Other Danes may disagree, but I feel like brunch is a relatively new phenomenon in Denmark… like, within the last ten years or so? Or maybe it’s just because it has only recently (like within the last ten years or so) been introduced to me. EITHER WAY, I know it is an age-old phenomenon in the rest of the world, and probably also in Denmark, and most likely it has just been introduced to me late (let me take a moment to side-eye everyone in my life), but, new or old, IT IS WONDERFUL.
My absolute FAVORITE brunch-place in Copenhagen is Café 22; a little café located right by one of the city’s five lakes. The atmosphere is wonderful, the view is gorgeous, and the brunch is SPECTACULAR. A little tip: On weekends, they have a brunch BUFFET for roughly the same price*. That means pancakes, bacon, fruit, bread, cake, scrambled eggs, and cocktail sausages (and a whole bunch of other things) UNLIMITED, Guys. God, I love that place. As does the car-tire around my waist. Everything I own that isn’t stretch = not a big fan.
So, that is my first tip to exploring Copenhagen.
*= It may seem pricey to foreigners, but everything is more expensive here. Like previously mentioned, café coffee in Denmark is the most expensive in the world. I say go enjoy your brunch, because this is pretty much the standard price.
