Very nice place in old city, perfect for lunch, great choice of salads, sandwiches and pastries! Good coffee and helpful staff! We eat vegetable pizza and it was amazing!

Coffee was decent. But the mood and the feel of the place was cozy. It was a chilly night so a warm light of the coffee invited us in.

I got a slice of feta/spinach quiche that came with a side salad with dressing(unknowingly) & a cup of americano coffee for 17usd total(including tax & no tip here)-order at counter & take inside or your tray to the lovely outdoor seating. There is a...pitcher of cold water with glasses to help yourself & a nice bathroom👍More

Yes it does and it had seats and staff. We needed all three so it was pretty handy in the old town. It was clean and the staff were helpful. We had two pies and drinks for kr206 which seemed reasonable for where it was...and much much better than Rome or Venice or Starbucks. My blueberry pie was really good. If you need a coffee and pie, toilet it's a great place if you want a postcard it's notMore

We came in here because all other cafes were full this day but we regret it. Around 500 SEK for lunch for 3 people! Two slices of pie, a slice of pizza, hot cocoa, coffee and a smoothie. Tasteless and boring food and not even...the coffee was good. The owners should be ashamed of themselves. Avoid!More

We ate the piece of pizza with salad. Salad was fresh and the slice was well... it was ordinary but voluminous. Everything we needed to take our hunger away. I recommend this place for the uncomplicated atmosphere and simple yet delicious food.

Located in the heart of Gamla Stan, this is an authentic cafe used by many working locally. Good coffee and an amazing offering of cakes and tarts. An excellent place for a coffee stop whilst exploring the Old Town. A regular stop-off on my visits...to Stockholm.More

Small café in Gamla Stan. Nothing very special, but very warm, with a great variety of tee choices. Cakes looked yummy.... I got my tee to go, but the sits were very comfortable. Self- service.

Pizza slices had really hard base and also breads were untasteful. And price is quite high, because of this area. You can find better places nearby.

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)
