A Danish bakery chain is due to open on Chiswick High Road in place of the now-closed clothing shop Gap.
Ole & Steen Lagkagehuset has made a planning application to Hounslow Council for new illuminated signage at 260-262 Chiswick High Road, with permission requested as soon as possible.
The Danish bakery chain has over 90 branches in Denmark, England, and major cities such as Paris and New York. So far London boasts 14 Ole & Steen Lagkagehuset stores, the closest being in Westfield Shopping Centre in Shepherd’s Bush and Notting Hill.
Lagkagehuset translates from Danish as layer cake house. Here’s a taster of their ‘Summer Joys’ menu:
