Believe it or not, if you find yourself visiting the Nobel Prize Museum in Stockholm’s Gamla Stan (Old Town), you don’t have to leave the premises to enjoy a good meal at a reasonable price and in a welcoming atmosphere.
Located at Stortorget 2 in what used to be the city’s Stock Exchange Building, the Nobel Prize Museum might be one of the most touristy of all of Stockholm’s tourist attractions. But the Bistro is anything but. The space itself is charming and lovely, but also rather chic and modern. Artsy images of past Nobel winners adorn one wall and before you leave, be sure to check under your chair to see if any of the laureates signed it!
The Bistro is open the same hours as the Museum and offers a set, daily menu that includes soup or salad, depending on the season, bread with butter and coffee or tea for only 105 kr. Lunch is served from 1100-1400 and while the selections are rather limited, the food is good and meat, fish and vegetarian options are usually available, as is the famous Nobel ice cream, a dessert inspired by those once served at the Nobel Prize Banquets and which is only available at the Bistro.
The Museum is open late on Friday evenings and so is the Bistro, offering cava for 50 kr a glass during a happy hour from 1700-1800 with free admission to the Museum. The venue is also available for private bookings, from breakfast meetings to casual buffets and three-course dinners, and the entire Museum can be booked in the evenings for special events.
