Had the mango smoothie. Very good drink and the cafe has great ambiance. Has the look of a library and caters to students.

I have been there for the sunday brunch. Very satisfying plate at more than reasonable price considering Copenhagen prices. Nice atmosphere.

My husband and I split the goat cheese salad and it was very filling and delicious. He also got a smoothie and said it was great. I thought it was a real book store, but you weren't allowed to touch any of the books.

Passed by recently and got a cup of coffee. The queue was huuge! It took me like 10 minutes just to order, but coffee was prepared quite fast. And they put cookies! Have tasted espresso and filter coffee, both were nice, place inside is cozy, but outside no one cleans the tables, so we had a great deal of none... More

I found this place rather caotic. Staff is 17 year old Kids and nobody told us we had to order at the counter, adding 15 minutes waiting. Be prepared to be sourounded by 20 year olds studying for their examns at the neighbour table. Food was good, but the organization of the service was not good. They could inform what... More

Portion sizes were great but food had no flavour. Burger was 80% red onion and pesto tagliatelle just tasted like plain past with som veggies. Tasted like massed produced food with little care given.

Tagliatelle was a little bit overcocked. But the taste was good. Try the hamburgers instead. Nice place with lots of students.

I went to Paludan three times during my week's stay in Copenhagen. I loved everything about it. I was traveling alone, so I was a little nervous about finding places to dine where I wouldn't feel conspicuous. The atmosphere at Paludan is perfect, whether one is dining alone, reading, working, or grabbing a bite with several friends. I loved being... More

Eccentric decor, delicious food in generous portions. First place in Copenhagen that really fit my gluten free needs. We will return again this visit. The Greek Salad was excellent and served with the best gluten free roll I've had in a while. My husband had the Chili Con Carne. It included rice and a side salad. If you are coming... More

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
