Eat & drink
Welcome to a city for foodies. In Lund you’ll find restaurants in different price ranges and with varied menus.
All kinds of food
Looking for "to go" or want an easy snack? Enjoy a falafel in town, bite into a pizza at one of Lund's pizzerias or why not try some Asian fare? If you have time, walk along Klostergatan, the "food street" where you're bound to find something for your tastes. Menus include a cheese shop, international food, fine dining and cafés. There are also several restaurants mentioned in the White Guide (the Scandinavian equivalent of a Michelin guide), where you can enjoy well-prepared dishes in luxurious surroundings.
Think climate smart
In Lund it's also easy to think climate smart and choose vegetarian dishes. There are several completely vegetarian restaurants. Call the restaurant in advance if they don't offer a complete vegetarian or vegan menu, they're sure to help. Follow this link to find restaurants that serve vegetarian and vegan menus. If you want to shop organic and locally produced foods, visit one of the municipality's several farm shops. You can even catch your own fish at some of them.
Coffee and cake (fika) in Lund
Central Lund is full of different cafés where locals and visitors gather for coffee, work, study, socializing and just chilling. Check out which cafe will best suit you in our visitor guide.
Enjoy a large selection of delicacies and speciality stores in Lund city centre. You can buy cheese, fish, chocolate, organic and local produce and much more in several places in town. Saluhallen (Food market) in Mårtenstorget has specialist stores and restaurants all under one roof. Real foodies should take a food or taste trip, a popular feature in Lund's event calendar.
