Just popped in whilst out for a Sunday walk round the lakes. Sat outside in the crisp afternoon sun with my wife, 2 beers & lovely view. Haven't eaten anything here as yet though can recommend for a cozy beer on a lazy day 🍻🇩🇰👏👏

If you like to watch people walking by, while looking at the lakes and birds, while enjoying a nice brunch buffet, with a good variety of hot dishes and salads, including fried and scrambled eggs, sausages, tomato salad and two kinds of salmon, with fresh orange juice and coffee/tea on the side, "Den Franske Cafè" is highly recommendable.

Well, you can enjoy the lovely spot in Copenhagen with a cup coffee or a beer, but stop there. First up, you'll have to "pay" for the location, and don't get the value in the cuisine... unfortunately, but the waiters try to do the best they can, so once again, it is a great pit-stop on the way to another...

I was there in the daytime. The staff was clearly annoyed by the fact that they had work to do. The room was cluttered with things things like empty beer boxes and litter that nobody seemed to care much about. The food was reasonable, but just that. This place isn't worth visiting.

As I was due to run the Copenhagen Marathon the next day, we were looking for somewhere to have a pasta dinner. We walked past this cafe which is right next to one of the city centre lakes and not far from a main road. As it was fair weather we decided to sit outside - the tables are under... More

Good location to have coffee overlooking the lake (and metro construction works at the moment). Staff is friendly although inexperienced it seems. Prices ok.

This place has tables set outside and if you want the warmth, sit inside. There are light meals, salads, sandwiches, etc and a selection of pastries served with a selection of hot and cold drinks. The hot chocolate comes served with lots of cream, and I had the elderflower cordial and chocolate cake which just warmed me up on this... More

We just stopped by one sunny afternoon for a glas of wine and some snacks, which it was great for. The staff was friendly and the view was nice. However, the place could use a small makeover to make it more modern. But I wouldn't mind to go back in the summer to sit outside and have a bit to... More

This cafe has poor service, a mean staff and it was just an all round poor experience. The food and beverage is average which is why I'm giving them one star - at least they tried. If you want a great cafe in Copenhagen go anywhere else.
