Stepping into this café for a cup of coffee will bring you back in time. You will travel back more than 60 years to Stockholm of 1954 when Konditori Valand first opened.
Until only a couple of years ago, the original owners were still running what has become an institution in neighborhood Vasastan. Now their daughter-in-law is in charge, having only made some slight changes like offering ice cream. A dish-washing machine has reportedly been introduced behind the scenes as well as internet.
But pretty much the same interior that was purchased at the start remains to this day. This is an outstanding achievement considering how fast things change around us all the time.
Forget getting your name on a cup or a macchiato or any other type of coffee other than regular brewed coffee, for that matter. No blaring background music will disturb your reading a book or talking to friends.
