Stockholm Travel Guide
Stockholm truly is a minimalists haven. The streets are clean, the people are beautiful and the fashion is on point. Our number one piece of advice would be to take full advantage of the transit system. It is like no other. Spacious, on time, and also known as the “world’s longest art exhibit.” Also, if you opt for taking a taxi instead, your bank account will hate you.
Coffee is almost a religion in and of itself here. One that we are most definitely ok with. Also, known as FIKA. FIKA means to take a break from work and socialize with friends while drinking coffee and eating pastries. Sign us up! When we weren’t inhaling cinnamon buns and drinking coffee like it was water we were shopping. Stockholm is filled with beautifully designed stores throughout the city, it’s hard to choose a favorite! Our curated list of our top spots to eat, drink, and shop are below.

EAT & DRINK
Drop Coffee Roasters || Address: Wollmar Yxkullsgatan 10, 118 50 Stockholm
If you’re wondering what the best coffee in Stockholm is, look no further. These guys are award winning roasters, and Drop Coffee is one of the best coffee’s in the world. No exaggeration. You will no regret the line, or the price. Worth every minute and penny.
Urban Deli || Address: Nytorget 4, 116 40 Stockholm
This place is everything you want in a deli/restaurant concept. It’s bright, airy, spacious, and full of delicious options. Urban Deli features both indoor and outdoor seating, and a fantastic by the glass wine selection. However, if you find yourself here on a beautiful day, order from the deli and grab a seat in the park next to the restaurant.
Fabrique || Address: Nybrogatan 6 114 34 Stockholm, Sweden
Remember when I mentioned inhaling pastries!? This is where to do it. The best of the best. Everything here is so delicious and so, so fresh. They have a few locations all over Stockholm, and one even in London. I would suggest getting there earlier if possible, otherwise the cream of the crop will sell out.
Himlen || Address: Götgatan 78 118 62 Sthlm, Sweden
This is the coolest bar in Stockholm. It definitely has a “locals only” vibe and if it wasn’t for my friend Ali taking me here, I would have never known it existed. To the naked eye it looks like an old tax office building, but once inside it is so much more. Hailed as a Swedish/french fine dining restaurant the true standout of this place s not only the food, but the view!
Grandpa || Address: Södermannagatan 21, 116 40 Stockholm, Sweden
With three locations in Stockholm, there really is no excuse to visit. Grandpa features Scandinavian fashion as well as international brands. all of which I want and need. The store itself is decorated to have a cozy home vibe and most of the decor is for sale. The mugs and artwork were some of my favorites. Not heading to Sweden anytime soon? Shop online here
Hope || Address: Götgatan 34, 118 26 Stockholm, Sweden
This men’s and women’s clothing line is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. Clean designs along with expert manufacturing are standouts with this Scandinavian label. I first stumbled upon this brand on Totokaelo’s site and instantly fell in love.
Nitty Gritty || Address: Krukmakargatan 24 S-118 51 Stockholm
The address above is for the women’s store PS. ButI suggest going to both! With brands like Brixton, A.P.C., Harris Wharf London, and Isabel Marant merchandised beautifully through the store there’s no question as to why you would never want to leave this store. Must shop.
Since Stockholm itself is small. It’s hard to pinpoint one exact place to go to besides GAMLA STAN. It’s also known as old town Stockholm. The buildings and old cobblestone streets are beyond stunning.
