Hønen & Ægget
The name means “the chicken and the egg” and that pretty much sums up the menu and the decor. Great concept! The tiles are kept in soft whites and yellows and everywhere are little chicken-related tidbits. Here you’ll find the eggs scrambled, fried, benedicted, and often served with a London-type semi-charred toast. They also serve dinner, but we love them for their breakfast and lunch.

Only a five minute walk from the Queen’s palace Amalienborg this cosy café is a great stop for us ordinary people. It offers spacious rooms and seats at the window where you can get your people-watching on. We recommend a warm breakfast roll and cappuccino breakfast. After that you can indulge in some of the deliciously rustic pastry calling your name from the counter.

The Union Kitchen
The Union Kitchen is on our list because it is super cozy and because they serve great breakfast. We had the eggs benedict, which had been recommended – very classic but they were extremely well-made.
The Union Kitchen is not the cheapest breakfast you’ll find in Copenhagen, but the combination of the atmosphere, decor, food, and service makes it well worth it. Also they open at 7.30 which is perfect for breakfast (meetings).
The coffee is also very good and creative (you will see why if you visit ;-))
