If there was only one thing we could do non-stop in Copenhagen, Denmark it would be eat. We have loads of favorite grub spots in København: Bodega‘s bodacious breakfast BLT will knock your socks off, Hija de Sanchez serves up the best tacos in one of Copenhagen’s must see foodie sites Torvehallerne Market, Royal Smushi Cafe for a smørrebrød or two and of course Warpigs for delectable barbecue. If you wander outside of central Copenhagen you’ll find lovely leafy residential Frederiksberg. Our favorite parts of Frederiksberg weren’t its main tourist attractions (which would be the Copenhagen Zoo and Frederiksberg Palace), but a funky offbeat little street called Værnedamsvej. Værnedamsvej has a distinctly Frenchy vibe to it and it’s full of adorable stores to explore like Priip‘s stunning ceramic jewelry on nearby Tullinsgade and delightful Dora (on the corner of Værnedamsvej and Tullinsgade) which features a fantastic array of home goods and antique finds.

Either before you begin your wander or at the end of your stroll after you’ve worked up an appetite, head to Granola.

Granola is a throw back to classic ’50s style diners and everything about the restaurant has a wonderfully nostalgic feel to it.

The restaurant is rather small, so if you go during busy meal times, it may be tough to get a seat. Helpful Hint: Book your reservation in advance on Granola’s website.

Whether you’re in the mood for a croque monsieur with ham, cheese, tomato and a side salad for breakfast or a plate of steak frites for lunch, Granola is the place to go if you’re feeling Frenchy in Copenhagen.

If you’re looking for a super cozy atmospheric spot that really makes you feel like you’re in Europe, perhaps you should try stepping inside Granola and curl up with a delicious cassoulet with duck confit for dinner.
