There’s “locally-sourced” and then there’s Rosendals Trädgård, which rustles up daily lunch deals from the fresh veggies, herbs and flowers plucked directly from its enormous biodynamic allotments. The bread, pies and pastries are baked by hand in a wood-burning oven next door. In the middle of Djurgården island, Rosendal’s land was previously part of the Swedish royal family’s back garden, now the city’s largest public park. Guests here get the chance to dine inside a light-filled greenhouse or from the spacious outdoor terrace, surrounded by leafy trees, creepers and flower beds. The kitchen is currently headed up by British chef Billy White, who specialises in hearty flavour-packed European fare. There are typically just two mains to choose from, alongside a vegetarian soup. Sadly, Rosendal’s cafe doesn’t offer evening meals, shutting up shop at 5pm.
Time Out tip: Stop by for afternoon tea if you’re not in the area at lunchtime, but beware: the best cakes sell out quickly.
