“AMAZING ITALIAN!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We'd heard about Nuhi's Deli over the last couple months - first after the closing of Kaffestugan and then with the breads they donated to the Startup Weekend event (delicious) - and we'd been chatting about how much we miss good Italian food in Chengdu. On a lark we decided to try out their full spread last night and we are so GLAD we did!

We ordered a pasta, pizza, and the goat cheese salad. The food was absolutely delicious, high quality/fresh, and we will definitely return in the future.

Three cheers for the arrival of Nuhi's Deli!

“Kaffestugan becomes Nuhi's”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

The Korean/Swedish owners are moving to Seoul in mid-May 2014 and have sold their cafe to others. The new concept is Italian with home-baked bread--but I was assured that the Scandinavian open-face sandwiches will continue on the menu. A sad day for Chengdu....

Hi,


The Swedish open sandwiches will return, as promised, although we might change the recipes to match our aspirations regarding freshness and simplicity. We are working very hard to provide the freshest breads and ingredients daily but it takes time for a new business to figure out how to make, purchase and manage them. For the open sandwiches we need to produce a specific bread and our own mayonnaise and we haven't had the time to incorporate that into our routines yet. We go about this in a controlled manner which benefits the quality of the food that is available.

We hope you bear with us for a while more. We feel that the closing of Kaffestugan might be considered a sad day for Chengdu but at the same time the opening of Nuhi's Deli might be considered a happy day for Chengdu. We work with love and passion for food to make that happen.

“Perfect service and soo good swedish food”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

We almost always eat the Pytt i Panna with eggs and it's always very good. Our son also often take the swedish meatballs and mashed potato which I also can recommend. The coffe is probably the best in whole Chengdu and accompanied with swedish waffles it's a perfect match. The service is always very good and it's an welcoming atmosphere.

“Excellent Service with food to match”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

Stugen is my favorite Cafe in Chengdu. Since finding it I have been going steadily for the last 2 years or so and it never gets old. Large selection of delicious hand brewed coffee as well as home made sweets, cakes, schnapps and of course delicious meal selections. In the winter now they have been making a "soup of the week" which is always a delightful suprise. Great quality meats in all the sandwhiches as well.

But the service is where its at. The bosses will remember you by name, go out of their way to offer any if assistance, and are just overall very attentive. This service attitude has passed on quite well to the staff so even if the owners are not their you can guarantee a good experience. Not to speak of the fact that they collectively fluently speak four languages.

Go for the coffee stay for the food!

“Great Swedish cafe in Chengdu”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

Just had a great brunch at cafe stuggen. I had a potato and pork fryup with two fried eggs and a refreshing cup of Brazilian coffee. Great start to a Saturday in the Du. The family had various sandwiches with salmon and shrimps. The owners are a lovely couple and we have going here for years, because they are genuinely happy to see their locals. They also have a great single malt whiskey collection, when u need a bit of fine drinkin.
