Snickarbacken 7

Unfortunately, Snickarbacken 7 is permanently closed.

Despite being permanently closed, Snickarbacken deserves to be mentioned here, since its a place very close to my heart.

Snickarbacken was my favorite café for many years, and it has a lot of history for me. The first time I went there was in 2014. A few years later, while waiting for my coffee, I met the love of my life. In a hidden alley perpendicular to Birger Jarlsgatan, Snickarbacken was located in a former stable that was built in the late 1800’s. My office used to be right by the corner, so I spent many lunches there. One day, when I was in the line to order a coffee, the guy behind the coffee machine and I looked at each other. Since then, we call it love at first sight.

I spent many more lunches, breakfasts and evenings there. Obsessing over him and getting to know him. Today that guy and I are engaged and we have a daughter together. Life can be crazy like that, and this place will always be special to us.

Away from the hustle and bustle of the city you’ll find the old studio of Swedish sculptor Carl Eldh.


From the same owners of Kaffeverket and Stora Bageriet, Gast is another hidden gem.
