Recently a Finnish friend of a Finnish friend has told me about the Nordic bakery in London’s Golden Square and after having tried their cinnamon buns-generously big in size and utterly delicious in taste, I now make an effort to go there if I want a treat to make my day .)
There is now another branch off Marylebone High street, cleverly hidden in New Cavendish street-blink, and you will miss it .)
The interior of the bakery looks very spartan-grey walls, simple wooden benches, tables and chairs. I have to say that while staff is very good-looking, be it boys or girls, they aren’t overly friendly or attentive-yesterday I was standing in front of the till, waiting to order while the staff served other people or talked to each other, pretending I wasn’t there. I don’t know if it’s me or their ‘cool’ Skandinavian attitude, as in ‘our food and coffees are sooo good, it’s worth waiting for’ but I was a little annoyed, and it’s not the first time that it has happened-owners, please rectify !!
You can buy dark rye bread, jams, juices, pancakes and of course, cinnamon buns, for takeaway or to have it in and their coffee isn’t bad either, plus looking around at the cool crowd is an eye pleaser, so it’s a win/win situation.
