Deseo means "wish", or "longing", in Spanish. To me, the word represents a wish that has now come true: the desire to open up a place of my own.
I hope to be able to express my joy over this in all the different things you will eat and drink at Deseo. I hope every bite and every sip will bring you pleasure! Everything here is home made, home baked, and always made with lots of love... I'll make an effort to find and prepare as many options as possible for gluten and lactose intolerants too, so you can all enjoy the home made and home baked items on the menu.
We use the most organic, fair-trade certified, and local products we can find, to take better care of the environment!
We have partnered up with Brunkebergs Bageri, who supply us with wonderful, fragrant, masonry oven baked sourdough bread and chocolate croissants (which will end up putting something like a thousand pounds a month on me... they're lethal...). We also collaborate with Johan & Nystroem, who supply us with their fragrant, freshly roasted, and simply awesome coffee and tea, all organically farmed and fair-trade certified.
We'd like to welcome you all to visit us at Deseo on Norrtullsgatan 51, for a short moment's relaxation, a quick (or leisurely) breakfast, a nice espresso, home made cakes of every variety, something tasty (we'll try to have something for everyone), or simply a nice lunch. We'll mix things up every week or so until we feel we've connected with the taste buds of Vasastan. We want everybody who visits us to feel at home, feel important, and most definitely feel welcome!
We've been awarded a recommendation from WhatsupSthlm.se, and you can read about us on their website by following the link below:
We also received a tweet's worth of praise from Katrin Wellenberg, who runs a PR and Media Agency in Germany, with an emphasis on tourism, amongst other things. She loved our web site, and asked me if I'd let her write about us in her blog. What do you think I answered her? YES, of course... And here's the result: http://culturedepicted.wordpress.com/2010/07/20/coffee-and-the-city/
