Charming Scandinavian breakfast and lunch spot has been an Andersonville favorite for 60 years – The Scene
At this sunny, rustic storefront, traditional Scandinavian meat and potatoes dishes are the mainstay--plus what could be the best Swedish pancakes in the city. The decor of this friendly, old-fashioned place is distinctly Swedish: The dozen tables are covered with blue and white checked tablecloths, knicknacks and copper plates, while Swedish-inspired art and photographs adorn the weathered blue walls.
Try the Viking Breakfast--a feast of two eggs; crispy Swedish-style fried potatoes; bologna-like Falukorv sausage; toast and two light, crepe-like Swedish pancakes dusted with powdered sugar and served with refreshingly tart lingonberry preserves. Also on the menu: smorgasar (open-faced sandwiches like sliced hard-boiled eggs and anchovies) and the Three Crown Special of Swedish meatballs, salt pork and Swedish brown beans.
