The Best Tarts are Swedish

Swedish Tarts Patisserie - Scab Cake

Swedish Tarts Patisserie – Scab Cake

Swedish Tarts Patisserie, on Semaphore Road, Semaphore, is my favourite café. Reasonable prices for unique food. They have a Swedish theme, with Elder-flower soda, and lots of smoked salmon and marzipan in their dishes (not at the same time!). I’m a fan of the Elder-flower soda. The picture at the top of this post is the Scab Cake. An ugly name for a delicious cake, with marzipan flavoured patisserie and chewy hazelnut based cake rounds alternately layered. Served with a dollop of heavy cream, it is perfection.

Aside from the wonderful cakes, all of which I would recommend, they have a yummy selection of flat breads. These flatbreads are baked in-house and filled with different combinations of ingredients. My favourite is the smoked salmon, capers, dill, cream cheese combination. Coming in second would be the parmesan, bacon, sun-dried tomato and rocket. I visit quite often.

Recently Swedish Tarts Bakery has opened, on Findon Road opposite the Fire Station.

This is a picture of the chicken and lentil pies served at the bakery. They also have magnificent cakes, and obviously closer to those who live south. They are definitely worth a visit.

All in all, a great way to enjoy a Saturday morning, with fresh food served in an interesting way. Highly recommended.
