What's the best cafe in Stockholm? My vote goes towards a tiny shop among the cobblestones of Gamla Stan.
I know there's no one else who will appreciate this combination of jumbo meringues and anthropology quite like all of you. That's why I felt compelled to bring you this tale of our spontaneous visit to Coffee Stop, a teensy tiny coffee shop in the heart of Stockholm's Gamla Stan neighbourhood. It might just be the tiniest cafe in the city! Here's why we loved this wee spot so much.
Crafty signs and enticing riddles.
Gamla Stan is home to some of the Stockholm's best attractions, but some of the restaurants and cafes can run towards the pricey, touristy side of the spectrum. I was thrilled to find something with a bit of personality.
Super friendly staff.
And, of course, the meringues!
If meringues aren't your thing, the cafe does have a small assortment of sweet and savory snacks but it's not a full service restaurant.
This is my happy spot in Stockholm.
