Good Coffee, good cake, but does get very busy! We went here with a friend who lives in Copenhagen and he recommended meeting here as it was centrally located. Very reasonable for Copenhagen

Everytime I come to Copenhagen I always come to this great place either for coffee or brunch. I have to say service is quite slow, there's always big line whenever you get there early in the morning or during the day. But the place is worth it! You have to order at the counter, and they bring the food to... More

I love Paludan, even though it's usually quite crowded. But it's a nice cafe and the prices of the food are really payable (due to the standards in Copenhagen...). The plates are huge and the food is nice. I love it :)

Found this place through TripAdvisor and glad we did. The interior is different to the norm and suits all ages. Food is good and reasonably priced, you find a table then order and pay at the bar as you go along. No pressure to free up the table and we spent comfortable lazy evenings here.

Though perhaps one of the busiest cafés in town, there always seems to be a seat available. This is probably because the menu is student-budget friendly, versatile, and its ‘hyggeligt’ atmosphere (the closest translation for that Danish word is ‘cozy’), making it the perfect place for catching up with a friend, discussing a work project, or even getting some things...

We came here for a nice dinner and weren't dissappointed. You have to order your own food and drinks at the bar which can be quite busy when the place is packed. They make the drinks straight away so you can take them with you and they will bring your food to your table when it's ready. The food was... More

This was a great meeting spot. We enjoyed two delicious meals while visiting my daughter who is spending a semester in Copenhagen. The atmosphere was cozy and laid back.

We were here for our first lunch. The food was good. We did not try the cakes but it looked yummy as well. If you can, after the cakes stall, go upstairs and turn to your right. Try to find a seat in this room. The service was also friendly, you have to order at the counter directly

Thank Clément I

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
