I have had a lot of work lately and this weekend it was time for a well earned after work with my co-workers! I also visited a newly opened patisserie here in Stockholm this weekend. Here is my review of both places and if you ever are visiting Sweden these are two places you should definitely visit for some down time from all sightseeing!
Scandic Continental, Vasagatan 22, 111 20 Stockholm
Scandic Continental is new built hotel in the heart of Stockholm City, only 2 minutes from the main train station. It has 8 floors and on the 8th floor there is a roof terrace bar. There is stunning views of Stockholm where you can see the city hall. Even though it was almost mid October we sat outside. They have infrared heaters so it was warm and cozy!
The bar menu is limited but they still have some food. We did order a shared platter with antipasti. It is a very popular place for after work and we were there at 4pm. 30 minutes later it was packed and very difficult to find seats. We, Swedes love our after work on Fridays so if you visit on a Friday be early!
Mr Cake, Rådmansgatan 12, 114 25 Stockholm
Mr Cake is a new patisserie in Stockholm run by two Swedish famous pastry chefs , Roy Fares & Mattias Ljungberg. It opened in September and I first heard about it a vlog on YouTube. When we arrived the queue was very long. But we still stayed and it was worth the wait! There was plenty too choose from. If you only want to try one thing I highly recommend the red velvet croissant,it is red and has cream cheese frosting inside. It can not be missed!
Although the prices are rather high, it is so worth it. The cakes are also highly recommended, I went for the salty caramel cakes and it was so lovely! Although it was very rich! It is a rather large slice so you can easily share it! To drink I went for a hot chocolate, thinking that it was going to come in a mug with no extras, but it came in a large glass with cream and a topping. It was like eating another cake! If you have the option to visit on a weekday I think you will have a better chance of getting a seat without having to wait. And if you are lucky you will get too see both Roy Fares & Mattias Ljungberg.
What have you been up to this weekend?
