The Café Suédois is an integral part of the Swedish Cultural Institute in the l'Hôtel de Marle, a magnificent mansion in the Marais built between the 15th and 18th centuries. You can while away a sunny afternoon with a good book in its peaceful paved courtyard, or retreat to the pretty café if it’s cold and wet. It’s a bit like eating at Ikea, but better. Every morning before opening, a passionate team of Swedish pastry chefs prepare fresh bread, elderflower cordial and a range of seasonal delicacies. The lunch menu consists of a selection of sandwiches, including one with succulent marinated salmon, as well as carrot cake, cinnamon rolls, cranberry tart, and a daily soup special in winter. The latter is a little pricey (€6 for a small bowl), but the sandwiches and cakes are reasonable, and everything is fresh and delicious.

A really charming place to enjoy coffee and cake. There are often good exhibitions on at the Swedish Institute as well. For fans of all things 'Scandi', it's the closest thing you'll find to Stockholm in Paris...
