Cheap Eats in Stockholm

List View
Map View
Though the word "cheap" is relative when dining out in Stockholm, affordable options do exist. Tuck into crepes at BYN, enjoy classic Swedish fare at Ragnars Skafferi or affordable seafood at Stockholm Fisk, or head to Café 60 for large crayfish salads. At the market hall Söderhallarna, vendors cater to lunch crowds from nearby offices (as well as hungry visitors). And be sure to have a hamburger sandwich at MAX.
