We stopped here on a cool May day for a hot drink. It was up to the bar for service. We ordered a cappuccino and hot chocolate. small servings but very tasty. Comfortable setting amoung sofa's and books/magazines. Art on the wall. Very clean washrooms. A bit on the pricey side, but location is excellent in the heart of the... More

We visited here during our stay in Sweden for a late lunch. Quite intimate but with a nice outdoor area for meals. Choice is a bit limited but then it is only a small cafe. Very reasonably priced and friendly staff. We paid around £40 for four adults and one child including drinks. So good we returned the next day... More

I know this café from the previous owner and it has unfortunately become worse. I love the concept of the language groups and the location is nice. But there are serious hygienic issues with the guys owning the place now. They always use plastic gloves, but the problem is that they NEVER change them, so they bring the garbage out,... More

Having spent the day touring Gothenburg it was time for a rest and a drink. This cafe was busy and very popular. We had a tea and a hot chocolate. They were reasonably priced compared to others we had already purchased elsewhere. We did find seats (just!) and perched to watch the world go by. The cakes in the display... More

This small restaurant is perfectly located in the center of Gothenburg by the canals. The lunch is very good and priceworthy. The idea with a language café is interesting and trendy. The food is good and the restaurant is clean and nice. The staff is very friendly.

I came along this place out of sheer chance and found my place on Earth. Located conveniently on esperantoplatsen, this is the restaurant to go to if you're as much into languages as I am. I found the right people to talk to who helped me out with my many language inquiries and I got to quench some other enthusiasts'... More

Nice, relaxed atmosphere among second hand books. Lots of tables outside too, for sunny days. Delicious lunch meals. Restroom and wifi have potential for improvement.

Perfect for a light lunch or a fika. A nice selection of books to pass your time. The service was a bit slow, although not crowded, and the coffee could be a bit better, but overall a pleasant experience.

The staff was having an argument with each other when we ordered, then they continued with one of the customers. Not very professional. Food is good and cosy environment

My main goal with visiting Språkcafeet was to join one of their language evenings. Since I couldn't find my language group upon arrival, I asked the bartender for help. He proved very unhelpful and acted as though he didn't even know what the language evenings were all about (note that this is the main thing the cafe is known for).... More
