Brunch like a Scandi in the Danish capital

Wulff & Konstali

For indecisive people who spend way too long perusing menus, Wulff & Konstali in Nørrebro is the place to go. Settle down amid Scandi interiors of pale wood and blue tiles, and choose ingredients from the café's seasonal menu to create a smorgasbord of delightful delicacies, including grapefruit sprinkled with rosemary sugar and avocado drizzled with sesame oil.

TorvehallerneKBH Market

A popular weekend breakfast spot among locals, this covered market has stalls catering to every taste bud.

Far's Dreng

Mad & Kaffe

On a summer's day, nab a table outside Mad & Kaffe's Vesterbro branch to enjoy breakfast basking in the sun. Select your favourite brunch items from the menu on which avocado topped with tarragon mayo and salted almonds, coconut granola with a dollop of yoghurt and a selection of pastries make choosing just one dish a difficult feat.

restaurant

Mirabelle Bakery

This artisan bakery serves freshly baked bread, pastries and cakes in typically Scandi surrounds. Wooden tables and geometric tiles decorate interiors, but we can guarantee your eyes (and stomachs) will be transfixed by the menu - the sourdough french toast topped with homemade ricotta and apples is a winner.

restaurant

Djuus Copenhagen

There's no better way to kickstart your day than with a glass of fresh juice. Order a zingy orange-and-ginger drink or a smooth green juice for a vitamin-packed breakfast. If that doesn't fill you up, pair it with a buttery Danish pastry to nibble on as you wander round Copenhagen's Østerbro neighbourhood.

Grød

For those who enjoy brunch closer towards lunchtime than dawn, Grød is the place to be. Offering precisely what it says on the tin, Grød serves porridge all day long. Head to its flagship store on Jægersborggade, where porridge such as the "apple chia special" is served with chia seeds, apple compote, roasted coconut flakes and peanut butter. Those who prefer savoury dishes should opt for the "mushroom barley-otto".
