Whatever happened to cosy cafés with comfy sofas?

Then again, I never used to hang around at cosy cafés and if someone dragged me there I used to complain about the smoke so maybe this is some kind of progress after all.

The progress being you're still not going for a coffee? :o)

Probably just a case of my being a bit too stingy. According to an informed source (text in Swedish), they charge €3 and even more for a cup at these facilities.

"informed source"? *frust!* :-D

I had to blink once or twice before I could figure out why that place seemed so familliar - somehow... But oh yes. The one where they are too stressed to make really good coffee - according to MY "informed source"...!

Stingy or not - I have to agree with Per here. The comfyness of cafés are long gone - at least if you stick with the nation-wide (and beyond) café-chains. There are still exceptions to the rule though, thank gosh!

Great shot, interesting perspective - and of course, anything relating to coffee is always a great motive! ;-)

The best coffee place I know in Stockholm is the Café de Maré in Dansmuseet at Gustav Adolfs Torg. Of the chains I like Wayne´s the most. They have biscotti - and sofas!

This looks more like an Italian bar where people drink their coffee (usually espresso) standing. Coffee, in this case, is 0.80 Euro.
An Italian caffè is like a bar but you sit, get table service, often outside, and you will be charged accordingly. 3.00 Euro for a coffee is quite possible in this case.
