A Guide to the Best Bakeries in Copenhagen

There are oh-so many bakeries in Copenhagen, and many of them are excellent. But how to choose? Whether you’re looking for dense, flavourful dark rye bread, a traditional cinnamon roll to go with your coffee, or a cake to take to a large gathering, there’s a Copenhagen bakery that has what you need.

These are the best bakeries in Copenhagen, including fresh bread and delicious, traditional pastries:

 

Meyers Bageri

Known throughout Copenhagen, Meyers Bageri produces everything from basic breads to delicious pastries. Their croissant and kanelsnegle are widely considered the best in the city, and their breads are excellent. Whether you pick up a bag of rolls for breakfast, a loaf of bread for the week, or some sweet pastries for an afternoon coffee, you really can’t go wrong.

This independent bakery sits on one of the cutest streets in Copenhagen.

This is a great pit-stop for some takeaway goodies and a stroll through the centre of the city or a nearby park.

Mirabelle

There are two key products you need to try at Mirabelle, the bakery launched by former noma-alum Chef Christian Puglisi: the croissant (in the cover image) and the sourdough bread. Both are mind-blowingly good. The bakery is churning out fresh loaves and rolls all day, but there’s also a nice sit-down cafe where you can have delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner options. There’s a bakery takeaway window if you just want your bag of croissants, cups of coffee, and time for a stroll around the buzzy Nørrebro neighborhood.

Vedels Konditori & Bageri

This is one of those locals-swear-by-it spots. Vedels sells both bakery fare like fresh breads as well as custom and beautifully-decorated cakes. Their bakery and cafe in Holbergsgade offers space to sit and enjoy your roll or small cake, while the Øster Farimagsgade location is more for takeaways. Vedels makes wonderful occasion and wedding cakes, if you need something extra special.

Holms Bageri

Though they make all the bakery basics very well: fresh breads, pastries, and sandwiches, there’s something about a Holms Bageri pizza slice that is just irresistible. This is a go-to for a fast (and admittedly not super-healthy) lunch while wandering around the centre of the city or shopping in Illum department store. On warm days, sitting outside of the Købmagergade location is a great people-watching spot.

Lagkagehuset

There are loads of Lagkagehuset locations around Copenhagen, and they all offer the same consistently delicious, fresh baked goods and breads. Their rye bread and spelt bread are both excellent. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, be sure to check out their huge flødeboller or one of their many pastry options. They also have sandwiches, salads and pizza slices for lunch. These tend to be fairly large spaces, so there will be room to sit, although it can get busy in the early morning and around lunch.

Leckerbaer

Simple, beautiful and delicious; it’s easy to see why Leckbaer has become so popular! Though this isn’t a traditional bakery in that they don’t bake bread, they make a range of lovely cookies and pastries, focusing specifically on an update of the classic Danish butter cookie in a number of modern forms and flavor combinations. Get a flight of cookies, a big cup of coffee, and you’re set for the afternoon.

Conditori La Glace

This centrally-located shop is chic and old fashioned in the classic Parisienne way, with a range of beautifully made cakes and other small pastries like macarons, eclairs and more. If you’re looking for a custom-made cake for an occasion, this is the absolute best you can do. They also run by-appointment talks and workshops for cake and chocolate-making, if you’re looking to expand your kitchen repertoire. It’s a great spot for a pot of tea and a plate of sweet treats; make a table reservation if you can, as La Glace is busy every single day. Prices are high but so is the quality.

Rein Van Hauen

Rein Van Hauen is a bakery chain that can be found all over the city, easy to spot thanks to their bright pink logo. They make bread, cakes and other pastries like tebirkes, kanelsnegle, scones and linser. Everything is fresh and delicious, but we particularly recommend their rich homemade cakes and tarts; perfect if you’re heading to a dinner party!

Juno the Bakery

If you enjoy queueing (any Brits out there?), you are really going to like Juno the Bakery. Luckily for those who only see queues as a way to get from point A to point B, the baked goods at the end of the line are worth the wait (which is approximately 10 – 15 minutes on any day of the week, any time of day). Juno is a small Swedish-style bakery that produces bread, cardamon buns and, during the season, semlor. The cardamon buns are, hands down, the best in Copenhagen; sticky, sweet, moist and so flavourful. The semlor are tasty but a little ready, but they are beautifully-assembled, so you get the full Swedish experience. They also sell good coffee; either Koppi roasters or Prolog. There is a counter to sit but this is more of a takeaway spot.
