Mellqvist Kaffebar is always at the top of the list when Stockholmers are asked to rate their favourite cafes. Everyone who steps through the door of this crowded, cosy place is given the same warm welcome as the regulars. On summer days, the seats along the brick wall are the perfect spot for people-watching.

5) Kafé Orion

Kafé Orion proves that size doesn’t matter. This tiny coffee bar with green walls serves espresso-based beverages and filter coffee. They work with the Gothenburg-based roastery Da Matteo and you can buy beans here too. Its location at Norrtullsgatan is especially lovely during summertime when the quarter turns into a pedestrian zone.
