Bars & Cafes
This little bakery-cum-café is popular among the inhabitants at Lilla Essingen, the part of town said to be Sweden's most densely populated island. Head here to have morning coffee and a sandwich at inexpensive rates.
Mattina is a café on two floors located on Lilla Essingen—a part of town said to be the country's most densely populated island. Sitting at the lower level gives one an interesting view because you are then "beneath" the bridge leading over the water to Kungsholmen. Café Mattina's greatest draw is its early opening hours, which means many of the locals can have their breakfast here before going to work.
Copacabana is a very cozy cafe that is a hub for the queer/alternative community in Stockholm. If has free Wi-Fi access and a selection of books that customers can peruse as they while away their day. Copacabana has been decorated on a budget, with predominantly second-hand furniture. This is not a place where pretentiousness is thought highly of. Despite the low-cost feel to the place, it feels homely, and the view overlooks the water toward Liljeholmen.Their menu consists of an all-day breakfast, one soup of the week, and two main dishes, one of which always caters for vegans. However, there is also a large range of sandwiches, smoothies and baked goodies. - Christian Tsangarides

This is one of Södermalm's cosy coffee shop with a loyal clientele. Its location in a residential area helps make the ambience more relaxed and easy—going. Coffee, tea and various kinds of bread are available — all very cheap. The seating area is slightly small so be prepared to share a table. The furnishing is plain, and the atmosphere warm. The mixed clientele consists of many regulars.
This is definitely Stockholm's best café in the summertime. Escape from the traffic and city noise and park yourself in their charming garden—you will feel you are a million miles away in the tranquil countryside. Lasse i Parken is situated next to Långholmen where you will also find excellent swimming spots. The menu includes coffee, tea, home-baked bread, fruit juices and other goodies.
At this plain but pleasant café, the concept is sport. The walls are decorated with flags and team sweaters. Sporting events are aired non-stop on the TV screens. But even if you are not very interested in athletic pursuits, Café Dello Sport also serves perfect coffee and delicious paninis.
Come winter and there is a pianist here on Fridays and Saturdays, so find your way to this bar in the Scandic Park Hotel, and enjoy "As Time Goes By" and other smooth evergreens. Bring your date with you, sink down into the classic lounge armchairs, check out the super-cool close-fitted carpet in a leopard pattern and listen to the international chorus of voices—French, Italian, Japanese, etc.
It's difficult to choose because all the muffins look really tempting. You'll find a whole range of these saccharine sweet somethings stacked on the racks. The lot changes every day. Try the Chocolate Muffins with Cream Cheese Fillings or Apple and Cinnamon flavours. The Muffins with Zucchini and Feta Cheese are also worth a try. Couple that with a Smoothie, which comes in several fruity flavours.
Hemma hos Julia is best known for their homemade, fresh cheese. This started as an experiment at someone's home, in the bathtub. Nowadays, the cheese is sold in lovely little boxes in several delis all over town, as well as at this café. Julia serves light meals, such as salads, sandwiches, soups, and sweet delights like brownies and carrot cake, to go with your coffee. There are wooden tables and chairs, and the place seems very welcoming.
This tiny place next to Fridhemsplan was established in 1979, and has become famous for its delicious homemade Italian ice cream. Apart from the icy delights, the restaurant also serves espresso, paninis and other Italian food. Keep your eyes open because you could easily walk by and miss this place; the room is absolutely minimal. All the same, its ice cream is said to be the best in town.
