Frantzen/Lindeberg is a really exciting restaurant, serving a "white menu" with a long list of ingredients but they won't tell you in advance exactly what you're getting. I have reservations there in a few days time, so I'll report back on that! However, they just opened a small bakery as well, and I had lunch there with Pia a few weeks ago. I had a baguette with cheese, ham, tomato, dijon mustard and raw red onions, and it was just perfect. For dessert, I tried a cardamom bun which was also really good but maybe a little bit on the over-baked side for my liking. The coffee was however pretty weird, and tasted burnt. Next time I'll go for tea, or hot chocolate. But I'll definitely go again, for the amazing, wonderful bread!
The atmosphere is nice too - it's a tiny hole in the wall, across the street from the restaurant, and the cooks constantly run back and forth to pick things up. They also serve a soup and salad every day, so you can have lunch there even if you're in the mood for something more than a sandwich. And of course, you can buy bread or baked goods to take home.
