Nestled in one of Copenhagen’s most vibrant streets, The Living Room is the perfect place for a pit-stop while exploring the city center. With comfy couches and sofas, a fireplace and dim lighting, savouring one of the many warm beverages at this cosy coffee shop really feels like you’re in a friend’s living room.

2. Sing Tehus

Cafe, Tea Room, Danish, Japanese, European

With its classy tea kettles, the high-quality teas that are directly imported from Japan and its simple but high-class decor, Sing Tehus is the ideal tea place for tea experts. Grab a table on the second floor and savour one of the numerous types of teas in the teahouse’s relaxed atmosphere.

Shelves filled with all kinds of books, large round wooden tables and stylish lamps hanging from the ceiling create a sophisticated but at the same time relaxed atmosphere that makes Paludan Bog and Café one of locals’ (and especially students’) favorite coffeehouses. Its high-quality coffee and the great variety of dishes is also another good reason that Paludan is usually packed from morning until evening.

4. Sonny

Cafe, Danish, European, French

Sonny opened only a year ago but it already is on the top of the city’s coffee-lovers’ list. The people behind Sonny share a great love for coffee and wine and they have a long experience in selecting, roasting and preparing a good cup of coffee or serving a glass of flavourful wine.

5. Tjili Pop

With three separate rooms, one for smokers and the other two for those who prefer to have their coffee in a smoke-free atmosphere, Tjili Pop has plenty of space for everyone. Each room is decorated with different items but each one of them gives the impression that every single thing is bought from a flea market and someone with excellent taste artistically combined them to create a cosy and stylish place. Warm and cold beverages, hamburgers and different types of desserts are served from morning until night.

6. Tea:licious Cafe

Cafe, Tea Room, Danish, European, Asian

Danes love coffee but they never say no to a bubble tea. Tea:licious Café serves different varieties of teas such as fruit flavoured, lattes and even tailored teas made of premium blends based on each guest’s taste. Ask the experienced baristas which popping bobas, jellies or tapioca match with your tea and create a unique, refreshing drink.

7. Perch’s Tea Room

Tea Room, Asian, European, Danish

Perch’s Tea Room is one of the oldest and most known teahouses in Copenhagen. It has 150 different types of tea served in Royal Copenhagen porcelain and various sandwiches, scones and sweets for those who want to accompany their favorite warm beverage with a delicious snack

Serving high-quality coffee in a Scandinavian-design decorated space, Coffee Collective combines locals’ two greatest loves. With two coffeehouses, one located in the high-class Frederiksberg neighbourhood and the other on Jægersborggade, Nørrebro’s hippest street, the trendy coffeehouse attracts a mixed crowd of millennials and stylish locals.

9. Risteriet Coffee Studio

If we had to choose one street that boasts Copenhagen’s best coffee shops, it would be Studiestræde, so Risteriet couldn’t be located anywhere else but in this scenic alley. Coffee specialists will be thrilled to discover so many exceptional varieties while the rest can just ask the experienced baristas for a recommendation.

10. Bankeråt

Cafe, Danish, European

Bankeråt is popular for two things: its quirky decoration and its brunch. Every single person who has visited this café has loved both of them. The spooky dolls and bizarre paintings that hang on the walls create a unique interior that is nothing like the minimalist Scandinavian design. Aside from coffee and a great variety of drinks, Bankeråt features also a great food menu, with the English brunch being locals’ top choice.

11. The Laundromat Café

Laundromat is one of the most stylish coffeehouses in the city, and it’s the only place where you can do your laundry while catching up with your friends with a warm cappuccino. Yes! You heard that right, and it’s not some kind of metaphor. You can actually use one of the washing machines while you grab a bite or indulge in a milkshake. The first Laundromat opened in 2004 in Nørrebro but nowadays you can also find a Laundromat in Østerbro and Frederiksberg.

12. Cafe Bang & Jensen

Cafe, European, Danish

12. Cafe Bang & Jensen
When Bang and Jensen opened their first café on Istedgade street nearly 10 years ago, they didn’t imagine that 20 years later the neighborhood would become one of the most vivid nightlife districts in the city. Nowadays, Cafe Bang & Jensen is surrounded by various bars and restaurants but it still preserves its unique original atmosphere. The only difference is that tasty snacks and sandwiches have been added to the menu. It is open every day from morning until 2am, but if you drop by on a Saturday evening you’ll get to enjoy the bar’s delicious frozen cocktails.
