Every weekend, I see how people do great breakfasts on social media and wonder how they have energy to put everything nicely etc. Then I remembered that I made french toast with fresh berries yesterday too 😂
The atmosphere is very cozy and bright, but it's a lot of people and you have to fight(?) to get any place to sit. It was very loud when we were there.
Fikawise, not that amazing place. They seem to have really nice breakfast/lunch menu though. The coffee was well brewed using V60, but the beans of my choice (Kappa something) had much sourness with citrus tones. The croissant was good with right crunchy texture on outside and soft inside but didn't have as much flavour. (I still want more saltiness)
Lemon meringue tart was also not remarkable, even though it was cute. Very sweet and also very sharp sourness. The meringue texture was way too airy for my preference.
I just got a game called "What do you meme" which is basically card against humanity, but with memes instead! It will be sooo fun! 😂
It is a small place. The interiors are a bit boring, but background music was chill instrumental which was nice. But as it is small, it is bothering to hear dishing machine work all the time.
She seem harsch in the beginning due to non-perfect swedish, but the more I talked to her, the more I realized her kindness.
Cappuccino was light and foamy. Not superstrong coffee flavour at the end - but gentle.
Croissant was as if it contained much less butter than what it was supposed to be. Somehow compact and more hard on the outside than crunchy.
Chemex was with some kind of coffeebean I don't remember, but it was lighter one with fruity tones. Too much of sourness than my preference. You can choose between 2 coffee beans for Chemex.
Mixed feelings about my roomie moving out soon.. Well, actually, it doesn't feel real yet. I guess it will come to me when she actually moved out. One thing I'm sure is that with both of our schedule, we won't be able meet as often 🙁 Well, we had a good time for 2,5 years!
A typical burger/steakhouse atmosphere with brownisch interior and some witty words on the walls
Le burger - Soft and fluffy bun with good meat&bun ratio. It is filling the stomach more than expected. The patties were juicy and well spiced (especially coming to pepper), but was slightly more compact than optimal (?). The toppings were not superexciting, but altogether became juicy&fatty.
Sweet potato fries topped with chili, coriander, parmesan and sourcream were nice. The fries were warm and crispy, but the toppings didn't add much flavour. Good with chili mayo.
Strawberry milkshake were creamy, and tasted as if they used frozen strawberries. Not special.
This place is somewhere I never thought of having fika, but they have a lot of sweets to offer and had to give it a try!
Also, I got birthday present & graduation gift from @hin.pang @maysamnatalie @camillaavu which I didn't expect!! 💕 Thank you once again!! Atmosphere: 🍩🍩🍩🍩
Cozy and somwhat luxury atmosphere. As it is a mixture of restaurant, bar and café, it is not the typical cozy café atmosphere. Slightly too loud music.
The cappuccino was okay, not much coffee flavour through all the foam, but at least the foam was silky.
The pistaccio pannacotta with raspberry jelly on top was very bad. Yes, you could taste the raspberry and pistaccio (very little pistacchio). It wad dense, fatty and some parts too dry. Only edible in the middle (still not good). The raspberry jelly on top was so dense that it was hard to get with the spoon.
Finally having time to upload my last picture before the trip to budapest! (I have so much more for after 😂) This morning I overslept.. prepared myself in 5min, took a taxi and had to get breakfast at the airport.
Modern and fresh. Kinda like more artistic convenient store isch. Everything here looked very fresh.
Especially swedish airports have waaay to expensive food compared to what you get. This normal sandwich filled with ham, cheese, tomato, lettuce and mayo was 83kr.. Not bigger than usual. Standard flavour, not dry or any wrong with this.
The latte was like typical convenient store flavour. Not too sour or bitter - but absolutely not any outstanding things. Foamy cream. Not too light or dense.
Don't be despresso, drink espresso! 😂☕ Exactly what I needed when heading for Stockholm for couple of weeks ago with all the delays and canceled trains!
I know it's a little place, but last times I've been here, it has been too crowded to sit down and drink. I love to sit and stare at new coffees, but harder to do it nowdays. I'm happy for them that they have more people though!
It seems like the owner recognizes all his guests?? He commended that it was my first takeaway (which it is) 😮
I had a mocha latte - they melt chocolate chips in hot milk and pour over coffee. I liked it even though I didn't feel the typical coffee flavour. It tastes mostly like hot chocolate (a good one), but with deeper flavour with coffee.
Created a new tag for me as my posts started to be too much for me to handle 😂 I use my insta as a fooddiary and sometimes search for things myself. So new tag system will be #AJcityfoodtype , e.g. this will be #AJstockholmfika
It could be quite cozy if it was not supercrowded. The noise level is pretty high due to that. The tables are close enough to hear conversations tho!
There's one girl that seems to ve very nonchalant and sick of all people coming.. but other people are ok. Also, if you order a bevarage that will take time, they tell you that they will say the name when done (like starbucks), but no one can hear them due to noises and you have to go back and forth to be sure.
The red velvet croissant seemed to be exciting. It barely tastes red velvet except crumbles on top. Creme cheese frosting inside was nice, but not preferable if you want "normal" croissant. Very crunchy. Messy to eat.
Peach melba was very fruity with strawberry & peachmousse. Very soft. Fresh flavour and less sweet.
Sticky bun was nice. Slightly dry on outside, but dense inside with all syrup and nuts on top was 👌
