4 days of breakfast in Copenhagen

19 June 2018

If there's one Danish word I'll remember after spending four days in Copenhagen, it has to be morgenmad, meaning breakfast. Most coffee shops in Copenhagen are open from early morning, ready to serve up full brunch plates and traditional pastries. We spent the week indulging in cinnamon roles and bread with cheese while discovering some of the city's many breakfast places. On our list: Cafe Taxa, Mad & Kaffe, Atelier September and Wulff & Konstali.


Cafe Taxa

In the hip Nørrebro neighbourhood near Jægersborggade, you’ll find Cafe Taxa. They serve their morgenmad until 4pm each day, so there’s no excuse to skip breakfast. We enjoyed some blueberry pancakes and a lovely chia seed pudding with almond milk. If the weather permits, find yourself a seat on their beautiful terrace and order an ice-cold latte. Thank me later.

 Atelier September

An art boutique turned lunch cafe, Atelier September is based just a few blocks from buzzing Nyhavn, and yet the perfect spot to spend a relaxing morning with coffee and croissants. Other than the breakfast basics, you can take your pick from various dishes like burrata with fennel and blood orange or their celebrated avocado sandwich.

Mad & Kaffe

I’m inclined to say Mad & Kaffe was my favorite breakfast experience in Copenhagen. We visited their Vesterbro venue and were treated to a delicious ‘morning plate’. The idea is to pick 3, 5 or 7 dishes from the menu, which all come in little bowls so you can try lots of different things at once. There’s plenty choices from scrambled eggs with mushrooms and fried chorizo sausages to a classic Danish poppy pastry. The highlight for me was the sweet apple compote with almonds and whipped cream - it’s heavenly!

Wulff & Konstali

Wulff & Konstali operates on the same principle, though you can only have brunch at their location near Amager Beach, which unfortunately we only realized until we arrived at one of their other spots. Luckily all of their food shops sell lots of sweet pastries like chocolate croissants and cinnamon rolls, and homemade paninis for lunch. Great for a quick on-the-go breakfast!

On our first day in Copenhagen we were walking through Snaregade and Magstræde, two of the oldest streets in the city, when we stopped to snap these photos. It’s been a while since I’ve felt as comfortable in an outfit as this one. Lately I feel like my style has been evolving as I seem to be drawn toward more classic silhouettes. I’ve literally come to a point where I want to throw out half of my wardrobe. Is this me growing up?

In any case, this Mango top has become one of my new favorite pieces. I just love its fluttery sleeves and crossed front design. The waistband makes it look really flattering paired with an A-line skirt, which is always a staple for me. I’m pretty pleased with this polkadot version from Mint&Berry that I recently got my hands on. A skirt that has pockets is always a win!

Wishlist: Summer '18 essentials

05 June 2018

As I’m always wishing it could be autumn 365 days a year, you can understand it took me a while to get in the summer mood. Luckily our trip to Copenhagen - posts about that coming soon - sped up the process, along with a few trends that I’m currently stacking my wardrobe with… Read on to discover my current color crush, accessory obsessions and other summer essentials.


Lately I’ve been smitten with all kinds of yellow pieces, from intense yellows to paler lemon shades. A simple yellow jumpsuit combined with some golden jewellery or a bright yellow pair of shoes to spice up an outfit is as good as it gets for me this summer. I’m currently crushing on these soft mustard sandals by Mango so I'm keeping my eye on this website for a discount code. I've recently discovered it and it comes in really handy for finding all promotions at Zalando, ASOS and more.


Straw hats, braided leather shoes, jute bags, I want it all. The neutral beige and tan tones just match so well with everything. I especially need to get my hands on a pair of woven mules and I’m really digging the understated net bag look as well.


Can’t really call this a trend as it’s my everyday style inspiration, but lately I’ve noticed some sixties vibes in stores as well. Zara, Mango and Urban Outfitters all have some classic cat eye sunglasses, high waisted shorts and puffy sleeve tops in their collections. I love this button detailed version from ASOS.
