Nordic Bakery – Get A taste of Scandinavia in London

Last Updated on 26/11/2023 by secretmoona

London is a bustling city with many small coffee shops and restaurants featuring cuisine from around the world. As a diverse and multicultural capital, London caters to every taste, whether you are in the mood for French, Italian, or Vietnamese food. If you desire Scandinavian cuisine, you are sure to find a restaurant within the city limits. Recently, I visited a trendy café called Nordic Bakery, which has been serving customers for 10 years and has three other locations in Central London. Here is my review of this popular coffee shop.

Nordic Bakery is situated in a peaceful corner of a trendy street near Chiltern Street. It is within short walking distance from the busy Baker Street tube station and is also very close to the fashionable and upscale Marylebone High Street. You can enjoy a cup of coffee in a serene environment at Nordic Bakery.

As you step inside, you will be greeted by a Nordic-inspired decor that features plenty of wood, dark colours, and bare walls. The minimalistic design, with only a few posters on the walls, creates a calming and relaxing atmosphere in the bakery. Despite its small size, the cafe/bakery is always bustling with locals and tourists of all ages. However, it still manages to maintain an intimate setting where people can have a meeting or a quiet conversation with friends.

After trying so many delicious Scandinavian pastries during my weekend in Copenhagen, I was craving a cinnamon bun and a nice cup of coffee. Luckily, the cafe I stepped into did not disappoint. The coffee was reasonably priced and tasted great, even by central London standards. The sticky cinnamon bun, which is considered the “star item of the bakery,” was also very tasty. The cafe was busy with many customers ordering coffee and cinnamon buns to go.

Besides cinnamon buns and great coffee, what other food items are available on the menu? I would like to know if there are any other options that I can try.
This place offers authentic Nordic cuisine, including sweet treats like blueberry and lingonberry buns and blueberry and rye muffins, as well as gluten-free pastries. If you prefer something savoury, they also have great salad options and delicious open sandwiches made with rye bread. You should definitely try the Gravadlax – a cured salmon with cucumber on dark rye bread – it’s absolutely amazing.

The staff are friendly and welcoming, so don’t hesitate to give it a try and stop by!
