Both lunch restaurant (inexpensive) and cafe in the main square of Gamla stan. It has the best outdoor seats in Old Town. But the directions to find it from the inside of the restaurant is a well-kept​ secret. Go towards the back of the restaurant after you have bought your food. Exit to the stairwell. One flight​ up you will the door to the back yard.

Food shopping! But also lots of restaurants in all price categories. Try the Algerian one La Gazelle for takeaway​​ food or bring a tasty sandwich​ out to eat on the steps of the big blue Concert​ House next door. Restaurant​ Kajsas Fisk serves one of the best fish soups I know.
