"Scandinavian Kitchen" London: a cosy café & shop for Nordic goodies & coffee. I find that the smorgasbord combination dishes are the best deals for lunch.

Londoners seem to be crazy about anything Scandinavian these days. Nordic crime novels and TV drama boxsets, flat-pack furniture and ABBA CDs are now staples for many Londoners' homes. But for those who want to feel even more Scandinavian, where are they to go?

Scandinavian Kitchen consists of a cosy café in the front selling strong coffees, pastries, salads and open-faced sandwiches. I find that the smorgasbord combination dishes are the best deals for lunch (you can sample lots of different sandwiches for a lower price). When I am in the mood for just a snack, I tend to have a warm Swedish cinnamon bun with my coffee.

In the back is a small shop that sells Nordic goodies to many homesick Scandies or curious Londoners. Whether it's a bar of Daim, pickled beetroot or some frozen herring, chances are it will be here. Additionally the staff members are always happy to help with your food questions (and are known to give free hugs too). They were an immense help when I tried to cater a Eurovision party.

Located only minutes from Oxford Street, Scandinavian Kitchen makes for a perfect coffee break (or a 'fika' as the Swedes may say).

Petrie Museum – Mummy dearest

"Petrie Museum" London offers a much better chance to be alone with an Egyptian mummy than the British Museum. I like that they focus on smaller objects.
