Brunch is a meal for going out with friends, for those mornings when you wake up with nothing to do (what are those like? Tell me!), for when you reserve a little time to spend by yourself or with those you love over good food and hot coffee.
Stockholm’s excellent cafe culture doesn’t stop at coffee; they have a huge range of brunch options. Whether you’re looking for something luxurious, an all-you-can-eat buffet, or something cheap but still delicious, there’s a place in Stockholm for you.
Here’s where to find the best brunch in Stockholm, at all price points:
Cheap Brunch in Stockholm
For when you just want something simple and tasty, Kaffebar in Södermalm is the answer. A toasted sandwich, egg, juice, and coffee will run you 105 SEK, with the addition of yoghurt for 130 SEK. This place is super hip and fills up fast, especially on weekends, so stake out your spot early. For those interested, this was a favorite spot of Stieg Larsson as he wrote The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Yes to diner breakfasts! The Greasy Spoon is a typical American-style diner with great breakfast and brunch food served all day. They have a range of eggs dishes, pancakes, smashed avocado, and just about anything else you’re craving. Both locations get very busy on weekends and operate on a waiting-list system, so get there early! Evenings and weekdays are more calm.
113 48 Stockholm
The original hipster cafe location in uber-cool Sodermalm, il caffe has stretched to locations across the city and serves up great coffee, delicious cardamon buns, and a selection of inexpensive but tasty plates that are perfect for breakfast, brunch, or lunch. A good spot to go with pals, or hang out by yourself with a good book for a few hours.

Mid-Priced Brunch in Stockholm
Pom & Flora
The ultimate brunch spot in Stockholm, Pom & Flora never fails to deliver with their creative, yet comforting and delicious menu. From all-you-can-pour coffee to their flavourful dishes such as their breakfast bowls and banana bread with coconut and almonds smothered in peanut butter (our mouths are watering too), there’s always something new to try. The vibe is relaxed and cheerful; don’t miss this one!
Restaurang Nytorget 6
In the heart of uber-cool Södermalm, you’ll find the gem of Nytorget 6. With a focus on fresh ingredients and a Swedish-meets-the-world menu, there’s something for everyone here. The interior is relaxed with a bit of French glamor to it; you’ll definitely feel like you’re treating yourself, but the prices are reasonable. Brunch is served from 10 – 4 on weekends only, and it gets busy so try to book ahead. We recommend the Egg Royale, baked eggs with smoked salmon, and the wild strawberries with cream (when they’re in season). For those with a serious sweet tooth, you won’t want to miss their croissant filled with hazelnut creme, vanilla ice cream, and roasted almonds; it’s outrageously good!
STHLM Brunch Club
Exactly as the name says: they’re all about brunch. Breafakst and brunch foods are served all day, including bagels with cream cheese, pancakes, eggs benedict, and porridge. They also do a selection of “freakshakes,” milkshakes with tons of items piled on top to make for a sugar rush like you’ve never felt before. There are plenty of vegan and gluten free options here, and please note that the restaurant is cash free, so bring your card.
This restaurant and deli is worth a visit regardless of whether you’re in the mood for brunch, but their brunch menu is a good one. It’s served Saturdays & Sundays only from 11:30 am – 3:30 pm. Grab a plate of oysters to start, as well as one of the breakfast cocktails (a breakfast martini? Yes please!), then dive into plates like huevos rancheros, or a cheese omelette.
Brunch is only served on Saturdays, but it’s a yummy one, full of hearty items like steak & eggs and fish tacos. This restaurant has a range of Mexican dishes, as well as American-style brunch items like pancakes. Big portions, good prices, and a chilled out atmosphere.
Luxurious Brunch in Stockholm
NOI at Nobis hotel
This popular buffet brunch at the fancy Nobis Hotel is 245 SEK for non-hotel guests at 189 for hotel guests. It includes bottomless coffee or tea drinks, omelettes and other egg dishes, and mountains of other choices from breads to yoghurts to fruit to hot dishes. Sometimes you just gotta go for the buffet!
This southern European-meets-Swedish restaurant has a menu full of not only French but also Greek and Spanish flavors; cheerful, simple, and delicious. They serve dinner daily, lunch and dinner on Saturdays, and brunch on Sundays from 12 – 5 pm. The brunch menu is the same as their dinner menu, and includes a dish of the day. With a friendly atmosphere and flavourful, generous portions, this is a great late-brunch-after-a-long-morning kinda spot.
This Nordic-style bistro is situated right on the water, with a gorgeous view and lovely indoor or outdoor seating. The menu changes seasonally, but be prepared for Nordic flavors slipped into comforting, tasty dishes. Definitely try one of the fish or mussel dishes, as well as their delightful homemade sodas. Brunch is only served on Saturday and Sunday, 12 – 4 pm.
Veranda at the Grand Hotel
Veranda’s hours might run a little early – that’s almost breakfast territory – but if you’re in the mood for brunch on the early side, this will definitely do the trick. Located in the luxurious, old-fashioned Grand Hotel, Veranda serves a buffet breakfast that’ll put most others to shame. Enjoy a view of the waterfront and Royal Palace as you sip your espresso drink. The buffet is 355 SEK for adults, 160 SEK for children (6 – 12 years old).
