Description: WELCOME TO CAFE CHAPLIN IN THE HEART OF HELSINGOR Cafe Chaplin is a family cafe located on Axeltorv in the heart of Elsinore, and within walking distance of Kronborg, Culture Yard and the rest of the center. It serves every day a unique tapas menu with a selection of different homemade dishes. In the summer we serve in the cafe's cozy patio and outdoor seating directly off the main square, where over a hot cup of coffee or a cold draft beer you can follow the city life and markets.

We drove out from central Copenhagen to Cafe Chaplin for brunch because of the good review on Tripadvisor. I thought it looked good, but the reviews do the brunch here no justice at all... it was amazing!!

I've lived in central Copenhagen for a couple of years and had a lot of brunches here, but this was definitely the best.... there was an amazing array of homemade delicacies - crusty salted bread with butter, smoked salmon and dill mousse, yoghurt with granola and blueberries, pancakes with maple syrup and homemade raspberry jam and a delish chocolate brownie with a cream cheese and strawberry topping... and then there was all the other things: crispy bacon, scrambled egg, sausages, hot smoked salmon flakes, melon, pineapple.... It was IMMENSE - well worth 155 kroner!... plus the service was excellent, the coffee was strong and it was delightful sitting outside in the sun to eat. We loved it and will definitely go back!!

Eating brunch at this place we do it a couple of times a year because the food, atmosphere is great and it's close by. This place do local social support for people with special needs given a chance to get a job. You will support this work by eating here.

If you have a crush on the Danish brunch culture then Chaplin might be just right for you. They are champions in the 'eat what you can' buffet. It has both the classics of eggs, bacon, pancakes, fruits, yoghurt, cheese, cut meat - you name it. AND then they have what might more be on the typical lunch menu as salads (both green and those with enough mayo :)), liver pâté, fish etc etc. An indulgence feast including tea, juice and coffee the very fair price.
The place itself is at the same time a social project to nudge social vulnerable into the job market. Despite this being worth supporting in itself this is not the reason for the popularity of the place. You come to eat not to do good. And you better reserve a table!
Notice that you get the table for a certain amount of time (1:45 h) due to the popularity. Many locals are regulars and love to come here to celebrate.
If you are into the hipster urban organic and all of that, this is not your place. This is down to earth for all kinds of people - the very meaning ad what Danes call 'folkeligt'.

So far the best food I had in Denmark. Fresh and well prepared. But that is not all. The personnel is amazing. Pia, the manager, explained the story of this amazing place. All the food is prepared by young people with disabilities as part of an integration program.
Do not miss!
