Copenhagen Food

Pin It
We had such a great time on our long weekend to Copenhagen, and as always I took too many photos. We ate very well on our visit but unfortunately this time around our budget couldn't quite stretch to Noma! 

The highlights for me were Torvehallerne which are 2 indoor food markets full of bakeries, restaurants & shops. We went straight here after stepping off the plane. I'm not the biggest fan of cupcakes but I fell in love with the danish pastry offerings from Agnes Cupcakes and spent a while trying to get my head around how they made them, I still don't quite know so if anyone can shed some light please do.
Of course we couldn't go to Denmark without indulging in their amazing bakeries and especially the pastries. Snegle, which translates to snail (a cinnamon swirl to you and me) is probably the most famous and delicious but we did get to sample many other types.

As well as bakeries there are many micro breweries dotted around Copenhagen and I'm glad we got to sample some local beer whilst at Torvehallerne.
We got to indulge in some very tasty brunches whilst away. My favourite was from Cafe Lyst which consisted of cured meats, scrambled eggs, cheese, rye bread, yogurt, granola & honey and fruit. This seemed to be a pretty standard combination in most of the places we went to although some were with bacon and others with salmon.

We also made it to the Coffee Collective which is on the same street at Cafe Lyst. These guys have their own roaster and serve the best coffee in town according to some people. Lots of customers get their breakfast from the bakery on the other side of the road before sitting down outside for a coffee. We thoroughly enjoyed coffee, if we were staying longer I'd definitely go there every morning.

On our last day we borrowed some bikes and got a tour around the city from our friend. We stopped for a late breakfast at Cafe Hoeg's where I indulged in smoked salmon and poached eggs. Very tasty food and quite cheap for Copenhagen prices with breakfast being around £6.
On a separate note, the photos from the last Plate Lickers supper club are coming very soon.
