About us


A little taste of Sweden in Adelaide.

We now have three locations open, our bustling seaside patisserie in Semaphore, our brand new café in Henley Beach, and our very own bakery in Findon where all of our products are baked fresh daily with lots of love, passion and butter.

The bakery is also open to the public where we serve excellent fairtrade organic coffee, breakfast, lunch and sweet or savoury tasty treats inbetween.

We have most of the pastries you know from your Scandinavian holiday and we do all the traditional and seasonal treats such as Semlor for easter, Lussekatter for Christmas and the iconic Prinsess Tårta for special celebrations.

We specialise in traditional and not so traditional breakfasts that are available all day as well as light lunches and dinner. A must try is our homemade giant swedish meatballs with creamy onion gravy, mashed potato and lingon berry jam. Yum!

Our menu is built on inspiration from the Swedish kitchen and fused to fit in with modern Australian taste buds as well. Our more adventurous customers will not be disappointed by some of the more uncommon dishes we have to offer.

We also sell wholesale cakes, tarts and pies in the Adelaide area, please email or phone the bakery for inquiries.

We hope to see you soon and mycket Välkommen!!

The Advertiser Food Guide 2013, 'Featured cafe's in Adelaide' - Yes, it really does live up to it's name thanks to its selection of seductive tarts and cakes, but the specialty of this bustling cafe is really pancakes... Who could ask for more?

04/10/12 - We now have a loyalty card for all our coffee loving customers out there ;-) just ask at the counter next time you're in

Sydney Morning Herald, '5 best cafe's in Adelaide' - Some people just can't make it past the gorgeous Swedish cakes and pastries but the menu always has good savoury dishes, too. Breakfast is a local institution, the coffee good (by the bowl, in Swedish style) and the beach is nearby for a stroll.

SA Life Magazine - Swedish Tarts offers a tantalising range of cakes that include banoffe tarts, Sarah Bernadt cake with chocolate ganache, Swedish postkakan and the dense custard filled scab cake.
