If there’s one thing I always struggle with when travelling solo is eating alone at restaurants. I have no problem eating alone at home, when it’s just me and my bowl of noodles but put dining me in a public setting and I get really nervous. So obviously this is something I need to practice and if anyone has any tips on how to deal with this I’m all ears! I want to reach a point where I can sit down , really enjoy the meal and not speed eat like a crazy person as I did on my recent Stockholm trip.
One place I managed to really take it easy and enjoy my meal is Gildas Rum in Södermalm. Ok, it was breakfast and it was raining outside so the café was almost empty, but still. The place has two crucial things that a good café should have if you ask me, delicious pastry and interesting interior. At Gildas they choose to decorate the space like a granny’s living room and then added a bit of kitch. The result is a very cozy and colourful café that I can warmly recommend.
