Swede Hollow has gone from your favorite place to get a good coffee and scone to a real destination restaurant, with the lovely new upstairs addition. Not only is the food still great--especially breakfast--but the beautiful use of authentic mill work and flooring in the...More

My husband and I stumbled across this great little place this morning. A bacon pecan caramel roll, hash browns with cheese and amble meat and a great veggie filled quiche made the stop worth the while. The cubana (cappuccino with brown sugar) was amazing. Small...More

The Swede Hollow Cafe has delicious breakfast specials, which include unique homemade baked goods and quiches. We enjoyed the chocolate pumpkin coffee cake and the quiche with black beans for breakfast. The food always has interesting ingredients, yet at the same time, is warm and...More

I always hesitate to share this place, but then I get so excited about the cinnamon roll bread pudding and the daily quiche special that I end up gushing about it for a solid five minutes. I've never had anything but the special, but I...More
