We tried to have lunch at Copacabana today (Sunday, Aug 18) and are traveling from Italy with a small well-behaved dog, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. We intended to sit outside at one of the sidewalk tables as soon as one was freed. Since there is no table service you must order at the counter. To order at the counter you need to enter the restaurant. When we entered to place our order at the counter (which is not near the kitchen), with our small dog in my arms, the militant woman at the counter went absolutely ballistic. Yelling loudly at us in Swedish, when I said "Excuse me, but I don't understand" she spoke to us in an angry belligerent voice in English telling us to get the dog outside. Quite clearly, she has either hormone problems or is carrying a grudge from staying home alone Saturday night. Such a bad attitude! Any sensible person would have smiled and said something like, "I'm sorry, but we don't allow dogs inside", and possibly offered some way we could place our order without entering the restaurant. Since there is no possible way to place your order without going inside, and nowhere to leave the dog (all outside tables were full), what did she expect us to do? Being a vegetarian and having been in hundreds of similar cafes all over the world, I know vegetarian cafes are staffed by people who are always so kind and gracious. The belligerent attitude of this hateful woman came as a complete shock. Furthermore, being part of the EU, Swedish cafe owners have the right to determine their own policy toward admitting pets in their establishment. Whether a patron enters briefly with a pet in their arms to place their order SHOULD NOT BE A PROBLEM, especially in a vegetarian cafe! Clearly this is a vegetarian cafe that HATES animals as shown by condoning the behavior shown us by this loathsome employee.

Found this hip café close to Hornstull through Tripadvisor. Had some tables outside, very popular on a sunny afternoon. We ventured inside into the small, and comfy café. Some dishes were vegan, decent selection of cookies and buns as well as a pie, coffees and freshly squeezed orange juice. A choice of three lunch courses also according to the writing board. We found the place hip, comfy, nice, friendly with really good coffee and cakes. View of the Hornstull strand. A very special gem of café!

Often crowded, close to the floating bath "liljeholmsbadet" and neighbour to the old Cinema which is one of the only remaining single cinema theaters at Hornstull. A sunny day you will get the hardest thing to find yourself a place to sit. But there are at least 5 cafés witin 200 meters if it absolutelly full.

When I visit Söder in Stockholm Copacabana is one of the places I try to stop by. Preferably in summer when you can sit outside and enjoy the sun and all the commotion around Hornstull. My recommendations would be the icea tea in combination with some of their Swedish cookies. Very relaxed setting and prompt service.

A hip alternative place with the best artsy atmosphere in Stockholm. Free wifi and great sandwiches but really bad food and lousy service.
