similar experience. The man behind the counter was unsmiling, curt, and made me feel about as welcome as a skunk at a garden party! Bizarre treatment at such a quaint, old-fashioned location... what about "Old World" hospitality??

Side note: Strollers/prams are not a great fit for this site. The cobblestones are absolutely wicked when it comes to pushing a stroller, and the cafe strictly forbids the presence of strollers inside.

“History of Sweden.”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Those old buildings downtown Gothenburg once was the birthplace of the Swedish Parliament in 1621. The Kingdom of Sweden was for a short time run from here - which in that particular time was the heart of Nya Lödöse.

“Lovely lunch in the sun”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

Having lunch at the cafe, sat outside in the sun, is unbeatable. The lasagne here is consistently decent, the sandwiches good, the coffee strong. Not sure I would bother coming for lunch if I was going to sit inside, but love the outdoor seating.

“Sad place smack downtown”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

I don't know why this place isn't used more. It's a total tourist trap. The Crown House and the surrounding buildings are beautiful and the only remaining buildings in the old part of town (the rest was torn in the sixties), and it hosts some interesting Swedish history (used to be the seat of the Swedish parliament), but now it's just a sad place with a few handicraft stores, a run down café and the occasional concert. All of this literally 200 meters from the busiest bus stop in the city...
