Let me tell that there is more to Swedish food than the meatballs from Ikea. But don’t get me wrong. I love eating them whenever I visit Ikea and it’s the right time for a meal. Since this was my second trip to Stockholm, I know of knew what to expect. And Swedish food is really good. Also, they love to meet for a drink with friends and family. A habit I thoroughly approve of. So here are my tips and where you should stop in Stockholm. Yours, Pollybert
Stureplan 1: This restaurant has a large outdoor dining area, but also a section just for drinks. We stopped there twice, before and after we went to Ekstedt. This place has a cool vibe, a big crowd, and the wine was cold. It’s also a good place for people watching. Inside the bar and outside.
Rosendals Trädgård: This idyllic greenhouse/garden center on Djurgården just beckons you to sit down for a snack. The Café has self service and you can grab a coffee and wander around the garden with it. Or take a seat outside the greenhouses and relax while trying some of there available snacks.
Nytorget 6: One morning we canceled the hotel breakfast and tried something local instead. The restaurant has a nice list of breakfast dishes. It looks rather like an evening place though, with the long bar and the overall vibe. Breakfast was wonderful though.
Café & Bageri Pascal: Even if you are not hungry anymore after a breakfast at Nytorget 6, try to pas by here since it is only around the corner. We stopped for a coffee and then of course got a pastry. Because how can you withstand such deliciousness?
Airport Skavasta: Because you can’t leave Stockholm without eating the aforementioned meatballs, I got them at the airport restaurant. Maybe they were not the best version of this traditional dish, but they were definitely edible.
