A friend recommended that we find Konditori Sturegatten, an old-time coffee house in Stockholm, Sweden that’s been in operation since 1924. There’s a lower-level outdoor garden that is open in the summer sometimes, but the main coffee house is up a steep flight of winding stairs (there are railings). The Sturegatten makes all its own pastries and sandwiches, and it’s old-fashioned enough that you’ll see lots of locals enjoying their coffee and newspaper. No hurry here!
The furniture is gently used Victorian – you’ll sit on antique couches and chairs, and enjoy the view out the windows along one side. You can also reserve a meeting room here if you’re looking for a spot to meet up with a group. Our pictures say it all – there’s plenty to eat! You can find the traditional Gempfer, a almond cake with honeycomb, praline, and chocolate cream.
Konditori Sturegatten is located at Riddargatan 4, and is open from 9:00 AM every day except Sunday, when it opens at 10:00 AM.
