Ahlströms Konditori has served “fika” to visitors since 1901. Take a seat in the café lounge and admire the remaining original pieces of the 100 year old interior, or if the weather’s nice, take your “fika” outside in the cosy courtyard.
Newly opened Kafé Gapet has replaced the classic Café Godhem. The café offers a vegetarian menu of soups for lunch in addition to home-baked sweets and bread. The well-chosen interior setting makes the coffee shop very aesthetically pleasing.
Cinnamon buns you won’t forget at…

”Fika” with a twist at…
Kafé St Agnes
On the street Teatergatan, near the main boulevard Avenyn, you'll find the cosy family-run café St Agnes. Everything they sell is made from scratch and most of the bakery is vegan – but just as tasty (or tastier) than if they had used traditional ingredients. Their vegan "semla", a traditional Swedish pastry, got top ratings in the magazine Syre's test in 2019!
Flickorna på Färjenäs
Dog friendly café Flickorna på Färjenas is located at the foot of the bridge Älvsborgsbron, on the Hisingen side. Enjoy a classic Swedish “fika” accompanied by four legged friends. Here, the dogs are the VIP-guests and they’ll get their own “fika” while you tuck in to your cinnamon bun.
