I will tell you about the hotspot Wienercaféet (the Wienercafé) in Stockholm today. Since we’re four days off, this is a good place to go to. Also if you would like to visit Stockholm from another country; this is a great place to see. This hotspot is in the heart of the center, close to Stureplan and Drottninggatan (the queen street).
Wienercaféet exists since 1904, which makes it a place full of history. It’s influenced by Paris and Vienna. The perfect place to bring my watch from Nicole Vienna. It’s shows in the ambiance and in the building. When entering this tearoom, you have to wait to be seated. It’s usually very busy, so making a reservation is recommendable. Otherwise, you might have to wait a little bit. Booking a table is possible online too! Click on “bordsbokning” on their website.
Since I’m such a fan of ceilings, I took a picture of the great ceiling to show you the details. Look at the amazing chandeliers!
You can find lots of sweetness to have a Swedish “fika” (coffee with something sweet). Cinnamon rolls, Wienerbröd (bread with yellow kind of pudding filling), lot’s of different cakes. You can eat sandwiches or wraps as well. You can also order crèpes and champagne. You can order breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner or an afternoon tea. They even have a vegetarian afternoon tea.
The confectionery is on the Biblioteksgatan (library street). Seated next to the great windows, you can see people pass by and watch them shopping and walk the street. Hereunder you see the food that we ordered. I took a croque monsieur and Mache took a hamburger. The food was very tasty, the service is extremely good for Swedish standards. To be served is not general, it’s more an exception in Sweden than standard. We went here with our friends Debora and Magnus. They were seated the table next to us. If you make a reservation, you can have a table for four as well. This was however like a double date. Two tables for two made to suit our group of four.
They have a great amount of beverages, different coffees, tea and drinks. Hereunder you see Debora. She’s a wonderful friend and we became very close in short time. She’s from Brazil and married to her Swedish love Magnus. It’s great to share our similar experiences as being an expat in a different country. Moving here for love and getting used to the Swedish traditions, which aren’t so similar to the Dutch or Brazilian ones. She has a big heart and speaks her mind. This is why we connect so well; we’re not so “lagom” as the Swedish say. “Lagom” means not too much, not too little, just in the middle. We are both much more expressive and show emotions. It’s great to hang out with people you can be yourself with and stay yourself; even moving to a country with other habits sometimes. We keep the best of both worlds. And there are enough Swedes in Sweden anyways.
So guys, what do you think of Wienercaféet?
