What, you’ve not been to Skogen Kitchen yet? Here’s why you really should.
1 – The Food
Skogen Kitchen serves beautiful home-cured and high-quality salmon, homemade granola, in-house baked treats, waffles, Scandi-breakfasts, open sandwiches, whopping great salads and tarts. Got your interest?
There’s more too, including Danish fishcakes and meatball sandwiches. Yummy! There is also a beer and wine menu, with the wine having been carefully selected with the guys from Oxford Wine Company.
2 – The Calm
Skogen Kitchen is an oasis of Scandi-chic. Crisp white walls, cool greys and spruce tree vistas meet minimalist comfortable seating. There are some sockets and WiFi if you need them – it is an ideal zen space for creativity – or just switch off those notifications and relax.
There’s even a Pippi Longstocking corner to play with!
3 – Location, Location, Location
Sitting alongside Barefoot and Sandy’s Piano Bar on King Edward Street, Skogen Kitchen is just off the High Street in what was the old Mission Burrito shop. Slap bang in the centre of town and a stone’s throw from Carfax bus stops, it even has a handy bunch of bike racks just outside.
Perfect for a spot of morning Brunch on your way into town, a central lunch stop or mid-afternoon treat.
4 – Support Independent
It’s often hard to see beyond the chains in Oxford, so it’s important to support the independent businesses who are trying to make their mark – and this is no exception.
Skogen Kitchen is a new venture for Leiths trained owner Claire Andersson, whose inspiration came from her Swedish husband and food they have enjoyed together. Having built up a reputation catering weddings, supper clubs and dinner parties, Claire is now bringing her wonderful Scandi treats to the Oxford masses.
