Gothenburg Travel Diary: Day 2

On our second day in Gothenburg we woke up to some better weather and we headed straight down to breakfast at our HOTEL. We didn’t really have a plan for the day at this time but we got that sorted over the breakfast buffet. I follow a pretty strict diet when I’m at home, but when I’m on vacation I eat what I want. So I splurged on some pancakes, scrambled eggs, some cereal and some white bread with salmon and cheese. And some juice! I rarely drink juice but I love it!

Breakfast at Hotel Eggers Gothenburg

During breakfast we decided on three things we wanted to do during this day. Visit the palm house at the Garden Society, have a traditional Swedish Fika at Kafé Magasinet (since it was full when we tried to visit the day before) and eat dinner at Tacos & Tequila. You can already tell that this day involves a lot of food. A lot of delicious food. You are not ready.

The Garden Society of Gothenburg

After our delicious breakfast we got dressed and literally headed across the street. The Garden Society of Gothenburg was insanely close to our hotel. We located the giant palm house immediately and were both blown away. The Garden Society of Gothenburg is a park from 1842 and the palm house was built in 1878! In the palm house you can find plants like palms (of course), giant monsteras (like gigantic for real) and other tropical plants. If you’re in Gothenburg I definitely recommend that you visit this unique place.

Kafé Magasinet

The palm house was a big success for us. It had been at least 2 hours since we had breakfast at this point so we did the most Swedish thing we could. We went for some classic Swedish fika. I had stumbled upon Kafé Magasinet on Instagram and added it to my bucket list. This time when we arrived there was a few empty chairs. A traditional chocolate ball and carrot cake to share was our fika of choice this day.And as you can tell by Sandras face; they were delicious. Kafé Magasinet is a café indoors but it feels like being outdoors. That did not make any sense. Just like the palm house its a glass building. So it’s filled with natural light but you have a more comfortable temperature than being outdoors. After spending several hours just sitting down and catching up it was shopping time!

We didn’t really shop much. But I did find some basic t-shirts, a blouse and a pair of earrings which were all on sale. If I’m a budget bitch that always shop in the sale-section? Yes, of course. We strolled around the streets of Gothenburg for a while and then headed back to our hotel for a necessary power nap.

Tacos & Tequila

Dinner time! We met up with a friend of ours and went to Tacos & Tequila. We had both tacos and tequila of course. I had some delicious fish tacos, Sandra had an enchilada and our friend had lamb tacos and we shared a nacho-bowl for starters. Tacos & Tequila has an awesome atmosphere and the food is absolutely amazing. I didn’t know tacos could be this good. The next time I go to Gothenburg I will make sure to eat here once again. This was definitely a favorite! Just as Kafé Magasinet I stumbled up on this place on Instagram and we were not disappointed. After having tasty tacos and some kind of drink with tequila we decided to leave and move on to a local pub. We had a fantastic evening!
