Translating into “Vanity,” Fåfängan requires a bit of an uphill hike, but once there, you’ll realize why the name Vanity is apt. The isolated gazebo-style restaurant/event location stands atop its very own hill surrounded by perfectly manicured trees and spectacular views overlooking the lush green island of Djurgården, Gamla stan in the distance, and amusement park Gröna lund.
On Saturdays and Sundays, you can dig into the gluten-free brunch buffet with seasonal ingredients. Along with a variety of fresh breads, croissants, and pastries, you’ll find a smörgåsbord with pickled herring (sill), smoked salmon, Eggs Benedict, bacon, and BBQ ribs, as well as the occasional paella, seafood gratins, and more. Fåfängan tries to source most of its ingredients locally as well.
