“Finally, food! (:”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

They've added to their offer three wonderful organic soups, which they serve with pita bread. Very tasty and filling! And now, during Christmas holidays, they've glögg and organic æbleskiver!

They also have added new drinks like red orange, ginger, or elderflower - and all organic, as 95% of what they have.

Getting there, Café Retro. Getting there (;

“My favorite cafe in Copenhagen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Cool non-profit cafe with a relaxed vibe and lots of friendly Danes, expats, and travellers. The hot drinks are also decently priced, especially if you have a student card. There's live music on the weekends and it's one of the few places in Copenhagen where you can have a nice chat with strangers and make some new friends. Don't expect food here though--last time I checked, all they served was popcorn and the occasional aebleskiver during the holidays.

“Fun little cafe”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

A quirky little cafe off the main roads. No food other than popcorn and snacks.
The beer was nice but vastly overpriced. 100kr for two large beers. Well over the average for cafes in Copenhagen.

“Simply great: cozy, nice music, cool concerts...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Non-profit and, still, trendy, clean, and cool events going on all the time. From art exhibitions to concerts to knitting clubs.

Very nice, smiling, helpful bartenders. Love the mismatched furniture and the granny-feeling of all the place, with its beautiful fireplace and wooden railing.

They don't have many things to eat, but at least. they have soy milk options for vegans and intolerants out there (;
