A Guide to the Best Brunch in Copenhagen

Is there anything more hyggeligt, more indulgent or delicious, than a long, leisurely brunch? By yourself with a good book, with a group of friends to debrief from the night before, or with family for some time together; however you like to enjoy yourself, there’s a brunch in Copenhagen that’s right for you.

A Copenhagen-style brunch is either plated or buffet-style, and usually includes some bread options (rolls and/or pastry), butter, cheese, yoghurt, juice and coffee. Those are the bare bones, but restaurants across the city have their own special take on the meal, including many vegetarian and vegan options.

Here’s where to find the best brunch in Copenhagen, from Nørrebro to Vesterbro to Amager and every neighborhood in between:

Plated Brunch in Copenhagen

Wulff & Konstali

This beloved brunch spot actually has three locations in the city, but only two of them serve brunch. At Wulff & Konstali, you get a personal menu where you check off the items you’d like, either 5 for 129 DKK or 7 for 159 DKK. There are 22 items to choose from, including pastries and bread, eggs of various kinds, meats and specialities like chia porridge with roasted almonds and mango-orange compote. The menu changes, so check their website for updates.

One of the best cheap-but-filling brunch options in the city! This Frederiksberg-based bakery has a “lille” and “store” morning plate (morgentallerken) for 60 DKK and 100 DKK, respectively. The plates include a roll with butter, jam, and cheese, a pastry of your choice, coffee and juice.

Souls

Certainly the best vegan cafe, and one of the best cafes in Copenhagen, period. Souls is now famous for their delicious plant-based brunch plate, but you don’t have to be vegan to love it.

Their other four plates are a bit more intense, including items like chia seed porridge with mango-vanilla compote, or American-style pancakes.

Taxa

Sitting on the corner of Stefansgade and Hørsholmgade, just next to Jægersborggade, Taxa has a tasty menu and laid-back atmosphere. Their extensive outdoor seating is perfect for a sunny morning, and their cosy interior is just right in winter. Though their burger and fries (especially the fries) are well-loved in the city, their brunch is a treat as well. Their most simple offering is a sourdough roll with butter, apple compote and cheese; top notch with a cup of steaming hot coffee!

Pixie

This busy Østerbro cafe is a sister-restaurant to Taxa, and the menus are almost identical, including their brunch. The vibe, however, is entirely local. There’s a good deal of outdoor seating for the warmer months, and a casual, shabby-chic interior. Their cheapest and most simple breakfast is the same as Taxa’s: a sourdough roll with butter, apple compote and cheese.

Parterre

One of the hidden gems of Copenhagen, Parterre is a father-and-son small cafe at basement level in the village-like neighborhood of Christianshavn.

Royal Smushi Cafe

If you’re thinking of spending the morning shopping in the centre of the city, why not start your day off at Royal Smushi? Though mostly known for their delicious smørrebrød, their brunch plate is fantastic as well. It includes pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, yoghurt, and a bread roll. The cafe is in a small courtyard off of the main pedestrian street Strøget; even though it’s in a very busy area, the courtyard feels totally private, making it a lovely little retreat.
