Uggla Kaffebar – The owls are not what they seem

This small café is located in Sankt Knuts torg which could be described as a backyard in the middle of the city surrounded by nice cafes, bars and restaurants. Around this square, Uggla Kaffebar is my favourite spot for a cuppa coffee, either to sit down in the terrace area or for takeaway. I mostly come here for coffee, but they also serve a changing selection of pastries and buns (try a traditional Swedish cinnamon bun if they have it in the display!) – so no need to worry about meeting your daily calorie intake.

On the ground level, the café looks like a tiny corner shop, with just a  couple of seats by the window. Downstairs you can find more seating space, with a completely different ambiance. The indoor decoration of the café gives me instant Twin Peaks vibes due to the dozens of owl decorations and gloomy lighting. And what’s the thing with all the owls, you might wonder? It’s quite self-explanatory – uggla means owl in Swedish. According to Uggla Kaffebar’s website, originally an owl decoration was put on the rooftop of the café to scare away pigeons, and eventually the amount of owl decorations multiplied when customers started donating their own owl decorations they had found second-hand or in their home.
