Local brunchers have a long-running love affair with this trio of Scandinavian cafés, which lure with cozy hygge grub (years before we knew hygge was a thing). Settle in for a baked scramble with gravlax or smoked trout, served in handsome skillets next to sides like roasted apples. Everyone comes for aebleskivers, golf ball–size puffs of batter baked in a special pan and served with homemade lemon curd and applesauce. Each location has its charms, but Broder’s Southwest outpost inside evergreen-fringed Scandinavian Nordia House excels with a Swedish coffee break pastry menu holding kanelbullar, cinnamon knots baked fresh each morning, flavored with cardamom and showered with pearl sugar.
