Where we ate in Copenhagen

Nyhavn, Copenhagen

When J and I headed back to Copenhagen this summer I was really excited about finding some new places to eat.

The first time we visited we made sure to try some of the city's best spots, including the trendy Kødbyens Fiskebar for amazing fish and chips, Aamanns smørrebrødsdeli for a real Scandinavian lunch and the tucked-away Dyrehaven bar and cafe to feel like a local.

Here are some of the places we enjoyed the most this year:

1. Meyer's Deli. We headed here for lunch only a few hours after we landed in Copenhagen, and I'm so glad we did. I couldn't have asked for a better first meal of the trip than toast skagen: prawns on rye.

The deli is well-known in Copenhagen, and it's equally as great for a long breakfast as picking up something quick for lunch. As well as the cafe/restaurant and deli counter, you can buy other foodie treats like wine and cookbooks.

2. Down the street from the deli is Meyer's Bageri. Both are part of the Meyer Group, founded by Claus Meyer who is also a co-owner of the famous Noma restaurant.

I'm sure I'd rather visit this bakery than Noma, because that kanelsnurre was my favourite cinnamon bun of the trip. Who knew Denmark would have better buns than Sweden?!

3) Recently I told you how much I love visiting the Torvehallerne. J and I selected this massive tray of Scandi delights from the market and ate it as a picnic lunch in the Tivoli Gardens.

While I can't totally remember what all of it exactly was, I do know that the spicy tuna at the very top of the tray was amazing.

4) Sitting right next to the Rundetårn (round tower) is DØP's organic hot dog stand. It's a great place to pick up lunch after a trip up the tower, or to sustain you for an afternoon of shopping.

For such a small stand, there's a good variety of sausages (I had goat), and even the option to have a side of mashed root veg.

5) Granola is, as the name suggests, a very trendy place that fills up for brunch very quickly. We visited on our last morning to see what all the fuss was about, and enjoyed a breakfast that kept us going until we reached Sweden.

Granola feels very Parisian, and is well-placed on Værnedamsvej, known as Copenhagen's Paris.
