Welcome to the final post in our Walt Disney World Bakery Throw Down challenge! We’ve showcased four bakeries since mid-December, and today we proudly present Epcot’s Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe!
Kringla Bakeri is located in the Norway pavilion of Epcot’s World Showcase. Walk through the door and you’ll find yourself in a quaint, Scandinavian kitchen — well, yourself and about 50 other people. It always seems to be crowded in there!
There is shelving on the wall holding salt, sugar, flour, and spices; iron candelabras hanging from the wooden ceiling; and painted tiles set into the brickwork on the bakery floor.
And, of course, you’re surrounded by good things to eat, situated on large plates in glass cases. Once you make your determinations as you walk by the cases, you’ll end at a cash register. Seating is available in a covered area next to the register and also outside.
Kringla Bakeri is best known for School Bread, a sweet, donut-like pastry filled with vanilla custard.
But there’s lots more to try!
Upon walking into the bakery, there are several sandwich options, savory and sweet pretzels, pastries, and more available for your choosing:
The Norway pavilion also used to be the home of the cult favorite Rice Cream, but I haven’t seen it around lately. I’ll add a photo of it anyway, since Brett had such a nice one!
Add to this your favorite warm drink — is a Kafe, after all — and you’re all set for a relaxing break from walking all day in the Florida sun (or from the freezing weather, if you’re there this week!).
