Simple, good and friendly

Went there because of the review. The restaurant were only serving the danish open sandwich. For 99kr. you get three different types of bread, bottle of beer, a snaps and a nice friendly service. I don't have to describe all three types of the bread. It was well worth it. If you are interessing in... read more

This is a place with a lot of regular customers having open sandwiches and beers for lunch. Went there based on the Tripadvisor recommendations, but I will hardly go back, it was too unambiguous and the atmosphere was not really for me, I prefer a younger/mixed crowd not so full of regulars drinking beer.

This is a cafe that for lunch just offers a set menu of 3 different types of smørrebrød + 1 beer + 1 shot, all for 99 DKK. The smørrebrød were simple, but quite good and tasty, and quite large. The beer and the shot was also good. Really good value for expensive Denmark!

Went there to eat something for lunch. Average food, prices and service. Really doesn’t disserve third place. There are better places to eat with worst rating.

If you are Danish this place is a bit strange because it is mostly frequented by Swedes. The food is excellent, but for lunch it is a set menu of 3 of the more traditional "smørrebrød" so don't go here if you plan on choosing from a list of "smørrebrød" or if you have something specific in mind.

We stopped in for lunch on a rainy day. We could tell immediately that this was a popular place with locals. We were greeted quickly and warmly and shown to a table. Soon after a young server approached us with a smile and explained the lunch offering,which was quite simple. 3 open face sandwiches ( fried fish, shrimp, and roast... More

We had the lunch at Cafe Hyacinth after visiting Kronborg Castle. Three smorrebrod, a beer and an aquavit for 99 kr (about $15 usd). Good deal! The service and sandwiches (fried fish, shrimp and roast beef) were very good. There is no menu, only the special. Seating inside and outside provide for a good experience.

Great place for lunch. Open sandwiches is all they serve. Along with a drink and a schnapps. Great for something different. Recommend..
