The 5 best bakeries
1) Meyers Bageri
Meyers Bageri is the small chain of organic, artisanal bread and pastry shops scattered throughout Copenhagen that originate with Claus Meyer, one of Denmark’s culinary superstars. But rather than succumbing to rapid over-commercialisation, the Meyers bakeries have stayed small, local, and committed to quality.
2) Bageriet Brød
Trendy Vesterbro’s hippest organic bakery is only a few years old but already feels like an essential part of the neighbourhood. Brød’s lovingly crafted rustic breads are highly recommended.
3) Sankt Peders Bageri
Sankt Peders Bageri is a relatively lowkey place with a traditional vibe. But what makes this bakery so special is their beloved Onsdag sneglen (Wednesday cinnamon rolls), of which they bake 4000 each week. Tip: arrive early and buy two.
4) Batting Bakery
The people at Batting Bakery love baking, eating, and sharing their outstanding baked goods – this becomes clear as soon as you enter the cheerful, stylish bakery in the little village of Ordrup. This awardwinning bakery is a worthwhile detour en route from the city centre to Bellevue Beach or Dyrehaven.
5) Juno the Bakery
Since opening in early 2018, Juno has been the most talked about bakery in Copenhagen. Founded by a Noma-trained chef, Juno is a friendly neighbourhood spot whose specialty is their gooey (and totally addictive) cardamom snurrer – a Swedish twist on the classic Nordic sweet cinnamon swirl.
