Coffee break or 'fika' culture is huge all over Sweden, but Malmö stands out for its wide range of trendy, innovative and classic café offerings. Malmö is home to lots of cosy theme cafés in snug settings or green environments blooming with colour. You will find huge ambition among the many cafés which compete over who has the best coffee or cheesecake in town.

    Malmö's cafés are also highly conscientious, so you'll find plenty of organic, locally produced, sustainable and vegan options with a firm focus on health and wellness. But sugar addicts, don't be alarmed! You'll also find plenty of classic, cream-filled delicacies, cakes and international pastries to satisfy even the sweetest of sweet teeth.
