Dining options: Breakfast
Neighborhood: Frederiksberg
Description: Everyone is welcome - also small children and their families. The cafe is a social economic activity (non-profit), operated by Frederiksberg Integration Association (FIF) and The Churches Integration Ministry (KIT). The surplus from operations goes to humanitarian and integration projects in Denmark and abroad. Cafe Cadeau is the framework for a Drop-in-Center, with the aim to offer immigrants advice on local economy, law and health, and to provide confidential individual conversations. Cafe Cadeau is also the frame for cultural events, for example information, music and theme nights. Both the cafe and the Drop-in-Center are run by volunteering Danes and immigrants, with the desire that integration takes place at user-, volunteer- and management level. The premises are used also for lectures, courses and happenings. The cafe is available to rent for private parties after agreement.

We weren't expecting much. It's Open Mike at Cafe Cadeau - we ordered food before the poetry began. The dish of the day. Pork tenderloin in an Asian sauce with rice. If people weren't around, I would've licked the plate. Great food. Great atmosphere. And a glass of wine and meal for under 100 DKK is serious value for money in Copenhagen. Hope the open mike goes just as well...

We're seriously happy and content to read your positive review of our cooking! Our dish of the day is always good-value-for-money, and yes, 59 DKK is hard to beat. Made possible by dedicated staff and fantastic volunteers from many countries around the world.

Hopefully you did not miss out on our mango lassi?! And if you haven't been here for the weekend brunch, that's another reason to come back :)

We're happy you appreciate our brunch and non-profit concept! Our international and domestic volunteers and staff do not only prepare the delicious weekend brunch-varieties, but also various dishes served from Tuesday through Friday, among them our dish of the day for 59 DKK. We also have quality wines for 35 kronas per glass or 149 kronas per bottle. In addition, you find beer, soft drinks and espresso / latte / cappuccino from our old-fashioned but glamorous espresso-machine!

Everything served with a smile!

PS. Don't miss out on our international events - keep an eye on Facebook and Google+ for info.

Thanks for your kind words! We do our best to always offer a tasty dish of the day for only 59 DKK. We use quality ingredients and also earned an Elite Smiley. Thanks to our dedicated volunteers we serve our customers with personal attention, and in many languages! Because Café Cadeau is an international hotspot - staff, volunteers and clients come from all over the world.

We're looking forward to see you again, perhaps for a cappuccino, or perhaps for one of our delicious à la carte-dishes. Homemade lasagna, meat or vegetarian maybe?

I can recommend the brunch at Cafe Cadeau. They have several options: basic, classic and deluxe. I tried the classic lunch and for kr. 119 it was good value. It is a buffet brunch with a good variety of hot and cold options and they had a very nice selection of bread. I also liked the pancakes. For an extra kr. 10 you can have unlimited coffee.

I also support the cafe's non-profit approach and the fact that they organise free activities to help foreigners in Denmark. It is a great place to meet other international people. And for travelers it is good to know that they have free Wifi internet.

Thanks for coming to our weekend-brunch! We are pretty sure that 79 DKK is good-value-for-money - that's the price for our Basic Brunch. For only 10 DKK more you can have as much coffee as you want. See our website for full brunch-info.

Also try out our dish of the day as well as à la carte: Tuesday through Friday afternoon/evening.

Indeed, Café Cadeau is an international meeting point in Copenhagen / Frederiksberg, offering Danish classes and much more - mostly for free. In addition, we have social gatherings in cooperation with various organizers: Open Stage with the Copenhagen Theatre Circle, Balkan dance, various Asian events, and much more.

Find out more on the website, Google+ and Facebook.

Hope to see you soon again!
