This cool café is a fantastic pitstop for Scandi-style sandwiches and sweet treats.

Branch of the Soho original. Has an identical menu and similar look. Like the original, it has seasonal specialities, such as the semla pictured above.

I had such high expectations for the Nordic Bakery. Sadly though, they didn't quite live up to them - at least not on the savory side.

Located in a cool, industrial-style retail space, this is certainly a good spot to work in. About 8 tables maximum, which seat maybe 20-30 people comfortably, it's also quite quiet (minus the ususal coffee-making sounds) make it nice and spacious, as well as having huge windows with lots of natural light and high ceilings.

The counter is disappointingly tiny - although the sweet treats look gorgeous, the savory side of things is lacking imagination. Maybe not needed, as anyone loves a good Nordic salad or sandwich, but for £5.10 I'd expect more than half an untoasted salmon bagel with the thinnest layer of salmon I've ever seen. Tasty, mind you, and genuinely different bread and fish, but way too pricey for something that definitely won't be enough for lunch.

Coffee and tea selection is also fairly limited, but they cover the basics.

Unfortunately I came for lunch so only sampled the half-gravadlax sandwich and left hungry. I think this is more of an afternoon tea and pastry kind of place - and yes, I will definitely go back to sample the sweet treats. So, pretty standard and quite pricet café, all in all.


Nordic Bakery is a nice little cafe - fairly quiet and off the beaten track of Baker St. Nice cakes and bakes - and the teas and coffees ain't bad either. I like the vibe and I also hear they do a mean sandwich for lunch - although I have not yet sampled.  

Great atmosphere and very welcoming. A neighbourhood establishment with friendly staff who create real camaraderie amongst the locals. And who could resist the cinnamon buns and cracking coffee?
