Haga is one of the oldest and most visited district in Gothenburg. One reason for such popularity is the individual and exceptional atmosphere combined with the original 19th century architecture. But there is one more reason, and I’m sure as important as the one mentioned before. Haga is a home of Hagabulle. What’s that? Hagabulle is a cinnamon bun. But what makes it special is a size.
The largest cinnamon bun – this is an advertising slogan of Hagabulle. The most famous Hagabullen are served (and baked) in Café Husaren, which is located at the main street, Haga Nygata.
Café Husaren is located in the building dated year 1800. This is a typical swedish café, where we can choose a table inside or outside the building. Menu offers large selection of sweets (cookies, cakes, muffins) and lunch offer such as sandwiches, tarta or quiches. And of course coffe, as we are in Sweden, land with a huge consumption of this drink If you order typical swedish coffe, brewed in filter coffee maker, refill (påfyllning) is included in price ( except weekend, then you have to pay 5SEK more for coffee refill). The most famous position in menu is a Hagabulle, which bring a lot of tourist to the café. I believe that the size is the reason what makes tourists visit Café Husaren. But I’m sure that everyone who ones will try this super large cinnamon bun, will love it. The taste is extremely delicious and this is definitely the best cinnamon bun in Gothenburg. For me, it is the best one.
Buns are fresh, the dough soft and plump, full of cinnamon flavor and aroma. Hagabulle is actually large, is a small pizza size, so it’s not easy to eat it by yourself. It is a good idea to share a portion with a friend. But if you still have something uneaten, you can just ask the waitress for a paper bag.
