Stockholm may be known as the capital of Scandinavia but I have a serious crush on our southern neighbor. Copenhagen is a wonderful city with fashion and culture in spades. The people are friendly, the food is amazing and everyone has a sense of style. From fashion designers like Ganni to Henrik Vibskov, Copenhagen is a seriously fashionable place. But best of all, there is a laid back ease that feels amazing. Here is my guide to one of the Nordic?s best destinations.
Get ready for serious food heaven. This elegant hotel restaurant is decked out with hanging plants which gives a major greenhouse vibe. I suggest ordering the tasting menu, and vegetarian options are also available. Just be sure to alert you waiter to any allergies as they come out with a few surprises throughout the meal. The food is just as gorgeous as the décor so prepare ahead of time and charge your phone. While this could easily become an overpriced stuffy joint, the ambiance is cool, calm and collected.
The Union Kitchen
Eat brunch here and order everything. From lemony ricotta eggs to lush salads– their brunch game is strong. And if you have a sweet tooth don?t miss their gorgeous waffles.
This laid back café has a hint of Japanese inspiration. Ideal for brunch or a coffee break, it has the low key cool of a trendy New York coffee shop. Don?t miss their avocado toast and matcha on ice.
I could drink matcha lattes all day long. But sadly for me the craze hasn?t hit Stockholm. This yummy matcha bar, located between touristy Tivoli and Copenhagen?s trendy Meatpacking district, features matcha infused fare for all. From green tea ice cream, drinks and salads, this is the place to satisfy your matcha fix.
Whether you sit in the restaurant, out in the beautiful garden, or on the street- grab any table you can. The food at Geist is fantastic and the plating is minimal. The exquisite menu of small dishes is designed to be ordered tapas...
