Sweden has a couple of great traditional pastries. Semla, princess tårta, lussekatt and the best of all – kanelbulle, a Swedish cinnamon bun. I don’t know if you might have had one at your local IKEA, or maybe tried an international take on this Swedish classic. But I can tell you where to find the best one in this town, and possibly this country. And it’s also super convenient, because this bakery has 11 brick and mortar locations throughout the city.
So this place I’m referring to is called Fabrique and they specialize in sourdough bread. They make baguettes, loaves, rolls, rye breads and most importantly; pastries including cinnamon buns, brownies, shortcake, muffins and plenty more. They also have sandwiches, coffee and juices. Most of the shops have a small seating area for guests, but it’s more often than not just a small café table placed outside the shop window.
So let me get back to that cinnamon bun. I mean I have had hundreds over the course of my lifetime, but this is seriously as good as they get. This is crisp, chewy, packed with flavor, cardamom, cinnamon, sugar, of course with plenty of butter. The one with the largest seating area, and with a convenient location is at Fridhemsplan. But as I mentioned, you can find Fabrique bakeries at Kungsholmen (Scheelegatan 6,Drottningsholmsvägen 18), Vasastan (Odengatan 42, Odengatan 77), Södermalm (Långholmsgatan 27, Götgatan 24, Södermannagatan 23, Rosenlundsgatan 28,), City (inside K25 at Kungsgatan 25, Nybrogatan 6, Drottninggatan 85).
