One of my best memories in Stockholm was had a lovely lunch there. Recommend to foreign visitors if you want to have some local food in good quality with pleasant atmosphere. Do go this place!

Very rich Saturday brunch with a lot af Swedish tastes. Fish, beans and salads all from the tradition. Kind service and very welcoming ambience (the inner room room better than the main one). Fair price.

We had a group meal here with a Rick Steves' tour.  The neighborhood is upbeat and, from what we understand, was a setting in Steig Larrsen's "The Millenium series". Service was attentive and we had herring appetizers (some liked them and some did not) and...More

Good food, great service and a wonderful atmosphere. This restaurant features old fashioned fittings and fixtures, some quirky sculptures and reeks of authenticity.

the birthplace of Swedish hipsterism and became
Sweden’s main hub for new fashion labels, independent

Despite their extreme transformation, SoFo (South of

to their residential charm and quietness and became
