The Kringla Bakeri is located in the Norway pavilion of Epcot’s World Showcase.
Walk through the open door and you’ll find yourself in a quaint, Scandinavian kitchen.
It was recently refurbished and the layout makes much more sense for ordering. There’s covered seating out back for you to sit and enjoy your lunch.
Kringla Bakeri is best known for School Bread. This treat is a sweet bread roll, injected with vanilla custard, then covered with sweet icing and toasted coconut.
Ian had never tried School Bread before and was in the mood for a late afternoon snack.
I ordered a chocolate cupcake.
The School Bread recipe comes from a classic Norwegian snack (properly called “Skolebrød”), which kids took to school in their lunches and parents sold at bake sales.
The bread is a cross between a cinnamon roll and a dinner roll. It’s not super moist, more like a dinner roll flavored with cardamom.
We’ve tried it before and didn’t care for it, but Ian really liked it! 🙂
The Kringla Bakeri also features a selection of other traditional Norwegian pastries like lefse, and also a large selection of sandwiches, many of which contain some sort of fish or eggs.
There is lots of seating outside in the back, which is nice in the evening or when the weather is too hot. It was empty when we were there.
We’ve written two books about our time working and playing at Disney World.
Both are available on Amazon.com: Two Girls and a Mouse Tale and Adventures in the Animal Kingdom.

We always stop by and touch the troll’s nose for luck! ❤
