Restaurang Hjerta

Hjerta is located on Skeppsholmen - an island traditionally strongly associated with the military (a lot of military buildings was located here) Hjerta is an alternative spelling of ”hjärta” which means heart in Swedish. They cook food and serve wine with a lot of heart, and they do it with a twist! They’re located in a former shipyard that has been carefully refurbished and modernized to keep the maritime-touch. The interior is warm and bright with a lovely view overlooking the quay, with all the boats which are so typical for Skeppsholmen. During the summer they have an extensive outdoor seating – just by the water.

Suggested stay: 60 min

Café Piastowska

Visiting Café Piastowska is like taking a trip back in time, to Eastern Europe between the world wars. The décor is rustic dark wood. The tables are covered in poison green lace tablecloths in nylon and set with rose-patterned china and there’s candles everywhere. Food is Polish - you’re definitely in for a treat.
