Description: Conditori La Glace is the oldest and probably best confectionary in Denmark. Founded in the middle of old Copenhagen on the 8th of October 1870, it has through six generations delivered joy and quality to Copenhagen and its visitors. It is an experience to visit the beautiful old rooms located in Skoubogade 3. La Glace has a lot to offer, including good taste, traditions, history, as well as quick and qualified service. You can choose to enjoy the confections on location or bring the cakes home with you for coffee. Alternatively, we can deliver to your door. We hope that after seeing what we have to offer you will feel like visiting our confectionary, tasting our products, and making use of our many services. We are looking forward to welcoming you to La Glace.

“You need to speak Danish to get seated right away”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

This place is famous in Copenhagen so when I found it I was very excited. They offer some gluten free pastries so I couldn't wait however it was very busy. They asked us to wait to be seated and after waiting half an hour we simply walked away. Unfortunately it seemed that those who spoke Danish got seating priority and we were left waiting if though we were there before them.

“Definitely Worth the Wait In Line”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

This is one of the best bakeries i've been to and it has a very deep history in Copenhagen. You'll definitely have the wait in line to get in (especially if you're sitting down to eat) but it's worth it.

If you aren't sitting down to eat and you just want to take some baked goods to go, make sure to tell the host at the door. I waited for about 15 minutes when I could have got in a lot quicker as most people were waiting to sit down and eat.

“Decent pastries and cakes at a ridiculous price!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

We spent $50 US for 2 slices of cake and 1 hot chocolate and a 1 tea. I know the prices are ridiculous in Copenhagen but that is truly highway robbery! Yes they were good, but I've had plenty of good pastries and cakes at the states that were equally as good if not better. Also, the hot chocolate was almost watery.

And, we had pastries and cakes at Lagkaghuset (a Danish chain bakery) which were actually better! And they only cost a mere $20 US (yes the prices in Denmark are absurd!)

So, if you want to go to the oldest bakery in Copenhagen, be my guest. However I believe it's all hype and absolutely not worth the price.

By the way the servers were very surly and rude too!

“Expensive but worth the visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

It´s is a very traditional and peculiar place.
They have excellent cakes and pastries, charging a premium price
it´s usually very busy, with a line outside and very crowded inside, but definetely worth the visit.
