Älskade Traditioner, one of my favorites on Södermalm

Posted in Stockholm E by
Älskade Traditioner Stockholm

This website Take me to Sweden ensures that I am always looking for new addresses in Stockholm, and by extension throughout the rest Sweden, and I prefer to try out as many different addresses as possible. Yet I also have a few favorites that I return to every time. Älskade Traditioner on Södermalm (or Söder, as the locals call the island) is one of them.

Waffles

Wafels bij Älskade Traditioner Stockholm

The specialty of Älskade Traditioner are their waffles. They serve waffles for breakfast, for lunch, as fika and waffles in all possible shapes: the classic waffle, the waffle wrap, … This waffle with banana, meringue, ice cream and chocolate sauce was a real calorie bomb but so delicious!

Milkshakes

Another must try is the freak shake. Very instagrammable. On top of the milkshake is a cookie, a donut, lots of whipped cream,… Talking about calories. To compensate, I took a long walk in the afternoon and skipped diner.

The interior (and some staff) of Älskade Traditioner is completely retro. There is even a jukebox. A unique interior that will take you back to the 60s. The toilet is also worth a visit. I don’t know of any other toilet that has a telephone! I also know of few toilets that I have already taken a picture of…

Fika

In addition to the waffles and milkshakes, you can eat many other sweets. The place is especially busy on weekends. It is therefore best to plan your visit at less obvious times. As soon as it is a bit warmer, you can also sit on the terrace.

Gildas Rum, fika on Södermalm (Stockholm)

Posted in Stockholm E by
Fika bij Gildas Rum

Strolling the streets of Stockholm, window shopping and stopping for fika every now and then. Sometimes it shouldn’t be more. In Södermalm you will find a lot of trendy fika places. The vintage trend can be felt everywhere. One of the cafes with the most authentic atmosphere is Gildas Rum. Rum is Swedish for room and therefore has nothing to do with the drink rum 😉

Back in time at Gildas Rum

It seems as if time has stood still in Gildas Rum. With their nostalgic seats and furnishings, you immediately imagine yourself in the library of an old mansion. The authentic interior takes you along in a hint of nostalgia. To be honest, my photos do absolutely no justice to the cozy cafe. In my defense: I took them on a dark December day with my old smartphone. A perfect excuse to go back there again. As if I need an excuse for returning…

At Gildas Rum they serve delicious coffee, tea, hot chocolate with pastries and the famous fika bread. In the afternoon you can go there for sandwiches or a salad. The menu is written in Swedish on a large blackboard. You order at the counter. They are happy to help you translate the menu. In the summer months you can also enjoy the sunny terrace.

Sturekatten: fika in Stockholm

Posted in Stockholm E by
Sturekatten

Days when you barely take pictures are often the best. So I only had 1 photo of the address I want to share today. When I was in Stockholm in December 2016, I visited Sturekatten for the first time. Earlier that weekend we had already visited (for the umpteenth time) Vete-katten and although they are both traditional tearooms, you can hardly compare them.

Sturekatten is hidden in a small, authentic building near Stureplan. It is less known among tourists and that is why I would highly recommend it. There are a total of 3 floors. The room is divided into many small salons. You can just imagine sitting in your grandmother’s living room! In the summer months you can also sit outside.

Sturekatten Stockholm

The history of Sturekatten

Sturekatten is one of the oldest ‘konditori’ in Stockholm. It is located in a 17th century house in the Riddargatan, near Stureplan. Sturekatten has been pampering its guests with homemade pastries and sandwiches with fresh fillings since 1924. The interior dates from around the turn of the century and the staff wear a traditional uniform.

Practical information

How do you reach Sturekatten?

Take the metro to Östermalmstorg. From here it is a 3 minute walk.

Address: Riddargatan 4, Stockholm

Opening hours

Sturekatten is open 7/7. From Monday to Friday they are open from 9 am to 7 pm. On Saturday they are open from 9 am to 6 pm and on Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm.
