Best of 2017: New Restaurants, Cafes and Bars in Copenhagen

Another year, another list of fabulous places to try in Copenhagen! One thing that this city has in spades is “new;” there’s never a shortage of new restaurants, bars, hotels and shops closing and opening. With an adventurous and diverse food scene, Copenhagen always delivers on cutting-edge choices, as well as great coffee and a growing list of spots that can fulfil more niche desires, such as vegan options.

Whether you’re in the mood for the perfect cup of coffee, a great meal or cocktail, these are the best new restaurants, cafes and bars that opened this year in Copenhagen:

New Restaurants

Restaurant Barr

Perhaps the most talked-about Copenhagen restaurant of the year, Barr is all about presenting classic European “beer belt” dishes in a beautiful, modern way. Housed in noma’s former digs, Barr is at once both familiar and exciting. Their selection of beers and snaps is a treat, too!

New Cafés

Coffee Collective Jægersborggade & Bernikow

We’re big fans of Coffee Collective, so when we heard they were opening not one but TWO new spots, we jumped for joy. Their Jægersborggade location is a bigger spot on the same street as their previous bar, and the Bernikow location is an old bodega in the centre of the city serving up coffee cocktails and kombucha, as well as traditional coffees. Their interior are as laid-back and minimalist as ever. Yes to all of it!

Jægersborggade

Jægersborggade 57
2200 København N

Alice Ice Cream & Coffee

Well, it’s all right there in the name, isn’t it? Except the name can’t possibly convey how tasty and cosy this Amager cafe really is. Homemade, small-batch ice cream and Koppi coffee? Sounds pretty good to us.

Opening Hours:
Mon – Fri 7:30 am – 6:00 pm

Muf Coffee

In need of a quick coffee to-go, or feel like sitting down with a book and something warm to drink? Muf Coffee on Istegade is your spot. The chic interior is just the beginning; they’re also serving up excellent coffee roasted by Copenhagen Coffee Lab. If you’re lucky, you may just catch Muffin, the adorable Boston Terrier after whom the shop is named.

Mon – Fri 8:30 am – 4:30 pm
Sat 9:30 am – 3:30 pm

Kaffedepartmentet

There are a bunch of great places that have opened recently in Nordvest, including Fovl back in 2016, and Kaffedepartmentet this year. They roast (and sell!) their own beans, make a mean cup of Aeropress coffee, and the interior is a minimalist’s dream. The cafe is especially nice in the warmer months, as they have extensive outside seating.

2400 København NV

Opening Hours:
Every day 8:00 am – 8:00 pm

 
 

Gló

If you’re looking for vegan and/or raw food options, check out Icelandic chain Gló. They have everything from chia seed pudding for breakfast to fantastic, fresh salads. They also have a number of dessert, coffee and juice options. The location in the basement of Magasin is great for a shopping break, or a little refuge during a busy day.

Ancestrale

A cosy little spot in Vesterbro that serves an extensive wine list as well as a few daily nibbles.
