Good evening fellow foodies, hope you are all doing great! In today’s review I will tell you about one of the best cafés I have ever visited: Systrarna Andersson, Café & Hotspot.
Located in Kungsholmen, it was listed by VisitStockholm as one of the city’s most preserved hidden gems.
I probably fika even more than the Swedes themselves, so you can understand my enthusiasm when I finally payed them a visit.
It was a couple of weeks ago on a crisp Sunday and my body was craving for brunch treats, good coffee, Scandi vibes and coziness.
As soon as I come in, I was kindly and surprisingly greeted by a warm-smiled gentleman and his happy “välkommen” (welcome in Swedish). Why do I say surprised? Well, truth be told, great service and genuine hospitality is not often found in Stockholm’s food scene.
Standing by the counter and practicing my Swedish I ordered 2 portions of scrambled eggs (one with bacon and one with pecorino romano), a croissant, biscuits with cream cheese and jam and coffee. Oh, the sacrifices one has to make when being a food blogger…
I was lucky enough to score the best spot in the whole café, a royal looking table setting that provides the dining experience with this yore feeling…
Plus, it makes my job much much easier as you can see in the beautiful photos.
Since there was a lot of food for just one I had to carefully select my bites. I started with the scrambled eggs and I almost decided to only eat those, they were absolutely delicious!
Creamy, silky, moist, perfectly seasoned and with the saltiness of both the bacon and the cheese they were an entire experience on its own.
Hands down one of the best scrambled eggs I’ve had in my life.
Coffee was black and potent, very well brewed and rounding up the whole meal. The croissant was a croissant, buttery and delicious, and the biscuits felt like a sweet end to an outstanding fika/breakfast session.
On my second visit, just 2 days after, I had the chance and pleasure to speak with the new owner Stefan, who took over the business along with his wife on December last year.
I couldn’t visit them before but I am confident to say that this version of Systrarna Andersson is probably the best.
Stefan, his wife and his team are all truly passionate and knowledgeable, and are providing one of the best fika experiences in today’s Stockholm.
Besides the food being delicious, fresh and homemade, all of them have a true spirit of hospitality and are committed to their guests. That my friends is priceless and admirable, so I want to dedicate this post to them.
Keep up the amazing work you are doing, congratulations!
Remember that nice gentleman that greeted me on my first visit? Well, that was Stefan. Apron on, greeting his guests, picking up plates and cups, putting down candles on the tables and making sure everybody is having a good time.
How often do you see a restaurant owner doing such things? Very inspiring.
On this second visit I was also in perfect timing since semlor season had just started. They claim to offer THE best semla in Stockholm.
I have tried quite a few and I’m gonna be completely honest with ya’ll, it was DAMN good!
I was literally making weird sounds and caught the attention of the quiet cafe patrons, haha.
They have breakfast treats, vegetarian options, great coffee, pastries, sandwiches and brunch foods on weekends.
The prices are so fair it’s almost unfair, so kudos to that as well.
Need I remind you to visit them asap?
Semlor season is here and we are still in the winter, so go and warm yourselves with a cup of coffee and 1 semla, or a thousand…
