Cosy little coffee shop looking out over the cobbled road. After debating, Hein ordered an open sandwich topped with Old-style Danish chicken salad with onions, fresh asparagus & crispy bacon. It was delicious. I had an open sandwich with pickled mackerel (divine!), salad and mayo.

Recommended by the hotel, Excellent gourmet sandwiches on hearty, tasty bread (the chicken salad was top notch) with friendly service. Restaurant was filled with light, fashionably decorated and fastidiously clean. Very reasonable as well. Excellent choice for lunch!

Try the homemade jam, it made my morning along with the best of the 80s soundtrack! My wife said her latte was the best she has had in Denmark. Additionally the staff were really nice.

In the center of Kolding, you will find a little oasis, “Cafe Brod”, where seasonal products combine the taste of older times with a modern, trendy Nordic twist. In our open, airy cafe we are inspired by bustling street life and our friendly public to experience recipes from the good old days brought up to date into modern Danish dishes. Nip in for a coffee break, for lunch or hold a meeting in our cozy meeting room and enjoy a pause from the rhythm of daily life…… And on Thursdays, Friday and Saturdays we offer an exciting evening dinner menu that is both nostalgic and tasteful. Leave the busy world behind, play a game of chess or backgammon to rest your mind from the daily round. In our unique, informal atmosphere you can also celebrate a birthday or anniversary where we can spoil and pamper both you and your guests. We look forward to welcoming you and helping you enjoy the “hygge” that is “Cafe Brod”.
