Top 5 burgers in Stockholm

The best burgers in Stockholm!

Hi, Fabian here.

Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen the burger hype grow stronger and stronger worldwide, and Stockholm is no exception. If you’re looking for a great burger while in Stockholm, there are plenty of places that won’t disappoint you. I always order a classic cheeseburger, because if you can’t make something as simple as that taste good then it doesn’t matter how many creative options you have the menu. This is my top 5 list of burgers in Stockholm.

Flippin’ Burgers

Observatoriegatan 8, Stockholm
Flippin’ is the starter of the Swedish burger hype—and the hype is real. For me, they still hold the crown of the best burger in Stockholm. Maybe it’s because they haven’t expanded like their competitions have. They have however opened up other restaurants, but with different concepts, such as Lådan and Dogfood. Flippin’ have been running the show since its birth, and the king is not dead yet—this year they declared that they’re going to work with even better ingredients from local suppliers. For vegetarian they have a crispy bean-based option.

Franky’s famous burgers

Tegnérgatan 16, Stockholm
This little gem was first located in a small kiosk outside of Hard Rock Café but moved to Tegnérgatan in 2017. They only have a few seats, so get here early if you want to grab a spot. Unfortunately, they don’t have a meat-free option yet, but we can only hope it’s as tasty as the rest of the menu when they do. With their super tasty burgers (order Franky’s favorite, off the menu) at great prices, this is still one of the best-kept burger secrets in Stockholm.

Barrels – burger and beer

Stora Nygatan 20 – Smålandsgatan 22 – Bysistorget

Barrels first opened up in Gamla Stan (Old Town) but have now spread to the city and will open a restaurant in Södermalm any day now.

They have several different tasty craft burgers on the menu, including a veggie option that is really good. The concept is nicely composed and well executed all the way throughout the experience, including the interior. If you’re looking for a place to eat and have a few beers with your friends, then you should definitely check out Barrels. Don’t forget to check out their monthly burger.

Bastard Burger

Rehnsgatan 22
Hailing from Luleå, Bastards Burgers is the king of the north when it comes to burgers. They conquered Norrland before making their way down to Stockholm, and the success is withstanding. The reviews have been great from the start, and even though I wasn’t impressed the first time I visited their joint in Vasastan, I’m glad to call myself a Bastard now. A plus is their selection of vegetarian or vegan options.

Phil’s Burger

Phil’s Burger is the probably the gourmet burger chain that has been growing the most over the last couple of years. They now have eight restaurants spread out in Stockholm, Uppsala and Eskilstuna, and rumor has it that they are planning to add more locations to their list quite soon.

Funky Chicken food truck

If you happen to be in the same area as Funky Chicken’s food truck, you better hurry up and get in line before they sell out. Their simple and delicious burgers with smashed patties are almost too good to be true, so if you get there in time you better get yourself a triple cheeseburger. You won’t regret it. You’re most likely to find them in Nacka Strand or at Hornstull’s Market on the weekends.

Top 5 cafés for vegans in Stockholm

Stockholm is a plant-based fika heaven

Hi, Amanda here.

Today, we’re starting something new on the blog. From now on, we’re going to put together posts containing our favorites within a certain theme every now and then. And what better way to start it off than with vegan cafés in Stockholm?  Since I am a vegetarian that doesn’t drink coffee,  my list of go-to cafés is slightly different than Fabian’s. I like nutritious, healthy and vegan food, and after a few years in Stockholm, I have found the places for me. So if you’re visiting Stockholm, here are my top five vegan cafés:

Greasy Spoon

Södermalm & Vasastan
This is more of the place for brunch after a night out, but you can still drop by for a fika. The brunch is fantastic and has a variety of vegan options on the menu. I would certainly recommend the buckwheat pancakes or the avocado toast. They don’t take reservations, so expect to wait for 30–60 mins for a table. Their Södermalm location is a lot cozier and authentic, but the one in Vasastan is bigger better suited for those who want to show off on the gram.

Vegan pancakes at Greasy Spoon

Mahalo Hälsocafét

Södermalm & Vasastan
A 100% vegan café with everything from wraps, pancakes and raw food desserts. My absolute favorite is the acai bowl loco or the pancakes. And the raw food desserts… and the sweet potato fries… the list can actually be quite long.  This is perfect for both breakfast and lunch but beware of the long line of people trying to get through the door. Read our post about it here.

Gast

Vasastan
A really cozy and vegan-friendly cafe with amazing porridge and almond butter! Beautiful interiors and a nice selection of books and magazines to read while enjoying a nice breakfast. You want something to drink? Try the turmeric latte. Read our post about it here.

Porridge at Gast

Pom & Flora

Södermalm & Vasastan
Not everything is a 100% vegan at the hip and always crowded Pom & Flora, but they still offer plenty of vegan and vegetarian options on their menu. Just remember that their Södermalm location is not open during the weekends.

Sthlm Raw

Hornstull in Södermalm
This vegan raw food café in hipstery  Hornstull offers a wide variety of tasty, nutritious cakes and desserts. You could also indulge in some cold-pressed juices, smoothies, chia pudding and other vegan snacks.

Bonus tip: oat milk!

It is also worth mentioning that Johan & Nyström has some of the best matcha lattes in town. So if you’re in the mood for a hot beverage I would definitely recommend this place. And if you haven’t tried oat milk (instead of soy or almond milk) give it a try! You can get it at most places and it makes the even the vegan lattes extra creamy. Yum!
