EDINBURGH'S HYGGE HUB, SODERBERG
From warming bowls of porridge to cosy evenings, it's safe to say that I'm a hygge convert.
Channeling my inner Dane, I've been reading Hygge: The Danish Art of Happiness and adding every scented candle you can think of to my home, all in a bid to bring more hygge into my life. So you can imagine my excitement when I realised, on a girly weekend to Edinburgh, that the city has its very own hygge hub.
Soderberg, nestled in Edinburgh's modern Quartermile development, is a cafe providing everything you need for the ultimate hygge experience. Filled with Scandi-style furniture and fleece covered chairs, the bakery offers a menu of freshly prepared breakfast and lunch items as well as health boosting juices.
I was lucky enough to visit Soderberg twice over the weekend, making a stop for a quick breakfast on Saturday and lunch on Sunday.
It was a hard choice between the cardamom bun or loaf of levain for breakfast but in the end I opted for the baked eggs alongside a carrot, ginger and apple juice. And I wasn't disappointed.
The following Sunday morning I moved on to the sourdough pizza topped with mozzarella and vine tomatoes, which was baked in the cafe's own pizza oven. I may not have chosen the most extravagant of toppings but this pizza is definitely in my top ten all time favourites.
With outlets across Edinburgh, Soderberg also offers a selection of sweet treats including mudcake and seven kinds of cookies so I'll be sure to pay another visit next time I'm in the city. Yay for hygge!
