Cafe Kakmonstret – Umeå – My personal favorite!

Cafe Kakmonstret is, hands down, my favorite cafe in town. It’s not right in the middle of centrum so it’s not usually over crowded but it’s definately not out of the way. Privately owned, this bakery/cafe is one of a kind and a great spot. The staff are really nice, the treats amazing, and the cafe itself is lovely. It’s a house turned into a cafe with connecting rooms.

Cafe Kakmonstret means Cafe Cookie Monster in english. They make some of the most interesting desserts I’ve run into and they’re always amazing.

Gingerbread cheesecake, for example.

They also make the viol biskvi that rekindled my love of biskvi.

It’s a family cafe so it has a back entrance with a ramp for baby carriages and one of the rooms is set up as a play room for kids. Despite this, it somehow manages to be a much quieter cafe than others I’ve been to.

It also has great chairs and a homey, super clean, bathroom.

Because Kakmonstret is a bakery, they make all their own treats and you can order cakes and such to go. They also serve lunch foods if you’re looking for something more substantial.

I’m pretty sure, if I were to live in a cafe, it would be this one. It also turned out to be the prefect cafe for craftfikas, great lighting, great food, great staff.
