Was here today 020416 with a friend. Enjoyed coffee, cheesecake and a chicken burger (breast fillet not breaded). I am still stuffed now, some hours later.....Lovely. Be prepared to do a bit of self service though if it is busy.

Don't be put off from the outside - extensive menu and very homely. Lots of nooks crannies and of course - book's!

Came here for brunch and it did not disappoint. Probably about the healthiest thing we ate in Scandinavia. We both ordered the brunch, a latte, and a cappuccino. The seating is self serve and you order at the bar. It has a university/academic feel as it is located across from the university. You are seated among books which serves as... More

Walking into this restaurant was an experience in itself. It has the feel and relaxation of a library - with amazing displays that made me feel inclined to take photographs at every angle of the rooms! We had a wonderful table and received excellent service from Ida - who recommended some places for us to drink afterwards too. The food... More

Nice place in front of the Copenhagen University, nice location, good quality price (we spend more or less 30€ for two huge and tasty hamburger and two beers) and an amazing atmosphere. Eating hamburger and beer surrounded by book is magic. There are a lot of students discount and the staff is really nice and willing.

Cool seating areas amongst the shelves of books or lovely views of street and university from window seats. Three of us had a delicious and filling sandwich here. I had the smoked salmon sandwich with potato wedges. The salad was very fresh and bread was delicious. Prices not too bad either considering location.

We went here for dinner and ordered the Tagliatelle and a Sandwich with Goat Cheese which was both decent sizes and great taste. The Cafe/ restaurant is set like a library and got its own charm. Would definitely come back here!

Ordered a burger each but the portions were so large one burger would have been enough to share. The cafe is like dining in a noisy library. The staff weren't particularly friendly or helpful. The burgers were good.

The line was non-existent when we placed our coffee and treats order at the counter. By the time we were back at our table with our drinks, the line snaked slowly out near the entrance way. They need a more efficient system, or maybe I need to just relax. The drink were nice, reasonably priced and the muffin tasty. The... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
