It's not that cheap to go out for a coffee in Denmark. You also pay extra prices to items if you seat in. But that's just how it is. This place has great coffee, cakes and the whole place feels cozy. Recommended!

A decent hang out for brunch or coffee break. Giant sizes in warm och plush atmosphere. The menu is traditional sandwiches, brunch and also something for the sweet tooth. My hummus sallad felt like it was made up of a lot of not made in house ingredients, but arranged nicely on a plate. The hummus was not one I would... More

We were looking for somewhere authentically Danish for breakfast rather than the chains and found Penny Lane. A cosy and relaxed cafe with an excellent selection of pastries, cereals, teas and coffees.

Good delicious salads, the cafe well situated in the city centre but a bit too noisy and too little room between the tables

My sister and I have been here several times before and often it's very packed. Therefore we were so happily surprised when we visited during the carnival and could get realle great seats. We brought my 2 year old daughter who enjoyed a babycino and we had such a "hyggelig" time. Also they do soya milk at no extra cost.... More

Friendly and cosy place for a very different lunch experience. Having walked all around Aalborg and not been tempted by Macdonalds, Burger King or the numerous bars I was relieved to find Penny Lane. A large metal tea pot with 4 or 5 cups of tea to wash down an impressive salad platter with masses of amazing pork loin, preserved... More

We loved this place. Quaint, quirky and utterly enchanting, this is the best spot we found in a long weekend in Aalborg. The menu is an interesting mix of light but wholesome fresh food, with a very distinctive Danish theme...bread! This place is full of the aromas of beautiful breads and excellent coffee. The food is quite exceptional and the... More

I also tried humus sandwich but I prefer my sheep cheese and ham. great atmosphere but be ready to stand and wait a while to be able... More

This is my go-to place in Aalborg if I really want to get good quality bread and cakes. The baked goods cost a bit more than at other bakeries, but they are totally worth it. The cafe serves different types of sandwiches,brunch, salads and select tapas plates. If you are not form Denmark (and even if you are) you have... More
