Danish bakery Ole & Steen is set to open a third UK site in Canary Wharf, London, British Baker can confirm.

The site, which is 2,500sq ft, will be opening at the award-winning Crossrail Place, the most recent leisure development in Canary Wharf, which already houses a diverse range of dining options.

The bakery will serve freshly baked breads, including many varieties of rye bread, pastries and traditional open sandwiches.

The Danish bakery will be also be opening a site in Richmond from May this year and opened its first UK site in November 2016 at St James’ Market, London.

Ally Gordon, UK operations director for Ole & Steen, told British Baker that he was very happy with how the St James’ Market bakery was going. As a result, the company had been looking for other, special London locations.

“It’s an exciting opening for us,” he said. “Crossrail Place is perfect for Ole & Steen because it’s rapidly become a vibrant shopping and dining hub for people living and working in and around Canary Wharf.”

Stuart Fyfe, head of retail leasing for Canary Wharf, said: “We’re extremely excited to welcome Ole & Steen to Canary Wharf as part of its continual evolution and expansion.”
