House Hunters International the other night about a couple looking for an apartment in the swanky Östermalm neighborhood of Stockholm. Sadly, the episode isn't available online, but suffice it to say the asking prices were in the $1.5 million range.
The episode did serve to remind me about my visit to Café Saturnus in Östermalm last March. I went there for brunch with Marcia & Rutger and their friend Patrick. We had a fabulous meal, everyone was very nice, and the place was as trendy-hipster as it could be.
The New York Times wrote a review a few years ago about Saturnus and a number of other fashionable Stockholm bakeries. I'm happy to report the café is still thriving, and the bulle are just as supersized.
