Had a classic 'fika' (coffee and cake) with some friends in Café Magnifik. Coffee tasted great, so did the typical seasonal bun (semla with whipped cream - normally eaten in February) as well as the julmust (a non-alcoholic Christmas drink), just like my friend's Budapest cake and the third person's lentil soup.
Apart from soups and cakes, they also serve salads and sandwiches etc. And you can order things for take away too.
All very good, free wifi and relaxed atmosphere. Will come back for sure.

After 10 days of very Swedish, army barracks, food, the end of exercise dinner for our small multinational group (8 diners) took us to this "French" restaurant with a Danish owner/chef. It is very central, in a pedestrianised shopping street, and a only short walk from the main/only hotel in town.
I got there early and had time to spot a few bottles standing around of what turned out to be a very good Pinot Noir/Grenache (red wine) which was not on the wine list as they had so little left. And was then impressed that they had a wine fridge set at ideal red wine temperature (the restaurant itself was quite warm). So the evening started very well for me.
Our long table with bench/banquette seats on one side was prettily laid with red and white check napkins and lots of candles. The menu was on small handheld blackboard slates and the chef came out of the adjacent open kitchen to help translate from the Swedish. There was a small number of dishes (changed regularly), meat and fish, all basically French in name but each with a definite Scandinavian twist. One cod dish was served with a mashed potato with smoked cod mixed in to it. I've never seen that in France. Rosti and saurkraut were garnishes for other dishes.
We settled in over complimentary olives and tapenade with toast while we all selected and ordered.
I started with snails (partly because I loved the Swedish name - "sniglar") and they came unshelled in a lucious, pleasantly slightly tart, creamy sauce on a bed of greens (spinach?), with very good bread to mop it all up. Unexpected and delicious. One colleague opined that snails have no flavour on their own; we disproved that in this case, but the mix with the sauce was a case of 2+2 =5.
My main course was two parts of duck, one the breast (magret) which was delightfully cut up and cleverly reassembled, and a gorgeous red berry based sauce (which I thought showed the Danish influence) with mashed potatoes and salad garnish. The beef/steak eaters around me seemed very happy also.
I carried on with the pinot noir as my only pudding, but those who had the creme brulee raved about it,
The service was good and very efficient in dealing with a bunch of assorted foreigners who ordered different things and wanted separate bills, the waitress/server was very pleasant, the atmosphere was great and the food was really remarkably well presented (and fascinating to watch it being cooked, one man and many small copper saucepans). We had a great time.
It was not cheap but then it is Sweden, and by the time we paid our respective bills we were past caring.
It is not an authentic French restaurant but is none the worse for that. The fusion would perhaps make it more attractive to locals (it was fairly busy even mid week) and I hope it prospers, as we may be back next year.

This restaurant and café is situated in an old beautiful building just one block away from the main square in the town of Enköping. All the food that is served is free from gluten. This might sound boring for those who are not allergic to...MoreTack för den fina recensionen, vi ligger dock i Enköping!

After a long day of travelling (with, in my case, a delayed flight and a very sore back from being literally jammed immovably into an economy class seat) and little to eat all day, the last thing we needed was to find the Hotel Park Astoria's restaurant not open on a cold Sunday night. My three colleagues and I thus crossed the road to this nearby pizzaria, the nearest place to which I could hobble, in search of fuel and a drink. My mood was not improved to find it half full of one large noisy party, the only menu being written in Swedish on a blackboard on the wall, where I had to stand painfully and have it slowly translated by our Swedish colleagues, and then the need to queue up and order from the counter, And I don't even care that much for pizza, so "grumpy" barely covered it by the time I finally got to a table and collapsed into a chair.
I had selected a lasagna, one of a handful of alternative pasta dishes, and to my delight it was extremely tasty, had a very cheesy topping, was quite a large helping and came with a very pleasant mixed salad. My three colleagues had pizzas (two capriosas and a vegetarian), and were all very pleased with them. These did look tasty, a nice thin and rather crispy base and even I might try one next time, although I'd avoid some of the weirder toppings. One colleague had cut off and discarded the edges of his and I nibbled my way through all these (cheesy dough!) morsels with some relish during our second round of drinks.
I drank a very nice local bottled lager which had as much flavour as many British beers (ales), much better than the popular "household name" lagers one finds around the world.
The ambience proved quite pleasant, the presentation was good and the service was fairly quick, given that the pizzas were freshly cooked to order.
I returned to my hotel and welcome bed much restored in both energy and spirits. I'd recommend this place, and not just when it seems the only option.

If you are looking for a place to enjoy a "fika" (coffee and cake) in an atmospheric and traditional Swedish setting then this is the place to go. The house is an old wooden building with low ceiling which is beautifully decorated. It looks small at first but you have rooms on each side of the counter as well as a cosy courtyard and another room in the back (which I have never been in).
They sell the traditional Swedish cakes and sandwiches, like blueberry crumble pie, cinnamon bun (kanelbulle), shrimp Sandwich and so many other things. I always go here when in town.
There are child seats here too. If you come in a wheel chair it might be a bit tight, but I am pretty sure that the staff will assist to make it possible.

Visit this cafe if you are after a light lunch (or a normal coffee and cake). They serve salads, (cold) noodles and sandwiches as well as the usual cafe stuff. I had a classic prawn salad and the others enjoyed a caesar salad and cold noodles with chicken. All tasted fresh and good.
The decor colour is not really my style, but it works and the furniture makes it cosy.

The food was delicious and the atmosphere very nice.
I went there on a summer evening so you know here in Sweden there's sunlight untill almost midnight, so it was nice to come in and have a place with dimmed lights and calmed ambient.
Interesting in the way that you order your food through and app and then you get the bill there sent to you, so no confusions at the time of paying if you go in a group!
Worth the visit!

I have got take-away meals from Saby Jai a couple of times and been very happy. They let you choose between Thai food Thai style or European style. If you choose Thai style you get it as nice as you get it in any restaurant in Thailand that has not been adapted to please foreign tourists that only like mild tastes. The restaurant part looks nice but I have not tried it - yet.
