“Lots of character and good menu options”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

We called in to Paludan's several times recently and enjoyed both the visits. The cafe has lots of character and many separate spaces, all book lined and many of them cosy. Each time we were there the staff spoke mainly in English and the cafe was busy without being noisy or uncomfortable. Most of the clientele seemed to be students or staff from the University, (the cafe is opposite the University Library), so there is a lot of quiet laptop gazing going on here.

“Good food and nice vibe!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

If you are looking for a place to have a coffee and chill out this is a great option. It's always crowded with students. It has very reasonable prices for Copenhagen and the food is delicious.

“Bit bohemian but excellent quality”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

This place is always full, mainly with students and other young people using the free wifi connection. You get a table and then order at the bar. The food is really good. I had the tapas plate which was fulsome with meats, prawns, humus, skins etc, swilled down with a pint of lager. Being rather hungry (it was a very cold day) I also had the cheese plate with a pleasant glass of red. The bill came to £25 which I felt was very reasonable(and extremely cheap when compared to the restaurant in my hotel). Really buoyant atmosphere which was great as I was dining alone.

“Great breakfast plate!”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Sevice quite slow (like a lot of cafes in Copenhagen) but the food was worth waiting for. As someone on a wheat free diet I really loved the breakfast plate with yoghurt, fruit, ham and cheese. the lunch plate looked equally good. Good prices in a city where food is very expensive compared to the UK.

“Very nice atmosphere. Good service!”

Went to Paludans after a disaster dinner at Peder Oxe. Were really surprised with the generous cakes and good coffee. Excellent service and inexpensive as well. Will definitely return!
