As far as we know there are two cafés on Hisingen that serves specialty coffee: Alkemisten and Llama Lloyd.
Only a block away from Kvilletorget, in the corner of Tunnbindaregatan and Väderkvarnsgatan, lies Llama Lloyd – the bicycle café. Forget about latte art, this is a filter coffee shop. And no, we didn’t even miss the espresso machine.
Robin, the founder and barista at Llama Lloyd serves you excellent pour over coffee, roasted by Per Nordby. If you’re hungry, you can also get yourself something to eat. Robin makes his own soups, sandwiches and cookies.
The café itself is quite small. There are a few seatings inside, maybe 6-8, but there is also an outdoor seating area by the street, which is absolutely lovely when it’s sunny. The bar desk is also a blackboard, where Robin gives tips about bicycle organizations in Gothenburg, such as where to repair your bike, where to buy a used bike or where to recycle one. The walls are decorated with beautiful Gothenburg prints from Hisingen Grafiska Verkstad.
At our first, and so far only visit (there will be more we promise), Robin brewed Kaiguri, a Kenyan coffee from Per Nordby, which was absolutely amazing. If you go here be sure to go by bike, at Llama Lloyd all bike riders get 10% off.
Tue – Fri: 09:00–18:00
