Lots of delicious vegan options!

Hermitage Restaurant, in walking distance from our hotel in the touristy area (Gamla Stan) was a God-send and we ate 4 meals there. The restaurant has a vegetarian hot and cold buffet, with many vegan options. In fact, the only hot foods option that was not vegan was the vegetarian lasagna, which my husband enjoyed. Each time we were there, there were new options, and we greatly enjoyed the food, both hot and cold dishes. We thought the lentil dahl soup was awesome, as good or better than we've had in Indian restaurants. Their bread was excellent, as was their hummus, and a stew containing vegetables and a soy meat. They have free, good-tasting water in the back right-hand corner.
There's also a deli area where you can buy desserts, and I was surprised that all the pies except one was vegan. Both fruit pies I had were delicious.
The downside is that the restaurant is small and often crowded, with the buffet tucked in a corner. Sometimes at dinner, the staff has trouble keeping up with removing dirty dishes, so you can be forced to look at a dirty dish that someone near-by left. But when it comes to the food and the prices, no compaints. The staff speaks good enough English that they can answer any questions about the food. My husband and I were delighted to find such delicious food in the touristy part of Stockholm, and would not hesitate to eat there again.
Lots of vegan options, Delicious Food, Staff speaks English
Small & Crowded at peak times, Staff can be slow to clear dishes, Eating outside subjects you to smokers.
