Stockholm is a popular destination for city trips. Built on 14 islands, each with its own identity, this beautiful city has it all: beautiful green parks, trendy shops, cosy markets, friendly people, loads of trendy restaurants and cafés, and … a booming bakery culture. Swedish bagerier are scattered throughout the city, dispersing a delicious scent of fresh-baked bread. Discover these six stars of Stockholm: the city’s hottest concepts in bakery and patisserie.
Rosendal’s Garden, or Rosendal’s Trädgård as it’s called in Swedish, is a ‘farm to fork’ driven market garden, orchard, organic café, educational playground, farm shop and bakery in one. The artisanal bakery produces ecologically friendly bread and pastries in its wood-fired oven. Everything is done by hand; without any shortcuts and with the best biodynamic and organic ingredients available.
This chain of bakery-cafés already has a dozen locations in central Stockholm. Almost all of Fabrique’s bakeries also boast a café. You can opt for a sit-down or a take-away snack at this popular venue, and enjoy fresh-baked buns, rolls and sourdough breads. Don’t miss out on Fabrique’s mouth-watering sweet delicacies!
In this cute candy store, girls dressed in 30’s fashion sell old-fashioned handmade candies and chocolates. With its lovely atmosphere, Pärlans Konfektyr is a must-go for lovers of high-quality confectionery.
The Green Rabbit
At The Green Rabbit rye bread bakery traditional craftsmanship is spiced up with new ideas and whimsy. The Green Rabbit bakes its organic rye bread every day and helps safeguard the future of rare Swedish grains by finding new ways to use them in bakery products. Apart from all sorts of bread and baked goods, The Green Rabbit serves breakfast, soup and a Swedish take on Danish Smørrebrød.
Curious about the famous Smørrebrød? Those buttered slices of rye bread that are hardly visible for their abundant toppings? Visit Östermans Saluhall, where you will find these famous Danish open-faced sandwiches from Nybroe in addition to all sorts of other delicious foods. This food hall hosts other hot bakery and confectionary concepts as well, like Vete-Katten and delicious chocolate from Betsy Sandberg.
