The next time you’re in Copenhagen and are looking for a delicious way to start your morning, be sure to check out these three spots – each for a uniquely different experience.
Located at Gothersgade in Copenhagen since 1987, Atelier September originally began solely as an Art Deco boutique. In 2013, the boutique paused its business and became a workshop and creative studio while chef Frederik Bille Brahe opened the beautiful Café Atelier September in the front portion. Here, he serves artisan coffee and simple natural dishes for breakfast & lunch available throughout the day. And in 2015, Atelier September Butik reopened its doors as both a shop and gallery of its own designs under the direction of designer and crafter Jonas Trampedach.
Atelier September is a peaceful spot to begin your morning – whether it be solo or in good company. The ideal space to enjoy both breakfast and art to inspire you inside and out.
Try ordering the shakshuka, matcha green tea latte, or the comté cheese & soft boiled egg with rye bread for a more traditional Danish breakfast.
Møller Kaffe & Køkken also offers breakfast all day, all seven days of the week. With a list of 25 menu equally delicious items to choose from, every trip to this spot is sure to leave you happy and satisfied. The only issue is narrowing down your choices from the menu. Which is why we’d recommend going in a group of four so you can try ordering just about everything. You can certainly taste the quality in the ingredients.
Be sure to order the soft scrambled eggs, waffle, chicken nuggets, and spicy sausages.
When you think of porridge, you don’t think of something exciting or glamorous. It is simple and oftentimes bland. Even so, it is a dish present in cultures all over the world – a dish people have turned to for the comfort in its simplicity. Enter Grød, the world’s first porridge bar in Copenhagen with a simple goal in mind: to redefine porridge and show the world that it can be delicious, delicate and versatile. Since opening in 2011, Grød has expanded to four locations throughout Copenhagen, offers takeaway and instant porridge, and even sells its own grains and toppings used in house. “Every culture has a version of porridge,” says founder Lasse Andersen. “It’s rice in Asia and Italy, quinoa in South America, grits in North America.” (The Unlikely Dish That’s Become Trendy in Denmark, Entrepreneur)
If you’re in need of a bowl of comfort – whether it be for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – Grød has some unique creation to offer. From risotto to congee to dal, here you’ll find a diverse array of comfort in a bowl.
We recommend ordering the congee (unfortunately only available for evening), the daal (Indian-inspired), and the dessert porridge.
