It seems like Karlaplan has been suffering from a severe shortage of quality casual restaurants, but that may be coming to an end – ever since Broms opened its doors at Karlavägen 76 about a month ago the café and bistro has been packed from morning till night. Open every day from 7 am to 10 pm, Broms is fast becoming a Stockholm breakfast staple. Others will have a hard time beating its little breakfast buffet, with several kinds of sour-dough breads baked in-house, fresh fruit salad, home-made marmalades and muesli, cheeses, yoghurt, cinnamon buns and juices plus sublime teas from the French brand Mariage Frères – all for 135 kronor.
Broms is run by Anna Bauer, who previously operated a popular catering company from her garage in Bromma, and Sebastien Boudet of Petite France fame. Boudet is responsible for the bakery, while Bauer designs the lunch and dinner menus. The concept has French influences but is by no means just another French bistro: the menu includes everything from meatballs to falafel salad, lamb shank with couscous and Toast Pelle Jansson. There’s also a daily lunch deal for 115 kronor.
