Potato soup at Gourmet Street Food n' Soup

Potato soup at Gourmet Street Food n’ Soup


One of our favorite venues for traditional Danish food is Peder Oxe at Gråbrødretorv 11, which opened in 1975 but looks much older. While it is known for its steaks, it serves an excellent Dover Sole as well.  Call ahead for a reservation, as it can be busy during peak periods.

Another fine choice is Gourmet Street Food n’ Soup at Grønnegade 36. While the brunch here is an excellent deal, we go there for the potato soup, which is hearty and delicious.

There are several Joe and the Juice shops in the city, including one in the Magasin du Nord’s flagship location on Kongens Nytorv and one at the airport. Try the iced coffee shake regardless of the temperature outside.

For more serious coffee, try Original Coffee on the Bredgade (several other locations may be found in the city as well). Fresh-baked cookies are worth the caloric penalty and patrons can sit outside and watch the world go by for hours.

Finally, Café Klimt on the Frederiksborggade offers hearty fare including an out-of-this-world artichoke soup and delicious tagliatelle. Present a student ID card for a 10% discount.


One of our favorite hotels in Copenhagen is the trendy Skt. Petri, housed in the former Daells Varehus department store building. The stark white lobby comes alive with numerous parties and events and the hotel’s terrace is a great place to enjoy outdoor breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
