At lunchtime on day one of my Andersen South Sweden Tour I again encountered Swedish Fish.  I have capitalised that because although there was an amazing selection at the Fish Church in Gothenburg, the fish shop and cafe at Kåseberga (Kåseberga Fisk AB) had a very good selection too.  Although my memory was indubitably influenced by my appetite (the fried herring was wonderful) and the fact that I have more photos of this shop.  Whichsoever, feast your eyes on this!

The bank to the right where I saw only a few poppies, is usually smothered in them!
It's just too hot and dry this year so they have finished flowering.

Welcome to the Fisk Shop! 

The staff were very friendly and patient even when very busy.

The other place to eat... must have been good too judging by the queue.  

Wait!  What's that on the roof!!!?  

It turned out the snake was rubber and did a very good albeit passive job of being a cafe-fish-meal-scavenging-gull deterrent.


  1. It is a delightful location to eat. The fish all looked good too.

    1. The variety of fish was enormous Emma. I recognised salmon, and that's about it. Can't read Swedish of course.

  2. What a nice place. This makes me really hungry for fish. I keep forgetting to get any.

    1. How far does fish have to be shipped to get to you Ratty?

    2. I'm not exactly sure. We're right in the middle of the country, so probably that far from the coasts.

  3. I love fish when someone else cooks it.

    1. Yes, me too Geeb. Although lime juice and coconut cream-marinated fish is rather delicious too, and very easy.
