About Us

Welcome to Grit Kitchen, where passion for great food meets a commitment to exceptional dining experiences. Our journey began in 2016 as Street Friends, a humble venture that quickly evolved into a beloved destination for delectable burgers in Karlstad.

As our popularity grew, so did our aspirations. In 2019, we proudly rebranded ourselves as Grit Kitchen, a name that reflects our unwavering dedication to hard work and the pursuit of culinary excellence.

At Grit Kitchen, we believe that exceptional meals start with exceptional ingredients. Our burgers are a symphony of flavors carefully orchestrated using the finest locally-sourced beef from the picturesque landscapes of Värmland. Each bite tells the story of our region’s bounty, and our commitment to supporting local producers.

For those seeking plant-based options, our creative flair extends to our vegetarian burgers, where handpicked mushrooms, crisp asparagus, and velvety halloumi are harmoniously blended to create taste sensations that resonate with every palate.

But Grit Kitchen is more than just a culinary endeavor; it’s a haven for community and connection. Nestled in the heart of Våxnäs, our restaurant space is a tribute to nature, with pallets, wood, and metal creating an inviting, outdoor-inspired ambiance that invites you to unwind and savor every moment

Our mission is not only to tantalize taste buds but also to foster an environment where every guest feels welcomed and valued. Whether you’re indulging in the rich umami of our burgers or relishing the vibrant atmosphere, Grit Kitchen is where memories are made and traditions are born.

Join us on this culinary journey, where innovation meets tradition, and passion meets plate. Grit Kitchen is more than a restaurant – it’s an experience that celebrates the flavors of Karlstad and the spirit of dedication that goes into every dish we serve.
