The Swedish Bakery

5348 N. Clark St.
Chicago, IL, 60640, United States
TEL: (773) 561-8919

Since the late 1920’s, the Swedish Bakery has been serving European-style pastries, cakes, and breads inside a standalone red-brick building in Andersonville. The bakery’s interior is lined with glass cases brimming with homemade favorites such as cardamom braids, lemon rolls, cherry strudel, butter cookies, and marzipan, previously featured on Food Network’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate.” The cartoon-like marzipan frogs are particularly popular, as are the moist cupcakes and the traditional limpa bread. Seating is limited, so most patrons take their treats to go.

Insider Tip:

When you walk in, make sure to take a number. The paper numbers are for walk-ins, and the plastic numbers are for customers who have pre-ordered.
