After spending eight weeks in Gothenburg Sweden I thought I would share some of my coffee spots.
Best Coffee in Gothenburg
All my three favourites are equally good, it depends on your location when you need a coffee fix.
Bar Centro - Kyrkogatan 31, 411 08 Göteborg, Sweden
This was our go to coffee spot most mornings, as it was only a 15 minute walk from our apartment. Consistently great coffee, food and service. The croissants are fresh and delicious, and my favourite panino was the salami & provolone, every bite reminded me of Italy. Every day we were treated like regulars; as the owner would greet us with a warm hej hej and have our coffee being made as we walked in the door. That's amazing service. The location is in the central shopping area of Gothenburg, so check this spot out for great coffee, good vibes, friendly staff and scrumptious bites.
Tony's Coffee Bar, Skånegatan, Göteborg, Sweden
One of my top 3 favourites for strong Italian style coffee in Gothenburg. Amazing service and delicious food. A tiny space inside but there’s good outdoor seating if you are a small group. The toasted Geijersgatan are fresh and tasty. My husband enjoys the aragostine and the chocolate croissants. I prefer the plain croissants and the biscotti! Tony’s is well located down near Gothia Towers hotel, the bus stop for the airport if you need a sneaky coffee on the way. Close to the biggest ICA - Focus supermarket. Also nearby is Liseberg amusement park (at times you can hear the screams from the rides) and the museum Universarium. I would strongly recommend a visit to Tony’s next time you’re in Gothenburg.
Viktors - Geijersgatan 7, 411 34 Göteborg, Sweden
Another favourite coffee spot in Gothenburg. Their coffee is slightly more 3rd wave than the other two but still a good coffee. They also sell filtered coffee and an extensive selection of tea, as well as an interesting assortment of soft drinks. The service and attentiveness when making coffee was impressive. I didn't try any of their cakes but they all look homemade and delicious. I would strongly recommend popping by next time you're visiting the library or Contemporary art museum, or just wandering close by the Lorensburg area.
Best Healthy Lunch Spots in Gothenburg
Jos – Lilla Kyrkogatan, Gothenburg, Sweden
This cafe is full of healthy salads and the smoothie bowls are really good too. All served with great presentation and fresh colours – so your choice not only tastes good, but looks good too.
Holy Green – Kyrkogatan 60, 411 08 Göteborg, Sweden
All their fast food is good, fresh and made from scratch every day. Their philosophy is to spread healthy joy with tasty, creative and colourful salads which are as appealing to the eye and the taste buds.
Best Dinner Spots in Gothenburg
Toso – Götaplatsen, 412 56 Göteborg, Sweden
Toso is a well curated mix of Asian cuisines with pleasant staff that are happy to try and explain the menu in english. The size of the dishes are small "sharing meals" and designed to share with friends, they will bring out each dish as soon as it is cooked. The music at first is loud and overwhelming but once you're seated and start eating you get into the lively buzz of Toso. I would recommend booking before your trip as this place is very popular and they are booked out for weeks ahead. Leave room for dessert as these are a must try.
The Market – Rosenlundsgatan 8, 411 20 Göteborg, Sweden
Korea bumps into Mexico with this cuisine, a truly unique dining experience. We went with a group of six and ordered shared plates to try various dishes. My favourite was the taco's no need for starters as the serving are generous.
Tugg - Drottninggatan 21, 411 14 Göteborg, Sweden
Our go to for the best burgers in Gothenburg. The flavour of the beef is so distinct and delicious, my husband and I are stumped to know what they do to the meat patty to give it the crunch and flavour. We have tried a few times to replicate the beef patties at home and haven't come close. Their fries and shakes are pretty good too. It is often packed so be patient it is well worth checking out. If anyone knows their secret please let me know.
