Eating in Copenhagen

where to eat in Copenhagen, Denmark I ate many amazing things in Copenhagen, but these are some of my favorites!

the smorrebrød at Cafe Charlottenborg

The best meal you'll eat at a museum. Really, not only was this open-faced sandwich gorgeous and delicious, but the atmosphere at Café Charlottenborg was perfect for some travel journal time.

the risotto at Grød

When I was sitting in Grød chowing down on my risotto, a woman started talking to me in Danish and seemed confused that I didn't understand. Do I look Danish? No. But it's a very international city, so who would know? She, of course, spoke perfect English so I was able to say, yes this dish is amazing and you should totally get it.

the cappuccino at the coffee collective One of my favorite things about traveling is that I allow myself to basically get a cappuccino everyday. I went to The Coffee Collective twice. Both times were fantastic. There's a great bakery across the street that should be on this list, but I didn't take any photos of their buttery-danishes.

the ice cream at Vaffelbageriet

So, it's worth going to Tivoli just so you can eat this crepe with two scoops of ice cream and chocolate sauce from Vaffelbageriet, which means waffle house. It's been ranked one of the top ice cream shops in the world and now I know why. This is a case when traveling alone really pays off--I did not have to share with anyone!
