This building is from the 1400's and is an original piece of the old city. There are some swords and armor and each table has a clay wine jug with a burning candle. The waitress was very friendly. She took my friends' orders in Swedish and then tried to take mine. I looked blankly at her and she apologized before speaking perfect English. The food was quite good and of course, traditional Swedish. We had the Plank Steak which of course is cooked on a wooden board with potatoes and vegetables. It was very good and the portions were quite large. To drink, I had the Swedish apple cider, similiar to Cider Jack. There's many other traditionally dishes such as lox pudding (made from salmon and potatoes), reindeer, and waffles for dessert. However, if you aren't feeling adventurous you can get a hamburger too!

Restaurang Kaffegrillet is a cafe in Gamla Stan, right across the street from The Royal Palace and The Royal Cathedral (see other journal entries).
I went in on a chilly winter day for coffee, soup, and rest. I got all this and more. After some small talk with the server (and my order for coffee and chicken soup with curry), he told me how this restaurant was built over 14th century ruins, and invited me to see the 14th century arches in the basement.
Without hesitation, I headed downstairs, and found their medieval dining room. It has brick walls that contain remnants of the 14th century arches. It was a very special treat to discover something like this. The coffee and soup were great too.
In addition to light eats, they have full meals. They have sandwiches (70-85 SEK or $7-9 US), fish and meat entrees (90-175 SEK or $9-18 US), pasta dishes (85-95 SEK or $9-10 US), and Swedish dishes (90-180 SEK/$9-18 US) including reindeer, meatballs and herring.
A great spot to rest and warm up while walking Gamla Stan.
