1. Ø12

4/5 – TripAdvisor
4.2/5 – Google

Ø12 is one of the Copenhagen brunches most popular with locals. The reason? It’s open 365 days a year. Best of all, there’s no need to book. It’s the perfect place for the most spontaneous of you to grab a quick breakfast.

Ø12 is located in the very heart of the Østerbro district. A pretty café that will satisfy all your tastes. The dishes on offer are fairly classic, but prepared with love and, above all, very good produce. 

The interior space is really comfortable. Worthy of what you’d expect from Nordic countries. Very hygge, then. In summer, when the sun is shining, you can also enjoy breakfast on the terrace.

2. Mad & Kaffe

Mad & Kaffee could claim to be Copenhagen’s best-known brunch. Actually, that may be true. Indeed, it’s one of the Danish capital’s most popular breakfast spots. 

But beware. This well-deserved success means you’ll have to be patient to enjoy the delights on offer. Located in Vesterbro, this café sees many people disembark, as early as 10am. Since reservations are not possible, try to arrive early.

But why is this brunch from Copenhagen so popular? It’s probably for its “brunch à la carte” concept. So, you’ll be invited to opt for several courses (3, 5 or 7), for a price that won’t change. There are plenty of options to choose from: 

    • Sausage cheese ;

    • Croque-monsieur ;

    • Chorizo ;

    • Avocado with chilli ;

    • Scrambled eggs with smoked salmon.

Sidecar is located in the Nørrebro district. The establishment is open all day and all evening. So you can have… a bit of everything. In fact, you can treat yourself to a delicious breakfast or dinner.

You can drink coffee, cocktails or good local beers. At Sidecar, brunches are a little out of the ordinary.

In fact, you’ll be able to enjoy dishes that are totally vegan, meat-based, sweet or savory. We recommend the croque-monsieur, the savory waffle or the good bread with cheese filling

Wulff & Konstali Food Shop is one of Copenhagen’s most popular brunch spots. Located on the Nørrebro side, this café offers breakfasts made with good seasonal produce.  

Pastries, meats, soups or even vegetable, cheese or other plates, you’ll be treated to the very best at Denmark (be warned, though, this means the menu changes quite frequently).

Naturally, some dishes remain on the menu quite frequently. These include chia porridge (with almonds and pineapple compote), quinoa and berry yoghurt and soft-boiled eggs. Last but not least, if you’re on the premises, don’t forget to try the squeezed orange juice (which is a must). One of our favorite Copenhagen brunches.

Hot Pot Republic is one of Copenhagen’s most disruptive brunches. The reason? It’s a Chinese-style brunch ! You’ll find a wide range of sweet dishes, like youtiao’s sesame dumplings, as well as savory dishes, like steamed dumplings. 

Please note. The food is excellent and the brunch is only open on Saturdays. Seats are therefore quite expensive… Remember to make reservations.

This is a small chain of two cafés. The first is in Ny Adelgade, while the second is in Rosengården in the Indre By district. A family project, born of a common desire shared by father and son. 

At Fars Deng, everything is prepared with passion. Organic ingredients are used in all cases. Moreover, the establishment emphasizes the sustainable aspect of its project. Breakfast, brunch or lunch, there’s something for everyone at this brunch in Copenhagen.

What’s on the menu? Jam, cheese, fennel sausage, homemade salsa sauce or bread, butter, avocado and other signature dishes, such as the famous toasted rye bread with avocado, tomato, Emmental cheese and a fried egg on top. We also recommend you try their croque-madame… which is well worth the detour.

BoPa is a café whose name directly echoes the period during which Denmark and Copenhagen were occupied by the Nazis. On-site, the café offers classic but very enjoyable brunches. 

The charm of this establishment lies above all in its surroundings. A beautiful square, children’s games and an inner courtyard worth discovering in summer. And if you’re there in fine weather, don’t forget to try their famous burger.

Enjoy Copenhagen's brunch culture

Brunch in Copenhagen offers a refined culinary experience that combines Nordic tradition with contemporary creativity. Whether sampling the delights of Smørrebrød, savoring delicate pastries or exploring locally flavored markets, the brunch scene in the Danish capital seduces with its diversity and quality. 

Each establishment has its own signature, reflecting the city’s cultural and gastronomic identity. As a result, a brunch in Copenhagen becomes much more than a simple meal, but a celebration of Danish cuisine, conviviality and the art of living.
