I have recently been to Copenhagen and here are a few culinary tips, not to be missed if visiting the Danish city.
A top address for the must-have smørrebrød. This small and welcoming place serves smørrebrød with a modern twist and ingredients of top quality. The service is lovely. If coming at peak lunch time, reservation is necessary.

Great coffee/breakfast/brunch place that also serves lunch and dinner. Service is not so great, as a bit pretentious with foreigners but coffee and food are good and the place invites to sit back and relax. One of many great coffee places in Copenhagen. In trendy Vesterbro/Frederiksberg area.

Absolutely trendy fish bar/restaurant in the old port area of Copenhagen. Do not be fooled by the slightly desolate, movie like scenery. The restaurant serves absolute top-notch fish dishes (if you’re not from a sea region, you’ll rarely have fish from this quality and freshness) in a trendy setting, great service (lots of the fish mongers are actually British) and very nice wine menu (mainly French wines, as everywhere in Copenhagen). Reservation is absolutely necessary (otherwise you can sit on one of the few round tables surrounding a big aquarium). Acceptable prices for super-expensive Denmark.

I have unfortunately not been able to dine at this Danish restaurant but have picked it out for my friends. They have loved it! The restaurant is a bit outside the city centre so it’s definitively not a touristy place. The cuisine is Danish with ingredients exclusively sourced from Nordic countries.

Conditori La Glace
For all those with a sweet tooth, the oldest patisserie in Copenhagen is a must-go. Yes, you’ll have to wait for at least 20 minutes in the queue outside, yes this place is full of tourists (but not only), but the result is worth it. The cakes are absolute heaven and the service is lovely and old-style. A true delight.
