If you’re like me, you base half your holiday on which restaurants to try out. So this deserves a post of its own. Here is my other Copenhagen post with everything we did on our trip to Denmark back in November.
Where to Eat in Copenhagen
Copenhagen has a really amazing foodie scene, however it can be a little pricey. To get around this we found that the food markets made it really affordable to eat out over most of the weekend, and then we took ourselves out for one special dinner which was definitely worth it! Also after both days of walking around the city, we took a bottle of wine and some snacks to enjoy in our apartment – the great thing about staying in an Airbnb!

The photo really doesn’t give justice to how cosy, festive, and atmospheric it was in here. It was like a warm little oasis that we stumbled across when we were halfway across a bridge, feeling like we were about to freeze from icy winds and rain (dramatic much). There was a massive variety of stalls to choose from. We got hot chocolates and falafels to share and warmed up by an open fire. I think this one might be closing soon but they are building another one very close by.
This indoor food market was a little smaller and busier but in the centre of the city and had lots of sandwiches, delis, pizzas and healthy options.
One a little off the beaten track. This is a favourite of my friend’s and she wanted us to swim in the lake there on Sunday morning but I conveniently forgot my bikini. The little cabin by the lake is so hygge and peaceful, filled with candles and seating for just a handful of people. It’s very casual (like, zero customer service but very friendly). Help yourself to bread and jam and sit back with a coffee. As I said, it’s a little out of the way but we walked back to the centre via Christiania and Paper Island which was a perfect route.
For our dinner on Saturday night we wanted to try something Nordic but that also catered to coeliac disease. They were really great here, even baking me some fresh bread. We had the four course set menu with wine and it was all amazing! We raved about it for approximately three days afterwards.
My friend took us here on our last night for a casual meal with a homemade cooking style and really good cocktails. They cater well for vegetarians and it’s a nice relaxed, cosy atmosphere.
We planned to go to the trendy Mad & Kaffe or Grød for breakfast one day but they were both busy (even on a Monday) and we didn’t feel like waiting, so we stumbled across this place. The staff were really friendly and it turned out everything was gluten free so I was super happy!
Let me know if you try any of these places in Copenhagen!
