This was a great meeting spot. We enjoyed two delicious meals while visiting my daughter who is spending a semester in Copenhagen. The atmosphere was cozy and laid back.

We were here for our first lunch. The food was good. We did not try the cakes but it looked yummy as well. If you can, after the cakes stall, go upstairs and turn to your right. Try to find a seat in this room. The service was also friendly, you have to order at the counter directly

A very cosy and charming place. We went there with friends fortuitously and we were pleasantly surprised. The food is really good and not expensive, the staff is friendly and the atmosphere with all the books is really soothing. I would enjoy to come again!

The food was delicious + the ambiance and atmosphere were very warm. Easily reachable for an enjoyable stop during your walk. Make sure to order the salmon smørrebrød (open sandwich) which was perfect. Better enjoyed between friends, not kids friendly.

Thanks to TripAdvisor we decided to try this bar/restaurant very close to the central University and to the round tower. The Menu is pretty comprehensive and we decided to opt for the brunch: toast ham and cheese with fruit and brunch plate with a selection of eggs, bacon, ham, cheese, pancakes, yogourt, jam, bread and fruit. The food and its... More

This is a fantastic cafe with a fantastic atmosphere. It contains a number of floors full with thousands of books and lots of different games such as cludo which you can play. Due to the number of books here it is a very cool place to have a meal or a drink. The smoothies are huge and contain so much... More

Amazing looking cafe with such a nice atmosphere. We went on a Sunday and it was soo busy! Queued for around 25 minutes and waited for our food for around 40 minutes which did feel like a long time, but it was worth it as it was absolutely delicious! We had the Paludan brunch which included yogurt, fruit, eggs, sausage,... More

We came across this place by accident as we were exploring the city. It's right next to the University so easy to find. We were amazed at the atmosphere, full of old books and cosy tables. The food was amazing. We were expecting Copenhagen to be expensive but places like that are the exception. We tried a platter to share... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
