A masterpiece in the making at Ritorno

One of Stockholm’s classic patisseries is Ritorno, located on Odengatan by Vasaparken in Vasastan. Here, people have been enjoying good coffee and food since 1959. History is deeply rooted in the walls, and when you enter, it’s as the time has stood still. With the charming decor of bygone days preserved, it’s like visiting a café from the 1950s or 60s. In addition, the atmosphere is – as it always has been – wonderfully friendly, with a mixed crowd of guests (many of them regulars). In other words, this patisserie is perfect for a cup of coffee and a piece of delicious cake.

With a long tradition and their own bakery, Ritorno delivers fantastic pastries – not least cakes. Here you can get classics like princess cake but also fancy decorated themed cakes like Christmas cake, graduation cake, summer cake, and winter cake. For those with gluten and/or lactose sensitivities, there’s a lovely chocolate and passion fruit cake. And if you want other goodies, you can also order a wide range of luxury pastries (including one of the city’s best semla). Sit down at the tables and enjoy your favorite piece of cake or order a cake for your next birthday or whatever occasion you want to celebrate. If you can’t make it past Vasaparken, Ritorno is also located on Torsgatan and Dalagatan.
