Café Petissan - a petit café

Miss Karin Åkerman opened a petit café around 1870 located at the Observatory hill close to were the Royal technological institute was situated at the time.

The cafe was a popular spot for students and town people alike. It was in business to 1907 when it was moved to Skansen. It is still furnished in the same way with simple chairs and tables, lace curtains and geraniums. Sandwiches and cakes were served along with milk and coffee.

Today the café is open and you can find more information at the website Kafe Petissan.
