Cinnamon, cardamom and vanilla fill the small shop every morning ..Quality produced "fikabröd and a cup of good coffee and everything becomes so much easier.When summer arrives, you'll find a small al fresco area, but this time of year you get to stay indoors.

Looks great, super atmosphere, top drinks. Variety of seating from bar, sofas and couples or small group options. Great for a smart drink before going out.

This rather quiet neighborhood revolves around a
postcard-like park with a dramatic fountain in its
center and is definitely one of Stockholm’s showcase
neighborhoods. Mariatorget, a central residential
area, is the best Stockholm has to offer when it comes
to juxtaposing architectural masterpieces with
sophisticated art galleries, coffee shops and bars.
Stockholmers love to spend their weekends in the park
