    Caf? TinTin: Always open

    by MickeH Written Apr 19, 2006

    Cafe TinTin

    This whole cafe is filled with pictures of Tin Tin and his friends. tables, walls, everywhere. The atmosphere is good and relaxed and although it's a little expensive, as many cafe's are, it is worth both your time and money.

    This is a great cafe, and what is so great about it is that it never closes. So in the day it's a nice cafe to enjoy a pice of pie or a sandwich and a nice cup of coffe or what have you. And in the night it turns in to the last stop before bed. Say you have had a long night, it's three or four in the morning and you stumble out of your favourite pub only to find the last tram long gone. You now have a decision to make, walk the long way home or slip into Cafe TinTin and enjoy a hot cup of coffe and a bite to eat while waiting for the early mornings first trams. Hmmm, decisions....

    George du Wal: Fabulous Fika!

    by Todd64 Updated Feb 26, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    O.k..you've been strolling around enjoying the sights when suddenly, out of the blue, your sweetheart says; "Let me take you out to Fika!"

    What are you going to do?

    Well,...you're going to let them of course. Why? Because they'll probably know the perfect place to go, and in our case visiting George du Wal was Charlotte's lovely little surprise for me.

    Favorite Dish: The "Afternoon Tea".

    For a mere 160kr, you're served tea for two consisting of freshly baked bisquits, creamy butter, 2 types of lovely fruit jam, little melted cheese & ham finger-sandwiches and your choice of 1out of 5 selections of cake or pastry. You're also served your choice of either tea or coffee.

    The food was fantastic, the fresh coffee even better, but in a cozy and relaxed place such as this, it's the company you're in which makes all the difference in the world.

    Café culture: Cafe Marmelad

    One of the best cafes in town and worth the extra trip to Majorna for. At first, it might not look like it has a huge interior wintertime but go downstairs and you are met by an oriental looking room, jokingly called the "snogging room" for its ambiance. The cafe sells huge plates of Middle Eastern inspired salads and sandwiches as well as pies and yummy cakes and is a good lunch option. Summertime you can sit along the pavement and watch the world and trams go by.

    Favorite Dish: Hummus and avocado sandwich

    various: All the cafes in Haga

    by Sjalen Updated Jul 5, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Am I gonna eat all this?!

    All the cafes in Haga are nice but some change owners now and again so not to have to keep up with it all I won't mention any favourite. Haga is a nice old part of the city centre with gift shops and antiquities (see tips on both sights and shopping) and the cafes reflect this. Popular amongst students too since they get lots for their money and it is close to several university faculties as well as the 'intellectual' Linnéstaden part of the city with veggie restaurants, film clubs etc. There is a thing going on with which café can offer the biggest cinnamon bun in Haga and in later years this has even spread to other parts of the city so if you are hungry for something sweet, this is the place to go for value for money!

    Favorite Dish: Huge cinnamon buns! The cafes compete with each other about who makes the biggest buns so if you fancy sweet wheat buns and a cup of tea/coffe and feel hungry - this is the place to look.
