Selma’s Amsterdam: for Swedish treats and good coffee

AT SELMA’S AMSTERDAM YOU TAKE A FIKA: THE SWEDISH COFFEE BREAK

Selma’s Amsterdam is taking the beautiful Sweden to The Netherlands. Founder of Selma’s Nordic Bakery Café, Anna, decided to introduce the Swedish coffee break, Fika in Amsterdam as well, and we are completely okay with that. During your fika, which is done about 2 times a day, you drink a cup of coffee around 10:00 and 15:00, ánd have some Swedish goodies. These fikas are mandatory in many Swedish companies. It not only ensures that you have less stress, but that you’re also more productive.

YOU WANT TO TRY THE CHOKLADBOLLARS AT SELMA’S AMSTERDAM

At Selma’s Amsterdam you can get a really good cup of coffee from coffee roasters Stooker, and Swedish treats in the cosy, Scandinavian livingroom. This is a true paradise for those with a sweet tooth. Selma’s Nordic Bakery Café specialises in the well-known cinnamon buns (Nordic buns), coffeebuns (semlor) and the delicious chocolate balls (chokladbollar). These chocolate balls are so good that I ate them every single morning during my study abroad in Denmark, so tasty!

Are you more into savoury snacks? Selma’s Amsterdam also has ryebread, knäckerbröd, burgers made with moose meat, Nordic meat, and salmon.

From early in the morning till nighttime you can go to Selma’s Amsterdam on the Jan Van Galenstraat. When the fikas have done their job the mugs are traded for cocktail glasses that are filled with G&T’s with French gin. The Swedish know all too well how to get through the day. Secretly we’re a bit jealous of the Swedish. Though now we can go to Selma’s Amsterdam for a good dose of Swedish that we need everyone once in a while, nice!
