Food Guide: Drop Coffee, Stockholm/Sweden | ThatSwedishTraveller

Try the best coffee in Stockholm

As I am in my hometown Stockholm right now, I visited the award winning roastery and coffeehouse Drop Coffee today. The small café is situated near Mariatorget, in Södermalm or “Söder” – the hipster part of town.

The food & drinks

I had a tasty cappuccino and I also tried the egg & green mayo sandwich (95 SEK all together). The unique part was the “Computer room”, an area dedicated to people who work from their laptop. Complete with wall sockets for everyone!

The space

The place seemed to be popular, a queue of people all the time, and their outdoor seating was great as well – even tho the weather today wasn’t. The seating inside was nice tho. I’ll definitely come back for another cup!

Gothenburg summer vibes

Gothenburg is lovely atm and I haven’t shared a lot of photos on here for a while. So here’s some pictures from my favourite Swedish town! It’s mostly food and some pictures from my photo shoot with David. Let me know if you have any questions about where the photos are taken.

I’m currently working a lot, but I try to make little trips to places nearby. My next planned trip is to Palma in Spain, but that’s in August so i suspect that something spontaneus might appear before that… You never know! Now I’m off to ride my new bike around Gothenburg. Have a nice day ☺️🌻

Lindholmen Street Food Market | Gbg, SWE

New tip for Gothenburg visitors or residents!

Every Saturday until Midsummer (end of June) you can visit this market in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Eat food from all over the world (my fave was the Porkbelly Bao), drink local produced beer, shop from the design market, hang out, listen to good music and have an awesome day all over! It’s pretty crowded with hipsters of all ages, so be on time! The vibe is very chill and makes me think of a hip brunch place in NYC, with that said, you’re gonna love it!

Located in Lindholmen, on the island of Hisingen, this market is only minutes away from the city center with bus or boat! And it’s open between 12-17 every Saturday!

Enjoy my photos from this weekend!

Where to eat: in Gothenburg – Mexikanska Monarkin

Where to eat in Gothenburg?

Well, for Mexican food there is actually some really good options. Yesterday me and Philip tried Mexikanska Monarkin (Mexican Monarchy) which was really good! They had small and big dishes, tacos, non tacos and desserts…

We ordered a combo dinner menu with snacks and two medium dishes. It was sooo good! We had beef tacos and chicken quesadilla with guacamole, bean dip and pickled mushrooms. Unreal. And not pricey. I can’t believe I’ve been living in Gothenburg since 2014 and never heard of this place. And I’m a taco lover! 🍻🌮


So much food! Look at that guac gone already, haha…

 

 

The bar area had this awesome wall art… AW Maria as they announced it (After work 😉)

 

The interior was so cute as well and for a second it felt like we were abroad. Especially since the staff spoke spanish to each other. The bar offered Corona’s & margaritas, and much more, and I’m definatly not done with this place. I want to come back to try more of their dishes. For a warm and colourful meal, head over to Mexikanska Monarkin!

For other taco places in Gothenburg, check out: Tacos and Tequila , Little Meats and Tranquilo.

One year anniversary

One year as a couple

I can’t believe how quick time flies.. Me and Philip just celebrated one year together as a couple (even though we met for the first time like 7 months before the 28th of February 2017, when we officially became a couple!). We’ve both moved apartments three times since then and now we live together. We have travelled to Prague, Barcelona and Budapest together since then and we both finish our University degrees this summer. I can’t wait to start off this amazing year together with Philip!

For our celebration we went to the Italian restaurant Nonna, here in Gothenburg. It was soooo good! We had antipasti and pasta and I finished off with some tiramisu! There is always room for dessert, right?

I loved it at Nonna. It was our first time visiting and the atmosphere was sooo cute, and I loved the olive tree in the middle of the tables! And they even played Italian radio in the background. The food was lovely and not to pricey. I’d definitely bring my friends over for a gossipy night out at this Italian gem!

Tell me if you have any tips on Italy, I’ve only been there when I was younger and would love to go back and rediscover it! Ciao for now!

My Best Brunches in Gothenburg, SWE

Hello there!

Today I’m sharing some valuable information if you love brunch and are in Gothenburg, or are planning to come over. I love to have brunch and whenever I’m abroad I always make sure to go to the most epic brunch spots (and obviously I do so here at home as well). So I figured I’ll share some of my favourites from Gothenburg, since I’ve been trying a lot of the brunch spots here. This is My Best Brunches in Gothenburg! Psst.. they’re not listed in any specific order, I love them all!

Bönor och Bagels

This place has the most beautiful outdoor seating, the place inside is quite small. I love their fresh juices, great coffee and breakfast deals. The name of the place is beans and bagels, so yes, the coffee and the bagels are great! There’s not only brunch, there is also salads and soups and even dessert bagels!

Come here in the spring/summertime and sip your coffee while people watching!

 

Brogyllen/Västra Hamngatan

This place is well established and has everything from breakfast to lunch and freshly baked bread. The place is gorgeous inside, loads of tables and a big chandelier in the ceiling. I recommend their Vårfrukost (spring breakfast) which is in the picture above.

Come here to sit outside and people watch or sit inside for a more sophisticated brunch environment.

Brogyllen has several cafes spread out in Gothenburg, find your own favourite!

Egg & Milk

I love this American inspired 50’s diner! Simply put, what you get here is egg and milk! Pancakes with loads of different toppings, eggs in different variations, bacon, yoghurt, fresh fruit and bagels are just some of their dishes! I’ve been here several times.. if it’s sunny the outdoor seating is perfect, otherwise the indoor diner is nice too. On weekends there’s usually a line out the door, so come here early, or try to come on a weekday. Thursdays is all pancake you can eat day!

Come here both for the interior and the food. Sit inside for the full experience or sit outside in the sun (the seating is on the sunny side of the road in the morning, which is a plus).

 

Kafferosten

This place is sooo cozy. A few tables inside, more seating outside when it’s season. The place is very artsy and the staff is lovely. The brunch deal includes one plate like the one above, it’s also a buffet included to top up your yoghurt with muesli and berries or add a croissant etc. The coffee is really good and the barista puts much love in your cappuccinos and lattes.

Come here to hang out with good friends and sit almost aaaaall day long.

 

Ethels Cafe

This place doesn’t look much for the eye from the outside, but their Lyxfrukost (luxury breakfast) is really nice. It comes on a three story plate, like the ones for Afternoon tea, and it includes all from bread and fruit to yoghurt and egg and bacon. The place is quite small and the staff is really nice.

Come here to sit and nibble from the three story plate for hours.

 

JOS/Domkyrkan

This place is quite hip and very instagram friendly. There is two JOS cafes in Gothenburg and I prefer the one at Domkyrkan. The place has very nice interior, white and light with an industrial feeling. The fresh food is a feast both for the stomach and for the eyes. This is a common lunch place so avoid lunch hours for a chill vibe.

Come here to catch up with friends, study, co-work or just buy a juice on the go! No outdoor seating available, besides two benches without tables.

 

Other places that I have visited for brunch that are really nice is Bellora, Clarion Hotel Post, Cuckoos nest and Daily Dose. Its been a while though, so I’ll have to revisit them to be able to share updated information about them. All the spots listed above are really good eats though and as you notice Gothenburg offer great brunch opportunities! I’m waiting for the sun in April/May. The springtime is a perfect time to enjoy the newly opened outdoor seating at almost all the cafes and restaurants. I think I’ll have to make another round visiting all these places again! Do you feel hungry for a brunch as well?

Please let me know if you found this post valuable and want more tips or have some more brunch spots to add to the list!

Love & wanderlust,

Isabelle
