A neighborhood Gem with lots of Menu Options & Bakery Treats

You will enjoy the cafe style ordering where you can see what casual dining items you'd like, chose inside or sidwalk seating & be sure to consider a pastry to go. Family owned for decades.

Dinner here is like eating at Oma's. The food has a european flare and it is like a great home cooked dinner. The schnitzel is always good. The veal marsala is also delicious. The rolls of course are terrific since you are in a magnificent bakery.

I have been a loyal patron of Copenhagen for many years. Lately, my disappointments have been piling up. So I'm scratching this bakeshop from my list of favorites. I placed an order for a Turkey cake in dark chocolate ganache. I've tried it before and I liked it. The lady who took my order said that the other Turkey cakes... More

out for a walk in Burlingame one night with my wife. The streets and sidewalks were under repair and we didn't think we could find a decent place open that was in our area. We walked into the Copenhagen Bakery… OMG the smells are the first thing that hits you. Next, your looking for two seats before there is no... More

The Danish pastry at Copenhagen Bakery is outstanding. A few years ago we went to Copenhagen and visited their best bakeries. It was amazing to learn that our home town bakery is as good as the real Copenhagen's top bakery.

Nice, fresh food and not too pricey. Would definitely return. I can see how this has been successful for 30 years. It looks like they have a loyal clientele and it's very popular with the locals.

I've been to the bakery part of the restaurant may times, but this was my first dinner. We went for a birthday dinner, and although the menu and wine list is not extensive, the selections were varied enough that we all found something we wanted (which made my daughter happy, sometimes its harder to make a decision when you have...

We came here often when we are in the Burlingame downtown area. With the new sidewalk completed here, it felt like more of an European town. Their bakery items are outstanding and you can get brew coffee or from the coffee bar which is good. Sometimes you just want a cup of coffee to go with the pastry.
