Here’s the very long over-due second half of my post about my trip to Copenhagen (you can see the first post about my trip here: When in Cophenhagen | Places to Visit). For me, the best thing about going on holiday or visiting a new place, without a doubt, is trying the local cuisine. I was fortunate to travel to Copenhagen with my very travel-savvy and organised friend, Nuzhat. We ate at some delicious places, which she researched and checked the ratings for beforehand. I wanted to share these with you all as I would highly recommend checking them out if you have the opporunity to do so. Copenhagen is quite an expensive city, so do expect to be out of pocket somewhat after a visit there. But it is without a doubt, worth it!
Listed in no order of preference, here are some of the yummy places I visited:
1. Katz Cafe
Upon landing, we heading to this place as we were h-a-n-g-r-y. I went with Nuzhat’s choice of food as I couldn’t decide what I was in the mood for. You can rarely go wrong with salmon and pasta and I thought this dish was deliciously creamy and filling – I struggled to finish it anyway!
2. Paludan Bog
Absolutely loved this place! It’s a book filled cafe with rows and rows of books surrounded with tables and people chatting over food and cofffee. Absolutely loved the vibe in here and the food was pretty good too!
3. Friends & Brgrs
This is like a fast food place and I really loved the vegan burger and fries I had here. It was a late night excusion and I practically inhaled my meal. Here’s to the aspiring vegan life. After a great day of sightseeing, napping, eating pastries and consuming several lattes – it was just what I needed. Literally inhaled it in about 5 seconds.
4. Torvehallerne Supermarket
There are lots of places to eat and buy food stuffs in this huge supermarket – which is comprised of a variety of stalls that you’d expect to find in a street market (but of much higher quality I would say) – the good thing about this however is that it’s all under one large glass roof, the atmosphere is wonderful, and in an unexpected way, inspiring – although that may be due to the conversations about life and future plans Nuzhat and I were having!
I can’t remember the name of the stall in which paid for this coffee but it was INCREDIBLE. It was also probably the most expensive coffee I’ve ever paid for (think it was about £4.50) but as it was SO GOOD I felt like my money was well spent. Ha. One of my favourite things about Copenhagen is the coffee and the coffee shop culture. I would without a doubt be a pauper if I lived there as I would be spending all my money on visting all the cafes and trying all the coffee!
Expensive but DELICIOUS. We decided to try this place for dinner on our final night in Copenhagen. The atmosphere and staff were absolutely lovely too. I had the baked cod, parsley, miso & apple main – would highly recommend!
Ah Copenhagen – the land of cute cafes and bakeries! I tried a lot of pastries and cakes during my visit, but I went back to Lagkagehuset for this insanely yummy chocolate bread. I also bought several pastries – there were so many different types on offer – for the flight back home ❤ . Why are carbs so irresistible?
7. Next Door Cafe
This was our last meal in Copenhagen before our flight back to the UK. We chose it as it was highly recommended online. I went for fresh juice (the orange, apple, carrot and ginger concoction), and a black bean and mozarella wholemeal sandwich that they put together especially for us, because I couldn’t make my mind up about what I wanted! Copenhagen is also, to my pleasant surprise, very vegetarian and vegan friendly 🙂 .
That’s a wrap! I would love to know if you’ve been to any of these places (and what you thought?) or if you’re planning on visiting. You can connect with me on social media, on here or comment below.
