Try Something New
If you’ve never had fresh Kakor, Bröd, Tårtor, Bullar, Bakver, Smörgåsar or a hot Drycker, this is the place to do it. The Swedish cakes and pastries are great to go, but guests are also welcome to stay and have a quick bite inside the café’s 16-person seating area. Dressed in light coloured woods and glass the bakery is a warm and comfortable place to enjoy a hot coffee and a warm pastry in the morning or a terrific sandwich in the afternoon.
Relying solely on word of mouth to build the business for the past five years, The Halso Konditori Swedish Bakery Café is as busy as it gets these days. But despite the volume of business, you won’t find a better place in the city to pick up the fresh baked tastes of Sweden. You can smell the freshness blocks away and it’s definitely worth discovering.
