I'm a regular customer to this family owned café and really like it for their breakfast and nice atmosphere. It's good to take a simple lunch or have fika or coffee. I highly recommend it.

We got the breakfast tower plus scrambled eggs, bacon, and yogurt. Oh and juice and coffee. Okay okay, I couldn't make up my mind, but it all got eaten and I was very happy. And there was a free Belgian waffle bar!

The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is very welcoming. The "lyxfrukost" is very large and diverse with fruits, cheese and the breads. Totally worth the price. Only minus for the music, that could be a bit more quiet and maybe more calm.

In the Göteborg tradition of fine cafés, Ethel's is one. Good breakfast and brunch. Might no be "brunch" to everyone,but still... Very friendly, good service and great products. You will stay awhile.

I come here for breakfast/brunch once in awhile. Their deluxe brunch is beautifully presented on a 3-level-plate. One could wish for a better selection of bread to make the perfect breakfast, though. It includes yoghurt OR egg&bacon, fruit, hot drink of your choice, juice, bread and scones. Adding extra is possible. Deluxe brunch is over SEK100 - a bit pricy.... More

Homemade personal café with an oriental touch. Great quality food and nice staff. Can be very full on weekends and late afternoons, but it's worth the squeeze if you need to.

Ethels god a feeling for design and good food, the place is cosy and the food is good. Unfortunatly the service is what pulls it all down, A friendly smile or from the staff wouldn't hurt. My firends and I feel taken for granted and were moved around like cattle so that the space could be optimized.
