Cafe & Bistro

Since 2003, the Not Quite Café has been housed in the old forge at Fengersfors mill. Over the years, music and concerts have been offered here in addition to many meals, steaming cups of coffee, blooming cakes and extra buttery buns from the bakery Brukets godaste, which is located on the other side of the garden. Many would describe the café as the heart of the mill. This is where you can settle down, be served something you could never imagine and fill your stomach with some new energy and then wander further into the factory for new impressions and adventures.

Now it is nailed down that the café operation will return to Not Quite. We are very happy that Not Quite members Malin Robertsson Harén and Ida Stelter will have joint responsibility for the café.

We will have a small but varied menu with flavors from many corners of the world. Tunamelt was a favorite when I lived in New York so I want to serve that!


Both Malin and Ida are old in the context, Ida has worked for many years at the bakery Brukets godaste and Malin worked in the café for many years before we ran the concept with a tenant. If you have visited us in Fengersfors before, it may very well be that you have met these two joy-spreaders before. Malin will be responsible for what is prepared in the kitchen and Ida for the serving.

A seasonal and varied menu with lots of local produce will be served. Taste memories from travels, Moroccan, Italian, Korean, Mexican, Hungarian and Japanese, but also Swedish home cooking sometimes. It will be good!

For both me and Ida, the overall feeling is important, coming to Not Quite Café should be an experience for both eyes, mouth and ears. Beautiful pastries, beautiful old china, flowers and lovely music.


During low season, it’s possible to book food in the cafe for groups or parties, then it also works to book a three-course dinner. Contact us for menu and prices.
