Café tradition

Food & Drink / Shopping

During the early 1900th century, there were several coffee houses set up at a suitable walking distance from the seaside resort. They chose to place them in scenic surroundings, preferably with the most magnificent views of the sea. The national romance flourished and the Scandinavian summer idyll was to be fully enjoyed.

The richest of the area's cafés is Solbacken, which is located along the Italian road. Waffles from a secret recipe are served here, which are enjoyed in white garden furniture on terraces overlooking the sea. If Solbacken's season has not started, you can have waffles for coffee at Pensionat Neptun, Sigfridsgården or at the small kiosk in Kattvik harbor. 

"I like the café on Kanelen in Boarp because they have a fun mojäng on the lawn outside"

Make your own café tour around the Bjäre Peninsula. Sit down for a conversation and a little pleasant company or find a café in the country such as the Orangeriet Bäckdalens Handelsträdgård in Hallavara. In Hallavara there are a lot of flowers, herbs, organic, homemade bread and it's really really nice!

Then have a coffee in the yard at Birgit Nilsson's home in Stallcaféet. Here you sit in the tastefully and carefully renovated old stalls and look out through the stable windows at the landscape around Svenstad. Feel free to try the Aida cake or the special Birgit Nilsson pastry that is only served in connection with her birthday on 17 May.
