If using the glass café image better put on it: Soderberg Pavillion (they don’t have an image of the new Broughton St bakery)

Artisan Swedish bakery Söderberg is best known for its transparent glass café designed by Foster & Partner, in the Quartermile’s North Pavilion. Now the Söderberg empire has expanded with a new bakery shop in Broughton Street where its sumptuous-sounding Swedish specialities – Kladdkaka (chocolate mud cake), kanelbulle (cinnamon bun) and chokladboll (chocolate ball) – continue to attract crowds. Söderberg Pavilion Café, open from 8am, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch, 1 Lister Square. Söderberg bakery shop, 45 Broughton Street, www.soderberg.co.uk
