What can I say? Malmö is (according to me) the best city in Sweden. It feels like I'm betraying my hometown when I say it + I've never actually lived in Malmö (although I live 10 minutes away, and that practically the same thing, right?). The only city that I can ever imagine living in if I stay in Sweden is Malmö. There's something special about this city compared to other Swedish cities. The people, the atmosphere, the culture - the entire city. It feels like the people in Malmö are more layed back than the rest of the Swedish population (I'm generalizing in huge ways atm, so bare with me). There are a lot of different cultures that meet in the city, which makes it feel like a bigger city than it actually is.
Except for all of that, what really interests me about Malmö are all of the AMAZING cafés! There are so many that I keep going back to that it's hard to try out all of the new ones that are on my never-ending list, what a problem to have eh? Therefore I thought it was time to share some of my favorites! (If you have any recommendations of your own please leave them in the comments!)
Skvadronsgatan 13, 217 49 Malmö
It might not look like much on the outside, but it's the nicest café ever! I feel completely relax once I enter the door to this place. They haven't got a huge menu (you can almost see everything in the second picture + coffee, some sandwiches & salads), which I surprisingly enough really enjoy. They have everything you need but not more if that makes sense. It's a "regular" café (i.e. not focused on being vegan etc) but they still have a few raw-food cakes, kombutcha and oat milk, so it's suitable for everybody. If you come in the summer they also have a outdoor seating area in a small park next to the café which is nice (although I still prefer to sit inside sometimes because I love the interior so much :D)
RAW FOOD HOUSE
Friisgatan 8, 211 46 Malmö
This place is the BOMB! Absolute food heaven, even if you're not the typical raw-food-enthusiast. I mostly come here for their amazing brunch or their wrap (the best thing ever!) because they're both so good that I never want to get anything else... Their cakes are also incredible, but huge (I'm not complaining, I'm the biggest cookie monster of them all :D) so I would recommend sharing dessert if you've already had lunch/dinner. Except for the delicious food; the staff has always been super friendly every time that I've visited which is always a bonus. I honestly couldn't recommend this place enough!
SÖDERBERG & SARA
Mäster Danielsgatan 3, 211 58 Malmö
The ultimate hipster café as my friend put it, and that might be one of the reasons why I love it so much. It also reminds me a lot of France for some reason. It's the perfect place to enjoy a cup of tea and cake, but it's also a great place to get you're breakfast bread to bring home. (This is not a vegan-place, but it's still a nice place to hang out at + the have many vegan drink options, including kombutcha, so it's still worth a visit)
Falsterbogatan 1, 211 58 Malmö
Another great café filled with delicious food. The menu is vegetarian & vegan, so there are options for everyone! In the picture you see the vegetarian brunch which I absolutely love! It's not like any other brunch that I've tried because this one was mostly filled with vegetables, it is simply the perfectly put together brunch plate!
IN THE PINK
Neptunigatan 2, 211 20 Malmö
To be honest I don't hold In The Pink as close to my heart as the rest of the cafés in this post. Don't get me wrong, it's still really good, but simply not as good as the rest. The menu is a combination of diets and the vegan and vegetarians have a combined menu (ask about the vegan options to be sure because it isn't obvious, I ordered a wrap that I taught was vegan but it was made out of eggs, which it didn't say anywhere on the menu). The portion sizes are also quite small (i.e. I didn't get full at all, but I'm usually a very hungry person), so maybe this is better if you want a "fika" (coffee and cake). The turmeric latte was great! I switched out the almond milk & agave syrup for oat milk and that was perfect.
Hopefully you've found some new inspiration of what to do in Malmö - either if you live close by or if you're going to visit from far-away. If you have any hidden gems of your own feel free to recommend them in the comments below!
