If you are in Lund and craving for coffee, here is a good place if you are seeking a good one and very delicious sandwiches. It lays just across the Main building of Lund University and close to Domkyrkan on Kyskogatan street.
This coffee shop in Lund has a very cosy atmosphere with relaxing music. During lunch time it is usually very crowded, but highly recommendable during the afternoon.
Besides the sandwiches I mentioned, I found delightful the kladdkaka they serve: warm and … just perfect! The best I’ve tasted so far.
If you are a fan of drawing on hot beverages like me, then the cappuccino is your choice. Try and comment!

From Lundagård to Stadsbiblioteket (City Library) we go thought Sankt Petri kyrkogata. There you can find a little garden where stands a statue of Carl Linnaeus made by Ansgar Almquist.
Carl Linnaeus is known as the father of taxonomy. Born in Småland in 1707, he studied in Lund University and dedicated his spare time exploring the fauna of Skåne. Later he started his studies in Uppsala where he became a doctor. Despite Linnaeus mother’s wishes for him to become a priest, he became a remarkable botanist, zoologist and physician.
One of his major publications was Systema Naturae which became of great importance for the foundation of today’s biological nomenclature. Linnaeus believed that he was classifying God’s creation. He is frequently quoted to have said God created, Linnaeus organized.
Before Stadsbiblioteket was founded the only city’s public library was the university library.
The first city’s Library, Stadsbiblioteket, was founded in 1864 and until 1970 changed to many places to where it is today. The library was designed by the Danish architect Flemming Lassen and completely renovated in 1999.
Stadsbiblioteket provides services such as Library Bus, home delivery service and maintains a wide range of reference materials of Lund’s history and its neighbouring communities.

Going towards Kyrkogatan you find one of the biggest attractions of Lund: Domkyrkan (The Cathedral of Lund).
The cathedral was build before 1085, and the west reconstructed after a fire in 1234. Over time there has been many changes and artistic addition until what we today.
