FB Instagram Youtube 9 Unmissable spots for the best Breakfast in Copenhagen! | Travel with a Silver Lining

I  like to say that Copenhagen is the continental capital of Scandinavia, and nowhere is that more prevalent than in its food. Cute cafés to trendy restaurants abound in this fun town, with offerings including local flavours as well as international ones. When it comes to breakfast Copenhagen, the Danish capital has offerings for every taste. From cosy little places to hipster heavens, the choices for the best brunch Copenhagen are quite varied!

Vesterbro – My Favorite Area for Breakfast in Copenhagen!

Easily my favourite neighbourhood in the Danish capital, Vesterbro is a hipster dream and a a trendy and upcoming area with a lovely multicultural touch too it. Here you will find design boutiques, small luxury hotels, hip restaurants next to the local kebab place. Right next to touristic Indre By (namely, the city centre), it’s a great area for breakfast Copenhagen. Perfect spot to start your day!

Granola is my absolute fave place for breakfast in Copenhagen, and I try to visit it whenever I’m in town. It’s located on Værnedamsvej, a  cute and lively shopping street with lots of flower shops and cafés. While the simple, cosy and worn-down design isn’t the best, it definitely adds to the french bistro vibe. The cool people and the atmosphere they create have turned Granola into a Danish institution, and it’s full from morning to evening, with tables outside in the summer.

Breakfast, lunch, dinner or a drink in the bar? The choice is yours!

A bit like a French café, it’s a great place for people watching and enjoying incredible meals. Their breakfast options are very varied, offering healthy and fatty choices. I can thoroughly recommend their pancakes, fresh juices and avocado sandwich – but everything I’ve tried here, I’ve loved, so go crazy!

2. GRØD – Porridge All Day Long, But Make It Stylish

An all-day porridge restaurant might not sound enticing, but that’s precisely what GRØD is trying to change. The restaurant’s founder and CEO, Lasse Skjønning Andersen, got out of obesity thanks to adding homemade porridge to his diet. Obsessed, he decided to create the first porridge bar in the world, for one of the best brunch Copenhagen options!

The porridge at GRØD is like none you’ve ever tried before, mixing all kinds of ingredients and with colourful, fun plating. I loved the Oat II for breakfast and the Jerusalem artichoke risotto for lunch. You’ll also find other non-porridge options here, and everything I’ve tried is great, perfect for breakfast or lunch. Loved the setting, and the vibe, too. You can also find GRØD at Norrebro and at street food markets around the city.

My favourite conscious boutique hotel in Copenhagen, Axel Guldsmeden, definitely deserves a spot among the top places for breakfast in Copenhagen. Worth a visit even if you’re not staying here, it’s a unique buffet unlike any other – beginning with its organic approach. Start the day healthily with top-quality, local ingredients, including smoothies, juices, incredible homemade bread and vegetarian salads.

Another Vesterbro darling, California Kitchen does what its name promises: take you right to sunny Cali. A great contendant for the best brunch Copenhagen, they specialise in tasty bowls, salads, snacks and soups inspired by Cali-Mex cuisine. The décor is just as colourful as the plates, bringing me back to the US West Coast. Can highly recommend the Mexican bowl!

The Best Brunch Copenhagen in The Meatpacking District, Kodebyn

Copenhagen has its own Meatpacking District that later became trendy: Kodebyn. For quite some time, this area has been at the forefront of the local food scene, with incredible design eateries despite a rough exterior. With delicious examples of all types, it’s also a prime location to find the best brunch Copenhagen!

The great thing about Mother is how it uses ingredients from Italy to craft a fully Mediterranean experience. For brunch, they play live music and offer one of the most incredible vibes you can ask for to start the day. During the warmer months, you can sit outside and get the Meatpacking vibe!

As long as the sun is still outside, this is perfect

For locals, this is one of the best brunch Copenhagen options, so it’s best to book ahead because it gets crowded. 

Indre By – Breakfast Copenhagen Downtown

Chances are you’ll spend a lot of your time when visiting Copenhagen in the city centre. While it’s a bit crowded to be my favourite area, it’s still unmissable, with its beautiful buildings, boutiques and large shopping areas. Even better: it’s one of the prime breakfast Copenhagen spots! Get to know Indre By in this lovely 3 Hour Bike Tour with Guide

Time for another brunch

Fars Drang easily offers some of the most exquisite breakfast Copenhagen. Super tasty breakfast with offerings like açai and chia pudding, pancakes and delicious croissants. Many say this is the best brunch in town, and I think it’s, at least, a strong contender. Although small, there’s an effort towards a cosy design, mixing a rustic style with an intimate feeling. Loved the open coffee bar in the middle of the restaurants, plus the outdoor seating for people-watching. 

A Copenhagen essential, be sure to book ahead, as it’s very popular!

Time for a coffee

On the same street as Fars Dreng, 20 Grams is less one of the best brunch Copenhagen spots and more one of the top cafés. Serving specialty coffee, the premise revolves around that, so the food isn’t that varied, nor does it have a lot of healthy options. The design is one to fall in love, though! Very hipster-inspired, it’s a cool and innovative oasis in the middle of the city. Broad spaces, books everywhere and cosy spots to work are what make this place special. A super inspiring environment that’s perfect to catch up on work away from home!

8. Café Atelier September – A Blogger’s Paradise

The ultimate bloggers’ rendez-vous in town, Café Atelier September is a photographer’s dream. A super cute place where light takes center stage, the design is bright and relaxed, with a distinctly Danish feel to it. It’s somewhere between a café and an interior design studio.

While the food isn’t as varied as others breakfast Copenhagen spots, everything I tried was great. Loved the fun vibe and the super friendly staff! A cute and cozy place to put on your breakfast in Copenhagen list!

The no 1 French Bistro in Copenhagen – Café Victor!

An institution in the city centre, Café Victor is one of the essential breakfast Copenhagen spots. A rarity in such a hip city, this place has been operational since 1981, and it’s still one of the most iconic in town. Located on the cosiest area of Indre By, it’s a classy, beautiful place to start the day. A hangout for celebrities and locals moguls, it’s also a great place to enjoy a cool atmosphere. Sit outside when the weather is nice and try their incredible eggs Benedict!
