La Glace is a Copenhagen institution, unchanged in decades. Everyone comes here; young, old, tourists, students, ladies who lunch. At many tables you'll see multi-generational families sipping hot chocolate together, very Danishly. In some ways it resembles a doll's house with tiny, perchy chairs circled round wee marble tables, all crammed together so tight that you are almost sitting on your neighbor's lap. Ordering is a bit of a chore; join the scrum at the counter (sometimes numbering system is in force, more often not) to pick out your cake, select your beverage, and sit back down. The waitress will bring it to you, after circling a few other tables in confusion ("is this your cake?", "did you order the eclair?"). Elbows tight to your sides, now enjoy the best cakes in town -- tasty, moist and very rich. They even have a cake honouring Hans Christian Andersen, created to commemorate the fairytale writer and most famous Dane. Good coffee at a mind-bending 50 kr per small pot. Cramped, expensive, and beastly hot, there's nothing like Cafe La Glace.
