The best coffee spots in Stockholm

Fika, as any Swede would tell you, is much more than just coffee and cakes – it’s a lifestyle. Nowhere is this more evident than in the capital.

Drop Coffee

Here’s a place that takes its coffee seriously and that’s how you finish in the top three in the World Roasting Championships, as co-owner Joanna Alm does regularly. Step inside their coffee lab and prepare to be swept off your feet, whether you choose a filter coffee or an espresso.

Sosta

Just when you’ve wandered down Sergels Torg on Sveavägen ready for a cup of coffee, there’s Sosta, a place with a strong Italian flavor – and not only in the drink. Get your espresso, stand by the bar and lap it up, then hit the street again. Bring cash.

Ulriksdals Slottcafé

On north side of town, you’ll find Ulriksdal’s Palace, and its wonderful garden and Orangery. And the café, which overlooks the garden. Good sandwiches and fine coffee (or maybe a glass of wine) in a harmonious environment. Worth a bike ride out there.

Lundbergs Konditori

Step outside the tram and inside a 1940s coffee shop, run by two award-winning master pastry chefs, Per Olsson and Mattias Wallmark. They pour their hearts into their baking, and your coffee, which is sourced from a family-owned plantation in Colombia. Olsson and Wallmark are now the fifth owners of the classic place that first opened its doors in 1946.

Wienercaféet

In the heart of the heart of the city, a stone’s throw from Stureplan, along exclusive Biblio­teksgatan, you’ll find this high-end café, inspired, as the name implies, by continental Europe. Great for breakfast, brunch, lunch and afternoon tea.

Mellqvist Kaffebar

Don’t be startled by the line outside the place, it’s just Stockholm commuters grabbing their breakfast from the cart. Step inside and lean back. Mellqvist’s is not a big place, but it’s bigger than it looks. People watchers will want a table outside.

Saturnus

“Kan jag få den här i en påse? [Can I have this in a bag?]” is a good phrase to use if you’re planning to eat a Saturnus cinnamon bun on your own. They’re big, as are their lattes. According to rumors, you may bump into royalty at this downtown French-styled café.

Barista Fairtrade Coffee at Victoria

What makes the Götgatan coffee shop special, among the 15 in Scandinavia’s first ethical coffee shop chain, is its location, in the lobby of a movie theater. Time it right and you can spend a nice afternoon with fairtrade coffee and a great sandwich while taking in a movie.
