Ruby Tuesday - at Lisa's Café & Homebakery

IMG_9504

In the southern parts of inner city Stockholm you'll find Lisa's Café & Homebakery. A smallish, no frills café that celebrates regular coffee, friendly service and very tasty breads, cakes and buns. Lisa herself bakes everything that's served and the mood in the morning guides her in the kitchen.

This homely, cosy place with red checked tablecloths likes to show off its guests, from all walks of life and different ages, on the walls.

Different sandwiches are made on order and you help yourself to coffee, tea, buns, cakes and cookies at the self serving counter. When you're full, you pay.

This best lenten bun award winning gem of an unpretentious café is open Mon-Sat 6.30 - 15.00, it's frequented by haunters as well as casual drop ins. The place is crowded yet peaceful and no prams allowed. Lisa's Café & Homebakery is situated at Skånegatan 68, Stockholm - and most definitely worth a visit. Or more.

Nice place for having breakfast....

Pia K said...

Ha, ha, well if you're seated near the door and don't plan to revisit, maybe that's an option, Dora...;)

Thanks for stopping by, Rambling Woods.

Indeed it is, tr3nta, if I lived nearby I would probably be a regular...

Very homey. I could see myself stopping by regularly for a breakfast :o)

It sounds like it would be a favorite place of mine, for sure! Happy RT!

Kay said...

What a great looking place! I am so jealous!

Is that a “no baby buggies” sign in the first photo? Because that rocks. I want one of those for my living room.

Olga said...

What an adorable place! And the food looks wonderful...good thing it's almost lunch here.

Pia K said...

Oh I'm sure it would be a great place to spend a day eating and reading a good book, Yen, I'm glad I don't live nearby come to think of it...;)

Ivanhoe - definitely a neat breakfast place, the sandwich I had was delicious in its simplicity and there were many other nice ones too. Thanks for stopping by.

Anonymous, thanks for stopping by!

Yup, that's the sign, Kay, I like it too. Personally I do like cafés where you can still have a relaxed visit without screaming babies in oversized prams and disrespectful parents that couldn't care less about the comfort of other paying guests. It's *a bit* too much of that around in Sweden nowadays...

Thanks for stopping by, Olga, I hope you had something nice for lunch:)

Ralph said...

It isn't just the food, although great. It is the ambiance of the unhurried service, the red checkerboard tablecloths and the very inviting red awning over the front door. It makes you want to stay and enjoy...

This is a place I could relate to. It looks like a cozy cafe with delicious smells.
Beautiful post for RT. Have a happy day.

Dianne said...

John said...

Hi Pia; a lovely cafe. It is 6.51 AM here and I am getting breakfeast pangs looking at all those baked goodies! It is raining, the pond looks pristine with the fish having fun. Have a nice day.

Felisol said...

Hi, Pia K,
you've caught the mood of this very special café.
I very much like places like this to sit down and find some quiet and ease with friends, family or alone with a good book.
I am struggling with overweight and should probably got come too often.
From Felisol

Pia K said...

You're quite right, Ralph, everything is very much in the details.

Thanks for stopping by, Becky and Gary, glad you liked the post:)

Dianne, one of those times a teletransporter seems like a very good thing, huh...;)

Ha, ha, me too, John:)

I hope you had something extra nice for breakfast then, Titania. I like the short description of the rain and the fishpond, seems very exotic when I look outside my window...:)

Thanks, Felisol. Too bad one isn't at that age anymore when one could eat just about any amount of anything without gaining weight, on the other hand when one has something special like this one probably appreciate it the more...:)
