Tucked away behind Malmöhus, the castle of Malmö, is a cafe-restaurant with an extensive menu and a great outdoor dining area perfect for a warm summer day. Slottsträdgårdens Cafe is ideally located in the backyard of the fortress and just beyond it is Slottsparken, the city’s largest park that spawns all the way to Old Town.
The cafe offers Swedish delicacies such as smoked salmon and potatoes, salmon smörgås, and traditional Swedish cinnamon buns and home roasted coffee. The menu is extensive despite the small size of the place and is a great choice if you want to stop for lunch, have a quick fika, or just grab a cold beer.
The location is ideal as it is tucked away in the castle’s backyard and is invisible from any of the streets. A short walk through the gardens from the castle will lead you to an opening and the cafe spreads around engulfed in flowers and trees. It is an ideal pit stop if one is walking around the city as you can stop for a bite before pushing on.
The prices are moderate and the service is excellent with the food being served outdoors by the waiting staff. The cafe also features a small enclosure which can be reserved for events like a wedding or a small family gathering.
Slottsträdgårdens Cafe has the fine taste of the city and makes a bright summer day better with its menu.
