To understand the title here, please read this article from the Guardian.
This is at the Café Kringlan, mentioned in the article. Here is actually a similar photo, obviously taken at the same Christmas market (but with another person attending the sales).
This is our favorite café in Gothenburg. In the WS you can see a photo (taken in September 2010) of one of the ladies running the business. I have no idea if she is clad in head-to-toe Prada…
I have uploaded several other photos from this café earlier on TE.
This is a photo on the outside.
Here is a photo showing their ”Fat Tuesday” buns.
I have also taken a photo from inside.

Voici une table pleine de bonnes choses; bonne composition et belle présentation, couleurs, netteté, effet miroir dans la vitrine.

Hi Gunnar. Coffee, cakes. How tasty. The selection is very large. But first I read the interesting article. Your Photo added the article perfectly. Here the eye is seduced by the candy. Really, you can look at the photo a long time with pleasure. Rgds, Wolfgang.
Have a nice WE.

Altogether a very sweet picture with fine colours. It's so sweet I almost feel my blood-sugar rising just by looking at it. A good street shot and another fine compilation of pictures and reading material. The story from the Guardian promotes Göteborg so well I feel tempted to go for a visit in a few weeks or so.

Thanks for the links that help the story here. I am very impressed by the array of cakes. The sharpness of the image is great. I think that girl looks rather cold! Great story here.

A very nice and inviting table packed with tasty fikabröd. I would certainly like to have a fika in this café. A really fine composition and perspective. In particular I enjoy your usual inclusion and of some red colour and also that you could read the name of the cafe´. TFS och ha en bra lördagskväll!

Happy New Year!Nice to see your photos after long holiday.
Fine picture from daily life. Is it a face of new scandinavian generation?
Greetings from Russia,

la preuve qu'on trouve de tout en Suède, les saveurs du monde entier sans doute. Une photo qui ouvre l'appétit avecx de belles couleurs naturelles. UN travail soigné dans la mise au point et l'exposition.
Un excellent dimanche.

Good quality, very good contrast and sharpness.
Marvelous colours and saturation.

Da bin ich schon wieder. Das ist ja ein Beitrag, der einen schon vom Anschauen zunehmen lässt ;-) So viele Köstlichkeiten - aber auch so viele Kalorien. Ein rundherum schöner sehens- und lesenswerter Beitrag - passend zum Wochenende. Das ist insgesamt TrekEarth vom Feinsten!
Grüße aus Siegen!
snunney (84887) 2011-01-09 2:45
What a delightful range of cakes and pastries; one would go down nicely right now with my morning coffee. An attractive and well presented daily life composition. The waitress seems somewhat preoccupied; it must be cold standing out there for any length of time during the cold weather.
Kielia (23703) 2011-01-09 3:07
it seems to be a very pleasant – and tempting - place! Great atmosphere of the stand at the Christmas market with wonderful colors and a very nice perspective. My compliments, also for the interesting note. The Guardian hits the nail on the head.
romanaa (7966) 2011-01-09 3:57
very sweet picture here, but I feel sorry for that lady that has to spend her youth freezing outside instead of having her coffee in.
emka (79875) 2011-01-09 11:02
Hi Gunnar, Yes, I would like something, but only very small cake and could it be hot tea instead of fika? This display looks very tasty indeed, and the seller is very similar to my last Coach Surfing guest. And you probably came with this blanket in case there was nothing red.
Have a nice evening
Silvio1953 (123561) 2011-01-09 12:21
Ciao Gunnar, lovely composition with beautifulgirl and a lot of godies, splendid clarity and wonderful colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
s_lush (16134) 2011-01-09 23:14
Your interesting, colorful and high-quality picture is an excellent additional illustration for the Guardian's article and for the Swedish coffee-drinking traditions. Excellent composition, colorful and tasty details, charming girl, beautiful colors and absolutely irreproachable photographic qualities!

TopGeo (38204) 2011-01-09 23:37
Hello Gunnar! A lot of drawings of foods or sweets in a scene of street that gives elements interests! A arrest in the city with interesting idea and thoughts!Superb all work
Graal (97857) 2011-01-09 23:43
good shot and reportage. An interesting note and links to the same place. Fine presentation of Cafe in Gothenburg. Well done photos.
Have a nice day.
boa (6075) 2011-01-10 13:59
One thing is for sure, i would be happy if i had a cafe like this in my neighbourhood. It is also an excellent idea of Café Kringlan to display their pastry outside. Who can resist to pay a visit here?
Fine reportage, fresh colors and sharpness, well done!
Ha en trevlig kväll.
ellelloo (6572) 2011-01-11 11:56
This is a really mouth watering photo! ;-) And it is also a well presented street photo and a good promotion of this café as are your other photos of from this same place. A good composition and excellent photo quality. And so is the Guardian article a good promotion of Fika concept and of Gothenburg in general too. If I ever visit Gothenburg, this Café Kringlan is a must. :-) A fine TE contribution!
abmdsudi (43718) 2011-01-12 2:06
Now i understand the meaning of the title, thks to your notes and link. What I like most are the light quality and colors which make this picture so pleasing to the eyes. Red naturally has strong magnet to attract eyes, and all those goodies are very appetizing well spread diagonally. Good closeness to the subjects while the soft light falling on the young woman is awesome, in particular the skin tone looks so natural. Well done, TFS. Have a nice day. Best rgds
mesutilgim (85420) 2011-01-12 10:23
Hi dear Gunnar,
First of all congratulations to your 700th entry at TE. This is a real "appetising" capture with nice fresh and warm colors. The smell of the cinnamon cames up to here !!
TFS and best regards
PS.Nice to remember my aquarell in Siegen :-))
jlbrthnn (76037) 2011-01-14 3:24
The newspaper article is quite convincing, with a very pretty picture. I appreciate all these photos link, and obviously the latter. A note also very interesting. Bravo.
Have a nice day
asajernigan (21298) 2011-01-16 8:21
If these sweets taste half as good as they look, I understand why this is your favorite cafe! Your composition is nice using a diagonal view of the table to create depth and direction. The girl add a sense of scale for the shot as well as a good focal point. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has excellent sharpness.
jaywalker (16101) 2011-01-18 13:46
Hi Gunnar, I love the expression on the girls face she looks totally fed up, but what a gorgeous array of cakes they make my mouth water, a really nice photo through-out, kind regards Wilson.
eldancer1 (28513) 2011-01-20 9:25

Vasa (16778) 2011-01-28 16:56
your shot could be incorporated in my recent serial. Nice is this presentation of Goteborg cosmopolit. Nice to see you again.
jemaflor (85476) 2011-01-29 1:15
Sympathic view with good food I suppose ... well composed with the sailers and perfect shrpness and colors, good appetite !

På något sätt känner jag igen mig, kanske är det bakverken som är bekanta.

Nice and interesting image with this pretty girl and her's sweet offer.

Interesantan tekst o kaficu i trenutku sa opisom ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazana prodavacica i specijaliteti za jelo.
Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak, lepi specijaliteti.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.
An interesting article about coffee and time with a description ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated saleswoman and specialty food.
