Danish Cafe London – the Golborne Road for lunch…

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…

It’s HYGGE at Snaps & Rye on the Golborne Road…

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!).
