“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!”

“Award winning local bakery! Quiet place to start a day with a nice coffee or visit for a Swedish fika. Everything here is good and fresh. For classic Swedish fika - try any of their "bullar" (buns: cinnamon and cardamom are the classic ones) or smaller sweets like chokladbollar (=chocolate balls) or dammsugare (=vaccum cleaner!). Breakfast is served. Lunches are very light. ”
