This Stockholm establishment is so popular, it has even opened a branch in Los Angeles, California. Luckily for us, the rest of its cafes are in central Stockholm. A local favourite is in the middle of Södermalm island; what it lacks in robot murals (you have to go to Norrmalm for that) it makes up for with the smell of flowers, as there’s no wall between the café and the plant boutique next-door. The staff are chatty, the coffee top-rated and the fika is simply delicious. Grab a pistachio and blackcurrant bulle and a friend, or your laptop for some light working, and blend in amongst the Stockholmers.
Time Out tip: Besides the coffee, Il Caffe also does great leaf tea. There are no teapots, but you can ask for it in a coffee filter instead.
