Delicious pastries and nice atmosphere

We come here whenever we're in the area. Our favorite pastry is the Sara Bernhardts. They do a really good mousse! Nice atmosphere and you can eat outside if you wish.

I always stop in at Copenhagen Bakery when window-shopping in downtown Burlingame. Very reasonably-priced and delicious fresh pastries. Lots of tables to sit and read the paper or a book while enjoying your food. A good place to meet someone for lunch or coffee.

Rating food only since we ordered take out. The cake and the raspberry mango mouse were done to perfection. No tons of sugar and punds of angel cake. This place never disappoints with their food.

We have been here several times.. It gets crowded on the weekends.. They have a nice variety of options, plus a bakery... The portions are pretty big and ok pricing... Sometimes it can be hard to get a place to sit.. I enjoyed my omelette...

For years Copenhagen has served outstanding danish whether cinnamon, cinnamon walnut, almond, cherry, chocolate (amazing), etc. It is still one of the best places in the US for high quality coffee cake sized and individual danish. They also serve delicious coffee. It's very pleasant to sit either in the cafe or outside. They offer a full breakfast, lunch and dinner... More

Love the Chinese chicken salad for lunch or dinner. For breakfast the eggs, bacon and potatoes and toast is a great basic breakfast. Food is pretty consistent. Prices are comparable to others in area.

Really average tasting desserts and we are not that impressed. Friend's birthday so we came in to get princess cake. I got a chocolate cupcake and it was not very moist at all. The danish surprise was surprising bad with custard inside that just didn't taste good. And the french waffle tasted like twinkie filling. Overall, not that great. Friend... More

Great sidewalk seating, quality salads with good portions. Great wine selections. Service was polite, but maybe a tad bit curt. Good prices.
