Good evening beautiful people! I'm just on my way home after an exciting evening. I got to try Lagkagehuset in St. Stephen's Square, aka in England as Ole & Steen. This is a delicious chain of bakeries from Denmark, there are two or three in Copenhagen Airport alone! They make the most delicious pastries and I was jealous that my sister Andrea had discovered them here in the UK first. So since I heard about this a month ago, it's been my aim to try it out. So this was the perfect evening for it as I was catching up with this cutie.
It was just as delicious as in Denmark and the place was both practical (comfy bar stools with backs, charging points, handbag hooks, wifi) as well as stylish in the typical Scandi style. Of course, there were candles everywhere in the daylight for a true hygge feel.
They stay open till late which is great. I hate coffee shops that close at 5pm, I mean what's the point? I love coffee and I can have it late and still sleep, so why not have coffee shops open till late?! I bought a delicious loaf of chia and rye bread to take home.
And we had dinner, Katie a salmon and egg salad, and me, a roast beef open sandwich aka smørrebrød. It was fresh and tasty.
And of course we had to have desserts. I had a Tosca cake and Katie had a carrot cake, both yummy.
Katie never fails to amaze me, she's now signed up to a half marathon! It might be the motivation I need to try out a park run perhaps?! Who knows, I hate running! Are you good runners? How do you find the park runs? I know lots of people do them. We also had some interesting discussions about veganism, being eco friendly, whether it's ok to use animals for leather, fur and meat etc. Defo an interesting discussion that could probably go on for hours. What are your thoughts? Well she's inspirational for sure and that's why I love her, thanks for a lovely evening, real quality time!
Can't wait to go back to Lagkagehuset! Some of the staff were quite annoying and seemed a bit rude, not very warm and hospitable, but the beautiful interior and more importantly, the gorgeous baked goods, more than made up for them. Night!
