From healthy and light to full on indulgence, here's the best places for a weekend treat in the Swedish capital

A weekend activity that is pretty much always a winner in Stockholm (no the matter company, weather or location), is brunching – starting the day with the combination of meeting friends and family over delectable food and thirst-quenching drinks can never really go wrong.


Fortunately, Sweden's capital city has a wide range of restaurants and cafes to keep your brunch options fresh. We've gathered some of our favourites below, with dishes and drinks for all kinds of taste buds and moods.



For refreshing smoothie bowls, delicious salads, a delectable porridge buffet and freshly squeezed juices, Bodybuddy is the spot for a fresh start to the weekend, perhaps after a yoga class at Yogayama's Östermalm studio below. Don’t miss their remarkable 'Coco bud' and their famous banana bread made with a secret recipe (yes, we've asked; no, they wouldn't tell us). And make sure to get a spot on their outdoor terrace if it’s sunny.

Pom & Flora

Avocado on rye, yoghurt bowls and porridges mixed with cinnamon buns and grilled Nutella croissants can be found at both Vasastan and Södermalm locations of this healthy eatery. Portions are relatively small, which means more room to indulge from the menu. Favourites include the Acai + Berry smoothie bowl, the Rhubarb porridge, 100% Eggs and their juices. A plus is the option for gluten-free bread, and if you really fall in love with the place don't forget to check out their own cookbook, available to purchase at both locations.

À la Lo café & cantine

Run by a mother and daughter and created due to their passion for France, this new plant-based gem on Birger Jarlsgatan is a must if you crave something fresh, healthy and utterly satisfying. Their Turkish yoghurt bowl and the levain with avocado and cream cheese are to die for, and we also love their 'Pain perdu', which is their own version of French toast and is only available during the weekend brunch. The creative dishes, gorgeous interior and fun people-watching opportunities will definitely inspire you. We're already dreaming of more locations from this gem opening in the future.

Gluten-free, plant-based and free from raffinated sugars – and with an acai-bowl rumoured to be one of the very best in town – Banacado's menu provides a health fix as part of their nourishing weekend brunch. Their drinks list includes options such as matcha latte, turmeric shots, green juices and Chicca Roast, and their homemade chocolate chip cookie is the perfect dessert to-go. We also love the cute interior, resembling a diner coated in pastels mixed with oil paintings, books and plants to give the feel of a cosy living room.

Nybrogatan 38

A quaint and feel-at-home sanctuary in the heart of Östermalm, Nybrogatan 38 serves up classic dishes such as eggs benedict, burgers and American-style pancakes, as well as their own version of Caesar salad (with halloumi and crispy avocado) and scrambled eggs with truffle. This is the perfect restaurant to enjoy a brunch with the family or friends before hitting the town for some shopping.

Café Pascal

Café Pascal is pretty much always busy, which is why we are happy they have two locations, one on Södermalm and one by Odenplan. It is easy to understand the reason behind the buzz since it’s absolutely impossible to choose what to indulge in. You can relish homemade bread and buns, salads, freshly roasted coffee, juices and more. If a savoury treat is the name of your game, the brisket sandwich with gruyere, sauerkraut and mustard is a must-order.

Sthlm Brunch Club

According to locals, Sthlm Brunch Club is the best brunch in Vasastan. Even better, it's served all week long and from early morning until afternoon. There might be a bit of a wait for a table but they make up for it by offering you the most delicious and extremely Instagram-friendly dishes such as fluffy American pancakes, avocado toast, eggs benedict and bagels.

Stora Bageriet

With their large selection of artisan breads and pastries, Stora Bageriet (meaning 'the big bakery') is where to get your carb fix. This place really shows how something simple like bread and butter can be incredibly tasty, and we absolutely love their 'Danish Breakfast', which includes levain bread, butter, cheese and homemade marmalade. Another delicious option is their 'Smooth Wheat Porridge' – traditional oatmeal with seasonal topping and whipped yoghurt. The Scandinavian interior gives a refreshing feel to it all and the larger tables make it possible to bring groups of friends, or your computer to catch up with some work.

Långa Raden at Hotel Skeppsholmen

Tucked away from the city noise on the tranquil island of Skeppsholmen, Långa Raden at Hotel Skeppsholmen is a charming sanctuary to visit whenever you feel like escaping the buzz for a while, without technically leaving the city. A stroll to this secluded little hideaway is the perfect Sunday activity, with some delicious delights lying in wait. Their scrambled eggs and freshly baked bread are two highlights on the buffet, in addition to the cute mini-sized cinnamon buns. The ambiance feels both casual and chic and their quaint garden is the perfect place to unwind after the meal.

Villa Dagmar

Östermalm’s newest hotel addition, Villa Dagmar is not only one of Stockholm’s hottest places for a staycation, but also hosts one of the best brunches in town on the weekends. The courtyard, à la hotel Costes in Paris, has a very international feel to it and the atmosphere almost makes it feel like you’ve left Scandinavia for a little while. Their menu includes both a wide selection of cocktails and alcohol-free options, as well as their famous pizzas, salads and burgers. Don’t forget to try their Citron dessert, which is a treat for both the eyes and the taste buds, and afterwards check out their curated shop right next to the restaurant.

Boketto at Blique by Nobis

With a menu including sections such as 'eggs', 'give me gluten', 'vegan & veggy', and 'sweet', you know there are going to be delicious dishes for everyone at Boketto. A few favourites are the coconut granola fruit bowl and American berry pancakes, and don’t miss their extensive drinks menu with everything from creative cocktails to sweet shakes. The whole hotel, including the amazing rooftop bar Arc, is also worth checking out while you’re here.

Bonnie’s at Bank Hotel

With both a buffet and an à la carte menu (a tip is to order the Eggs Royale and the oatmeal with blackberries) you will definitely not leave hungry when you visit Bonnie's. A glass of Champagne is also included in the Bank Hotel’s 'Lazy Breakfast & Bubbles' concept, served on weekends from 11.30am. The emerald green velvet sofas combined with the majestic chandeliers create a luxurious ambiance and make Bonnie’s your go-to brunch spot for celebrations or whenever you want an extra treat.
