Röda sten – go veggie under the bridge.
The old boiler house under the Älvsborg bridge is today known as the contemporary arts centre Röda sten konsthall. They also have a White Guide-restaurant, famous for its delicious vegetarian and vegan food. Sunday is brunch day, here served in a vegetarian buffet-format under the name Meat Free Sunday Brunch. Please double-check opening hours and book ahead, as tables are often much sought-after.
Röda sten 1, Sundays only.
Norda Bar & Grill – brunch bonanza in the old post house.
The restaurant Norda Bar & Grill is located on the second floor of Clarion Hotel Post. The sumptuous brunch includes no less than a buffet of starters, followed by an à la carte main course of your choice and (you guessed it!) a loaded dessert table, by the award-winning head pastrycook Patrik Fredriksson. As a bonus, you can hit the DIY-bar to mix your own complimentary Virgin Mary (non-alcoholic, but with stronger beverages available for purchase). Table reservations are highly recommended.
Drottningtorget 10, Saturdays and Sundays.
Hagabadet – swim to the brunch table.
Swimmers have been splashing around at Hagabadet ever since 1876 and the baths are still as popular. The restaurant is particularly fond of seafood, but the hot and cold weekend brunch also includes meat, vegetarian and rawfood dishes. Local and organic produce, such as the green or MSC-labelled fish or the corn chicken from Berchshill's farm in Munka-Ljungby, are in focus. The buffet is served in two rounds and we recommend booking ahead. Brunch and bath package deals are available online.
Södra Allégatan 3, Saturdays and Sundays.
Boulebar – bonjour brunch (and boule)!
The brunch at Boulebar is the perfect choice when you want to include an activity with family or friends. Decide if you want to start with a game of (indoor) boule or at the brunch buffet. 90 minutes of boule are included in the brunch rate and the buffet is loaded with French delicacies and sweets to suit young and old. The menu is seasonal, but you can always count on finding plenty of baguettes, cheese and croissants. Children under the age of 5 eat for free (and the price is discounted until they turn 15). Read more about the brunch at Boulebar.
Rosenlundsgatan 8, Saturdays and Sundays.
Incontro – family-friendly and close to Liseberg.
Restaurant Incontro is located right by Korsvägen, at the ground floor of Gothia Towers and the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre. The cuisine is inspired by Italy and the weekend brunch buffet is a family-favourite where the buffet costs SEK 15 for each year for children aged up to 12. This is the perfect stop before hitting Liseberg or Universeum Science centre across the street. Selected juices and cloakroom charge is included.
