Thinking of visiting Copenhagen?
For a day, weekend or week Copenhagen has it all. Known for its delicious food scene you can find yourself spending your whole day going from restaurant to cafe to bar and back again.
From our trip to this city here are a few of our favourite places to eat:
BREAKFAST / BRUNCH
Mad & Kaffe
Most Copenhageners have Mad & Kaffe on their brunch bucket list. Located in one of Vesterbro’s hotspot locations, you can combine your own tasty breakfast plate by ticking the list of various breakfast possibilities.
The café is known for being an Instagram-darling with an aesthetic and colourful morning plate perfectly shareable – with a friend or on social media. Avocado with chili oil and baked almonds, cinnamon bun with organic chocolate on the top, yoghurt with muesli, macha tea and basil are just some of the small dishes you find on the menu.
Mad & Kaffe also offer lunch and bigger meals. You can order burger, salad or sandwiches. You can also sit outside and enjoy the glimpse of sunshine if the weather is up for it. In 2015 Mad & Kaffe won the price for Copenhagen’s best café.
The Union Kitchen
English “balls” are the focal point at The Union Kitchen – tasty meat balls that is – served in every possible size and with various fillings and in combination with a wide variety of sauces and sides, all with very favourable price tags.
Breakfast platters as well as salads are a big hit, and if you find yourself at the restaurant after a rough night out, try the Bartender’s Hangover Burger with a fried egg and a shot of Fernet Branca on the side.
The restaurant is located in Store Strandstræde, near the raw, yet polished Nyhavn. This old part of Copenhagen suits the décor of the restaurant, which mainly consists of newspaper cut outs from the 1930s, heavy iron chairs, wooden tables and retro lamps.
Granola offers freshly-brewed coffee, great creamy ice-cream, Summerbird chocolates and fruity milk-shakes from the good old days. Granola is also serving breakfast, brunch and dinner.
The place reeks with nostalgia. There is a priceless old coffee mill in the middle of the room, colourful enamel signs, music from the 50s and 60s, and an old counter from the long gone days of colonial trade.
There are often lots of people hanging out at Granola but that is just some of the charm being at Værnedamsvej.
LUNCH / DINNER
An eatery where you can relax, unwind and savor the moment.
Food made with pure ingredients and pure enthusiasm. Served with joy alongside good pours. In surroundings that inspire gleeful seduction and free thought.
Here, the evening and the menu is yours: The card consists of light savory dishes, slightly larger savory dishes and all things sweet – we recommend that you begin by choosing a few dishes, and if you have an appetite and a desire for more, you can simply order as you go. Because Geist is about pleasure. So come. Be part of it, be here, be welcome.
The Fish Bar is all about fish and shellfish. It’s about fresh, healthy, delicious food. About fine wine and a great atmosphere. We want to offer a restaurant experience, that in our opinion is yet to be found in Copenhagen and we strive to give our costumers relaxed, atmospheric and affordable experiences when visiting our restaurant.
The focal point is naturally the best fish and shellfish from the waters around us, but also when it comes to vegetables and other products are we looking for local quality. It is our ambition, as far as possible, to cooperate with retailers and producers who have strong opinions of taste, quality and sustainability.
A classic restaurant in the heart of the historic city centre in Copenhagen. We are a team of young, fresh minds, but our hearts beat for classic Danish cooking. We work with great respect for our nature and seasons, and we take pride in the gastronomic traditions of our country. Every day we honor those traditions by showing our guests that our gastronomic heritage is relevant, modern, tasteful and important.
Classic Danish smørrebrød – masterfully done. Beer and akvavit from small and large producers.
