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!
