A Scandinavian Covent Garden
After a long search, we’ve found a beautiful Flemish style building on Neal Street in Seven Dials, Covent Garden. It is the home of our fourth coffee shop. Its architectural features date back to 1806 and we’ve complemented these with our contemporary design to create a place where people can meet and talk with friends or colleagues and take a rest from shopping.
Covent Garden offers a wonderful mix of contemporary independent shops and restaurants – many of them are not found elsewhere in the UK. Many overseas retailers are choosing Covent Garden for their flagship too and the whole area has a grown-up, urban feel.

Walking around the area, we have noticed the Nordic influence everywhere and here are some of our Scandinavian favourites:
Gudrun Sjödén’s shop in Seven Dials has beautiful Swedish womenswear and home textiles but we have fallen in love with their Christmas decorations too.
The Moomin Shop is home to Tove Jansson’s loveable characters from Finland and their staff are super friendly and helpful. If you can’t find a gift there then we can’t help you!
At Kikki.K you can find beautiful Swedish designed stationery from Kristina Karlsson with inspirational quotes and pastel colours.
Another store in Seven Dials, RON DORFF has Nordic knitwear for men and Swedish Fjäll socks. Their “dad” text jumpers are this season’s perfect gift.
Sugar Sin, a candy shop run by two Swedes, isn’t just all colour and we like the range of gluten free sweets.
Sticks n Sushi, a Copenhagen restaurant group, is ideal for an early evening light meal combining traditional sushi and yakitori sticks from the grill.
