Danish bakery gives Cardiff new flavour

Cardiff’s first Danish bakery has seen a great success since opening its doors earlier this month.

The bakery and café called Brod opened in Pontcanna on 3 November.

Betina Skovbro aimed to give the bakery a homely yet Scandinavian feel with its light wood exterior

It combines Welsh and Danish culture by baking authentic breads and pastries with ingredients sourced locally from Cardiff and South Wales.

The new bakery has seen a huge response from the community with members queuing up outside to buy their baked goods.

Manager Ben Davies said, “The response we’ve had has been amazing. We’re selling out quite fast with things.”

“Our most popular pastry is the Spandauer“, said Mr Davies, “which is a Danish Crown with custard and jam.”

“Our Rye bread was also a massive surprise – it flies out! Lots of people come in and they know they want Rye bread.”
