This was a refreshing experience! We were staying at a hotel close by and saw this restaurant had good reviews. They are well deserved. It is not pretentious but quirky, relaxing and informal. It's a self service restaurant and if you sit outside you pay as you go. All the food is made to order and delicious. The staff are... More

We found stumbled upon this place during a bike ride and decided to try it once we saw the good ratings here. Coffee and lattes drinks are wonderful and the staff very good and we enjoyed the scrambled eggs spicy sausage for breakfast.

I loved this restaurant! We had dinner two nights in a row. The burgers are great. We also had Schnitzel which was the special of the day and it was superb. The ambiance is great and you can also sit outside if the weather is nice.

For our first meal, we were looking for casual local ambiance. It was what we expect it to be. The service is good, with no frill ans the food is good.

We went there almost every day during our week long stay in Copenhagen. Here are my opinions in regards to this establishment: 1- Atmosphere: great, unique old school decor really adds to it. It does get a little tight inside because it is always so packed but nothing unbearable. 2- Service: unfortunately the service was quite inconsistent. The best days... More

Overpriced uneventful food. I had the scrambled eggs with grilled vegetables the eggs had a strange texture and were very pale. Not sure what went wrong there..We also shared the blueberry pancakes between us which tasted like they were made with a shop bought pancake mix. The tables/ chairs were cramped and uncomfortable and the place looked like it needed... More

I chose this restaurant as it was directly opposite my hotel (Ibsen) and was well rated on tripadvisor. It was definitely the right choice, I had dinner just by myself (being on business trip), but didn't feel un-comfy at all. As everyone sits very close together it felt actually quite natural to chat with the people at the tables next... More

We stopped here based on reviews and were not disappointed. We had the Tante Green and Kalas Burger. Everything was home made and super yummy. I highly recommend the home made ginger ale.

We found this place on TripAdvisor and were delighted to see the charming eclectic decor when we walked in. The tea was lovely and the coffee was great. We both ordered pancakes and although the menu said to allow 15 minutes for cooking, they took much longer (and the place did not seem that busy). When our food finally arrived,... More

We went to Kalaset with very high expectations. I had been there a few years ago and it felt as if it's lost its original glory. Brunch was just ok and overpriced for what it was. Not the cleanest place in Copenhagen. I won't go back.

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.
