Swedes love a café and Malmö
is brimming with some of the best cafés and coffee shops in the country. The art of having a coffee and a small bit of pastry is inherent to Swedish nature – they even have a special name for it: fika
. So learn how to fika
as you explore some truly amazing coffee shops. Here’s the best of the best in multi-cultural Malmö
Coffee Shop, Swedish, $$$
If you’re looking for great coffee, excellent pastries and sandwiches – and an extra large dose of charm – head to this local favourite; where staff will greet you like an old friend and where you may not want to leave the cosy courtyard.
Solde Kaffebar & Kafferosteri
Cafe, Swedish, $$$
This café and roastery has been going strong for more than a decade, maybe because local coffee connoisseurs know this is where to get some of the best brews in the city. You can also buy bags of their beans to take with you.
Djäkne Kaffebar & Workspace
Cafe, Swedish, $$$
Owned by a tech company, Djäkne was founded on the premise that good coffee is essential to producing good work. The bright and generous space is open to everyone, with designated work areas. It’s the perfect place to grab a seat and get some work done while sipping on one of their many excellent blends.
A Malmö legend among those who crave a quieter café that serves beautiful cakes, pastries, cookies and some of the best sandwiches in town. Forget the electronics and just sit back, sip your coffee and have an actual conversation.
Coffee Shop, Swedish, Vegan, Vegetarian, $$$
In a city bursting with coffee shops and cafés, this relative newcomer has made a big splash on the scene. Uggla Kaffebar was named in the 2015 White Guide as ‘most rising star’. Old-fashioned filter coffee from freshly ground beans perfectly compliments the food.
Coffee Shop, Swedish, Coffee, $$$
Quirky and off the beaten path, Café No. 6 doesn’t look like much from the outside – but once you cross the threshold you know you’re in for a treat. The very un-Scandinavian decor invites you to sit and relax, and the coffee and pastries are stellar. The staff are friendly and funny, and the garden across the street is owned by the café.

If you’re looking for delicious organic, vegetarian, and vegan fare – as well as plenty of gluten-free options – super casual Café Agnez is the place for you. The cosy interior is home-like, while the sunny courtyard is the perfect spot to linger over lunch. This award-winning café has a big following among locals.
