A nice place for dinner with friends

We often visit our friends over dinner at the Copenhagen Bakery & Café. The servers are friendly and efficient, the food is always enjoyable, and the price is not too outrageous. I like that they have a light menu with smaller portions, but they still have plenty of calories (warm brie with... read more

I haven't eaten in the cafe, but i have enjoyed the bakery side on several occasions. Having been to Denmark and loved the pastries there, i was hoping that Copenhagen Bakery would be like those - and it was. Authentic Danish pastries, not the embarrassing American kind. I highly recommend the Mozart pastry!

The food & service are good. Always enjoy going there! The bakery has fantastic baked goods, cakes, cookies, bread, and seasonal items. It is located on Burlingame Avenue that has lots of shops, and restaurants. Parking generally is not a big problem.

I discovered for my very picky eater that Copenhagen will serve fries, if asked, (YAY!) while I get to have eggs benedict. Their almond croissant is quite tasty, but the winner for pastries is their bavarian eclair, which is a chocolate glazed delight filled with a custard whipped cream. Their princess cakes (which can be purchased whole) are another yummy... More

My moms last day in CA and we took her for dessert as the bakery is awesome. We got the cookies with jam in the middle and got a big cripsy wager like things which was very light and good! Gotta say though the coffee really really sucks. Half of the coffee urns were empty and had to walk over... More

Stand in line to order breakfast, lunch, baked goods or coffee. Food is okay, but not special. However, it remains a local favorite. Some Gluten-free goodies have been added, which is a plus. Last time I had an omelet, it was horrible. Would not order again. Pancakes, etc. look good, but I can't eat that.

A good venue for locals and visitors. Consistently good for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A limited menue in a cafe/cafeteria style. Friendly, hardworking staff. Indoor and limited outdoor seating. Good prices, do not forget to try the bakery attached to the restaurant.
