Laundromat Cafe, Gammel Kongevej 96, Frederiksberg
The photographs definitely do these blueberry pancakes so much more justice than I could with words (adjectives for food just don’t come that naturally to me….tasty, delicious…bore you to death). And they were covered in butter AND maple syrup – hit all your food groups (sugar and fat) in one instance. YES. Don’t get that beach body for nothing.
Cafe Norden, Østergade 61, 1100
The wonderful Camilla Ackley from Into The Fold (which by the way you should definitely be reading the new ITF magazine – some of my writing is on there too!) recommended Cafe Norden to us and we were not disappointed. I had the famous Danish open-sandwiches Smorrebrod and they were SO much nicer than I imagined. DO IT.
Granola, Værnedamsvej 5, 1819 Frederiksberg
Granola was directly opposite our Air BnB apartment so we were very lucky in finding one of the best breakfast locations so close to our beds. We both opted for the pastries and porridge with apples, cinnamon and lots of brown sugar (I’m not sure if the sugar makes the healthiness of porridge irrelevant…?)
Da Salvo, Gammel Kongevej 41, 1610
Do you ever have those evenings where you just want to take off all your make up, lie on the sofa listening to Taylor Swift and watching the Inbetweeners? Well we had exactly that, but with no emergency fridge stash, had to find food nearby. Out in our pyjamas we discovered Da Salvo and it was PERFECT. Such a find.
Copenhagen Street Food, PapirØen, Trangravsvej 14, 7/8, 1436
Now don’t get me wrong, this market is fantastic. HOWEVER we had some serious trouble getting there. Long story short – it is on the other side of the river by the popular tourist destination. So you can see it, you just can’t get to it (they are in the process of building a bridge but not quite soon enough for us). So instead of getting on the wrong boat, and ending up 10 miles down river (ahem) just ask someone. Preferably someone who looks kindly on English speaking fools.
Rist Kaffeebar, Værnedamsvej 4B, 1619
On our last day in Copenhagen it gave us a good old English weather forecast, drizzly rain all day. So we wiled away some of the hours in this lovely coffee shop. Tiny in proportion but with perfect interiors (those Danes are so much stylish than their Swedish IKEA friends) and with lots of lovely teas to choose from.
