When we took our waterfront walk some weeks back, we discovered a great little cafe at which to stop and fika*.
It is called Två Systrar & En Kock – Two Sisters & a Chef – and is on Kronobergsgatan, one of the streets on Kungsholmen that run down towards the water. It is not so big inside (so pushchairs should be left outside) but they have made up for that with little touches like a box of toys for little ones to play with while you enjoy your fika.
The cafe is definitely mysig (another great Swedish word – cosy is the best translation) with candles and flowers on each table and comfortable cushions to relax back into.
The food was delicious, the coffee was great and I loved that they had thought about how to keep the little ones entertained. Highly recommended if you find yourself in the neighbourhood!

* fika is a great Swedish word for a coffee break accompanied with something sweet – a little cake or bun. The word is twofold and can be used as the noun (“Let’s stop and have fika”) and as a verb (“Let’s stop and fika”). I love both the word and what it represents.
