For an affordable breakfast in Andersonville, locals head to this authentic Swedish diner best known for its traditional pancakes with lingonberries. Inside, the small dining room is adorned with bright blue walls, hand-painted murals, and chandeliers hanging from rustic wooden beams. Patrons often try to snag a table by the windows where they can enjoy great people-watching along with their pancakes. Menu specialties also include the open-faced Swedish meatball sandwich, the rye limpa bread, and for especially hungry diners, the Viking Breakfast: two eggs, Swedish-style fried potatoes, pancakes, and sausage.

Insider Tip:

If you’re not a fan of the lingonberries, regulars claim the Swedish pancakes are just as tasty with butter and maple syrup.
