Café Gammeltorv is a Danish lunch restaurant in the heart of old Copenhagen, wonderfully situated in the historic basement under Gammel Torv 20. Our kitchen prepares everything from scratch and we are often fully booked, so make sure to order in advance, if you want to make sure that you will be seated
Gammeltorv is the oldest square in Copenhagen with beer bottling and serving since 1671. In 1902, Café Gammeltorv opened its doors for the happy people ofCopenhagen for the very first time. Almost 40 years later, Kelvin Lindemann wrote the novel “The house with with the green tree”, about a family who lived in the property. Back then there was a big tree by the restaurant’s entrance, the name has been hanging around ever since. The restaurant today is held with great respect for the original setting, and the menu still revolves around the best traditions of open faced sandwich or smørrebrød, accompanied by foamy draft beer and snaps.
Café Gammeltorv offers all the Danish lunch classics, which our chef composes from scratch all based on the best ingredients. Try, for example, our old-fashioned ripe curry herring with four kinds of capers, plaice fillet with homemade remoulade or the classic tartare, of course made from freshly chopped organic meat.
Café Gammeltorvs byder på alle de danske frokost klassikere, som vores kok komponerer helt fra bunden, af de bedste råvarer. Prøv fx vores gammeldags modnede karrysild med 4 slags kapers, rødspættefilet med hjemmelavet remoulade eller den klassiske tatar, der selvfølgelig er lavet af frisk hakket økologiske kød. Du kan sammensætte din egen fest som du vil, eller vælge vores sammensatte frokostanretning. Dine gæster vil elske det gode hjemmelavet der bliver serveret.
