The sweet fragrances of fresh-baked goods, artisan sandwiches, and imported Swedish coffee waltz about the interior of this charming European-style café, nestled in a Swedish timber-framed house with ample seating and loads of warmth. Early morning guests can add pep to their palates with traditional Swedish coffees brewed into lattes as smooth as a Santana and Rob Thomas collaboration. Lingonberry-loving lunchers are invited to nibble on traditional Nordic sandwiches served on Max's stone-baked bread, such as the Scandinavian sandwich, which is layered with smoked salmon, cucumbers, and onions ($8.50), or the smoked-sardine sandwich, which is smothered with Latvian sardine pate and topped with onion slices and cucumbers ($7.50). Stockholm Bakery's vegetarian victuals include creamy potato gratin ($5.50) and the Farmer's salad, sporting fresh seasonal berries, almonds, raisins, thinly sliced onion, and a delicious douse of house dressing ($7.50).
