This place is a hidden gem where the service and atmosphere is at its best! The homexooking style is genuine and their menues are at a much lower rate than the touriststraps around.

Relatively small, but nice place to stop for a break at the center of the old town. We had a lentil soup and a piece if cake, !nd they both were wonderful! Friendly staff. Calming scenery.

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
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
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)
