I can’t even begin to describe in how many places I have been lately for brunch and breakfast…I have been incredibly busy to find time to make a detailed post, but at least I will try to come back with some info and photos of the places I’ve been!
Weekends are equal to food and relaxation in my mind so I hope you will at least see the first one in my pictures!
This weekend’s brunch took place in Cafe Bang & Jensen, situated in Istedgade close to Vesterbro and Enghave. My experience from this place is that of a typical danish cafe: for some reason Danish cafe owners like to promote the very very old style for the decoration, meaning if something is as damaged as possible then it’s good. I actually did not take pictures of the inside, but you will see this in most Danish cafes: if a chair is damaged then it’s a keeper. If something is rusty, it gives some sort of vintage style. In other countries cafes tend to be as modern as possible, and you would expect to see that in Denmark, due to the nordic modern design etc, but nope, no way.
Anyway, take a look at the food!
Enjoying a cup of coffee and a hot chocolate in Torvehallerne, mini market buildings but filled with gourmet suggestions and not the usual danish treats. Here at one of the cafes inside, enjoying a cappuccino, hot chocolate, apple pie and my top-favourite danish dessert (I buy it everywhere I go) hindbærsnitte.
I have even made a list of the best hindbærsnitte to buy (just ask if you need)!
Wandering around Copenhagen at night and gazing at what seems to me as Danish design or at least Nordic or Scandinavian, I would say. It certainly differs from the rest of Europe and is mostly characterized as modern and simple.
