Are you looking for cafés and restaurants in Stockholm that are family friendly? Or somewhere to meet your girlfriends for fika that is calming for both mother and baby? Your Living City provides you with the list of the most child-friendly eating places in town.
For a tourist, Stockholm exudes a very modern, urban environment, and it’s easy to assume that there’s little or no tolerance for wild little things that cling to our legs and climb under the tables. This however, would be a mistake; even the chicest joints will have a barnstol, or high chair, for your little one although it might be trickier to get your stroller through the door.
Finding a good café that you can enjoy with your children is one of the most important first steps when you arrive in a new city with kids in tow. Sometimes it’s like looking for a needle in a hay stack but luckily, we at Your Living City are great needle finders.
And, if you frequent a popular or charming café in your neighborhood, be sure to share it with our readers below!
Rosendal’s Garden is an open garden, with the main purpose of presenting bio-dynamic (organic) garden cultivation to the general public. Our plots and greenhouses yield a wide selection of bio-dynamically grown vegetables, flowers, herbs and pot-plants, most of it sold in the Plant Shop or the Garden Shop, or used for cooking in the café. Stroll or bike to this waterhole, see their nice website for more info -don’t miss all the courses they run! In the café, you won’t be disappointed, everything from cookies to light lunched, using only organically grown ingredients. But you can also bring your own picnic and meet up with friends under the apple trees! Don’t forget to buy some plants for the balcony or garden, and that unique present you needed for your mother-in law! The kids will love the open fields and nearby playground, the place is like a maze with goodies for everyone!

Now this is one of the best places to go in the summer in Stockholm, but it is still open all year round! A neat oasis and one of a kind environment (history dating back to early 17th century). Meet up your best friends for fika or a glass of wine and afterwards take a stroll around Djurgården.. Food is simply fantastic but not super cheap. A must visit at some point!

This is a café that has existed quite for some time. But is very updated and modern. They have a very fresh menu with “husmanskost”, soup, salads etc. On weekends they have a brunch that is available for all customers, small and big! They have a small toy box for children to play with as well. In summer time I can imagine it is great to sit outside in the sun.
