Last day in Copenhagen

The weather was beautiful.  Emily had classes in the morning so I took a leisurely stroll over to Torvehallerne.  Two glass marketplaces next to each other with coffee shops, bakeries, delis, small cafes, etc.  I had the same problem this time as last time which is I wasn't sure what to get. 

The Coffee Collective takes their coffee very seriously and so that was the right thing to do.  I wasn't sure where to get a pastry.  I forgot Emily's advice which is to go to Roses and get a cinnamon bun.  Next time.

Summerbird treat
I walked through a little bit and on the way out bought one of the Solvaegs they are known for.  It has the taste of a mallowmar but the bottom is meringue. 

There are not only butchers inside. 

There are butchers outside too.

I walked through the park on the way back.  It was so beautiful. 

Once I got out to the street I stopped into a small shop owned by an elderly couple.  They were so nice.  Had me try some danish cheese.  The place was impeccably clean and organized.  I got a few items for the road. 

I ended up walking over to Bregade where the streets are lined with furniture and lighting shops.  Then I met up with Emily and we took a bus over to the Frederiksberg area.  A cute area with lots of small shops and a few French restaurants and stores.  We had lunch at Granola and started off with an iced coffee.

The food is really good here.  We had breakfast there last time we were in Copenhagen.  This was a mozzarella, tomato avocado sandwich on their classic brown bread. 

Em had the tuna nicoise.  I loved how they made the egg just a little soft.

We walked into a bunch of shops.  Thought this was a great poster. 

Picked up some black licorice which is everywhere. 

Em pointed out these wraps that they make where instead of using bread they use a thin layer of egg.  Might have to try that at home.

Meyers Delicatessan has an abundance of their own products including breads and food.

A store.

We hopped on the subway back to our neighborhood.  All the subway stops look the same.  My guess is that they build them all at the same time.

On the way to get a snack I saw this in a window.  Made me laugh.

We picked up an amazing blueberry muffin.  It was almost like cake at St. Peders which is the oldest bakery in all of Copenhagen.

Continued into a few more shops and back to the hotel for a little rest before dinner.

    Alright, that iced coffee from Granola is just too tempting. I’m booking a flight right now!

    As a Danish student living in Copenhagen it’s very interesting to see the places you go and read about your perception of Copenhagen/Denmark . I’d say you’re very classy in your choices and have certainly picked some of the better places (I read your posts from your previous visit). Granola is also a favorite of mine.What did you think about the state of the city in regard to all the construction sites? Currently they’re building a new part of the Metro which will continue for the next five years, which is one of the reasons for the large amount of construction happening around the city.Tourism is declining in Denmark and construction is one of the primary reasons discussed in the media – along with the low customer service, which is experienced in many shops and restaurants around the city.I’ve always thought it to quite funny that many of the shop employees in Copenhagen are Swedes commuting from Sweden every day. The reason is that they’re generally regarded to have higher standard of service, which I also find to be true. Did you take note on anything in that regard?I love Copenhagen and feel lucky everyday to be able to live here. It’s a very student friendly city and there’s always things to visit and see.I’d suggest you to visit Kiin Kiin, the only thai Michelin restaurant outside of Thailand. I had an incredible night with my family there.Also a drink at Bella Sky Bar is quite facinating and while you’re in that part of Copenhagen you should visit Orestaden, more specifically I’d suggest you to see 8 House, an award winning housing complex which you can walk around.I hope Emily enjoys her stay and have a nice week 🙂

      What a coincidence .. while I was typing you posted about your visit to Kiin Kiin 🙂

      1. Gotham Gal

        yep. quite the experience.

      The construction is everywhere which I figure will only make the city better when it is all complete. Went to Kiin Kiin the next night. Great place.

    Love the egg wrap idea. Do you know whether it’s more like a crepe vs a thin omelette?

    1. Gotham Gal

      it is more like a crepe.
