Curious Yellow

Hei, Hei!   The spirit of Sweden lives at the Curious Yellow Kafe, 67 Pitfield Street, Hackney. Swedish food, Swedish people, Swedish friendly. Well worth getting along there.





The cafe is named after the  1967 film I Am Curious (Yellow) (Swedish: Jag är nyfiken – en film i gult ) , meaning “I Am Curious: A Film in Yellow”). A second film “I Am Curious (Blue) was planned.  Yellow and Blue are references to the colours of the Swedish flag .

And just a few doors away at 77 Pitfield Street is Swedish cafe ‘Summer with Monika‘, again the title of a film, this time by Ingmar Bergman (1953).




Cafe ‘Summer With Monika’.  Hackney’s first ‘parklet’ has arrived outside.
