Hotspot: Vete-Katten Stockholm

Vete-katten Vete-kattenHello People,
How was your weekend? Look at how my weekend started! I went to this Hotspot “Vete-Katten”. Or actually Konditori Vete-Katten. The Swedish word “Konditori” means “Confectionery”. Literally “Vete-Katten” means “The wheat Cat”. But “Det vete katten” is a Swedish expression which stands for “I don’t know”. It means literally “The cat knows it”. So enough Swedish words haha. Let me take you to this amazing place to have a Fika. As you might know, to have a Fika in Sweden, is having a coffee with something sweet. It’s something people do when they meet for the first time; it’s safe because it’s public and it won’t take that long usually.
I went with my friend Debora here, she is a good friend and we spent a lot of time here. We feel that this is one of the nicest places to go to in Stockholm to have a fika.
The entrance is very romantic, the perfect cakes are showing off through the window, it looks very welcoming! Did you know that this place started in 1928!
Vete-kattenThis place is a coffee place to sit and have a good time, but it’s also a shop where you can buy sweets, chocolate and cake to bring home. You have to wait in line, pick your order, pay and take your order yourself to a table. It’s very normal in Sweden. I wasn’t so used to that in The Netherlands, but now I don’t know better.
Vete-katten Vete-kattenThere is just so much to choose from!
Vete-kattenThis is the Classic Semla. It’s made of wheat dough, whipped cream and almond paste. You’re supposed to eat it on Tuesdays seven weeks before Easter. They call this day also “Fettisdagen”, it’s 47 days before Easter.
Vete-kattenIMG_1866A “Pepperkaka” is a cookie which the Swedes eat a lot around the Christmas days. I’ve been eating it a lot and you can compare them a little bit with a “Speculaasje” in Dutch or a ginger cookie.
IMG_1867They have some muffins, croissants and sandwiches as well.
Vete-katten Vete-katten Vete-KattenThis was our little food party! I had a cheese-cake and a croissant with a caffe latte. Deborah had a coffee with milk, a little torte with raspberries and a cinnamon role (kanelbulle in Swedish). It was very tasty. Vete-katten Vete-kattenThis place is quit big and in the back there’s an area where everything looks very traditional and cosy. I just love how they decorate it so traditionally. I had to show you guys.
You can book a VIP-room here or order food too. Vete-KattenFun-fact; One of the things we spoke about was “Selfies” and we took a selfie of course. Debora is a beautiful and wonderful person inside and out.

      Haha Christa, go for it. Ik zoek nog altijd semlor met room met suiker, maar ik zag ook al dat ze een vanille variant hadden, die lijkt me erg lekker! xxx

        Ik ben ook niet zo gek op die met ongezoete slagroom maar ik vermijd nu gewoon de supermarktsemlor (die zijn nóóit lekker) en koop ze nu eigenlijk altijd bij Gateau! Duur maar zó lekker, en ik kan me niet voorstellen dat ze bij Vetekatten niet ook lekker zijn, eigenlijk! Met vanille klinkt ook goed ja! Of zelf proberen te bakken haha!
