Longtime Andersonville bakery carrying all the classics.

Our Review

This famous Andersonville bakery has been around since the 20s; the Stanton family has run it since 1978. German-trained pastry chef Marlies Stanton also brings some French influences to the offerings here, many of which are classic Swedish favorites. Sweet items include julekaka, a bread full of cardamom, candied fruit, and raisins; drommar ("dreams"), small, round melt-in-your-mouth butter cookies; and pepperkakor, ginger cookies shaped into hearts. There's a Stockholm limpa, a sweet rye bread flavored with ground fennel, and bullar, plain or cardamom-spiced soft tea rolls. Skorpa, also known as rusks, are made from day-old bread that's sliced and slowly baked until crisp, then served with coffee. The list goes on, with seasonal pies, streusel coffee cakes, Danish sweet rolls, and log rolls in flavors like strawberry, marzipan, and lemon. It's always crowded here, and most customers are regulars.
