....die of a Kanelbullar overdose at Linnea Bakery....
.... it's a hip new Norwegian bakery that just opened in downtown Kenosha.
As for my dying of an overdose, it probably sounds really morbid, but how can dying while eating Kanelbullars and being surrounded by cheery yellow walls and Swedish decor, be a bad thing??
Allow me to demonstrate.....
Kanelbullars: A delectable Swedish pastry that is a lot like a cinnamon roll, but better!
They are insanely DELICIOUS!! Do you see that pearled sugar on top?? Did you know they can have an Oooey gooey middle?!?
If I don't die from the Kanelbullars, I will die because their decor is killing me!!
NOTICE the antlers?!?!
And how COOL are these birds and branches on the yellow walls??
(Animal lovers, these birds died from a broken heart.
A life without delicious Kanelbullars can do that to a bird.)
This chandelier is not only the perfect little addition of sparkle, but it was also made in SWEDEN! How appropriate?!
How about some cool Nordic candelabras??
Cool AND meaningful antiques + a fresh and very "Swedish" shade of yellow = GENIUS!
What Swedish decor is complete without a hand painted Dala Horse??
I kinda want to sit on him. What?! I have a three year old!
Can you see why I'm in love?!? Do you see why I need larger pants?? Uff da!
If you aren't in the mood for sweets, there are also some authentic deli treats. I'm talking ham and Havarti sandwiches and light and delicious berry treats!
Of course, it doesn't hurt that the owners, Mark and Kim, are extremely friendly and have an insatiable thirst for Norwegian culture. I love that they are sharing authentic recipes with us! I have already learned so much about my own Swedish heritage just from visiting. Who knew bakeries could be so educational?
Soon to come, as if I can handle more, is their own special recipe Swedish coffee for sale by the pound. Wuh-oh!
This place is completely irresistible!! If you're a local or planning a trip to the area, it's a must!
