Sidecar is one of our favorite places for weekend brunches.

On the menu are also a wide range of a la carte options, ranging from American pancakes, waffles, granolas to veggie breakfast plate and more.
Apart from coffee, the popular restaurant also serves some great fresh juices, smoothies and cocktails.
This café on Stefensgade is definitely one of our favorite office-away-from-the-offices in Copenhagen. The small coffee shop has a real neighhourhood vibe – meaning, the owner and baristas would recognize you if you visit often enough. Customers seems to be regulars and know one another. Digital nomads frequently occupy the “work desks” tucked in the back of the café, while family and friends enjoy the homey communal table by the entrance, chitchatting with the café staff, or relaxing alfresco.
The space also houses art works and designer lighting pieces, offering ‘food for thoughts’ while you are having a writer’s block.
A new café has arrived at one of Copenhagen’s most happening streets, Jægersborggade. Gonzo feels spacious and cozy. With large windows, plenty of plants and space, the café is an airy den. It is almost as if it was designed like a household living room so kids and kidults could run around freely as adults and grown-up (alike) could have some conversations.
On the menu are plenty of organic and natural options, such as craft beer by Herslev Bryghus, some natural wines, organic filtered coffee and herbal tea, as well as a host of cakes. Organic breakfast plates are served daily while brunch dishes are available on weekends.
What makes it more special is its weekly community dinner on Monday at 100kr/adult, 75kr/child from 3-7, and complimentary for the little ones under 3. Naturally, the grower friendly place serves plenty of vegetarian bites for those who do not eat meat, or are a support of the green Monday movement. Whether you are simply visiting the capital city of Denmark, new in town or have lived here for your whole life, Gonzo offers an authentic communal /social dining experience (Fællesspisning) that has been recently trending in Copenhagen.
Address: Jægersborggade 32 Copenhagen, Denmark 2200 N, Denmark
Located on a vibrant corner on Griffenfeldsgade, Cafe Auto is your familiar neighborhood hangout. From a bright daytime breakfast / brunch hotspot to sultry night-time den, this cafe and bar is frequented by locals catching up with friends or having a few drinks before a big night out.
Tucked away in a quieter side street from Nyhavn, The Union Kitchen is a very popular all-day-breakfast restaurant in downtown Copenhagen among tourists, expats and some Danes who brunch.
We would say their menu is American-inspired with a Nordic twist. For instance, you will find the classic Anglo-morning favorites such as Egg Benedicts and Florentine, and soul food such as Chicken Waffles; cooked in a less heavy style compared to their US counterparts, but with a dash of healthy greens or some pomegranate bites as garnish.
The large space is often busy and crowded, making you feel guilty if you are sitting there too long. Food is good enough but the portion is a bit small. Its prime location also makes the price slightly higher. Nonetheless, we think they are charging fair – after all it is right next to the most visited tourist spot in Denmark. But don’t expect a long leisurely meal with you friends. Nonetheless, we still recommend The Union Kitchen when you absolutely want to try some traditional fares from Southeastern United States.
Hyggestund is Mikkeller’s latest venture with a twist. Located next to the original Mikkeller Bar and its sophisticated open sandwich specialist Øl & Brød in the vibrant street in Veserbro, Hyggestund is a cozy place serving American-dining style all-day-breakfast.
Expect comfort foods for your guilty pleasure – eggs, bacon, sausages, burgers, pancakes, donuts, bagels and more. Did we mention that the man handling all the sweet sensations is Milton Addison Abel, who has honed through his culinary career in Michelin-starred establishments including Denmark’s pride, Noma, and The French Laundry in the United States.
Of course, the menu wouldn’t be completed without a long list of craft beers – it is a Mikkeller restaurant after all.
