Restaurants & cafés

In Sälen there are plenty of cafés and restaurants that are open in summer.

Våffelstugan in Hundfjället

At the end of Trollskogen enchanted forest you will find Våffelstugan. The cosy log cabin serves waffles, hot chocolate, coffee and pastries in front of the open fire.


The Gammelgården restaurant, known for its wild game meat, has become a popular classic far beyond Sälen. Here you can enjoy delicious poultry, fish and wild game from northern Sweden - a true dining experience. This year, Gammelgården was even nominated as the Wild Game Restaurant of the Year.

For lunch, enjoy a really classic dish at Gammelgården! The Waffle Hut, dating back to the 1600s, was moved to its current location in 1945 from Malungsfors to Högfjällshotellet as a destination for the hotel’s guests. They’ve used the same waffle recipe for 100 years. And of course it's a secret... But we’ll give you a hint: we use sparkling water in the batter.
