Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe

Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Green Loop. Today we are reviewing the quick service restaurants in Epcot’s World Showcase.

Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe has always been one of our favorite counter service restaurants in Epcot’s World Showcase. We haven’t visited in a while but I am really looking forward to stoping by on our next trip. Since the Norway Pavilion opens at 9:00 am now, thanks to the opening of Frozen Ever After, you can enjoy pastry for breakfast, a mid-day snack, or a something a little our of your comfort zone for dinner.

When you enter the bakery you feel like you’ve walked into someone’s kitchen due to the size and theming. As a result of that homey feeling it can get pretty crowded inside . But that also means the food is really good. I would typically advise you to eat at an off peak time to avoid the crowds but with Frozen Ever After being so popular there probably isn’t one. Seating is pretty limited. There are tables on the patio outside of the cafe but they can be hard to get when it’s busy.

Salmon and Egg Sandwich

At the Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe you can try Norwegian specialties. We’ve had the Salmon and Egg Sandwich (which is smoked salmon and egg), the Ham and Apple Sandwich (apple, Jarlsberg, and Muenster cheese with a sweet apple chutney on toasted multigrain bread). Of the two, if you want to try something different definitely go for the salmon. The no longer serve the vegetable torte that I loved but I’m looking forward to trying the Egg and Leek Pastry or the Jarlsberg and Onion Biscuit if I can get it without the bacon. 🙂

School Bread

School Bread

As far as pastries go, it seems like school bread, sweet cardamom bun filled with vanilla crème custard and topped with glazed and toasted coconut, is the most popular. It is really good, especially if you don’t like your desserts to be too sweet. My favorite though is the Troll Horn. It used to be called a cloudberry horn and has cloudberry jam with whipped cream in a crispy pastry sugar-coated shell. It’s yummy and still one of my favorite pastries at the parks.

Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe is the the only quick service location in the Norway Pavilion. Once upon a time there was a Scandinavia booth during Food & Wine but it hasn’t appeared in a few years. You can find some extra treats there during Holidays Around the World inside the bakery. There is also a beer stand at the front of the pavilion where you can get Einstock Ale (which is hard to find on tap outside of Iceland), Carlsberg beer (Danish beer), wine, Linie Aquavit Glacier Shot, bottled water, and soda.

    I love, love, love their Viking coffee! I’ve never tried School Bread, but I think I’m going to have to give it a try.

    What? There is food here? I never seem to make it that far (Germany always gets to me first) and it has been a long time since eating there. I do hear very good things but I think I may not even try the salmon and egg sandwich.

    A fantastic spot to grab lunch or just a quick snack.

    I tried the school bread and thought it was okay. A Troll Horn sounds like it’s more my speed!

    I have yet to try the schoolbread – I think because there are so many other thing in Epcot that have more appeal to me. Troll Horns, though, I love those. There’s a bakery near us that makes them, but I’ve never had one in the Norway Pavilion. We ate here a few years back and split several different pastries – they were all quite delicious!

    My husband LOVES salmon. So as soon as we enter the World Showcase our first stop is Norway.

    One of my favorite Disney memories as a kid was getting pastries to bring back to the Grand Floridian, getting stuck in a downpour, and my uncle screaming, “Drop the kids, save the pastries!” They’re THAT good! 🙂

    I love the cloudberry horns, but even more, I love the schoolbread!

  9. Mary@The Mouse Record on June 28, 2011 at 11:33 pm

    I too love the bakery, but never tried that salmon and egg sandwich. It looks interesting, I am always looking for new things so I am going to give this a try next time!

    Those horns look deelish!!

  11. Debs @Focused on the Magic on June 26, 2011 at 5:35 pm

    I love the bakery! I think it’s a good value too!! Mmm the fruit tart is my fave.

  12. DisneyBabies on June 25, 2011 at 11:17 pm

    Not sure what I said yesterday! I really wanted to try it last week when were there, but alas, didn’t make it! I’m most curious about the school but the vegetable tart and horns sound/look good!
