On our last day in Stockholm was really only a half day because we were booked to take a ship to Helsinki for the last leg of our trip. So we stuck close to our apartment in Södermalm. It was nice though because we got to see a bit more of this neighbourhood which is very hip. There are endless amounts of bakery cafes and funky stores. I would definetely love to stay in this part of Stockholm again, if only for the amazing pastries.
So for breakfast we visited one of the most exquisited bakeries I’ve ever seen, Robin Delselius Bakery. Robin Delselius is a third generation baker of 30 years experience. He learned his craft from his mother and would first open this bakery in Södermalm and later open two more locations in Stockholm and a summer cafe, Stavsnäs Vinterhamn in Värmdö with his mother. Robin Delselius Bakery offers an amazing array of savory and sweet pasteries, breads, cookies, pancakes, overnight oats, sandwiches, salads, wraps, coffees and smoothies (to name a few). The gorgeous decor complements the delictable offerings, which makes it a must-do place to breakfast or brunch or lunch!
Octavia ordered a custard filled Solbulle. I would prefer she start the day with something healthier, but it was hard to denie her something that looked that yum. Marco and I shared a Pain au Chocolat and a ham and cheese toast sandwich with a bonus healthy salad. You can tell by the pictures that it was all pretty fantastic. The oat milk cappuccinos were also really great and prefectly balanced.
After breakfast I walked Octavia and Marco to a Park Nytorget, so that I could wander the back streets of Södermalm. This park is a hidden oasis, with its bright flowers, perfectly manicured grass, fountains and colourful playground equipment for little ones. It is adjacent to many cafes, so it attracts alot of families.
After dropping the kids off I wondered around the streets, window shopping at bakery cafes and quirky stores. Since it was a weekend not all the stores were open, but the ones that were had some really interesting stuff. My last stop was Åhléns Department store. These more mainstream stores did have some sales, so I was able to get some reaosnably priced clothes and trickets.
Well thats my last day in Stockholm. In my next post I will take you on a boat and oversea to Helsinki.
