The newly-opened Scandic Grand Central in Stockholm is gorgeous, isn’t it? After seeing these pictures, I’m dreaming of visiting Stockholm again.

A few years ago, we stayed in the Scandic Hasselbacken in Stockholm, and it was one of the prettiest hotels we’ve stayed in. I highly recommend it, especially if you have younger kids, because it’s close to a lot of fun things to do, including Junibacken and Skansen. (And it has the most amazing, organic breakfast spread you have ever seen.)

Every morning, we helped ourselves to a large mostly organic breakfast buffet filled with meats and cheeses and breads and cereals and fruits and juices and all the Swedish pancakes we could eat. Man, that was living!

One night, we went to a restaurant in central Stockholm, and the girls got pancakes for dinner; unlike at breakfast, when we’d been spreading lingonberry jam (which you can get at IKEA, if you live near one) on our pancakes, the restaurant added jam to whipped cream and spread that on the pancakes.

From that moment forward, we had a whole new level of appreciation and love for the Swedish pancake. Read the rest of this entry »
