The 5 best coffee shops

1) Johan & Nyström

In 2004 Johan & Nyström opened and since then, they have transformed Sweden as a coffee-drinking nation. With their high-quality, gently-roasted and fairtrade coffees and teas they have raised consumer awareness by organising courses and selling their products and equipment in several cafes and coffee bars.

2) Espresso Sosta Bar

Espresso Sosta Bar is a tiny coffee bar that attracts espresso enthusiasts, who order their favourite hot drink from the smartlydressed baristas behind the counter full of Italian panini, cannoli and biscotti. Here you drink your coffee (well, espresso really) quickly and straight up. The whole procedure takes just a few minutes.

4) Mellqvist Kaffebar

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 collaborate with the Gothenburg-based roastery Da Matteo and you can always buy beans too. The founder also runs Kafé Esaias, another great coffee stop, just a 10-minute walk from here.
