If I lived in Copenhagen I'd quickly become a regular at this bustling and cozy restaurant. It always seems busy with locals and tourists alike, and has a very inviting atmosphere. While the dinner I ate there- vegetarian lasagne cooked with heaps of cheese- was nothing special (unfortunately there is not a great range of dishes for vegetarians) the breakfasts... More

It's such a warm and cosy cafe. I would come all the time when I studied abroad in Copenhagen. It's perfect for studying alone, with friends, or a date. The food is really good and the warm drinks are nice, too. I have never had a problem with leaving my things at my table and going up to order. Easily... More

Found this spot after a recommendation from a shopkeeper nearby. Once you know how to order, at the bar, everything else is great. The bookshop/cafe has a neat feel to it with an interesting menu that is very good especially when considering the portions. Staff were helpful. Make sure task what the special is, we were pleasantly surprised.

This is my to go place in Copenhagen - food is good and reasonably priced. Relatively cosy atmosphere. My favourite is the brunch - such good value for so many things! But sometimes it might be hard to find a seat (so go early) and line might be quite long.

As the title - its a great cafe! Good food with big portions and located 7/10 min walk away from Strøget - the main shopping area! Smack in the central, affordable and unique. However there is only one Danish food on the menu (Parisian burger) so don't go for local experience! Always busy - lucky if you can find a... More

It's nice a nice place to dine or have an evening snack. The place is so cozy, filled with books, thick curtains and wooden furniture. It's kind of eating at Mr. Watsons living room (or at least as I imagine it would look like). It's ideal for a date or to spend time with friends or family (maybe not so... More
