My husband and I have visited Copenhagen Bakery and Cafe each time we are in the San Mateo area. Wonderful baked goods, great coffee, and a great neighborhood atmosphere. We enjoy it every time we are in town.

Talk about a trip back to Sweden! The bakery and pastries are to die for! So delicious we took extra to bring back to our home out of state. Amazing customer service!

I eat lunch either at the restaurant or take out 3 times a week. Food quality & quantity is excellent for the price, very homey atmosphere and a great bakery. Fresh bread all day long!

I always love to go to Copenhagen - they have the best marzipan treats which are just so rich and dense. Ever since my parents got their 60th Anniversary cake here, I've been going back every few months.

I've been coming here for years, both to enjoy at the cafe and for take out. The pastries are amazing. Cakes are terrific ~ everything I've had has been lovingly made.

The best bakery in town. Saturday afternoon can be pretty packed. The apple pie, cherry pie, pumpkin bread, cookies, coffee cakes...hard to choose. They also serve really good coffee and breakfast. A beautiful traditional place.

A trip to Burlingame Ave. is no complete without visiting one of the venerable dining establishments. Copenhagen is quintessential "The Avenue", as it gets. Go, you won't be disappointed.
