We’re always in meetings in and around Notting Hill so when we heard that Danish cafe Snaps & Rye had opened, it was on our must-do list for lunch.
This Scandy day-time cafe was long in the making by local entrepreneurs Jacqueline & Kell Skött… their hair salon occupied this space for many years but it was always a dream of theirs to open a Scandinavian eatery to introduce their Danish food concept to London – it does not disappoint…
The open sandwiches known as smørrebrød …. are really so delicous (and healthy!), fabulous textured bread with some unusual combinations of toppings – five stars from us for the pickled herring with rhubarb relish all served on lovely ceramic platters (which you can buy in the shop)
There is a small deli area where you can buy a select range of Danish goodies + the range of handmade ceramics used in the cafe + Danish recipe books. There is a great range of books to trawl through while you have lunch (recipe book obsessives watch out!).
The good news is – From the 8th May SNAPS + RYE will be open on Friday evenings for FISKEFREDAG – Fish Friday. This is a set 4 course menu of fish and seafood for £35 per person including pudding and coffee. We’ll be there!
