One of Copenhagen’s best classic smørrebrød restaurants, fine selection of homemade schnapps and, not least, fantastic service from the staff – attentive, humorous and full of personality. 

– Morten Mørup Jepsen


Super good breakfast place. The food was absolutely perfect and top quality. I dropped my fish fillet on the floor, but the good waiter immediately brought a new one. It was service at a high level! See you again soon! 

– Simon Falk


Super lunch cafe with classic smørrebrød and with a positive twist of something new. So delicious, sweet service and always nicely covered. Toilets are nice. The restaurant is highly recommended.
