Old-fashioned cafe with really cozy interior - perfect for a rainy day. Feels a bit like a Viennese coffee shop. Nice change from the characterless chains and hipstery places, even if some seem to think it needs a tidying up.

I have been to this place a handful of times now and every time I am charged a different price for the same items. Today I was charged twice the price I was charged last time, and the guy played dumb when I complained. Go...More

We visited Uppsala and had coffees and cakes at Ofvandahls Hovkonditori. This place is an Uppsala must! The coffee is good, the cakes great and the atmosphere unique. You can really feel the history. Popular. Lots of young people, students. Don't miss this place.

The apple cake was good but the furniture very dated. Very reasonably priced and oldest in Uppsala. The service was ok but the hospitality better.

Ofvandahls is one of the older cafés in Uppsala. It has long been a favourite place for students to visit as it is on what is considered the "University side" of the river. Recently, however, the quality of the food has taken a downturn and...More

We used to visit this cafe quite frequently. It's a cosy and pretty cafe with a wide spread of delicious desserts. There are ornate and rich coloured sofas where one can sit and enjoy long chats. Worth a visit for sure :)
