Stockholm, the capital of Sweden and meatballs is one of the most child friendly city in Europe with many restaurants and cafes offering kids menus, highchairs and changing stations.

Don’t forget to enjoy “fika”, the famous Swedish coffee break. Make sure to stop at one of the many cafes to enjoy a cup of coffee and share some delicious “kanelbullar” (cinnamon rolls) with the rest of the family.

At BabyBreaks, we have researched the best child-friendly restaurants in Stockholm, so you can plan your mealtimes around the city.

1. Fotografiska

Located on the top floor of the Fotografiska Museum, this restaurant is known to be one of the best in Stockholm. It offers stunning views of the Swedish capital and the dining area is airy, allowing enough space for strollers. They also have highchairs available.

So why not combining a cultural and culinary experience? Fotografiska prides themselves on their organic plant based kitchen and no waste policy.
Children (0-3) eat for free on the weekend for brunch.

2. VaPiano

Very friendly Italian restaurant. If the kids are tired of discovering Scandinavian food, nothing better than offering them a choice of pizza or pasta (don’t miss the airplane shape pasta). VaPiano can be found in different locations across the city and is an all time favourite for many families.
