When you’re passing by the Norway Pavilion in Epcot please do yourself a favor and stop by the quaint Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe. Small and unassuming on the outside, but mighty on the inside, this cute cottage has become a popular spot amount Walt Disney World-goers. You may have heard of this place before due to its famous school bread, but Kringla Bakeri og Kafe has much more to offer than just that!
Normally, Kringla hosts a variety of Scandinavian goods, including pastries, pretzels, sandwiches, assorted desserts, and Nordic beverages. Since the reopening, Kringla is sporting a limited menu for now, but may be restored to its full glory in due time. Worry not, because this menu still has delicious crowd-favorites available!
Here are some examples:
School Bread. A delectable, custardy, coconutty bun. What’s not to love? I don’t need to go into too much detail about it, because frankly, it speaks for itself. If you somehow haven’t tried one yet, please do!
Kringla. The bakery’s namesake is actually an item you can enjoy! While it’s not the bakery’s breadwinner (hah), it’s an extremely good snack choice as well. These are sweet, soft pretzels covered in assorted toppings, such as slivered almonds, chocolate drizzle, and cinnamon.
Lefse. A beautifully soft potato flatbread rolled up with cinnamon, sugar, and butter inside. It’s not fancy or intricate, just simply tasty, especially when asked to be warmed up. It’s not a universal favorite, so perhaps get one to share if it’s your first try!
Troll Horn. My second favorite item at Kringla! It’s a spiraled, crispy puff pastry made to look like a horn, and currently, filled with an orange marmalade cream. The flavor of the cream inside has changed a few times, so best try this one while it lasts! The troll horn is super fun to look at and eat, so it’s a winner in my book!
There are even more treats available than just these right now. When the menu hopefully/eventually expands to include its previous savory options, Kringla Bakeri og Kafe is an unmissable spot.
When the Disney Dining Plans return, I highly recommend Kringla as a golden place to spend some of your snack credits! So many of the items are valid, including the Kringla itself, which as of the time of writing this rings in at $6.29—a credit well spent!
The World Showcase is paradise for food-lovers, and Kringla Bakeri og Kafe is no different. It has yummy baked goods, refreshing draft beers, a quick and easy ordering station, and shaded seating out the back door (which cannot be understated—it’s Florida, after all.) When you are inevitably strolling by one day on your way to Frozen Ever After, take a moment to see the selection right there at Kringla. I definitely recommend it!
