Delicious pastries at Brød, the Danish Bakery

I realise I am extremely late to the party on this one! Brød, the Danish bakery, opened in Pontcanna/Canton a year ago and people were queuing out the door to try their wares. We talked about going but for one reason or another never went.

Depending on the route I take to work, I often pass Brød and on Friday thought I’d pop in to buy some pastries for the office. 

I was amazed at how big the place is inside, there’s room for a good few tables, they do breakfast and lunch as well as the array of baked goods on offer. 

I was offered a selection box of five pastries for £10, I could either pick the ones I wanted or they would give me a mixture, so I opted to let the lady choose for me. I thought £10 seemed a bit steep for five pastries but these were not your bog-standard croissants! 

Pastries from Brod

I have no idea what they were called but most of the pastries seemed to be a take on Kanel Snegl (cinnamon bun) The one I went for was a huge cinnamon swirl with custard in the middle and drizzled with chocolate. It was the nicest pastry I’ve eaten in Cardiff. 

I want to eat this all over again. Yum

My colleagues raved about them too, the box was empty by 9.30am! 

I’m already planning a trip back for lunch. Yum. 

I paid in full for my box of pastries from Brød, and the bakery was not aware that I’d be blogging about them.
