“My Swedish Wife was in Nirvana”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

Almost every morsel of food was met with my wife's approval - authentic and tasty. Admittedly, it's not my fare but it has become part of any trip to SSM. The service is impeccable, served in Swedish ambiance.

“A Charming Bit of Finland in The Soo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2008

We just had another great meal at Taste of Scandia.

Whether it's a breakfast of Finnish Pancakes (crepes), Tuula's Breakfast Sandwich (a work of art), their very own meat pies, a bowl of HOMEMADE soup, a sandwich on fresh baked bread or the delight of one of the restaurant's "theme" dinners, we always leave knowing we'll return!

We've attended several of their "theme" dinners - Austria Night, Christmas Dinner, Germany Night, Russia & Poland night. They've all been marvelous!

Valentine's Day brought a "Lover's Lunch" and St. Patrick's Day means a planned Irish Lunch on Saturday March 15th. (They're closed on Mondays.) Easter is coming and it will be celebrated Scandinavian-style. We've already made our reservations !!

This cafe is a thriving bakery, too. Stop by in the morning for freshly baked Pulla (Finnish Coffee Bread), Cinnamon Buns, or any of a variety of cookies and specialty breads - all baked on site. Take a loaf or two of Pulla - regular, with cinnamon, with raisins, with poppyseeds, or "fancy" - with you - everyone will LOVE you!!

Have a special request?? Looking for diabetic, gluten free or spelt baking. Just ask. Chances are they have some!

I have seen the most AWESOME birthday cakes, sandwich platters and plates of sweets come out of there!!

The ladies greet you like an old friend - it feels like "home". I cannot say enough good things about Taste of Scandia.

When you visit The Soo, stop in. They're located right downtown at 356 Queen Street East - just a stone's throw from the Station Mall, Steelback Centre and many major hotels. There's lots of parking in the area - a municipal parking lot is right in back.
