SMULTRONSTÄLLEN – LUSTFYLLT

I mentioned the expression ‘smultronställen’ here for the first time and it must be one of the most beautiful words I know. Directly translated it would be ‘places for wild strawberries’ but it’s used in the meaning of places where you can find calmness and stillness. Places you cherish and carry with you in your heart.

This is such a place – I welcome you to Lustfyllt.

Lustfyllt

Lustfyllt means ‘pleasurable’ in Swedish and this café is located in Habo just outside Jönköping. Lustfyllt is without a doubt one of the most stunning places I’ve ever been. You drive up here on dirt roads through a deep forest and when the forest opens up this place is reveled. It sits just by the shore of Lake Vättern and it has a garden filled with greenery and beautiful old things. This is one of those unusual places that enables you leave all the stress of everyday-life behind you and just relax.

This day they offered us an afternoon-tea buffet with all things yummy. From homemade scones, jams and a incredible passionfruit-curd to fruit, cupcakes and cookies. Everything was home-cooked and equally delicious.

The place itself are just as great as the food they offer. The high ceilings gives you room to really breathe and the huge windows lets in some incredible natural lighting as well as showing off the ridiculously beautiful scenery. Everywhere you look there is new details to discover – from the fact that the chairs are all different but still goes together so well and the gorgeous tea cups to the rocking chair outside made out of an actual sofa. I truly enjoy this place so much – from the way it looks to the crazy good food they serve. The people working here are also amazing, so kind and service-minded and they make the experience of being here even better.
