“Nice café right next to the lakes.....”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

This summer has been good in Copenhagen weatherwise, and this café is well-located, a 10-15 min. walk from central Copenhagen and with practically no traffic noise. On a warm summer evening you can sit outside with a view over one of the lakes and enjoy your lunch or dinner. We went there in the evening. The menu card appeared to offer the standard selections for a café, so we decided to try both from the main course menu and from the tapas selection: beef fillet and tapas. The Beef filet (served with rosemary-fried petit potatoes (couldn't taste the rosemary), fresh salad with herbs and balsamic dressing and herb butter) was average, not medium as requested though. The rest of the dish was a bit bland. The tapas plate (smoked salmon with dill dressing, turkey, chorizo, olive tapanade, mozzarella, gorgonzola, humus and pesto.) passed the test - no more, no less. Attentive waiters and quick service.

“The best shrimp salad in town!”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Café 22 is a nice little café close to the lakes and perfect for a diner or lunch outside on a hot summer evening or inside on a cosy winter night. I have been there many times and the food is a good bistro standard but their "new" shrimp salad is simply delicious. All very tasteful and fresh ingredients. I would even have given them 5 stars if only the mayonaise was home made. A little off the beaten track for a tourist but definitely worth a try. Furthermore it is in an area with many other good little restaurants just one road away.

“Cold, overcooked food after 1h wait.”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Cafe 22 has about 200% more tables than they can handle. Food arrived at the table about 40 min after order was placed. Food was cold and overdone, and served by unpleasant waiters. I live in CPH, and knowing there are numberless great cafés in this city, I will never ever visit this place again.

“Nice brunch, nice atmosphere, Ok service.”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

We Went there for sunday brunch in a cloudy day. All tables inside were taken or reserved, so we sat outside.
Coffee was very good, orange juice was great.
Brunch food had some options, although not as many as other brunch places. Most of it were very good, with the exception of the eggs which was only Ok.
Service needs improving, not bad but not particularly friendly. Not much needed for brunch.
