Top 5 Food lovers’ destinations in Stockholm


The Swedish capital is home to a versatile food culture. During the week most locals settle for takeaway coffees and smoothies, but on weekends many sit down for a slow brunch or an afternoon of coffee and cake with friends and family.


Café Seg 70 allows one to experience the cool side of Stockholm with its cosy and relaxed atmosphere. Jazz music plays on the background at the small cafe, and the walls are decorated with black and white newspaper clippings and photographs. Regulars stop in to have a cup of coffee with a toasted sandwich or a fresh waffle. The menu also stocks tasty salads, cakes and smoothies.
