Fitzrovia: Scandinavia Kitchen
Start your day as they do up north with coffee and a kanelbullar, the famous sweet, dense bun flavored with cinnamon and cardamom. On a Sunday, try their freshly baked Danish pastries and you’ll be spoilt for life. On offer through the day but particularly popular at lunch is, of course, their daily smörgåsbord (3 items for £5.95, 5 for £8.95). Open sandwiches are freshly made; go for their Danish pork liver pate with honey pancetta on dark rye, or their wraps that range from prawns and crayfish to goat’s cheese with walnut and honey. There’s an array of tempting salads (new potatoes in dill vinaigrette, or red cabbage with lingon and pear), as well as a few hot dishes like the soup of the day and a meatball platter. It’s all served with brisk friendliness in this bright cafe/deli where homesick Swedes come to eat, chat and buy their groceries.
