“Rather boring cakes”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

The cheesecakes were OK, but not amazing. The crust was rather thin and the cheesecake filling was a bit bland. I tried one with pear and ginger and one with blueberries.

The pear and ginger was a vast, bright orange gelatine piled on top of the cake far too thickly - the gelatine was thicker than the crust. The gelatine itself had an okay taste, but the texture when combined with the cheesecake filling was just weird, especially because there was no crust to balance it off. It was just smoosh upon smoosh.

The blueberries was a rather flavourless blueberry jam which was also piled on top far too heavily. I'm afraid it didn't really cut it.

The cheesecake filling didn't have that sourness to it that it should have, and with the massive amounts of sweet but strangely bland topping, it just wasn't very inspiring.

“Lives up to expectation”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Having read many reviews on trip advisor I took some friends to the shop on Sunday and we were wowed. With 6 of us there, each of us tried a different variety, and were all extremely satisfied. The shop is very small, and it is slow serving, but the spectacular cheesecake more than makes up for it.
Will definitely be making a return visit soon.

“Yummy!”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

One of the things i find difficult is finding a great place to have dessert after eating out in Copenhagen/Frederiksberg. So I'm really glad to have found Bertels Kager.
Their cheesecake is 100% delicious New York style. I've tasted 6 different kinds, and surprisingly, even though I am not a big Oreo cookie fan, that Oreo cookie cheesecake is pure cheesecake heaven. Atmosphere is cozy and friendly. We'll be back again soon :)

“Best cheesecakes and wonderful”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

As I live just on the other side of the street I have been here several times. A wonderful little cafe, great cheese cakes. Many different variations. Go there to get a piece.

The tapes in inspired by danish and spanish food. And for only 99 DKK, you get enough and very high quality.

Go there!!!!
