We stopped in here for some lunch and were not disappointed! it's a cosy bookshop come cafe and definitely has they Hygge feel about it! Ihad the warm pate with the rye bread and my husband had the herring 3 ways. Food is tasty and very cheap compared to many other places. Highly recommended.

i made an habit of walking 15 minutes from the hotel i was staying just to sip my morning coffee everyday in this bar. the service is good, the pastries are delicious but it's the beautiful ambient that capture you, surrounded by books looking outside the window at the city that slowly wakes up.

Right next to the university, the atmosphere is relaxed and with that student-like feeling. Self-service restaurant, the food was very delicious and quick to arrive.

Had our eyes on this cafe since the first day we arrived, and had a very very nice brunch there. The place has a very pleasant quirky vibe to it. I would say you shouldn't miss it if you are in Copenhagen.

Visited here on our last day in Copenhagen. Book shop come cafe is very unique. Menu varied from sandwiches and fruit to chilli con carne. I myself went for the chilli and it was wonderful and reasonably priced!

This café is located in what used to be a bookstore just next to the University Library. Some years ago the place was refurbished and turned into a combined café & bookstore. Nowadays it seems that it is more café than books. The emphasis is clearly on creating a cavernous university inspired atmosphere with books piled everywhere. Don't fret over... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
