The Lock Café (Slusscaféet) is situated in the old bridge-guard’s cottage. Here you can have a snack, a hot pie, or just pause for an ice cream and enjoy the moment. Quality in the form of locally produced, ecological and Fairtrade produce is important to our Café. Because I am a potter I have chosen to serve the coffee in my hand-thrown tea and coffee mugs.

In Hajstorp we work together – our nearest neighbours are the ones who deliver the produce and see to it that there are flowers on our door step! We bake most of the bread ourselves. We have a wide assortment for those who are lactose or glucose intolerant. Freijs Livs grocery provides our toppings and vegetables come from our neighbours. Klings Glass in Mariestad delivers our ice cream.

The Organic Breakfast Buffet is served in our café between 8:30 – 9:30 and can be booked throughout the summer. It includes bread, butter, eggs, buttermilk, cornflakes, juice, porridge and more. A filling breakfast for an active day!

On fine days you can sit outside and enjoy the view of the locks.
