It is very likely that upon arrival in Copenhagen someone will recommend this place to you. Then, most likely you will walk by (the result of being strategically situated right where everybody walks) and you will notice first the spectacular confections on the window, then the seemingly endless stream of people going in. And you'll think: cool, this might be it!
But before you get too excited, let me tell you what I personally could go without any given saturday morning:
- Cake, coffee and tea ordering can get VERY chaotic. I can't help to feel bad for the locals, having such a delightful little kondiotori but having to fight the hordes of tourists to have a piece of cake.
- Menu is not of great help because not all cakes offered in writing are available everyday. So basically you'll just have to pick something from the window, even though you might not be sure what's in it.
- Good luck finding a table.
- Service is as s- l-o-w as it can get. And then some.
- Pretty basic tea and coffee selection.
I have mixed feelings because I just can't help but loving it's old time charm. It's one of those places that transport you to a different place in time.
The cakes are beautiful, though, very airy and creamy, if you are into that kind of thing this place might still be worth the visit. Me? I rather have some epic coffee/tea, and grandma style (less sophisticated) cakes somewhere beautiful and quiet... and with Wi-Fi.
