Excellent value lunch menu Smørrebrød

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!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2015 NEW

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.

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..

We went there because of the good reviews and did not regret it. For less than £20 we had a good lunch for two, including smorresbord and drinks, all served by a smiling, tattooed waitress. We particularly liked the fact that there was no choice. We didn't have to think! Not sure what happens if you're a vegetarian, though.
