We saw this cafe from our hotel (Hotel Amager) and decided to check it out. We liked it a lot. It has a warm atmosphere, very cosy, and the food is good. Since it was raining and we had to do some work, we went back in the afternoon. There is good access to WIFI and a working Internet connection. Maybe the only negative is the acoustics in the backroom. It is very loud when there are other guests talking and having a good time. For Copenhagen the prices are reasonable. If you are in the area and need a place to sit and have a coffee than we can recommend this place.

This was a slow sunday afternoon with very few customers. One of our friends asked if they had burgers on the menu and she pointed to "varme retter" (hot meals). He still couldn't quite read it (a lot of text and the word burger is not used, rather "patty with sesame bun") so he asked again (politely) where it was on the menu and she got mad and said "Do you want me to read the menu for you, as well?!", without a trace of smile or friendliness. This was not a misunderstood situation, she was in a very bad mood and let it show. Needless to say, we left right away.

Cafe Under Elmene was highly recommended by the owner of the apartment we're renting for our week in Copenhagen. Located just around the corner from our apartment, we were told this was one of the first cafes to open in this neighborhood and is a neighborhood institution. We were not disappointed! Service at the counter was very welcoming and they have an English version of their menu. I chose their club sandwich on dark bread which was out of this world! Brimming with crispy bacon, moist succulent chicken and mature avocado, it was one of the best sandwiches I've ever tasted! My friend chose one of their vegetarian sandwiches which he equally enjoyed. Unlike most cafes here in Copenhagen which serve roasted potatoes (often undercooked) as an accompaniment to their bar menu, Cafe Under Elmene serves perfected cooked and seasoned thick-cut fries and they're excellent! My only gripe is we ordered (and paid for) a full portion of fries to be shared with my friend. What we got was a small handful of fries on the plate with my sandwich which quickly disappeared. Not wanting to argue with the extremely kind woman at the counter we let it pass. They have outside seating which was handy since we have a small dog. Highly recommended!

We have visited this cafe a couple of times. They have really great sandwiches, especially the one with tuna on Dark bread. Their café fries with chili mayo are also very good. Not so great salads though. Very friendly staff, and they have a great outdoor area to enjoy the afternoon sun.

We found this cafe when looking for a place for dinner after checking into Hotel Amagar. We ended up eating there two nights. The first night, we had chili con carne and spicy beef pasta. The second night, we had the burger and the chicken salad special. The meals were generous and the price reasonable. We also had coffees to go, which were incredibly good. The staff were very friendly, and our meals arrived quickly. Definitely a nice find for our final two nights in Denmark!
