If you’re a coffee enthusiast like myself, there is no greater city to visit for the tasty brew than Copenhagen, Denmark. There are so many fantastic coffee creations to try and no shortage of great shops. Check out our list of the top Copenhagen coffee shops you need to visit.
Østergade 61, 1100 København K, Denmark
Cafe Norden was the first eatery we stopped at on our trip to Copenhagen and within minutes we were swept up in the city’s beauty. The restaurant is a large, elegant corner building that serves up a number of delectable menu options. We went a little crazy and ordered everything from a smørebrød plate to chocolate cake. Also, coffee. 😉 Everything was great. We tried a mocha drink and an iced coffee – both of which I’d highly recommend.
Øster Voldgade 4A, 1350 København, Denmark
Our Airbnb was located near the popular Rosenborg Castle in the King’s Garden. On our first night, I noticed a tiny coffee spot at one of the entrance gates with a little outdoor seating. I knew this would be a pit stop when we visited the garden but I wasn’t expecting to love it so much! It became our go-to spot for our morning coffee that we would take with us on walks. It was also the last cup of coffee we had while we were in town. Make sure you pop in for a quick cup next time you’re at the Garden.
Toldbodgade 55, 1253 København K, Denmark
This shop is located near the popular tourist destination The Little Mermaid statue (Den lille Havfrue) but I say skip the pint-sized statue and grab some coffee instead. The bright and airy Kafe Krone is located on a quiet street away from the major city hustle. The shop itself actually serves to help people by providing job training and selling recycled furniture and art from local artists. You can see more photos of the shop and read more of my thoughts by checking out this Coffee Break post.
Gammel Kongevej 1, st., 1610 København V, Denmark
This small coffee shop is well known for their inexpensive breakfast plates which are so worth the trip over. They also serve the local favorite Estate Coffee which is the cherry on top for this low key shop.
Nørre Farimagsgade 70, 1364 København K, Denmark
This cafe is known for their “scientific” approach to coffee. As the name suggests, the shop uses advanced brewing methods like brewing coffee in a flask over a bunsen burner. Some might say they are just “experimenting” but I thought it was one of the best cups of no frill coffee I had in the city. Read more of my thoughts on Kent Kaffe in this Coffee Break post.
Fiolstræde 10, 1171 København K, Denmark
This place is the quintessential comfortable, multi-purpose coffee house. At Cafe Paludan, you’ll be surrounded by wall to wall books, a friendly staff, tasty food and great coffee. It has everything you need for a quiet sip, study session or get together with friends.
I saved the best for last! As this previous post mentions, The Coffee Collective just brews some damn fine coffee. You can find these coffee kings in multiple locations around the city so if you are ever near any of their shops, I urge you to stop in. We had a delicious cup at the city market Torvehallerne along with a cinnamon roll from Laura’s Bakery. Then we made it a point to visit the Jægersborggade location to grab another cup along with some delicious knotted bread from Meyers Bageri. I highly recommend giving either experience a try.
