There are countless places around Malmö offering brunch buffets on Sundays, and a few on Saturdays, but I think none of them comes close to beating Café Ceder’s value-for-money brunch. The fantastic selection of desserts always competes with the main dishes for my stomach’s attention – so I recommend to pace yourself and save room in order to end the brunch with a few sweet treats.
It’s still priced under 150 SEK rather than the over 200 SEK price at most other places with half-decent brunches, and its brunch is open both Saturdays and Sundays. I especially like the dishes which have a Lebanese twist to them that Café Ceder offers.
I like going there on a Saturday or Sunday with a newspaper and taking my time to eat the buffet with a nice coffee. Even when I try to pace myself by taking a smaller dessert plate for all the food, I rarely have room for dessert anyway.
This gem is in the Värnhem area of Malmö, an area somewhat lacking in cultural or touristic points of interest – so visiting Café Ceder is great excuse to discover this part of the city anyway. Keep in mind that I think this area would otherwise only be interesting to two kinds of enthusiasts – those who are into abandoned shopping malls like the monstrosity that Entré is, or those who like people watching and want to see Malmö’s own ‘buffet’ of dodgy characters with varying degrees of soberness who hang around the Värnhemstorget square.
