"drinking is a way of ending the day"

The atmosphere is soo danish with a wood and the books. The beer is cold, the food is delicious! You can go there to date, to work, to meet with your friends, or if you just want to stuck out from the busy life. I recommend this place for everyone from every ages! Great!

The waiter was a very arrogant person so we needed to go. He was arguing about a bottle of water that I had from outside, took away from me and threw away without saying a word.

Great food, decent prices, good ambiance... Can get pretty busy. Seems like there is a large university crowd that ends up here to study or write, but very worthwhile for anyone.

A great place to come on your own or with friends if you like to eat good food. The queues can be long (you have to queue up to order your food) but it is worth it. Relax, find one of the tables dotted between the bookshelves and soak up the atmosphere.

We just had dinner here. The atmosphere of the place was quite nice and the food was not bad but the staff's behaviour and the cleanliness were pretty infuriating... One of our knives had half of the previous meal on it and we asked for a new one and instead of apologising the waiter seemed to be quite irritated and... More

Well worth a visit to this cafe popular with students and others. Enjoyed the salmon, the coffee was great, as were the grilled potatoes. Service is brisk but cheerful, and you have to queue at the bar to order. There is wifi - but also an euroam signal from the University building nearby. Good value by Copenhagen standards. Refreshingly down-to-earth... More

When I saw the books and how the whole place is designed I was already in love! I really felt like home, so comfortable with a good atmosphere, the music was there but not too loud, it was filled with people but still quiet and spacious. We had burgers for lunch and they were delicious.

I loved the place from the first moment. I enjoyed the style and design with sofas and books, although there were not enough place and it was so so so busy that it made me feel a bit uncomfortable because the place was very noisy. Next time we went back, we coudn't even go in because it was full unfortunately.... More

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 you are... More
