Are you going to visit Gothenburg for a weekend or for an exchange year? Then we think you should try some of the amazing coffee places in the city. We've been visiting a lot of fika places in Gothenburg and below we've listed our favorite places.
Café Husaren is maybe one of the most famous coffee places in Gothenburg. The cafe is located in the district Haga (an old district with a lot of small wooden houses) and is most famous for serving gigantic cinnamon buns called "Hagabullen". We haven't tried the gigantic cinnamon buns yet but we can promise that the rest of the pastry assortment is good.
Brogyllen is located near the central station and is a classic confectionery with really beautiful and well-tasting pastries. Here you can find both traditional Swedish pastries (as cinnamon buns) but also more modern pastries as mousse cakes.
Have you been longing for cakes with a taste of America? Then you've to visit Mr Cake. Here you can find a fusion of different cultures, for example, the red velvet croissant is a fusion of the American-French kitchen. Many of the pastries at Mr Cake are a fusion between Swedish-American pastries. Mr Cake is one of the most creative cafes in Gothenburg and here you always can find exciting pastries to try.
Berzellii Choklad (Berzellii Chocolate) is a place for all chocolate lovers (and I promise, we're many out there) where you can find luxurious chocolate pralines and chocolate pastries. A bit expensive but if you want to eat delicious chocolate: this is the place.
Språkcaféet (the language cafe) is an international meeting place in Gothenburg where you have the opportunity to find friends with the same (or a different) language as you. In the evenings you can participate in language teaching there. But you don't need to be interested in language exchanges to visit Språkcaféet: that's a normal cafe with normal coffees and pastries. We think Språkcaféet is an excellent place for self-studies and freelance work: of course, you can find free Wi-Fi here.
Junggrens Café is located at Avenyn (the biggest parade avenue in Gothenburg that also are the biggest shopping district in the city) and has been there for over a hundred years. If you want to enjoy traditional fika this is the place for you. Or if you want to take a break in the shopping in some of the stores at Avenyn.
A hipster cafe with great coffee and a spacious area (if you want to work or stay there for a long time). We haven't tried their breakfast yet but we think the breakfast looks very yummy at Kafé Magasinet.
In Gothenburg you can find a botanic garden and there is also the cafe Botaniska paviljongen located. We recommend that you visit the botanic garden in the summer and if the weather is good it's a fantastic experience enjoying a fika outside at Botaniska paviljongen. One of the most beautiful places to enjoy a coffee in Gothenburg.
A White-Guide nominated cafe (we have written about White Guide in the end of this entry) with a nice coffee and a nice interior.
A high-class confectionery with really good pastries. The pastries almost look like works of art.
How does that sounds with coffee beans from a micro brewery and raw food-pastries? Of course, you can also find ordinary non-raw food pastries at Matería. A cozy cafe with a modern thinking.
