Wikstrom's is relocating from its previous address at 5247 North Clark. This location will open in early 2008.
You can't fully partake of Andersonville's Scandanavian gems without a stop at Wikstrom's (between 500 and 1,000 Swedish tourists visit the spot each year). Dozens upon dozens of varieties of chocolate litter Wikstrom's shelves, and with a few cups of the free coffee (what a lovely discovery!), this Scandinavian deli and grocery store is a sweet tooth's paradise.
But don't discount the hot food: Take a seat at one of four tables and try a plate of the sweet Swedish pancakes with homemade lingonbery sauce or go all-out with an order of the juicy meatballs, mashed potatoes and gravy. With made-to-order sandwiches and cold salads for sale by the pound, you could easily turn your trip into a picnic smorgasbord. Don't forget to pick up a big package of Norwegian smoked salmon to go; it's some of the best in town.
