Lillebrors Bageri

Lillebrors Bageri is one of our personal favourites. The tiny bakery has a huge appeal. Famous for its 27-layer buttery croissants, the krämbulle and juicy cardamom buns, Lillebrors never fails to impress. These signature pastries, combined with their seasonal semlor, make every visit a treat. And if they have it, do get the toscabulle, a cardamom bun topped with caramel-coated nuts. The bakery’s cosy atmosphere, accentuated by its rustic wooden counter, offers a warm, inviting ambience.
