Östersund is a café town, with a higher concentration than in most Swedish cities. Wedmarks is one of the more famous. The first smorgåstårta, or "sandwich cake," was created here in the 1960's. Another café worth visiting is Torners konditori, located on Storgatan 24, one of the best in Sweden. /Annica
