The 5 best neighbourhood coffee bars in Copenhagen
1) La Esquina
La Esquina is located pretty far off the typical tourist path, but for the people living and working around Ryesgade, this place is an oasis for those in need of a proper cup of coffee, a healthy lunch, or a glass or two of Spanish wine.
2) Central Café
Located underneath the so-called ‘smallest hotel in the world’, the Central Café on Tullinsgade is a beloved neighbourhood haunt, rich in history and local pride. Tip: with only five seats inside the cafe, it’s best to sit outside, where there’s plenty of room to take in the ambiance of the charming street.
3) The Coffee Collective
By now you’ve likely heard of The Coffee Collective, who opened Copenhagen’s first open coffee roastery in 2008. And while any one of the brand’s awardwinning, sustainably-focused locations will serve you a perfect coffee, the original on Jægersborggade still has that lovely neighbourhood vibe.
4) Props Coffee Shop
When it comes to finding an authentic neighbourhood coffee bar, look no further than Props Coffee Shop. Located on the walking street of Blågårdsgade and tucked in between galleries, secondhand shops, and dive bars, this place is always full of local characters and lively conversation.
5) At The Counter
This cosy, minimalist cafe is the ‘little sister’ of the award-winning Juno the Bakery (located just around the corner). Founded by a former Noma chef, At The Counter serves up a lovingly curated coffee menu and seasonal foods – all with a passion for excellence.
