I ate lunch here about half a year ago with a couple of friends visiting Copenhagen for the first time. I therefore wanted to show them the city from above ... and having head much good about this café we gave it a try. The food lived up to expectations: I had a very nice caesar salad and the others opted for the burger. There are quite a few danish specialities on the menu too. Try and book a table in advance though - it's quite a busy place. I can definitely recommend this to tourists - as the location is very central and will give you a much better food experience than the many nearby tourist-trap cafes (Cafe Europa, Cafe Norden). Note that the cafe is only open 10.00-16.00.

The view is the plus of this place. It is situated by the walking street with a view of the roof tops of the city center. The food is at most mediocre but well presented. The place is visited by an audience of 50+, mostly women, and the staff is not all that attentive. In summer there is outdoor seating on a terrace.
