Nestled just off Oxford’s bustling High Street, Skogen Kitchen is a independent forward-thinking Scandinavian café that’s the perfect place to pause and refuel. The first thing you notice when you enter this cosy cafe is the delicious smell of warm buns loaded with cinnamon and cardamon. Breakfast, brunch and lunch is served all day until 4pm and includes dishes such as the Skogen brunch, featuring Scandi cheese, home-cured gravadlax, beetroot salad, egg, tomatoes, cucumber and cloudberry jam. The quality of the ingredients stands out; British produce is combined with specialist items imported from Scandinavia. For lunch, try the popular homemade meatballs, served either the traditional Swedish way with potatoes, cream sauce and lingonberry jam or in a satisfying sandwich. All cakes are homemade and traditionally Swedish – perfect for afternoon fika, an important Swedish ritual where you take time to enjoy coffee, cake and good company.
