Outside an Expresso House in Stockholm, Sweden

My First Day in Stockholm (an Expresso House!)

During my first full day in Stockholm, I ventured out from my hotel rather aimlessly. Unsure of my surroundings, I decided to explore the city on foot.

About 20 minutes into my walk, I chanced upon an inviting cafe, Expresso House. I chose a table by the window that offered a pleasant view and ordered a latte.

At the time, I was unaware that Expresso House is Sweden’s version of Starbucks. They’re everywhere!

Unexpectedly, I ended up spending the entire day there, which was a bit of a surprise! The combination of jet lag and a restless previous night made the cozy cafe an ideal refuge. I just didn’t want to leave my comfortable spot.

And as expected, a few lattes and a nice, relaxing environment was just what the doctor ordered. I could even people-watch as I read up on activities in Sweden.

The Expresso House Address

If you’re interested in checking out the place, the address is “Jakobsbergsgatan 10, 111 44 Stockholm.”

I just found it to be a really cool, upscale cafe — at least at the beginning of October when the weather was still warm.

The images that you see here were taken at that spot.
