Award winning Borgmästargården
Although, it’s been around for a few years, Borgmästargården has made it to the White Guide multiple times. Borgmästargården is housed in an old villa in the centre of Falkenberg. Discover an array of freshly baked buns and sinfully decadent cakes all served on exquisite crockery here. A word of caution though. It’s rare that you’ll find the same treats on offer every day. That’s because everything’s made with fresh seasonal ingredients that may change from day to day. But no matter what’s on your plate, you can be sure that it is baked with loads of love and passion.
World-class coffee at Cortado coffee shop
There’s coffee then there’s coffee at Cortado’s in Halmstad. With coffee, a small part of the secret is in the beans; the big part of the secret is in the brewing! At Cortado’s they do both exceptionally well. They also ensure they only pick beans that have been cultivated in a way that’s nice for both humans and for nature. Drop by and experience the difference.
Feldt’s Bread & Confectionery
At Feldt’s Bread & Confectionery, there’s a secret ingredient that adds magic to everything they bake. It’s passion. Everything’s made from scratch with natural, organic ingredients. This cosy little craft bakery is situated in Halmstad and greets you with the aroma of freshly baked bread the moment you step inside. Get there early though. This place is very popular and the buns run out real quickly.
Sourdough bread at Gårdsbageriet, Idala
