Lunch at Sherlock’s Monastery

Location: Klostergatan 16, Uppsala Recommendation: Dagens for lunch, Hamburgers for dinner

Lately Sherlock and his cher sidekick Watson have been having a moment in the pop-culture. Well, moment would be putting it mildly as it has been going on for half a decade now. Since the success of those big Hollywood movies, where Robert Downey Jr. let his inner Drag Queen out, and the sleeping hit TV series Sherlock, audience cannot have enough of this British dandy. So it’s understandable when new restaurants jump at the opportunity and try to cash in. Opened Spring 2014 Sherlock’s Monastery is a restaurant/pub combo that serves food with a bit of drama. There are elements of intrigue and suspense in simple dishes like Chilli con Carne or Fish n Chips that make Sherlock’s a welcome addition to Uppsala’s food circuit.

Lunch at Sherlock’s is a different experience from the rest of the go-to-joints near Kungsgatan. You won’t be served your meal before you even find a place to sit. Here you’ll be able to have lunch in calm and quiet surroundings. Help yourself with some salad and bread, put that phone down, and enjoy the company of your fellow dinner. Service is excellent and they go around with the bread basket and smiles.  Food takes a while because the chef puts extra effort on each plate to make sure it’s up to his standards. And really, the wait is worth it.
