Mellqvist Kaffebar 2

Mellqvist Kaffebar is a small and cosy neighbourhood café on one of the main streets of Södermalm, Stockholm’s coolest district. It is a great place to indulge in the Swedish tradition of fika, taking a break to drink coffee and eat something sweet with a friend.

In addition to the coffee, which is smooth and mellow, people come here for the delicious cardamom buns (kardemummabullar in Swedish), a Swedish fika staple. The weekend brunch is also popular, but there is no real menu – don’t hesitate to ask at the counter.

Once you have grabbed your coffee and bun (and maybe one of the boiled eggs on the side) grab a stool – or better, an outside table if the weather is nice. Then open your copy of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: besides being one of Stieg Larsson’s favourite places (the writer used to work just above it and is said to have written several pages there) Mellqvist Kaffebar is the location of the book’s final scene.

Judging from the creative types and laptops around, it would appear the literary aura of this café continues.
