A restaurant business with ethical purpose, Green Rabbit works with its grain growers to make sure their income is guaranteed. The chefs, Mathias Dahlgren and Martin Berg, have operated two restaurants in the Michelin Guide, and there is no doubt about their culinary skills as well as their Fairtrade credentials. Beautiful bread and pastries are served in the brunch session.

Bröd & Salt

Bröd & Salt sticks to the most traditional way of baking bread and pastries, browned in the stone oven everyday. This practice, together with the craftsmanship and experience of the baker, are the key to the mouthwatering loaves here that make its fantastic sandwiches.
