I decided I loved it before I even tasted the food. Glass paneling, toasted birchwood and overt minimalism. All that endless clean light. This place is the aspiring Scandinavians veritable wet dream. It is beautiful as it is straightforward and functional, in plain terms, it’s Swedish. Perfectly so. Unsurprisingly, the food is luxurious, in a way that only truly relaxed food can be. It’s breakfast in it’s most endearing form, unfussy, pared down and fresh. As a result, everything on the menu is excellent. Think crispy, flaky, crusty, cinnamon scented things smeared with butter and homemade jam. Think a caprese salad  peppered with a  fresh basil vinigarette and ripe milky curds. Think fresh coffee and crisp creamy whites and the sort of morning that ought to be lingered over for as long as possible. Cafe Deadend is the sort of place I could happily spend every morning, every day, forever.
