Great atmosphere in this cafe. You seemed to be able to sit as long as you like, no one trying to rush you out like some places in Copenhagen. The coffee was good. Lots of students around with there laptops looking very happy. I did feel like I was the eldest person in there but that was ok.

Good reasonably priced coffee, excellent, however crowded atmosphere, sweets: so-so. Went there with a friend during one of those cold February afternoons. Lots of people in all ages. The location must attract different kinds of people which is a nice break from Nørrebro's hipster-filled cafes. The coffee was lovely, and the price was reasonable. Had a chocolate cookie, to my disappointment it wasn't as good as it sounded, but the atmosphere was really nice. Old and young, side by side. If you want privacy go somewhere else, but if you want to get a real sense of the Copenhagen crowd in all its shapes, go there and enjoy their coffee.

Paludan is a nice cafe and a book shop at once. It's a great place to eat (the big and tasty sandwich plates!), to hang around with friends drinking coffee or surfing in the internet. Paludan is very charming when it's snowing outside and they offer the Danish hot wine gløgg between the high book shelves. Unfortunately it's very crowdy sometimes.

Although it's a little pricy, that's just Copenhagen. This once-bookstore-turned-cafe has fantastic food and coffee/espresso drinks. The goat-cheese burger is my favorite. The atmosphere is quaint and tends to cater to students (it is right next to Copenhagen University), but it's a great place for anyone wanting some good food.

I have come to this place many times! The brunch is great (vegetarian options available), the coffee is good and the sandwiches are tasty and will fill you up. It is a bit pricey but the place is so nice. It is a book shop as well as a café thus the walls are covered with bookshelves creating a great ambiance. Adding to this, it is next to The University of Copenhagen so many students and study groups come here to study. It is placed in a beautiful neighborhood in Copenhagen - next to the Our Lady's Church (my favorite church in Copenhagen), the ecnomy campus of the University of Copenhagen (which is beautiful - go in and have a look at the building) and the cool street Studiestræde.
