We stopped by here for a bit of "fika" (coffee & cake) as they call it in Sweden. To my surprise they had a very large selection of gluten free cakes and keep them on a different side of the counter as to not mix...More

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.

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

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)
