With slick home-like interior features (and Stockholm prices) that make Greasy Spoon’s name sound ironic, this is the most sought-after brunch spot in the city – and for a reason. Their apple crumble pancakes, vegan Full English breakfasts and turmeric lattes are worth the wait. The music’s often Britpop, the staff greet you in English and the wallpaper’s London-themed. The only thing to remind you you’re in Sweden is the pickled red onion on the avocado toast.
You can do brunch in Stockholm one of two ways. Option one is a traditional Swedish buffet, often served in a beautiful old ‘host house’, the perfect combination of history, culture and delicious food.
If you’re not overly fussed about eating like a local, there is also a blossoming American-influenced brunch scene that puts health first but doesn’t skimp on the flavours. Book ahead for the former and just turn up for the latter. Either way, prepare for a gorgeous late-morning meal.
