A Saturday lunch here with a friend. A lovely, friendly, reasonably priced cafe in the Galleria run by a Danish couple. They have regular offerings like wraps and salads but also Danish sandwiches and desserts. I had a lovely Roast beef open face sandwich on Danish dark rye with pickle mayonnaise that was really tasty and reasonable portion. Then we shared an appelskiver. I never had this before and the owner let us know it is not a cake or pie. What it is, is, a lovely bowl of not over-sweet applesauce with little chunks of brown sugar mixed in. Topped with lightly whipped cream and raspberry sauce. It was delicious. Then we had coffee. Nice, big cups of coffee. Also, they actually have a shelf of newspapers to read, and free Wi-Fi. This place is a gem. I'll definitely go back.

This little cafe is tucked inside the Galleria. Owned and operated by a Danish family, the desserts are really special. I love coming here for the homemade Danish pancakes. They are absolutely scrumptious. And the fresh made strawberry jam is perfect. Along with the coffee which is always hot and delicious. Its a great cozy spot to meet up with a friend for a quick bite....They serve lunch as well, which is healthy and really good...and the staff is always friendly and accommodating. Try this place for something different.

I "discovered" this lovely cafe when I went to the a farmers market in red bank. Yes, they really have the worlds greatest Danish! But my family and I went for the Danish Christmas party. What a great time! Awesome and traditional good that I had never tried, fabulous service and I feel like I made a bunch of new friends. There was signing, raffles and yummy Danish and rice pudding for dessert.
Totally looking forward to going on Sunday for breakfast!

This charming, comfortable, low-key coffee shop/restaurant is located in a renovated old brick factory building where several shops & offices have become residents. The Danish Cafe is a most welcome refuge for breakfast, lunch - and informal meetings with friends. Great open-faced sandwiches, excellent coffee, and the pastries (yes, real Danish - from Denmark!) are melt-in-the-mouth. If it is snowing outside and they are streaming Danish radio... you can truly fantasize that you are in Copenhagen (except the prides here are a lot more reasonable!)

Located in a restored brick factory building, with high ceilings and lots of wood, this charming cafe is a great place to meet friends for a late breakfast or a little lunch. The coffee is excellent. If you try to deny yourself one of the (real) Danish pastries, well...don't! They are incredible. Open-faced sandwiches are deliciously prepared - on whole grain bread. If they are streaming Danish radio and it's snowing outside - you can almost convince yourself you are in Copenhagen.
