Longtime Clarksville bakery Swedish Hill (formerly known as Sweetish Hill) is back open again as of today, Monday, August 12, after undergoing the McGuire Moorman treatment. The bakery, restaurant, and market is located at 1120 West 6th Street.

The focus of the updated Swedish Hill has expanded from bakery to restaurant, as evidenced by an expansive new all-day menu (see the full menu below). Though there are still many breads and pastries (like focaccia, cakes, and weekend-only babka), dishes also include cheese and charcuterie selections, caviar, prix fixe dinner, and gelato. In what is becoming an MMH staple, there’s also a $24 rotisserie chicken to-go.

Given that McGuire Moorman co-founder Larry McGuire modeled the restaurant after New York’s famous bagel spot Russ & Daughters and Los Angeles’s Gjusta, Swedish Hill also serves bagels available with spreads or smoked fish, customizable sandwiches with condiments like burnt end mayonnaise, and sliced meats by the pound.

To drink, there are juices, coffee, tea, beer, wine, and nonalcoholic creations. Wine is also available for retail purchase, as well as cheese and other market items like herbs from Hausbar Farms.

Sweetish Hill Bakery first opened in 1975. It closed in September last year ahead of a revamp from McGuire Moorman Hospitality, which owns several casual-but-high-end restaurants around town, including Vietnamese Elizabeth Street Cafe and Clarksville neighbors Josephine House and Jeffrey’s. Overseeing Swedish is executive chef Page Pressley (previously of Emmer & Rye), along with McGuire Moorman’s director of baking Alex Manley and director of pastry Jenn Tucker.

Swedish Hill is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
