Best traditional Danish lunch in Denmark

Christina is in town, and I want to treat her to good, traditional Danish lunch on Tuesday. Ida Davidsen is closed, so what are the runners-up?



Told & Snaps? What else?

How about Kanal Cafeen: http://www.aok.dk/infosites/4921/1.html They really got some delicious things!

The "pharmacy" across from von Haller's place?

Not because it has my name, but Hviids Vinstue on Kongens Nytorv should give you a traditional danish experience.

If you want to take her to Grundtvig's birthplace - Udby Church - and tell her about the "højskole" Udby Tavern http://www.udby-kro.dk/ is just across the road and they serve the best traditional lunch in Denmark. I take it you mean Denmark and not just Copenhagen?! Udby is a 45 minute drive from Copenhagen in direction of Rødby. Rix and I got married there. Give Kate at the Tavern a warm embrace from me.

Nah, I'd go to "Kofoeds" near St. Kongensgade. Traditional Danish lunch, only with a "Bornholmian" twist - nifty! :-)

Når det skal være traditional Danish lunch vil jeg klart anbefale Kanal Cafeen http://www.aok.dk/profile/4921

Gitte Kik is the winner in traditional Danish smørrebrød, much better that Ida D - http://www.aok.dk/profile/14

Or try out "Den Danske Kro" - on Nørre Farimagsgade, opposite H.C. Oerstedsparken. The old Danish seaman's icon Preben Moeller Hansen is in charge ;) He lives upstairs and runs the moonshine café in the back yard (open in the summertime only).

Ha, I came to give my vote to Kanal Cafeen (the only place I've had smörrebröd in Copenhagen (your place is in Fredriksberg)), and it's already mentioned twice... at least they have the biggest pepper mills I've seen.

How about Café & Ølhalle 1892 at Arbejdermuseet in Rømersgade. It's been restored to its original "look and feel". The menu is supposed to be very traditional as well - maybe even more than our generation can stomach. See more at http://www.arbejdermuseet.dk/Cafe/cafe_oelhalle/default.asp?menu=4

We went to "Amalie":http://www.aok.dk/profile/3315 and "Københavner Cafeen":http://www.aok.dk/profile/380. Amalie was by far the best, but we went with regulars, and they crossed it off the list and said it was back to "Told & Snaps":http://www.toldogsnaps.dk/ from now on. Why? There are new owners, and the food had deteriorated, but the worst offense was the laminated menus. Are we really that dirty? Service was lacking, too, they just couldn't figure out to coordinate delivery of the courses. Christina recommends the deep fried Camembert. Københavner Cafeen is fun, but my lunch platter was pretty boring. The pork was dry and the filet of sole too deep fried. Christina had the Parisian Toast and made approving noises. Next time I'm looking forward to trying Told & Snaps. After that, it'll be Gitte Kik and Ida Davidsen.
