Let yourself be transported to another era. The cafe is like a time capsule, from the decor to the staff with the old-fashioned apron. But don't let the age of the place and the appearance of tradition fool you. This bakery has been innovating since Hans Christian Andersen was still alive. Many of the cakes were invented for special occasions and continue to sell until these days. People must love them. I love them. They are beautiful, with a nice touch of whimsical decoration like the Volmer cake with an imprint of the bakery's name on the marzipan sheet that envelopes the cake, or the festive Sports cake, decorated with caramelized choux pastries. We had those, and they both were delicate, light, creamy and not overly sweet. They all went well with a nice pot of coffee, which was free for refills. The only disappointment was the danish (wienerbrød). It was soggy and had a flat custard texture; we had better ones at emmerys and Lagkagehuset.
Go there alone or with your friends, and enjoy an extended coffee break. The service here was efficient and old-schooled. The clientele ranged from elderly friends hanging out to, to a couple picking their wedding cake, to young male athletes from the UK (based on their team jackets) letting themselves go with carbs and sugar. It was so refreshing to see tradition remaining relevant at a bakery that was not all about cupcakes and macaroons.
