Over 35 Snaps

Cold beer and quality schnapps for your lunch in Copenhagen

Our "café" – as lunch restaurants were called over 100 years ago, has been serving beer and drinks to the Danish people since 1671.

We are very proud of this, as we believe that our work is part of a little national history. We strive to continue as we always have and keep the soul of the restaurant alive. This means that we also maintain the high quality of open sandwiches. We ensure that you will always be able to get delicious Danish lunch in Copenhagen in surroundings that complement the food. However, a good Danish lunch is not complete without a set.

We, therefore, serve the water of life and beer throughout lunch. Our range of schnapps is a wide one, ranging from the classic ones to those you've never heard of, as well as a range of our very own homemade schnapps. The draft beer comes from 5 taps and special beer, bottled here we also offer a good mix of flavor varieties.

Dansk frokost i København

A culinary journey in the heart of Copenhagen

Behind the scenes of our lovely lunch in Copenhagen are our skilled chefs who create the most delicious creations from scratch. This means that we marinate our herring ourselves, chop our tartare, and even our pickles are made entirely from scratch. We believe that our restaurant has the whole package and we are therefore always proud to showcase it for the first time to new guests or to serve it again to our regulars. With our many years in the industry, we have learned a lot about what makes our restaurant special – something we will never compromise on. We look forward to seeing you in our little time capsule for an unforgettable lunch.
