This bakery was mentioned in a couple of articles that we found – apparently it is a favourite of Claus Meyer, chef of Noma, according to an article in the latest edition of the Monocle. We thought we’d try it out – we went to the sandwich shop at the department store Magasin and we went to their bakery shop on Store Kongensgade to try it again.
At the sandwich store in Magasin, we had a great tuna sandwich – I think that bread is perhaps the most important component to a sandwich, and this was great bread. Crispy crust, soft filling, with great sandwich fillings. D had the mueslibread, which was comparable to the mueslibread we had at Lagkagehuset. Good all around.
But then I went to another one of their bakeries to try out some of the breakfast foods, and I have to say I was very disappointed. I had a blackberry muffin that was oily and too short on the blackberries. This was a muffin I would expect to eat in a hospital cafeteria.
I also had a chocolate croissant – it was doughy and had a measly small strip of chocolate in the middle. Overall, a poor showing on the breakfast foods – I really can’t recommend it for this, unless you’re looking for generic breakfast goods that you could get in any coffee shop in North America (and if you’re reading this blog, chances are that’s not what you’re looking for).
But the sandwich? The sandwich was great.
