Odinsborg, Gamla Uppsala Tips (3)

Odinsborg, Gamla Uppsala: Not a bad cafe

A nice enough cafe at Gamla Uppsala. Go up to the cashier and order your food. The cafe is geared primarily to Swedes, but the staff tries hard to explain the menu to foreign tourists. After you order (and pay), you'll be given a numbered flag. The staff will bring the your order out to you.

The food won't win any culinary awards, but it's well-prepared and not outrageously priced. Outdoor seating is available, if you don't mind competing with mosquitos and ravens for your lunch.

Favorite Dish The food was perfectly OK. I had meatballs with lingonberries, while Sara had baked salmon.

Odinsborg, Gamla Uppsala: Traditional

You cannot make an Uppsala page without mentioning Odinsborg. Out in Old Uppsala, this is where thousands of students have come to drink mead during nationalistic evenings in mid 19th to 20th century, and later, come to have hot chocolate after a day's skiing. Today, the viking legacy is still there and the rooms are full of drinking horns and such in the house which itself looks like a traditional Nordic hall. Downstairs, there is a nice cafe and restaurant with simple but decent dishes like pasta, salmon and meatballs, sandwhiches and cakes. Upstairs is the more classy restaurant with an expensive buffet and cosy setting. Still today, this establishment serves its own mead which has made it famous, although it is nowhere near as strong as vikings would have drunk it but has a clear taste of honey. Around the corner is a souvenir shop which despite the usual tourist trap things also have some really nice items. Odinsborg is also popular as a place for wedding parties and viking events so do not be surprised...

Favorite Dish Salmon will creamy dill potatoes.
