American Diner in a historic Swedish setting

It pops up like a mirage along route 190. Just outside Lerum, between Gråbo and Alingsås. With American flavors, Swedish ingredients, authentic craftsmanship, and international seasonings. Nellie Nilsson has created a Swedish-American joint with a fancy exterior and a quirky interior, good old-fashioned cooking and natural ingredients, a no-waste philosophy, and delicious food and drinks.  

The best from here and (over) there.

American flavors, Swedish ingredients and international spices, with a menu that adapts to the season and mood. Our burgers are made with meat from the Kilanda estate, the brioche bread is baked in our bakery and the potatoes for our deep-fried potato wedges are grown in Alingsås. Of course, we make the accessories and dressings ourselves. Sometimes we have a Texas chili stew with meat from Kilanda Säteri. The dough for our pizzas is cold-fermented for a long time, with freshly ground organic flour from Wästgötarna and lots of love! Many of our vegetables come from farms nearby!

No waste, with high ambitions and local ingredients

Nellie’s is a place aiming high when it comes to food craftsmanship and ingredients – for anyone who loves food and drink. Here the focus is on local and seasonal, and most things (yep, even the ice cream) are produced on-site in our own kitchen and bakery, using ingredients sourced from the area. 

A seed was planted in Florida

An old chevy parked outside tempted Nellie and Tommy into Cody’s Roadhouse in Crystal River in Florida. When Nellie caught sight of the old petrol pump handles on the entrance door she uttered the prophetic words which would change their lives: 

“We should open a joint like this in the Swedish countryside.”

Petrol station and country store from 1905

Shop over the counter in this classic country store built in 1905. The petrol station and shop were run by three generations of the Hagström family and this well-stocked and cozy shop is for many an important and pleasurable stop on the retro trail along route 190.

More stops along the retro route!

Nellie’s Diner is situated like an oasis along Sweden’s route 66 – route 190. This road is also called the retro route thanks to its special route through the countryside and all the genuine, retro-inspired, businesses along it.
