I visited Johan’s Jӧe in downtown West Palm Beach this morning. (Another establishment I’ve been dying to try thanks to IG!) Oh man, this one may have spoiled me a little too much..

Johan’s Jӧe is a Swedish coffee house and cafe serving Löfbergs Lila Swedish coffee and teas, an array of Scandinavian treats and gourmet cafe foods.

First of all, I am in love with the look and feel of the space. It is clean and minimalistic yet plush and elegant. It almost made me forget where I was, like I had stumbled into a vacation.

They have a variety of seating options ranging from bar to bistro to dining to lounge. Sheer white curtains provide a feeling of privacy and intimacy from the bustling downtown streets just outside its windows.

We ordered at the front counter then made our way to a white round table with large purple wingback chairs and fresh orchids under a sparkling chandelier. This is now the only way I know how to enjoy a cup of coffee.

I went with the recommendation of the Swedish Pancakeswhen in Rome, right? They were similar to a crepe and topped with berry preserve, fresh berries, thick whipped cream and sprinkled with powdered sugar. I essentially licked the plate clean – so so good. While the iced coffee wasn’t as pretty to look at as the gorgeous hot coffee, it was equally fantastic. If you’re a coffee lover, make a trip! We also had an Egg & Cheese Croissant which was a buttery and delicious savory option.

I had my little one in tow and everyone was so lovely to her which is always a major plus in my book. She also tasted my meal and was trying to crawl across the table for more so.. EPB Jr. approves!

Johan’s offers a selection of baked goods, smoothies, coffees and teas, salads, sandwiches, soups and more. The decor lends itself to anything from a business meeting to a lunch date to girls’ coffee out. They have indoor and outdoor seating with a convenient location at Dixie and Fern.

I’m so glad I finally got a chance to stop in and experience Johan’s Jӧe! I recommend you do the same.
