Gretas café at Haymarket by Scandic


Step into the 1920s and have a glas of wine & some seasonal and healthy bistro food in a glamorous and art déco setting at Gretas in Haymarket by Scandic- in the heart of Stockholm.

This review is based on the evening bistro menu.

The bistro menu offers four lacto-ovo vegetarian dishes but no vegan options this particular time. However, its possible to make all the dishes vegan upon request. The menu is also seasonal an is updated regularly every second month so sometimes you will also find vegan options available. They make for example a vegan mayonnaise with soya milk and also a pancake made of chick peas which are not on the menu.

Our favorite dish when visiting Gretas was Grilled Levain- an Italian brushetta with lots of flavour and umami from the baked tomato and good textures.

We might have enjoyed The Rye Bread Avocado more for breakfast or as a brunch dish than on a bistro menu but other than that an avocado sandwich can never go wrong. The risotto was slightly overcooked but had excellent creamy texture and distinct mushroom flavour.


  • Grilled Levain- Tomato Baked Tomato, Tapenade, Crème Fraiche, Basil – 95 Sek

  • Rye Bread Avocado-Avocado, Baked Egg, Cream Cheese, Cress – 95 Sek

  • Risotto- Carnaroli Rice, Mushroom Broth, Confit Leek, Truffle Butter, Parmesan Fried Mushroom – 165 Sek

Modern luxurious 1920s art déco interior with colors of romantic pink and elements of gold, Carrara marble and green plants.

You order at the counter. The waitor made sure we had everything we needed even though they were one man short.
