The 5 cosiest cafes for a rainy day Copenhagen

Bastard cafe

Rådhusstræde 13
Copenhagen K
+45 4274 6642

A cafe for board games, card games, coffee and hygge, Bastard Café is a unique place to skipp a few hours of bad weather by getting cosy with a favourite non-digital game. Many games are free to play, some require a small fee to ‘rent,’ and non-gamers are always welcome to come and learn.

Ipsen & Co

Gammel Kongevej 108
+45 3214 5527

If you’re ever in Frederiksberg, whether in rain or sunshine, a visit to Ipsen & Co is always a good idea. Though primarily a coffee bar, Ipsen & Co is renowned for their brunch, baked goods, and their cosy, rustic interiors. Recommended: the house’s homemade mulled wine.


Larsbjørnsstræde 20
Copenhagen K
+45 9197 5719

This authentic French cafe and bistro is split into two levels, the dimly-lit cellar and the first floor with views overlooking the street. Both levels are perfect for taking a coffee break or escaping a rainy Danish day. Highly recommended is the house’s homemade ginger and mint tea.


Overgaden Oven
Vandet 90

Opened by a father-son team in 2014, Parterre has quickly become a favourite destination for Copenhagen cafe enthusiasts – and Instagrammers. With a menu of simple food and outstanding coffee from the Swedish roastery Koppi, the genuinely friendly vibe at Parterre invites guests to come in and stay a while.
