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.

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.

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!


Svenska: Här kommer Amandas fem favoritcaféer i Stockholm. Det de har gemensamt är att alla har veganska alternativ och maten eller fikan smakar otroligt bra! Det spelar ingen roll om du är vegetarian/vegan eller äter allt – dessa caféer har något för alla!

Eatnam – Vietnamese street food

Vasastan goes Saigon

What happens when you put Vietnamese street food in a bistro setting in Stockholm? The answer spells Eatnam—a really chill little corner restaurant where the food is nice and spicy, the staff friendly and helpful, and the vibes are just on point.

Both of us are like really into Asian food, but we don’t eat it nearly as often as we like or should. We often end up freestyling some tofu wok in our own kitchen, or steaming a few frozen bao buns from our local Asian supermarket and filling them with all the good stuff we can think of. However, every now and then, we treat ourselves by going to someone who actually knows how it’s supposed to taste. After some Christmas shopping in central Stockholm, we ended up taking the green line up to Odenplan to indulge in crispy spring rolls and homemade lemonade while going to town on a big bowl of noodles with pork and tofu.

At Eatnam, they share with their own favorite dishes their grandmother cooked in the southern parts of Saigon. Fresh herbs, fish sauce, noodles, and broths are recurring ingredients in everything on their menu, which is filled with dishes such as Pho (noodle soup), Goi coun (fresh spring rolls) and bun ba xao (noodle salad). From what we’ve heard, seasoning your food, especially your Pho, is a common thing in Vietnam. Therefore, sriracha sauce, soy sauce, limes and fish sauce are always close to hand.

This is not really the place to go to if you’re going out for dinner, but it’s a great spot if you’re looking for a nice lunch or a casual and tasty meal after work on a Thursday.

Vegetarian friendly

You don’t have to be a carnivore to enjoy a meal at Eatnam. And if you’re not sure on what to order, just ask the staff for recommendations and they’ll help you out.

Svenska: Eatnam är en liten bit av Saigon i Vasastan. Krispiga vårrullar, goda nudelsoppor och skönt häng i bistromiljö gör den här vietnamesiska pärlan väl värd ett besök.
