“Shopping”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Very down-to-earth shopping experience. The prices reflect the remoteness of it all. Greenland has lots of issues with sugar and fat and Brugseni which claims to give consumers advice on health in their magazines etc. still clings to the interiour layout that offers only sugar, candy and salty snacks chips closest to the cashiers. Not 2012. Very 1980.

“A store to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

There are all the Greenlandic specials offered here, including smoked moshus, whale and Greenlandic lamb and - of course - lots and lots of fish. But beware, alcohol prices are astronomic - and even sweets are quite expensive (due to governmental regulations). Nevertheless, you should visit the store, if only to take in the variety of Greenlandic food.

“Delicious bakery items to take out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011

Brugseni Nuuk is a large shopping complex on Aqqusinerquag in Nuuk, the capital of Greenland. When you enter the main entrance, the grocery store is straight ahead. Look to your immediate left and you will see this bakery. They have a wonderful selection of baked goods, including large sweet rolls of a wide variety. We purchased two for a special snack on a chilly day. One was a flaky roll with a delicious cream center with rich chocolate drizzled across the top. The other was a focaccia-style sweet bread with a butter-brown sugar (+ possibly a touch of cinnamon) covering the top and sunk into the depressions; wish I could get this one back home! In fact, I wish I could have tried one of everything I saw -- it all looked scrumptious.

Conveniently, the cash register is set up to automatically calculate the cost in your home currency, although you will get the change in Danish krone. No big problem. Not having to have local currency for such a small purchase is a bonus. Cost came out to less than 2 $US each (much less than in Scandinavia).

To eat our purchase, we carried our bag of treats to the upper level and sat at tables in the sky walk connecting the two buildings of the Brugseni complex. There was a small coffee shop adjacent. We think we did better to get the fresh pasteries from the bakery, instead of items from this small stand.

We found this place while in port at Nuuk one day from a trans-N. Atlantic cruise ship sailing from Southampton to NYC and though we would like to look at the selection of items in their main grocery store, which itself was of interest. If you like sweets from the bakery, or need a loaf of fresh bread for sandwich makings, look into this place. You will not be disappointed.
