The Danes are probably one of the most coffee drinking nations in Europe, if not the world. We have a special coffee culture and you can almost find a coffee shop on every street corner in our vibrant capital. The coffee options is many and a fresh brewed coffee is almost always enjoyed with some kind of cake or Wienerbrød as we call it. A popular option is to grab a coffee-to-go and take a walk in a nearby park. I have listed a few favorites among the endless list of coffee shop that you might find in the our vibrant city.
1 # Møllers Kaffe og Køkken
Møllers Kaffe og Køkken is a spacious and sleek coffee shop, located in the vibrant area Nørrebro, which has earned itself a cult reputation amongst brunch and coffee lovers alike. Asides from serving specialty coffee using beans from a variety of roasters, their brunch menu has a special build your own brunch koncept – a firm favourite amongst their customers. And everything is organic! You can also order sandwiches and salads if you prefer to eat lunch here. Make sure to get here early: there is always a queue!

2 # Original Coffee
A simpel coffee bar that serves excellent fresh roasted coffee and some simple side-orders. Their main location is on Østergade, which is a part of the famous shopping walking street ‘Strøget’ and this place is perfect to get a little coffee-break when you are in your shop-til-you-drop mode. Try one of their homemade Wienerbrød with your coffee.

3 # Copenhagen Coffee Lab
If you enjoy specialty coffee, Copenhagen is a city in which you are spoilt for choice: however, nowhere does coffee quite like Copenhagen Coffee Lab. This minimalist yet cosy coffee shop is dedicated to serving up proper coffee without the frills: you won’t find decaf beans, or substitute milks here. Perhaps slightly pretentiously, Copenhagen Coffee Lab insists that you sit and truly appreciate your coffee – The barista convinced me to go with a coffee without milk (which was a big challenge for me) and whoaa! this is definitely the best ‘black’ coffee I have tried for a long time.
Where: Boldhusgade 6, 1062 København K

4 # Atalier September
This is the sweetest vegetarian spot ever! Atelier September used to be an antiques shop, and you can still see vintage details everywhere in the small room. Big windows let in a lot of light, the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. Atelier September has developed into a hang out for hip locals and members of the fashion crowd, a fact that maybe explains why their signature dish, toasted rye bread with sliced avocado, chives and chili, comes with a rather hefty price tag attached to it. This small splurge is definitely worth it, though, so dive right in.
Where: Gothersgade 30, 1123 København K

5 # Mirabelle
Mirabelle is actually a bakery which serves organic handcrafted breads and pastry. Through the windows it doesn’t look that impressive, but when you actually stand in the middle of the café it does. The floor is made out of white and dark blue tiles, the lighting invites you to sit down and talk for a while and the open windows in to the bakery shows, that what you eat, is baked right now. And the interior here is definitely Instagram-worthy! Try one of their homemade croissant, that literary melts in your mouth. YUM!
Where: Guldbergsgade 29, 2200 København N

It has since grown into a smaller chain and has now several coffee shops spread around in Copenhagen and the suburb areas. This is a typical local hang-out spot and if you love their coffee as much as the Danes, then you can purchase a bag of Ricco’s special coffee blend in their shop.
