Who says cafés are just for the daytime? Stockholm is packed with bars and restaurants for eating and drinking good food and wine in the evenings, but some evenings you just feel like sitting somewhere cosy and welcoming and relaxing with something simple to eat or drink. That's when a café with longer opening hours is just what you need. Maybe you want to stop for a hot chocolate on your evening walk, perhaps you want to get out of the house and are looking for a quiet moment with your book or a peaceful place to work from. Follow our guide to Stockholm cafés open in the evenings. ´
A French boudoir
Gildas on Nytorget is a popular Södermalm institution with plenty of regulars. People pop in throughout the day for breakfast, lunch and dinner, or just for a coffee and snack. The interiors are warm and delightfully kitsch, with French/Moroccan influences.

You'll find this café and konditori right next to Vasaparken in Vasastan. Famous for their semlor Lenten buns and good coffee, it's been a popular spot since the Thirties.

Generous opening hours
Right next door to the exclusive boutique Nathalie Schuterman, you'll find Café Albert, a cosy little spot that's well-known among Stockholmers for their late opening hours.

- Opening hours: Sun-Thurs 7am-10pm , Fri-Sat 7am- 1am
