“Very good cafe in the main street of Birkerød”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Café Alex is THE place to meet if you are in Birkerød and around. Birkerød is a fairly small town with not a lot going on, but Alex is THE place to meet here. The owners of the Café run the café themselves - its not a franchise or similar - and you can feel that they take a pride in serving good food, in a super clean place at good prices, excellent service and in café with a nice ambience - and they are open all days. Also, Café Alex relies on returning customers in a small area - so quality for a fair price is important and you sense that. Café Alex delivers this to a very very large extent. Birkerød would be a terribly boring place without this café that has become the social centre of the town.

“Delicious food! A nice option for a cosy dinner in Birkerød.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

In this price range you can find a very big range in quality. Cafe Alex is good value as the food is very nicely prepared and presented and delicious. I would recommend this restaurant for a nice meal out when you don't feel like eating at home. Good for a casual dinner or lunch.

“Disgraceful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

My wife tried to order lunch at Cafe Alex, she was alone with 2 children and was rudely ignored. It got to the point where she had to grab a waiter and even then was shrugged off and ignored. Shocking and disgraceful. We will not return under any circumstances.
