Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Stockholm

le Café
le Café offers great coffee and a tempting food menu from its chic space near Stockholm’s waterfront area and the Central Station.
Cafe Albert
Busy, lively and located on Birger Jarlsgatan, so it's handy for a post-shopping lunch or a pre-night out rendezvous with friends.
Rosendals Trädgård
This famed establishment on Djurgården serves homemade food in remarkably bucolic surroundings. You can pick your own flowers, picnic in the orchard, browse the greenhouses, and then have a delicious meal.
Mellqvist Café
Mellqvist has an excellent array of tasty Italian olives, artichokes, salamis, and some of the best coffee in Stockholm. If you live around Norrmalm it's easy to see how this place would easily become a staple for day to day snacking...
Martins Gröna
Although small and humble in design and concept Martins Gröna continues to impress and draw you back for another helping of their delicious hearty fare...
Café Rival
The Swedish are renowned for their pastries and the Rival has got it down to a tea...a comfortable, laid back feel, with delicious food and cakes, the Rival will easily become a favourite hang out...
Cafe 60
Friendly locals cafe with an astounding array of baked goods makes for a peaceful retreat.
Saluhall
Dotted with places offering free tasters of cheese and wine, Saluhall is home to some of the most delicious produce in the city ‰ÛÒ it's an enormous vault of gastronomic indulgence.
7 Knop
Söder is full of small cafes with character, plus any number of soulless ones. 7 Knopp is perenially popular and handily located near to Nytorget, which is surrounded by some of the best places to find affordable good food in Södermalm.
Vetekatten
It's good to be reminded sometimes that not all Stockholm cafes are minimalist places with plain wooden tables and exactly the same sandwiches. This is the closest thing Stockholm has to a grand cafe. It's not, in truth, that grand, but it is charmin
Sturekatten
Expect traditional cakes, antique furnishings, and several steep staircases. Sturekatten is refreshingly old-fashioned, in an area that is obsessed with the latest style.
Muffin Bakery
The Muffin Bakery is Stockholm's equivalent to Manhattan's Magnolia Bakery and it has attracted a similar crowd of keen muffin addictees.
Lasse I Parken
There's a certain fairytale quality to this place, thanks to its outdoor seating and quaint little old building in which you can buy traditional Swedish cakes. In short, it's cute, which will either appeal to you or not.
Gooh!
Gooh! serves good food fast. The dishes were created by the chef at Operakällaren one of the finest restaurants in town but prices are amazingly low and most dishes are incredibly good. Eat in or take away.
Bonan
It's not going to win any points in the style awards, but Bonan does serve good food and is ideally located for a quick break on your way through this part of the city.
