From families to students, friends and couples, Cafe Dyrehaven is an attractive destination for everyone. With an interior of wooden walls and red pendant lights hanging above the low tables, it maintains the spirit of an old pub. From 9am to 12pm, visitors can choose from delicious breakfast options. Highly recommended is the morgenmadstallerken:a plate of eggs benedict, avocado on toast, muesli and yoghurt. Dyrehaven is definitely the place to taste smorrebrood, the traditional Danish open sandwich.

Granolais an exemplary Scandinavian cafe. Cozy and elegant with very carefully chosen decoration, Granola is the type of typical corner cafe you will find packed with locals grabbing a bite before work, or enjoying some after-work drinks. Judging by its name, the sweet breakfast that includes yogurt, granola, jam, pastry, pancakes, a mix of fruits, chocolate spread and fresh wheat bread comes highly recommended. If you’re not craving something sweet, a Danish-style omelette or different types of sandwiches provide customers with delicious savory options too.


Cafe, Thai, $$$
Decorated with red and pink velvet sofas, floral wallpapers and red hanging lamps, Zakabona’s color mania style gives this place its unique identity. This cafe is a must-try for brunch.
