Unique cafées in Skaraborg

What would a day out be without some tasty refreshments at a cosy café? When out and about, it feels almost obligatory to call at a café for coffee and cakes. However, sometimes the café is so charming and special it can be a destination in itself. We have put together a list of cafés that are worth making a special journey for.

Entering Garströms konditori is like taking a step back in time. You will be greeted by a wonderfully elegant environment with a long counter and shelving right up to the ceiling.
