Copenhagen’s Hyggeligste Places to Get Coffee

The Coziest Places to Get Caffeinated in the Danish Capital
THESE ARE MY FAVORITE PLACES IN COPENHAGEN FOR COFFEE HOUSE HYGGE

I love coffee. It’s true. I do. And lucky for me (and you!) there is an incredible coffee culture here in Copenhagen. Come to Copenhagen, she said. Danes definitely know how to brew a delicious cup. And while I will never turn down a date to seek out a new source for a cuppa joe, the places I’ve shared here are my favorites. For now.

But what makes me giddy beyond a simple cup of caffeinated bean juice? An adorable place to enjoy it. A coffee here is expensive so when the place itself becomes part of the experience, it’s worth it to plant for a bit to soak it up while you sip. It’s also more sustainable. No wasted cup to trash. Time out for you, better for the environment. Win. And win. To make it on my favorite coffee house list, you must have :

A | Good coffee. Duh. Bonus points for sustainably sourced, fair trade beans.
B | Good atmosphere. Bonus points for uniqueness, design, decor and candles.
C | Good service. I know – this can be controversial in Copenhagen. Service isn’t job one here. But if it’s really bad, you didn’t make my list. Don’t take yourself so seriously. It’s coffee. We all want a cup.

So step up, sit down and take a sip. These are my go-to, take you to, meet you there, cycle by soon, happy to hygge, top of my coffee time list. Did I miss your favorite? Please feel free to share! In alphabetical order, I offer you my curation of the…

10 Coziest Places to Get Coffee in Copenhagen
1 | Andersen & Maillard

This unassuming spot is almost easy to miss on your way up vibrant and colorful Nørrebrogade. But don’t. Miss it that is. It would be a mistake. Andersen & Maillard, a stone’s throw from Assisten’s Kirkegaard, is a double threat. A damn fine coffee roastery plus a damn good pastry place. You must try the almond croissants. Seriously sinful and perfect with your cup of house coffee. Scandi minimal meets jungalow and simple design inside with tables to take your coffee out when the sun is shining. Slurp it down. Soak it up.

2 | Cupenhague

A relative newcomer to Copenhagen’s coffee scene, Cupenhague offers micro-roasted fairtrade coffee in their colorful and bright café on Ryesgade in Nørrebro. With a commitment to sustainable practices from farm to your cup, Cupenhague takes coffee seriously. Delicious house-baked pastries, like orange cardamom knots, are first come, first served and change daily and served on beautiful locally produced ceramics. It might be my top spot. Today. Anyway.

3 | Ipsen & Co

No Copenhagen coffee list would be complete for me without the inclusion of Ipsen & Co on Gammel Kongevej in Frederiksberg. It captured my heart on my very first visit to the city nearly five years ago. I take everyone I can here at least once. The café itself is small and cozy and serves their coffee in the cutest coordinated Danish Bloomingville cups. Try the brunch plate or the skyr with muesli (my favorite made wiith a nutty, crunchy oaty goodness plus a house-made seasonal compote of sea buckthorn or rhubarb. Yum.) Or take your coffee outside from the most adorable take-out window in town. Just bring your reusable cup!

4 | Kaffestuen

5 | Original Coffee

Original Coffee is my OG coffee house. Many a day did I sit inside their first shop near Trianglen and absorb my new Danish life. Darn good coffee and now a plethora of shops around town to choose from. I love taking visitors to the one at the top of Illum Department store and sit at the corner above pretty Amagertorv. No places here to take in the view outside? Head to the opposite corner of Illum and try the annex one there. More spots on the balcony, amazingly protected from the wind. Or sit outside with views of the Lakes on the Sorterdam Dossering near Dronning Louises Bro. Always action happening here. Hungry? Try Original Coffee‘s morgen komplet brunch plate, a relative bargain at 49 DKK.  I also love their avocado mad, a Danish version of avocado toast on dense chewy rye bread with pickled red onion and a yummy pesto. With more than one location, I’ve put *asterisks to indicate their coziest locations.

6 | Paludan Bog & Café

This is my nearly teen daughter’s new favorite and I can understand why. While the coffee might not be the best in town, the atmosphere wins in this university area favorite. Grab a table in one of the cozy nooks lined with vintage books. Popular with students from near and from far, you’ll hear a bevy of languages in this book café.

7 | Royal SMushi Cafe

Coffee and cake on Royal Copenhagen dishes? Yes please. And while Royal Smushi Cafe may not be a coffee house per se, I do believe it is the perfect combination of classy and quirky and I consider it quite cozy. Chandeliers and china comingle with cases of pretty cakes and amusing details. Can’t afford the dishes next door at the Royal Copenhagen flagship shop? No worries, take your coffee in a cup at the café and pretend you can.

8 | HOTEL SANDERS

Also not a coffee house per se, the newish Hotel Sanders is still one of the coziest places to take a coffee. Upscale hotel near the Gamle Scene of the Royal Theater, you don’t have to be a guest to soak up the ambiance inside. From the Parisian sidewalk café chairs outside to the plush couches near the fireplace in the lobby, there is something decadent and different about the vibe here. But for something truly special, step upstairs to the rooftop terrace and take your coffee or brunch up top. Pretty mosaic tables and warm wooden rattan chairs make it a little oasis in the city.

9 | Sonny

In the center of the city sits Sonny, a slick little coffee shop with style. Serving single origin and organic coffees from Aarhus roasters La Cabra and Swedish roasters Koppi, you will get a lovely cup here. Brunch is delicious and instagram worthy as well.

10 | The Coffee Collective

The Coffee Collective has become a local institution with shops all about town. But you can’t call the collective a chain just yet. No quality lost with expansion in locations. More about the brew, than the sweets or eats, Coffee Collective is just good coffee. And with positive impact, they are committed to enhancing the lives of coffee farmers they source from. I love taking a cup to stay outside to the tables at Torvehallerne market and people watching. My kind of hygge and happy when I don’t have company to share with. Even when I do. For a completely different look, try the newest location on Kristin Bernikows Gade near the shopping center Strøget and not far from Magasin.

  1. Though I’m not the biggest fan of coffee, I do enjoy a great coffee shop for my occasional latte, and Paludan looks right up my alley! My husband will definitely enjoy this list when we make it to Copenhagen one day! Pinned! #FarawayFiles

    1. oregongirlaroundtheworld

      You can get things other than coffee and you’ll appreciate the cozy factor of most of these!

  2. Amazing! I love cafes and coffee shops and there are so many beautiful ones here. Must be very hard to choose where to get your caffeine fix! Another reason I really must visit Copenhagen #Farawayfiles

  3. I love coffee and coffee shops. I do prefer the old style coffee houses, but these Coffee shops look so inviting. A top reason to visit Copenhagen. My personal favourite is the Paludan Bog Cafe. Thank you so much for sharing this. Have saved it for later. #farawayfiles

  4. These places are so pretty! They make me wish I liked coffee 😉

    Still, I love pastries, so I’ll definitely be checking some of these out during my upcoming visit. Are there many places to get a good cup of tea? (Damn, I’m so British lol!) #FarawayFiles

    1. oregongirlaroundtheworld

      Haha! Lots of tea places too / A.C. Perch’s is supposedly the oldest tea shop in Europe. Serves high tea too! Tante T (Aunt T) sells and serves tea from their kiosk in Torvehallerne Market too. And almost every where else also serves tea. You’ll be fine!

  5. You had me at ‘coffee’ but I do admit that the uniqueness of a coffee shop is a vital part of the experience. I like your collection of spots ranging from traditional to nouveau and minimalist but I think my favourite is Hotel Sanders.

  6. I’m completely obsessed by coffee and this looks like a great list of places. You’re so lucky to have so many good options in Copenhagen. I was very pleased to see a Flat White on a few of the menus in your photos. Love to come and try this all out some day.

  7. Oh, my — any of these would thrill me! Every one looks so appealing. I think my favorite would be Hotel Sanders for the atmosphere. If I get to visit Copenhagen, I will know I’ll find charming places to enjoy my coffee!

  8. bavariansojourn

    Some of those are new to me, but they all look so good! I used to take a lot of guests to Royal Smushi – so good! 😀 #farawayfiles

  9. I LOVE Coffee! Sometimes I think about how much I’d love a cup, but it’s 8pm and I know its not a good idea. I never felt this way until recently I discovered a new favorite: Groundworks, here in LA. I often stop there on my morning ride, and I love the familiarity with the people who work there, the beach vibe and the delicious coffee! I’d love to try any one of these lovely spots, they all look lovely. #farawayfiles
