Cozy cafes outside Stockholm - 9 favourites

We love going on road trips just outside Stockholm. Is there anything more wonderful than just getting in the car and driving away from the noise and stress of the city and enjoying a cup of coffee in the countryside? There are many cozy cafes to visit on a day trip from Stockholm, but we have a few places and garden cafes that we often and happily return to. Places that not only serve good coffee, but also offer some extra cozy environments.

Remember to read about opening hours before you go out to these cafes, as several of them are only open during the summer season.


Hornudden's garden

Hornudden's eco-café outside of Strängnäs, we usually visit at least once a summer. Here the menu follows what can be harvested in the garden and there is both food and coffee. Sitting here in the sunshine and watching the sun glisten in the lake - it's summer! Also take the opportunity to buy vegetables from the farm before you go home!

Nibble Farm

Just outside Enköping is cozy Nibble farm with its garden cafe and farm shop. Here at the family-owned cafe, a cup of coffee tastes best in the shade of the big trees and with the chickens cackling in the background.

Stavsnäs Home Bakery

Farthest east of Stockholm lies Stavsnäs home bakery. Here you will find a cozy café that is open all year round and serves both delicious pastries and light lunches. There is a large parking lot outside, so it is easy to go here.

The Nut House

The Nut House in Upplands Väsby is a combined cafe and garden shop, in a rural location with nice views. Here you will find pastries, waffles, sandwiches and a lunch buffet. The last time I was here, I had a mighty chocolate cake with a large press coffee and bought a small cement frog for the balcony. Shopping and coffee = best combo!

Güntherska Hovkonditori & Schweizeri

In the middle of Uppsala is one of the most classic cafes I know. Guntherska serves the most perfect pastries and cakes and you almost feel like you are sitting in an old cafe in Vienna. So good and beautiful!

Printz Bakery

If you ask me which bakery bakes the best bread in the entire Mälardalen, I will answer without hesitation Printz Bakery in Stallarholmen! All the breads I've bought here so far have been absolutely magical and their cardamom buns are not to be missed! Worth a detour!

Taxinge Castle

Taxinge Castle also called the cake castle. Their website promises there are always at least 65 varieties of cakes and cookies to choose from and I don't think I've ever been askedviken over supply. Beautiful environment and incredibly good pastries! Cozy to visit even during the winter, when a popular Christmas market is held here.

Rosenhills Garden and Musteri

Bohemian, charming and very unpretentious. Rosenhill is located in an oasis of apple trees and offers home-baked cakes and ingredients from the area. We often go here in the autumn to pick apples and finish with a steaming hot coffee. A wonderful Sunday fun!

Café Hovgården

This summer we discovered Café Hovgården on Adelsö, a small and cozy country cafe in an old homestead. The cafe is right next to the world heritage Hovgården, which is Birka's royal court. Keep in mind that you have to take a car ferry from Ekerö/Munsö to get here, so you need to keep an eye on the time.

    This is really a post completely to my taste. My first thought when I read it was that we need to get a car so that I can easily get to all these places… Taxinge Castle that is… what a dream with so many cookies. 🙂

      Taxinge Castle is a must for anyone who likes cookies! However, it can easily get out of hand, when you realize how many cookies you have picked up... 🙂
