The list of tasty places to dine in Copenhagen, Denmark is extensive. You can start your day with divine shakshuka at Café Atelier September, polish off a few of the mini Danish smørrebrød bybrids at Royal Smushi Cafe. If your stomach can handle it, your next stop would be to enter into a full on barbecue coma after eating dinner at Warpigs. Whenever we visit Copenhagen we end up feeling a bit like we wished we had packed another tummy.
In addition to tasty grub, we’re also big fans of bakeries where you can snag a voyeuristic peek at how the magic is made. (Voyageur du Temps in Los Altos, California has one of our favorite pastry viewing areas of all time.) Mirabelle bakery is one of the best places to gawk at delicious fresh breads in the city of spires. In fact, it requires quite a bit of restraint to not put your paws on the loaves of fresh bread and tasty looking pastries they leave out on the counters at Mirabelle.
At Mirabelle you can order everything from breakfast items like Mirabelle’s eggs Benedict (which consists of the traditional poached eggs piled atop fresh rye bread with spinach, toasted walnuts and hollandaise sauce) or even house made pasta beef ragout with celery, kale and parmesan cheese for dinner. Grab and go is also an option since Mirabelle typically has sweet pastries, almond croissants and other goodies available if you’re on the run although the croissants at Mirabelle might be called anything, but fast food. (The croissants at Mirabelle are made from scratch with a natural sourdough culture. It takes four days of tender care under the watchful eyes of the pastry chefs to deliver each delightful viennoiserie.)
It should come as no surprise that the list of Noma alumni working in Copenhagen is long and that Mirabelle is one of the legendary restaurant’s offspring. Christian Puglisi (a decorated chef who has worked not only at Noma, but also in El Bulli’s kitchen where his work load involved, “Sorting peas in numerous sizes- then blanching”) owns a fabulous restaurant that is just a stone’s throw away from Mirabelle called Relæ. Mirabelle actually grew out of Relæ and became it’s own stand alone independent bakery and cafe in 2014. (The Noma/Puglisi family tree has more branches than just Mirabelle and Relæ. There are also two religiously organic restaurants in the portfolio which are Manfreds and a sister establishment called Bæst.) If there’s only one Danish danish spot you hit up in Copenhagen, we highly recommend making it Mirabelle because of its dedication to organic products, seasonal options, commitment to local production and the quality of each item they serve.
