Good news for lovers of aquavit and aebleskivers, Broder Söder, the newest edition to the Peter Bro Empire, opened yesterday, August 4, inside of the Scandinavian Heritage Foundation's Nordia House. Will the drive into deep Southwest, almost to Tigard, daunt diners? It turns out that there are more reasons to make the journey than just the smoked-trout hash.
The 10,000-square-foot Nordia House is both a community center and an introduction to the nations of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. Now, you can smear Broder's iconic Swedish pancakes with lemon curd and lingonberry jam after seeing a Danish folk music performance or an indie film about Finnish fjords.
According to The Oregonian in early July, Broder Söder will be a full-service cafe with counter-service. As you can see from the menu, the 35-seat Broder Söder will serve Broder's usual dishes plus something new: fika, a traditional Swedish coffee break with pastries and socializing.
Visit Broder Söder Tuesday - Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. until September, when it expects to add its delicious brunch to the repertoire.
