The place feels like visiting your grandma (in a good way :) )! Fantastic cakes, great coffee! Then you get out to the garden and on a sunny day, there is a fantastic view and you get to enjoy every minute you spend there. It's a place you want to come back to

This quaint garden restaurant off the beaten track offers gorgeous surroundings and a variety of delicious looking treats and eats. But once we dug our teeth into our cakes, the fun ended abruptly. Everything was dry and dull. Even my sweet-toothed 3 year old set his plate aside. The others in our company had food and this seemed to be... More

this is a cute little cafe filled with treats that are great for fika. they have seats out by the waterfront, which is truly beautiful! the only thing i would say is be cautious of bees that are attracted to the sweet treats.

We had read about this cafe and we visited Vaxholm island almost because of it. We enjoyed our lunch (a highlight was fresh shrimps) - there were pretty tables indoors but we chose to sit outside to admire the view. The table display of cakes was mouth-watering and needless to say, we didn't resist temptation.

We enjoyed a sunny Monday with very few others around. Comfy seats, great cappuccino and of course pastries . 10 min walk from the port. This is a don't miss if you have time to enjoy a 1:15 min ride from Stockholm. Great walk.

This is a must visit when in Vaxholm. The good is great and the view by the water is very serene. There is plenty of seating so don't be worried about the amount of people inside ordering food. You won't regret checking out this cafe!

We stopped here for lunch one day while out in the archipeligo. The savory options are all prepared to order but came quickly and were tasty. We steered clear of the cakes which were surrounded by wasps and there appeared to be no control of this at all, room for improvement. This is a busy cafe and the provision of... More

Find a table in the garden facing the waterfront. Order sandwiches, cakes and drinks. Enjoy the ambiance and quality of food. This is the best of casual non-demanding outdoor eating in the Stockholm archipelago--buty it requires good weather--and that we had.
