For a bite on the go, stop by Copenhagen Pastry. Copenhagen offers authentic Danish pastries reminiscent of the owner’s childhood spent in Denmark. The Kringles (pastry filled with almond paste and custard and topped with thin-sliced almonds and sugar) and the Copenhagens (a flaky pastry with yellow custard in the middle) are popular choices. Paired with coffee or tea, they make a perfect to-go meal that won’t hurt the wallet.
