Chanced upon this cafe in Illum department store. Turns out it has one of the best views from its outdoor terrace as well as excellent coffee.

Love this little cafe. Coffee is indeed excellent. Cortado was our drink of choice. The cakes we tried were all fresh and good quality. The view across stroget is beautiful and the cafe in itself very relaxing.

The food and coffee are nice and high quality. But understaffed gives messy tables and a very long waiting period for servicing. We waited more than 20 min for our coffee and it came much later than the food.

Loved the rooftop for a calm coffee before dinner. The sun was setting over the street - perfect people watching of the bustling Christmas Market while sipping coffee

This was the first place I stumbled upon in Copenhagen. I thought the coffee was really good, until I went to Coffee Collective in Torvehallerne which was slightly better. Overall, good coffee but if you want great - the I suggest Coffee Collective.

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
