As every similar place in Paris, this little café serving cakes, soupes and sandwiches is always packed, but aside the great fruit cakes and cinnamon buns,
The event was held in the backyard of the Center and in the small café in the front. The garden was decorated with colourful lamps and gazebo tents out in the open, while the chefs were preparing the meals on the spot.
I decided to try Petter Nilsson's (a chef who owns a restaurant La Gazzetta in Paris) cabbage and lingonberry salad with a touch of herring powder (what would swedish cuisine be without lingonberry and fish). After the delicious salad, i went for a taste of kanelbulle - cinnamon roll - and a small fruit pie with a glass of inevitable elderberry squash.
Today, October 4th, is Kanebullens dag or Cinnamon roll day. So hurry up over to the Café suédois to celerate this event. At the moment the Center holds a temporary exhibiton of August Strindberg photographes which is, beside of eating a cinnamon roll, one more reason to visit the Center.
