Description: Cafe Europa 1989 has been active in the specialty coffee industry since 1989. “In 2003 Jens Nørgaard and Martin Hildebrandt from cafe Europa 1989 decided to start up CCA, the Copenhagen Coffee Academy. Through their search to know more about coffee, milk and other related products, the aim was to make a contribution to the specialty coffee culture. The objective was to conjoin gastronomy and the world of wine with the specialty coffee world.” You can read our coffee history in the “Cafe Europa 1989 Cookbook”, or you can read it here. “We want the cafe to be characterized by long-term consistency and we expect it to resemble itself from one year to the next. Cafe Europa 1989 should be a manifestation of both the tenor of the times and the timeless.”

This café is based in probably the best location in Copenhagen especially if you like people watching! Located in the centre of the medieval part of town right on the corner of the biggest square of "Strøget" you simply cannot ask for a better location to sit and watch the world go by. This prime location is reflected in the prices - DKK179 for a salad or sandwich...that said their food is delicious and a sandwich may last all day, unless you are doing a die-hard shopping routine :-)

Cafe Europa is in central place in the city, near by famous meeting place in Copenhagen. We enjoyed in good coffee and looked on crowd street. The service was fine and waiter was very friendly and prepared for conversation. Atmosphere is very nice and they had one wall with photos of famous people who visited cafe in the past. Prices are the same as in other cafes in the city.

Slightly more upmarket lunch spot and the prices reflected this! The food was excellent - we enjoyed a roast beef sandwich and cesar salad which were freshly prepared and brilliantly executed. Slow service (which we encountered everywhere...) but worth the wait.

I went here for breakfast during a weekday. Of course, expensive but the quality of the food and drinks was very good. The service was also fine. There weren't many other customers, but the staff was friendly and helpful. Looking at the price though I would have to say it is a little on the pricey side for what you actually get.

Posh, but lousy service, and bad food at a high price.. Perhaps it's okay for a cup of very expensive coffe, but any thing is a no go
