Söderberg Bakery Shop Quartermile
Fantastic wee bakery chain with a strong Swedish accent.
There are three branches of the popular chain of Swedish artisan bakery shops now – in the West End, on Broughton Street and in the Meadows. The shops make an excellent, if slightly pricey pit-stop in the morning – the coffee is excellent and they do a great range of Swedish cakes and baking (they’re the go-to place if you’re a fan of cream-filled semla buns which are traditionally eaten in the run up to Shrove Tuesday.) Bread is delicious, and can be purchased in half sizes to take home. You can sit in at Broughton Street and Queensferry Street if you want to spend time savouring your chickpea and coconut soup or fluffy scone, but the focus is primarily on takeaway – seating is limited and there are no toilets for customers. Regulars and those addicted to accompanying a flat white with one of their fantastic almond-filled mazarin tarts should pick up a loyalty card – there are rewards in the shape of free coffees and lunches. The West End branch is now open on Sundays, and the Broughton Street branch has a lovely ice-cream selection (try their affogato and cardamon flavours) from springtime onwards.
