Yesterday we spent the day walking around Djurgarden and experiencing what this unique island has to offer. A large part of the island is mainly forest with a bunch of walking trails throughout, so our plan was to cover the entire perimeter. IMG_7714In one area, we saw these three mushrooms growing out of a tree. We stopped and stared at these for a good 15 minutes. It was fascinating.  IMG_7717

Rosendals Trädgård, Djurgården

When we were about 3/4 of the way around Djurgarden, we stopped for lunch at restaurant Nick had researched called Rosendal’s Trädgård. In front of the Cafe there’s a garden where they grow all of their food, and inside of the glass greenhouse building is the restaurant. Rose’s Garden is set up like a buffet, but each item is priced a la carte. IMG_7776

Everything looked delicious but we decided on a bowl of carrot soup, a veggie sandwich and some chocolate cake. The food was incredible. I felt like I was eating the most fresh and honest food I’ve ever had, and we were staring at the garden it came from while we ate it! You could tell everything was made from scratch; from the soup to the whipped cream, to the best chocolate cake I’ve ever eaten.

To Get to Rosendal’s Trädgård

Take tram line 7 of the Kungsträdgården towards Waldemarsudde. The closest stop is Bellmansro and it’s only a short 5 minute walk from there.
