cosy french cafe atmosphere just a minute walk from Frederiksberg city hall. Grab annespresso and a croque madame in the morning; and all your worries about the gray, misty, rainy Copenhagen weather will wanish from your horizon. Thats my experience today :-)

This is a French style bistro in the lovely surburb, Frederkisberg. The service is good and the food is delicious! I had an omelette and also a side of pancakes (which were amazing!). Would definitely recommend for breakfast, nice ambience inside too :)

A classic bistro to visit with good atmosphere, has been among the best for many years and was nominated as the best in 2014/15 in a Danish leading adviser called AOK. Friendly and positive staff with great service, I would recommend the virgin lobster and the moules with a bottle of Sancerre. There a many nice sideorders to check out!... More

Sitting outside is a bit strange as you feel you are in the middle of the busy road. Inside the acoustics is really bad, which gives a feeling of sitting in the middle of a bus terminal. The service seems like you are inconveniencing them by being there. Food is a bit above average.

My wife and I visited here for the first time -- we did not have a reservation, for a weeknight, but we were seated in about 20 minutes. Nice menu, friendly wait staff, and warm ambiance. My wife had the cod fish entree and I had a burger -- we both loved our meals. I thought the prices were reasonable... More

I have always liked Cafe Sokkelund, but as time goes by the prices go up. The places is one of the most sought after cafes/bistros in Copenhagen. Hard to get a table. Service is a bit snobbish. Food is always fresh and well made, but the prices are way way too high.

In Frederiksberg you’ll find Denmark’s most beautiful (and expensive) city villas. These 4-5 square miles form the Beverly Hills of Copenhagen. Here you’ll also find Frederiksberg Have (Garden) which sports huge outdoor concerts, from classical to electronic dance music. To top it off, dining options range from cozy family restaurants to some of the area’s most trendy cafés.
