Cafe Suedois at the Swedish Institute
The cafe Suedois is a Swedish cafe in Paris located within the cultural centre and institute with its museum, and with freshly baked bread, cakes and pastries, along with other snacks and traditional Swedish classics, it makes a change from French cuisine.
About the Cafe Suedois
Within the Marais area in a restored building you will find the Institut Suedois or Swedish Institute in Paris with its cultural centre and museum, and quite fittingly, you can also discover the Swedish restaurant called the Cafe Suedois.
Now do not expect anything truly fancy as the decor and seating is very basic like an Ikea style, yet there is an outside terrace for al fresco dining on warmer days, and there are traditional Swedish delights on the menu including fresh bread, pastries and cakes that are all baked on site daily, just like a Kanelbullar, which is a traditional Swedish cinnamon bun.
And along with numerous freshly made sandwiches to keep you going in between visiting the numerous tourist attractions, there are also items such as elderflower syrup made from freshly picked flowers that you can also purchase to take away, plus all of their recipes that the Cafe Suedois uses, are available in a cookbook, which you can also purchase on site.
Visiting the Cafe Suedois Swedish Cafe in Paris
As we have mentioned, this cafe in Paris is located within the Swedish Institute in the restored mansion house called the Hotel de Marle, and you will find the Swedish Cafe Suedois immediately after going through the blue gate into the courtyard at the entrance to the institute.
You will find the Cafe Suedois open on a Tuesday to Sunday from noon until 6pm and no reservations are taken, although we would like to point out that it is closed at all other times and if for some reason the Institut Suedois is also closed.
And being located in the Marais area in the 3rd Arrondissement it is close to some unusual museums in Paris, and you will find that the nearest Metro station is the Chemin Vert stop via line 8.
