In a narrow alley in the heart of Nørrebro are gathered some of Copenhagen’s most stylish spots. Vegan cafes and restaurants, organic hair salons, tattoo studios and fashionable boutiques of all kinds situated next to each other make Jægersborggade a hangout spot for the city’s hip(ster) crowd.
The Coffee Collective
The Coffee Collective is known for making one of the best coffees in Copenhagen. Some people prefer their stylish coffee shop in Frederiksberg while others head to the cozy hip cafe in Nørrebro’s vibrant street Jægersborggade. Both places though serve high-quality coffee collected from farms around the world and prepared by experienced baristas.
Relæ is partially the reason Jægersborggade got gentrified few years ago and is nowadays one of the most hip streets in Copenhagen. Approximately 8 or 9 years ago the narrow alley in the heart of Nørrebro was considered one of the city’s sketchy streets and definitely wasn’t brimming with cafes and galleries. Everything changed when Christian Puglisi decided to open a fine dining restaurant with a strong focus on sustainability named Relæ. Nowadays, the Michelin-starred restaurant, has been awarded as the Most Sustainable Restaurant by the SRA and is considered one of the top in Denmark serving a wide range of dishes all made from organic ingredients.
