Ipsen & Co.
Gammel Kongevej 108, Frederiksberg
Located on a highly foot trafficked street in Fredericksburg, Ipsen & Co is a trendy café that doesn't come across as trying too hard. There are ample single and communal wooden tables and floor cushions. Aside from the consistently good coffee you find almost everywhere in Copenhagen, Ipsen & Co serves up vegetable-filled rye bread sandwiches and hearty soups that will keep you full until dinner.
Vesterbrogade 182, Frederiksberg
Formel B specializes in contemporary classic Danish cuisine and has managed to remain on the top-tier of Copenhagen's fine-dining scene for over a decade.
Værnedamsvej 5, Frederiksberg
Granola serves up the indulgent, sugar-and-caffeine-heavy breakfasts loved by the Danes. The interior is pure '50s nostalgia replete with vintage coffee makers, an old grocery counter, and a soundtrack to match. While they also offer comforting, fish-heavy, lunch and dinner options, the breakfast is your best bet, especially if you're looking for a break from Danish pastries—try their oatmeal with hazelnuts, coconut, and the obligatory cinnamon sugar.
Julius Thomsens Gade 12, Frederiksberg
Another stellar restaurant offering from Claus Meyer, in partnership with Jesper Kirketrop (formerly of Noma and Geranium), Radio celebrates back-to-basics Nordic cooking. The daily baked breads served at the restaurant are made using heritage grains specially selected from the Nordic Gene Bank (a truly admirable seed saving initiative). Guests can opt for a three- or five-course menu of organic, sustainably sourced food, much of it grown on a farm less than two miles from the city. The wood-clad walls contribute to the restaurant's earthy interior—the perfect rustic setting to enjoy the unpretentious but unapologetically Nordic dishes.
