Blå Porten on Djurgården is a cafe and restaurant with a lovely garden and adjacent to the art museum Liljevalchs (unfortunately under restorations at the moment and closed). Nice food and lovely ambiance for a summer lunch or early dinner. Not far from the ferry from Slussen and  more or less opposite Skansen and next door to the funfair "Gröna Lund".

Skansen is one of my favourite places in my hometown of Stockholm (where I grew up). A mix of outdoor architectural museum and animal park (Nordic animals and more international reptiles!). Here some old fashioned trellis and "Humle" (Hobs) growing in the background.

At Skansen they also demonstrate a lot of traditional handicraft like carpentry, glass making, baking and cheese making (above). All with volunteers dressed according to history. Lovely! Go there if you are in Stockholm. Walk from town via Strandvägen, take the bus or tram or the ferry from Slussen.
