In Tyresta there is a cafe and a village shop with grilled sausages. Please note that there is no grocery store. Outside the national park, a few lodgings are available for rent.
Tyresta village cafe
Tyresta’s cosy cafe is housed in Dahlgrensgården farm, which dates back to the 1700s. The cafe serves simple lunch dishes such as pies and soups, and lots of good pastries with coffee. Ecological emphasis, and home-baked; vegetarian alternatives available. Enjoy your coffee break outdoors or in the old horse stable. It is also possible to order a picnic basket for a wander in the woods. The cafe is accessible to wheelchairs. To see the menu and opening hours, visit the Tyresta village cafe’s website here.
At Tyresta Farm in the village there is also a small village shop where you can buy coffee, other beverages and lovely sausages to grill by yourself on the wood-fired grill just outside. Sausages of lamb and beef from the farm. Vegetarian alternatives and gluten-free sausage rolls also available.
The store also sells raw lamb and beef, lambskins and, when available, eggs from ducks and hens. On the shelves can be found Swedish products, including local and for the most part hand-produced ecological products such as honey, preserves, sweets, juices, skin care products and artistic handicrafts.
