Stockholm is most definitely a lunch-crowd town with signs reading “Dagens rätt” (Today’s dish) inviting locals and visitors alike to hearty food at deep discounts.

Travelers will quickly catch on to this as a way of also shaving a few kronor off expenses while exploring the city.

Stockholm’s iconic City Hall (pictured on the right) is one of the city’s most visited sights, however, within its walls are traditional restaurants that cater to residents during their lunch breaks. Restaurants such as Ragnars Skafferi which many travelers may not know about.

Named after Ragnar Östberg, the architect behind the impressive building, Ragnars Skafferi cooks all its dishes from scratch with local and regional produce from growers around the Stockholm area and Mälardalen.

Meals tend to be traditional Swedish fare like fish and seafood gratin, root vegetables, and on Thursdays, pea soup and pancakes with lingonberry jam and whipped cream. Bread, butter, salads, and coffee are included in the price, and you can check out their daily menu online to see what the Dagens rätt is.

At most restaurants in town, bread, butter, a salad buffet, coffee, and maybe a cookie or two are usually included in the price of your lunch.
