Cafés in Uppsala

Fika on cafés in Uppsala

Uppsala offers a variety of cafés, from the traditional bakery shop to the modern cafés you’ll find in the city's malls.

Fika (a coffee break) has become a social institution in Sweden and Uppsala’s cafés are well visited no matter what time or day. People take coffee breaks regularly in every corner and Italian espresso is often mixed with traditional cakes and crumble pies.

Sit down at one of the city’s many cafés and soak up all the new impressions. During the winter months you can curl up in an armchair with a cup of fair trade coffee and a classic cinnamon bun, and in the summer you can order a luxurious iced coffee and people-watch from a pleasant pavement café.
