So we were there to buy some of that delish bread. I don't pass by this place very often as it is quite a detour to get here (which I guess is good in many ways). C decided he wanted a cup of coffee and a cardamom bun right away. I said I would not have one to begin with but then I had one bite from C's cardamom bun and I just HAD to have one.
It is strange how something so simple can create such wonderful experience. I felt I was taken to heaven for each bite I took. The only negative thing is that I will always compare my cardamom and cinnamon buns to the ones they sell here and very few others match up to the ones at this bakery. Here they manage to make them soft and chewy on the inside and crispy on the outside. They are just perfect in every way. So I made an exception to my rule as this is far from any kind of everyday experience and happening.
There are plenty of sweets of all kinds sold here in the many bakeries and coffee shops. Macaroons are very popular here. Cupcakes are also growing on the Swedes but still they will have to work on the art part of the cupcakes to reach the beautiful creations that you can find in the US.
At this place I also saw that they were selling these cute small glasses with pannacotta. But something that Swedes are consuming like crazy for the moment is Semlor, buns with cardamom and filled with almond paste and whipped cream. The offical day for the Semla is March 8th but people have started having them ever since the beginning of January.Personally I would much rather have another one of those cardamom buns from my favorite bakery in the whole world.
