A Guide to the Best Brunch in Malmö

In Malmö and in need of the best brunch in town? After a week of hard work, nothing is quite as appetizing as the creamy smell of cheese, the faint crunch of freshly baked sourdough, and a freshly squeezed juice on a tray ready to be devoured alongside a hot cup of coffee.

Sweden’s third largest city is known for its multicultural gastronomical experiences. The vibrant city bursts with restaurants and cafés from all over the world; the offering is surprisingly large for its mere 300,000 inhabitants. Of course, it’s a quick 30 minutes between Copenhagen and Malmö, so even those from outside the city can easily enjoy its many gems.

Here are the best places for brunch in Malmö:

Kärleksgatan 3

The popular brunch spot, Kärleksgatan 3, never fails to surprise. They have a range of innovative salads, lovely things on toast, sandwiches, and delicious bread goods. Available until 11 am, Kärleksgatan 3’s most popular brunch option is Frukostpaket (The Breakfast Package). It comes with avocado on rye bread, a side of yogurt with berries, and a freshly pressed juice, all for just 115 SEK. The café also has a good selection of gluten free and vegetarian choices.

As suggested by the pun-tastic name, Scandwich is the place to go if you’re looking to eat a sandwich like no other. The bread creations bear some similarities to the Danish “smørrebørd” (open face sandwiches). Scandwich is fully focused on quality and only has three items on its menu – a sandwich with meat, a vegetarian sandwich, and a vegan option. Scandwich has two locations, one in Malmö and one in Stockholm, both of which are beloved by locals.

Atrium Kaffebar

On a quiet side street off of the busy Regementsgatan, you’ll find Atrium Kaffebar. It’s the ultimate hipster brunch spot in Malmö, serving delicious and flavorful dishes and cakes. The menu is small but has everything you’re looking for in a weekend brunch; smashed avocado on toast, egg dishes, muesli bowls, and a range of colorful salads with refreshing vegetables. We recommend the Eggs Benedict – poached eggs with a choice of either smoked salmon or ham on freshly baked bread. Atrium has lovely seating inside and out; perfect to enjoy all year around.

Far i Hatten is best known for its wood-fired pizzas and seasonal dishes, but it’s also worth checking out for the brunch menu. The restaurant/café is located in the middle of Folkets Park in a cozy cottage built in 1894 and surrounded by a large garden. The brunch is served between 11 am and 2 pm on Saturdays and consists of a mainly vegetarian buffet. As this is a very popular spot, we recommend booking for brunch (or any other meal).

Malmö Saluhall

Saluhallen is one of Malmö’s trendiest food destinations. The food market is conveniently located a short ten minute walk from the central station and is frequently enjoyed by both locals and tourists. It has a variety of food choices; you can find Påris poké bar, sandwiches from all over the world at Poms, and aromatic baked goods from St. Jakobs Stenugnsbageri, among many other options. For a less traditional brunch, we recommend trying Hedvigsdal’s wood-fired pizzas; their delicious toppings are grown in their very own vegetable garden.
