The owners of the very popular and charming cafe Liebling are these days opening a second place around the corner. It´s named after a popular children's song, Kanskje kommer kongen ( Maybe the king will come). Lovely as they are, they want to unite the city's young population with the elderly by running a cafe inside a retirement home. What´s not to like, I think the king should come!
