Oh my. The food and shopping in Copenhagen was so good. There are so many fabulous restaurants to chose from and of course, a variety of price ranges. Denmark is also known for its Scandinavian design, which was clear by wares in the incredible shops. For the post below I've separated delicious restaurants into categories. Check it out below!
Cafes and Bakeries
Strangas Dessert Boutique (Aboulevard 7) was right around the corner from our AirBnB apartment. We ate at Strangas for breakfast on our first morning in Copenhagen and we were so pleased with the food and the friendliness of the owner (Stranga himself). Strangas Dessert Boutique sells breakfast pastries, cakes, coffee, and beautiful looking sweets. The restaurant is also very beautiful and super Instagramable!
Ricco's Cafe (Studiestraede 24) is a small chain with a very relaxed atmosphere and free wifi. The coffee was good!
While wandering and doing a bit of shopping around Copenhagen J and I stumbled upon Serenity Cupcakes. Seriously, some of our unexpected finds are truly the best. Serenity Cupcakes is a beautiful shop and the flavors are really creative! We had autumn flavored cupcakes and loved them!
We stopped in Andersen Bakery (Bernstoffsgade 5) after our fabulous trip to Helsingor, as this bakery is right across the street from Copenhagen Central Station. We had this wonderful chocolate concoction below. So yummy!
I have always loved food markets and Torvehallerne is one of the best (PS Thanks Emma for catching my spelling :)). Torvehallerne is made up of two halls and is composed of numerous individual vendors. My favorites were Summerbird Organic (licorice sweets), the Coffee Collective (amazing coffee), Brioche Doree (sweets), and several others. Which shops are your favorite?
Papiroen is a collective of different food trucks in an old warehouse. The trucks and stands are all creatively decorated and the numerous picnic benches are light by candles. I had an incredible pumpkin stew from Copper and Wheat. Just be aware that the prices are a bit higher than elsewhere.
J and I didn't go into Tivoli Gardens, but we did make it a point to stroll by the gates. On our stroll we stopped at the restaurant Tivoli Hallen. Tivoli Hallen seemed very popular for business people and had a very plush interior. As usual, I ordered a roast beef open-faced sandwich and a shot of some type of homemade liquor. It was great!
I aimed to visit Foderbraettet because of a recommendation an EssieButton vlog. Foderbrattet is a gourmet hotdog restaurant with creative choices and amazing side orders. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Copenhagen.
Auto (Griffenfeldsgade 22) was the last restaurant we visited during our trip to Copenhagen. It was a casual restaurant with a fun atmosphere relatively close to our AirBnb.
Notre Dame (Norregade 7) is an incredible home accessories store that kind of made my head spin in wonder.
Across the street from Notre Dame is Le-Bix (Norregade 4). Le-Bix is another design store that appears to specialize in drawer pulls, door knobs, and coat hooks. Everything in the store is color coordinated and incredibly creative. When I have a house someday I will be looking up their website!
