“Historic French cafe on Kungsholmen. Nice lunches, brunches and breakfasts. Note the little food elevators inside the cafe - they still serve the building's residents on call! ”

“Without a doubt the BEST ice cream in town. What just looks like a hole in the wall is Stockholms best home-made-ice -cream-place. No seating but located just by the water on the Island of Kungsholmen, so you can grab your icecream and have a seat on one of the piers. Expect a line, but it is worth the while!”

Liquor Store
“Systembolaget is the only store that is allowed to sell beverages containing alcohol. The only exception is 3,5% beer which is found in any shop that sells food, normally. On the up side, Systembolaget is well sorted and has educated staff. Cheap wines are not cheap at systembolaget, but on the other hand, expensive bottles are not that expensive. This is an effect of sweden's alcohol tax system which basically taxes per bottle, instead of quantity. Generally, alcohol is expensive in Sweden, and this is the only place to get it.”

“Of course you have to have a cinnamon bun when in Sweden, but I am more partial to the cardamom bun of Fabrique - buttery, sweet, spicy in a cuddly way. ”

Ice Cream Shop

“This is culture - ice cream culture at its best. Try the tonka bean kind - and, top of the line, the mint/lime sorbet. It´s like licking on a frozen mochito. Give the owner regards from me. A must for ice cream lovers. I scream you scream we all scream for - Kungsholmens glassfabrik.”
