I've been away lately, so not so many London posts sadly, good news I’m back, bad news I still have this long backlog, quite interesting post of the travels. I got back to London and to be honest I’m in a coffee state of mind, I did the barista and basic workshop, been falling in love with the espresso perfetto! So I did a quick stop at the Nordic Bakery to catch up with Sarah.
The place with an obvious Scandinavian menu, rye bread, berry jams, salmon sandwiches, cinnamon buns Finnish style, and some coffee cakes. They have been growing, 3 locations, relax place, uncomplicated as they define themselves.
I got a cappuccino, Sarah and Will got coffee and a cinnamon bun to share. The coffee was good, good milk foam topped with a touch of chocolate, a bit too milky for me I like it stronger, they served it in a plastic cup even they knew it was to eat in which I didn't fancy too much, no latte art style sadly. The bun was pretty good.
Nice place, definitely relax type, no rush, not too loud, quite good to catch up with a friend, and enjoy some Scandinavian baked goods, sadly didn't see any smørrebrød, that would give a plus to the site.
All this Nordic experience reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Nose Job”
Elaine: Daddy certainly does have an extensive wardrobe
Landlord: He is a fine dresser and I'm sure I don't have to tell you he's quite popular with the ladies
Elaine: My father, really? I had no idea
Landlord: Yes, they're crazy about him. There was one in particular, came around about two years ago, looked a lot like you, Professor. Could have been your mother. What was her name again? Carter? Kramer! That's it, Babs Kramer. Nasty woman, many a night I had to throw her out on the street, drunken stumble-bum
Kramer: You don't say?
Elaine: I found it!
Landlord: The woman used to walk around here half naked, sucking Colt 45 from a can. Her big fat stomach hanging out, orthopedic hose up to her knees, screaming down the hall, Come back to bed, Albert, you big hairy ape, and bring back that box of Danish!
