Gimle is a great place for concerts - a small and Cosy place often with great artists on the programme - we watched Sort Sol playing Orange at RF17 in two months :-)

Gimle is a very nice little café next to the music venue Gimle. It is fine to start a musical evening at the Café. OK food and fine drinks.

We came here for a bit to eat and while the food is good, it was a bit pricey (even for Denmark). €26 for a plate of nachos, a chicken sandwich and two beers. I understood from the signage that the place is volunteer-only, which might explain the 3 or 4 staff standing behind the counter looking at their phones,... More

Great café with great food operated by volunteers from all over europe. Often live music and djs at the café in the evening. There is also a big concert venue at Gimle as well as a night club in the weekends.

We had no problems getting a seat and the waiter provided us with food/wine menus and various breads (the sweet onion was delicious). We were fairly tired after the flight so went for soft drinks instead of wine and dispensed with starters.The medium well steak was done butterfly but had severely burnt edges that had to be trimmed off at...

For great cozy coffee shop atmosphere this place is perfect. The menu in the cafe is limited to a few choices, but the ones I've had are all excellent. It is a relaxing place to chat, enjoy a simple meal or hear live music (check the schedule). Gimle is non-profit therefore they keep their prices low. Cheap cup of coffee... More
