Stopped in for lunch. They had a choice of three smorrebrod on the menu - each included a beer and a snap. The place did not feel at all touristy. The waitress was genuinely friendly and helpful. We asked about gluten free options and they were very accommodating. The fried fish filet was out, but they had gf bread, which... More

We stumbled upon this little gem after a visit to Hamlet's castle (Kronborg) on an excursion out of Copenhagen. We had been wanting to try the famous Danish smørrebrød since arriving, but had found the prices in Copenhagen itself extremely high! This place was absolutely fantastic. 3 smørrebrød, a beer and 'snaps' all for the equivalent of about £10 -... More

We sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather and walking-only street. Lots of mayo on everything- this seems custom. The lunch comes with a beer and schnapps.

We had our first Danish lunch at Cafe Hyacinth and it exceeded our expectations. The menu consisted of your choice of 3 different open-faced sandwich "slider" options from the following: smoked salmon, roast beef, shrimp or fried fish. Each was a unique bundle of flavors which really surprised us. Included in our fixed price meal was a glass of the... More

I walked in right before the lunch rush on a busy Saturday afternoon. There was one not-so-great table left but the all-local crowd encouraged me to stay. There are only two menu options (that I could tell), each with a selection of three different smorrebrod. I chose the option with fried fish, egg salad and roast beef. I had been... More

Very surprisingly named for Patricia Routledge's arch-snob, Hyacinth Bucket, this cafe is anything but pretentious. Instead, it presents a range of 3 open sandwich menus each day, specialising in the local seafood and washed down with the products of the local microbrewery and, of course a shot of schnapps - all for less than 200 kroner and served by very...

The smørrebrød is very good. I had roast beef, egg and shrimp and fish fillet. The service is even better. The food and drink came fast and the bartender even offered the use of a phone charger when he saw me using a powerbank.
