One of the quaintest and most charming of the many foreign restaurants in Tower Town. It is a high-class Swedish peasant restaurant and the foods are delicious and wholesome. You help yourself to all the appetizers you want — sardines, herring, cheese, olives, celery, salad — from the smorgasbord, or Swedish hors d'oeuvres table. Prices are reasonable and luncheon and dinner are served. The room is appropriately decorated with Swedish objets d'art and the blonde waitresses are in costume. Delaware 1492.
