[London] When I think of café experience minimalism, I cannot help but think of the cult favourite Nordic Bakery in London.

There is no doubt that antipodean style coffee shops have been all the buzz in recent years. The prevalence of Aussie and Kiwi coffee culture has all but taken over the London scene with an identifiable style that may not be everyone’s cup of tea.

Nordic Bakery, with locations in Golden Square, Cavendish and Dorset Street in London, offers a keen and stylish alternative.

A lovely, stripped back and simple Scandinavian-style coffee shop that does not bother with the fuss now associated with coffee drinking.

In a city so inundated with independent cafes trying to make their own specific mark on the coffee landscape, Nordic Bakery simply wishes to provide refuge for those who want to enjoy their brew in an atmosphere without the pretence and the noise.

However, you do not visit this establishment specifically for their coffee. They offer the bare essentials: a choice of teas (£1.80), a latte (£2.50), filter coffee (£2.30), cappuccino (£2.50), mocha (£2.90), and espresso (£1.60).

Nothing fancy, just what is expected.

But where they do excel is in their bakes and confections. Nordic Bakery boast a true reputation for utilising tried and tested recipes that hail from Scandinavia, items that can scarcely be found anywhere else in London.

Their bakes include Cinnamon Bun (£3.40), Berry Buns (£3.20), Butter Buns (£3.00), Skoleboller (£3.30), Apple Tosca Bun (£3.30), Almond Twist (£3.40), Oven Pancake (£3.40), Raspberry & Blueberry Oatbake (£3.40), Tosca Cake (£3.60), Tiger Cake (£3.30) to Mud Cake (£3.30).

£3 is about SGD5.30 or USD3.90.

Whenever I visit, I cannot help but order several portions of Karelian Pie (£2.30).

These are gorgeous pastries that originate from Finland, and are made combining a thin, crunchy rye crust with a filling of rich rice porridge or potato mash.

Lather on a blob of egg butter and you reach pastry heaven.

The mini cinnamon buns are also rather good here, a portion that is not too large to fill you up but just big enough to make you feel satisfied.

It almost goes without saying that Nordic Bakery use their own traditional recipe for their buns.

Depending on when you visit, you may have the opportunity to try anything from Nordic Salmon Soup to Lent time buns with whipped cream.

Their selection is diverse, always introducing new items to keep things interesting.

I would definitely recommend Nordic Bakery to anyone who is looking for a quiet, charming place either to work or socialise, where they can eat unique café grub that is always a topic for conversation
