Living in Malmö is like being trapped in an old marriage. It’s pretty, nice and comfortable but can get boring and predictive sometimes. After years and years in the city I have found some places I like to visit more or less frequently.
Café Simpan has a a sort of Copenhagenish vibe. It must be the rugged yet relaxing interior. The ambiance is pretty laid-back. Simpan is not a hardcore pub nor a harcore café – it is something in between. Which means that you could just as well order a beer or a cup of nice tea.
The surroundings are lush, beautiful and a bit offbeat, since not all people know about the hidden jem in the outskirts of the park Kungsparken. However, on a sunny day the café is packed with people. Luckily, there is a generous amount of seating. Sitting here feels like being part of a fancy garden party.
Pronto is a nice café situated on the medieval square of Lilla Torg and has the best cheesecake that Malmö can offer. Cosy up on the second floor by walking up a narrow and completely dangerous staircase.
The staff pride themselves on not belonging to the average collection of hipster-beerplaces on Möllevångstorget, the alternative part of Malmö. Tröls offers a more relaxed outing with a nice patio and good food.
