In Sweden, the country of its presumed origin, the cinnamon roll takes the name of kanelbulle (literally: “cinnamon bun”), and more recently the celebration of the sweet Scandinavian treat, popular for a ‘fika’, takes places annually, with “kanelbullens dag” – The Cinnamon Bun Day on the 4th of October every year.
Nordic Bakery – the most genuine Nordic bakery in London. Find the branch nearest to you and pop in every day this week, to test out the daily new limited edition style of cinnamon bun. Or just go with the classic version, like we do.
E5 Bakehouse – The Scandi cinnamon bun are handmade with love (and organic flour) on the premises. The result is a fabulously fluffy creation with crispy caramelised sugar on top. We just love E5 altogether.

Ole & Steen Lagekagehuset – choose between Danish style cinnamon swirl or cinnamon bun.
