Café Rival is conveniently located in the middle of Mariatorget, adjacent Hotel Rival. This popular café serves everything from breakfast to dinner in an eclectic bohemian environment, appealing to locals and tourists alike.
Café Rival has established itself as the go-to destination for coffee and lengthier sojourns. The café features two floors; one is decorated with oriental rugs and photographs of famous Swedish cultural icons. Here guests enjoy a bite to eat, washed down with coffee while enjoying the park views. The upper floor is filled with laptops and students looking to find a more secluded work area. The opening hours are generous and the menu is broad.
Apart from coffee, the offering includes fresh pastries, homemade juices and smoothies as well as classic café-style dishes such as Caesar salad, chèvre chaud and croque monsieur. For breakfast: continental and French with croissant and jam. Come evening, a selection of wine is offered, including organic options.
During the summer, the outdoor seating area overlooking the park is a popular retreat.
