The lunch is a no-frills, basic lunch, and aptly, decently priced. The value added, however, is in the surrounding, in a hidden heart of the Old Town. This "triangular square" is shaded by a large tree and breathing of Stockholm medieval history.

Great place to take a sightseeing break and have a snack. Nice staff and great location by an actual chestnut tree. Difficult with food allergies.

Great food for a good price. I had a nice salad with lots of vegetables and very good bread. The staff is very friendly and speaks English very well. The atmosphere and the view are great. Definitely recommend this place.

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
