I've come her several times with a group that included a friend from Denmark. It's usually busy, but still a table available. Servers are generally friendly and efficient. The ambiance is pleasant, and it is easy to carry on conversations. Food is good, and one of the few places to get north central European entrees, such as schnitzel or Danish... More

There are plenty of nicer/better value restaurants in Burlingame. Food is so-so, service is poor. The bakery section is good - so I would stop for coffee and cake, just not for a meal.

This review is based on two visits in the past six months, once for breakfast and once for lunch. We were a party of four, both times visiting with our son and daughter-in-law, who like the place a lot. We ordered at the counter and had a brief wait for our food to arrive each time -- pretty good service... More

The pastry can be a bit hit or miss. Ours was pretty good. The tea selection is a bit weak as well. However, the variety of pastries, and their old-world authenticity and appearance is impressive. And too, on a mild day in Burlingame, nothing beats a sidewalk table there. The service is pretty good also, not great, but nice. The... More

I have head the pleasure of eating at this establishment more than once over the passed few years. I will caveat this review by saying that I have only been here for dinner. Their menu has many different choices. All of the entrees we have ordered are delicious. The meal pricing is fair and they have a small but also... More

I go here when I want something sweet. The pastries are nice, and being able to sit outside and enjoy them is a plus. They are not cheap, but not the most expensive, either.

I have lived in this area for many years, 45 +. This is the best bakery for miles around! They have amazing little pastries, individual desserts, cakes, etc. Nothing is even mediocre. All top quality! I have had the pleasure of having lunch here numerous times, their sandwiches and salads do not disappoint either. Very good quality. Dinner is amazing... More

Copenhagen has breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. It also is a very good bakery, their breads and pastries are delicious. We often go for brunch, however they are transformed into a dinner restaurant with white table cloths and a flower on the table. Great for families dog friendly with outside seating food is always fresh and staff very helpful.
