Sophies cafe: I miss you little sister!

Sophies is located on the corner of one of Södermalm’s busiest streets: Hornsgatan. I spotted the place as soon as I moved into my flat as it is right by the grocery store and the recycling station. It attracted my attention because my sister’s name is Sophie!

While Sophies is on a busy street, there is very peaceful way to get there: Montelius vägen. From this little path on the cliffs of Södermalm, one has a spectacular view on Gamla Stan and Kungsholmen.

Seen from outside, it is hard to imagine what to expect inside Sophies. The ground floor only has a small counter and no tables. Right by the door there is a tiny staircase leading to the first floor (second floor for my North American friends!).

The first floor is fairly large with what appears to be a set up to serve buffet for lunch on weekdays. Sophies was pretty quiet this morning. Other than me, only a young couple were enjoying a lively discussion over coffee. Unfortunately my Swedish is not good enough so when they stood and the guy started doing some moves I couldn’t tell if he was showing the girl a new dance or some tae kwon do moves! The guy didn’t really pay attention to me but the girl seemed a bit shy during that short public performance.

Apparently Sophies was opened by mother and son Marita and Marko. Not quite sure why it is called Sophies. I guess I will have to ask next time I go there.

I wasn’t really hungry this morning but I nonetheless had some kind of a raspberry shortbread with my cappuccino. The coffee was good but I could have done without the sweet.

Now Sophie, I promise I’ll bring you to Sophies when you come visit. Hurry up, I miss you little sister 😉

  1. Great photos! And, how sweet that the name of the cafe reminds you of your sister! Here is hoping she can get there soon so you can take her there. I love that bicycle shot…how cool that it serves as the sign holder!
