Love these kind of places for lunch. A bit of a DIY, just order, then get your own salad, drinks, silverware. They'll bring your main plate out soon enough. When I went it was full, but not overly crowded. Staff was super friendly and explained (in English) the set up to me. And, to top it off, the food was... More

Sandwitch in the place tasted good with the meat. The environment was nice as well. The new stuff when I went there helped me when I had hard time understanding the concept of the place. The stuff was nice.

So old- fashioned and so lovely. Great pastries, good coffee. Attentive and at the same time unobtrusive service. Tack så hemskt mycket!

Kafe de Luxe is a restaurant where you get nicely prepared advanced food. The place is very traditional and the interior is "old fashioned" retro style. Old radios, lamps, furniture, counters, signs etc. No luxury or modern bits and pieces. The food though is really modern and a combination of interesting tastes. We had the preset 4 course menu and... More

Food was OK. Chairs Alittle unstable. Too crowded. Staff are friendly. Long wait to pay at the bar as they scramble to make drinks.

I actually didn't have other expectations than to have a decent meal when entering this place, but boy was I wrong: I had their luxury "Flora and Fauna" menu (as I remember), and I was in for a treat that came completely unexpected. I wasn't cheap, though, so I might have known, but still....... I can highly recommend this place... More

Went here for a drink with a friend. Seems like a really nice venue and the choices for lunch seemed great.

Nicely composed meal but not the best cooked food, and desert not exactly as the menu stated. Big plus for the locally produced ingredients. Nice and helpful staff. Quirky 50-60s decor, which wasn't all comfortable to sit in. Toilet area smelled old urine, not nice.

Walked in explaining to them that I don't speak any Swedish. Very helpful, the girl at the till told me the best seller and guided me to the free salad bar and dessert bar. Food was really good comfort food with no pretenses. Good portion.
