Very nice lunch

We were walking round the city with our "daughter" and she had been to this restaurant before. We had a really great meal and it was not at all expensive. The only problem was that, as they were extremely busy (a good sign), they had too few staff on duty and they seemed to be rather slow. If... read more

Very cosy café combined with bookstore. Visited mostly by students so it's quite cheap for Copenhagen (under 100 dkk for brunch).

A very nice meal at a very reasonable price. Right in the student quarter so the place is full of young people. Line up to place your order and then wait for a while for the food to be delivered. It is well worth the wait.

All of those meals tasted amazing and I would have loved to try more things on their menu. However the main reason why I kept returning was the nice atmosphere and the fact... More

Really good cafe, high quality food with huge portions! Only slight negative is that it is always busy and it can be a bit of a wait when ordering. Will definitely be back.
