The guide to Stockholm cafés open in the evenings
Updated 21 Mar 2019
Who says cafés are just for the daytime? Stockholm is packed with bars and restaurants for eating and drinking good food and wine in the evenings, but some evenings you just feel like sitting somewhere cosy and welcoming and relaxing with something simple to eat or drink. That's when a café with longer opening hours is just what you need. Maybe you want to stop for a hot chocolate on your evening walk, perhaps you want to get out of the house and are looking for a quiet moment with your book or a peaceful place to work from. Follow our guide to Stockholm cafés open in the evenings. ´
Cafés in each part of town:
Straight out of the Twenties
Finding a nearby hotel is usually a good tactic if you're out and about late at night, as they're generally open all hours. Gretas at the Haymarket is a Twenties-inspired café, with chilled jazz playing in the background, top notch service and stylish interiors. They serve all-day breakfasts, sweet treats and hot dishes.
- Opening hours: Every day until 8pm
Hötorget 13-15, Norrmalm/City
Café and cycles
Bianchi on Norrlandsgatan is a combination of restaurant, bar, café and bicycle store. You can eat lunch and dinner here, have a glass of wine at the bar, browse the famous Italian Bianchi brand bikes and enjoy creamy Italian coffee. Relax in one of the leather sofas or sit more separately at the bar tables.
- Opening hours: Until 10/11pm
Norrlandsgatan 16, Norrmalm/City
A historic café influenced by the grand cafés of Austria and France. Stylish waiters and a beautiful display of cakes and pastries await you. They serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch on weekends but you're always welcome to pop in for coffee and a cake or a proper afternoon tea.
- Opening hours: Every day until 10pm (Sundays 7pm)
Biblioteksgatan 6, Norrmalm/City/Östermalm
A French boudoir
Gildas on Nytorget is a popular Södermalm institution with plenty of regulars. People pop in throughout the day for breakfast, lunch and dinner, or just for a coffee and snack. The interiors are warm and delightfully kitsch, with French/Moroccan influences.
- Opening hours: Every day until 10pm
Skånegatan 79, Södermalm
Play is a slightly more ambitious concept from the team behind the Panini sandwich chain. Food is cooked on-site and the welcoming atmosphere and board games to borrow make it an easy place to hang out. The menu includes substantial sandwiches, wraps, bowls, buns and bread, coffee, as well as beer and wine and other refreshing drinks.
- Opening hours : Until 9/10pm
Kungsgatan 18, Norrmalm/City
You'll find this café and konditori right next to Vasaparken in Vasastan. Famous for their semlor Lenten buns and good coffee, it's been a popular spot since the Thirties. While the menu has been updated since then with hot dishes, sandwiches, salads and a licence to serve wine and beer, the traditional konditori atmosphere remains.
- Opening hours: Mon-Thurs until 10pm, Fridays 8pm, weekends 6pm
Odengatan 80-82, Vasastan
Generous opening hours
Right next door to the exclusive boutique Nathalie Schuterman, you'll find Café Albert, a cosy little spot that's well-known among Stockholmers for their late opening hours. They're open until 1am at the weekends, perfect if you're feeling peckish in the early hours. They also have an outdoor eating area on Birger Jarlsgatan.
- Opening hours: Sun-Thurs 7am-10pm , Fri-Sat 7am- 1am
Birger Jarlsgatan 5, Norrmalm/City/Östermalm
Café 60 has been in the same centrally-located premises on Sveavägen since 2003, and it's gone through several renovations over the years. It's often busy from morning until evening, with a wide selection of food and drinks to suit everyone.
- Opening hours: Sun-Thurs until midnight, Fri-Sat until 2am
Sveavägen 60, Norrmalm/City/Vasastan
