It’s not a restaurant per se, although it does have a lovely restaurant/event space overlooking Lake Union, and used to be a restaurant back in the good old days. As an homage to that, the Swedish Club does “Kafé” Fridays, where they serve traditional Swedish fare starting at noon, transitioning to more significant menu items at 6 p.m. If you’re craving some fabulous Swedish meatballs and you don’t want to navigate a psychologically manipulative maze of furniture to get them, Kafé’s got you covered. There are also the occasional Swedish pancake breakfasts on the cheap, and truly dedicated Swedish food connoisseurs can enjoy Lilla Fredag (Little Friday), which occur on the first, third, and last Wednesdays of the month. For Lilla Fredag, the bar opens at 5 p.m. and the only item on the menu is Swedish yellow pea soup.
