This is a great place for a coffee and / or lunch. As others have said, service can be slow (about as fast as Costa / Starbucks) but it is worth the wait. Good choice of drinks and the lunch menu is very good and reasonably priced for Copenhagen. It is a very popular hangout for students who all seem... More

Quick, efficient and friendly service; and good food, sensibly priced in an interesting and attractive setting. The cafe is much bigger inside than it appears from the street. It doubles as a bookshop serving the student quarter - and is opposite the university library. A busy and informal atmosphere, some there to eat, some to drink and, from the number... More

This cafe was recommended to us by close friends. The brunch was very good (and reasonably priced) and it was a real treat being able to sit outside. We'd definitely return when returning to Copenhagen.

Stopped for a glass of wine at this cute little cafe. Great view of the library and fun spending time in the presence of students. Only draw back was that self-service required long wait at the busy bar.

Paludan became my favourite place to hang out while in Copenhagen... until tonight. The waitress told us to leave because they were closing even though she saw that our plates were still full (late dinner that she served us). Later on as we were still not finished, she ended up barking at us "Out, now!". This is something not acceptable!... More

Our friend's daughter spent a year as a student in Copenhagen and heartily recommended this place. It reminded us of someplace you might find in any college town in New England - We had to wait in line for about 20 mins. to place our order (a Saturday afternoon), we ordered hamburgers. The wait was about another 30 minutes or... More

We went for brunch at Paludan. The brunch is very good and big! The place is great, with several sitting rooms and huge bookshelves packed with old books. Student crowd mostly, and laid back atmosphere. We arrived quite early (saturday 10am) which was great because the line got quite long later.

It took us about 10 minutes to find a table in this busy yet relaxed place. A lot of students reside here just taking up tables reading books or working so not the best place if you want a more formal lunch/dinner setting. However, once a table is found it is a great place for lunch where you queue up... More

Great brunch, not high price: eggs, fruit, pancakes, cheese... About 100kr for a brunch plate. Location very cosy, like a small library. It's always packed at weekends. There is also a vegetarian brunch. Burgers are very good as well!

This restaurant has everything you could need: cozy atmosphere, decent prices, and huge portions. Their baked potatoes are delicious if you're looking for something affordable and delicious. If you visit in the morning, I recommend the Paludan brunch. For 99kr you basically get everything you could ever imagine in the perfect brunch (and there's a vegetarian option as well). Never...
