The “original” Nordic Bakery is located in the heart of “nice” Soho overlooking Golden Square. Whilst the traditional Scandinavian food may not be to everyone’s tastes what the bakery does, it does good.
There isn’t a huge amount of choice however all of the food is made fresh on site. The sarnies are served on dark rye bread, we tried the prawn and egg and a Karelian pie, a rye crusted snack filled with rice and served with egg butter. The sandwich was good, a little on the small side but for £3.80 it wasn’t bad given the quality of the ingredients. The pie was a little strange, nothing wrong with it just not to our taste.
To finish we had a latte and a cinnamon bun. The bun was served fresh from the oven, warm and sticky. This is one of the bakery’s signature offerings and it was huge, so filling we couldn’t finish it, a great breakfast option if you’re rushing to the office. The coffee was also worth noting as were the fresh organic juices.
We visited on a Thursday afternoon and there wasn’t a spare seat in the house. If you’re thinking of visiting why not check out the new Marylebone site, located just of the high street it’s a great place to enjoy an extended coffee break.
