Last Minute Trip: Copenhagen 1

DSC_0337I made a last minute trip to Copenhagen (from Berlin), and boy am I glad I did! Copenhagen is full of great foodie places, coffee and beautiful architecture. Before I headed there I did a lot of research on good places to eat, drink etc. So here is a quick low down on why you need to go to Copenhagen – enjoy!

DSC_0365Let’s start with Nyhavn harbour – in the centre of the city you can walk down to the harbour where you’ll find some great resturants, a harbour full of boats and beautifully coloured buildings. Cap Horn is a great place to eat, especially if you’re going to the Danish Royal Theatre after, which is a must. I went to watch the ballet adaptation of Thomas Mann’s Death in Venice by John Neumeier.

DSC_0372If you don’t want to eat near the harbour (as it’s usually pretty busy), then try Tony’s which is hidden down a quiet street behind the theatre. Tony’s was recommended by a local, it serves simple yet seriously beautiful Italian food – I highly recommend it.



Compared to London they’re not so big on their street food markets – but I found one which was near Christiania, called Copenhagen Street Food. It was in a warehouse, undercover, with loads of independent food trucks all doing their own thing – the smells were amazing.


Another great food market to check out is Torvehallerne where I found Grod which only serves porridge – being a big porridge gal I was pretty impressed. Grod do a range of sweet, savoury, gluten free and special grain porridges.

I would recommend staying safe when choosing as some of the healthier porridges do need an acquired taste. You can have your porridge in or take it away.


DSC_0161Torvehallerne is solely food based, so if you’re like me then you will be in heaven. Whilst walking around I found some great fishmongers, patisseries,  meats, cheeses, the finest chocolate shops – you name it!





Laura’s Bakery is a must for some traditional Danish pastries.

DSC_0204I dived in for an awesome cinnamon bun, which was surprisingly moist, topped with a lovely vanilla style cream cheese.

DSC_0199If you head outside of Torvehallerne you will find more food trucks and stalls, with yet again more delicious food.
