Östersund a city for Food Lovers
Östersund is a city for food lovers. It has a wide range of restaurants, with an abundance of high-class ingredients, the highest number of culinary artisans in Sweden and many award winning restaurants and the city is the only one in Sweden that belongs to UNESCO’s global gastronomy network. Here we present an array of restaurants offering a taste of Östersund.
In the Jämtland food district, we value local produce, and it is found in many of the town’s restaurants and cafés, such as the award-winning Jazzköket and Lilla Saluhallen. Republiken is focusing on modern food and Clarion takes inspiration from Manhattan in combination with a local twist. Jaktstugan, The Ecocafé and Jazzköket Bistro offer both vegetarian and vegan dishes. For the curious, we recommend a visit to Heim Food Studio with different themes every Friday.
Looking for a trip out? Around the Winter Park there are plenty of fireplaces where you can barbecue something from your picnic basket. At the weekends, you can try the local specialty “Kolbulle” that is cooked over open fire. If you are near the ski stadium you can enjoy panoramic views and lunch at Arctura. Ready for a hearty day trip? Then we recommend Verkö Slott, 17 km from the Winter Park or Tivars Gård, on Norderön, where their own cheeses are in a class by themselves.
For the coffee enthusiast we recommend a visit to Norra Station and Telogott with their own coffee roastery, bakery and chocolate shop. In one of the oldest cafés in town, Wedemarks you can enjoy a piece of traditional Swedish Smörgåstårta, which was actually invented right here. Centrally in the city you will find newly opened Hamngatan 12 and on Frösön you will find Tages café and their specialty Frösökyssar.
Whether you are on a date, on a friends night out or out with your family, Vezzo is a place to suit all tastes. In the same premises, Grinded houses great burgers. If you have a taste for tapas and cocktails, the colorful app-restaurant Pinchos is the perfect choice.
For those who are looking forward to an evening out, we recommend the newly opened bar Magazinet. Other bars to recommend are Brunkullan, Republiken or wine bar Wine Not?
