Great food

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.

Me and my friend step inside to have a glass of wine. Place was very welcoming and warm, people met up there with business or school dielings. This remainds me of library, books everywhere. They served food and drink with reasonable prices. We had glasses of white, which was averige. We saw some dishes and they looked big and yammy.... More

I had a really lovely vegetarian lasagne here. My friend had a pasta pesto with chicken. We ordered a red wine and a beer. And only paid 32 euro's. SO really cheap for Denmark. But the most important is that it was also plenty and tasted really well. It's crowded, but cosy in here. Nice people come here to eat.... More

If you are into books and good healthy food, this is the place for you - it's like taking your lunch in a vintage library. The atmosphere is amazing, it's like you step right into the past. Would not recommend this to large groups, as finding a place to sit is quite hard. Come in groups of 2-4.

Good value drink and food. Portions are generous and the burger includes lots of healthful greens. Can be crowded so you might have to wait just inside the door until people leave, then run to grab the table. Order at the bar and the food is delivered to the table. There is no attempt to shift people out during the... More

Such a nice place to sit and the brunch was fantastic. Good value too. Shame it doesn't include coffee but the strawberry smoothie was delicious.

Any restaurant/cafe that has a book theme is alright by me. Cafe Paludan is opposite CPH Uni and has a great student feel with a warm environment. The food is very good (quality and quantity) for the prices (mains are 60-120 DKK) and I look forward to coming again.

The cafe has a long history behind it. There's a ton of books. If you like something that could look like a cafe from a modern Harry Potter, this is it.

It's a very interesting concept! It's right in front of the University of Copenhagen so expect to run into students! The atmosphere was glorious! Full of books and I felt in an old library-restaurant straight out of a movie! I would definitely recommend to go with friends here! A nice coffee or dinner is really good! A hidden gem in... More
