This week, we'll be meeting at the garden cafe called Rosendals Trädgård. I'm sure if you're a Stockholmer, you are already well aware and in love with this cafe. I've been waiting to review this cafe since last year because I missed the best season (aka the summer season) to review it. So, continue reading for my thoughts on this enchanting cafe with the perfect blend of greenery in a metropolis.
Rosendals Trädgård (Rosendal's Garden) is a very large and beautiful garden on the Djurgården island. The main cafe is in a set of white greenhouses with an adorable interior and gravel floors. However, this is not the best part, the main seating area consists of outdoor seating in a gravel courtyard with beautiful greenery and an apple orchard with picnic tables. Rosendal is the best place to go for a coffee and some mud cake.
Who would I bring here: Anyone and everyone, this is my favourite place to go in the summer because of the outdoor seating and everyone should know about it!
The Crowd: Again, anyone and everyone. Rosendal is a Stockholm "smultronställe" (hidden gem) where all and any type of Stockholmer will go for a delicious piece of cake or two.
Coffee: Although I haven't drunk their coffee since last year, I know that both their latte and regular filtered coffee is pretty good (plus, free refills)! Of course, I don't come here for the coffee, more for the scenery and food so a 5.5/10. Average.
Sweets: As previously mentioned, I go to Rosendals Trädgård for the dessert. They have a whole smörgåsbord of cakes, buns, sandwiches and slices that are about the same price as any other trendy cafe in central Stockholm.
Location and hours: Rosendalsvägen 38, 115 21 Stockholm. About a seven-minute walk from the tram stop Bellmansro which you can take from Kungsträdgården. They're open every day between 11 - 17.All in all, Rosendals Trädgård is a wonderful, majestic and gorgeous garden cafe with a lot of dessert options and places to sit. However, although it is gorgeous, it is also quite expensive, a little far from the city centre and at its most pleasant during the summer months. A 7.5/10!
