Fodor's Review

The North Side's Andersonville neighborhood, once a haven for Swedes, plays host to the humble Svea, a Swedish version of an American diner. There are Swedish pancakes with lingonberries and Swedish rye limpa bread with eggs in the morning; lunch means Swedish meatballs and open-face sandwiches. The digs are no-frills, but the service is almost unvariably friendly. The locals love it.
