Travel: A Food and Drink Guide to Copenhagen

Restaurant Cofoco

In the two times that I've been to Copenhagen, one of the standout elements of both trips has been the food. Every place that I've eaten in has been incredible, with an attention to detail and fresh, quality ingredients that can sometimes be hard to come by. It's also possible to eat really well in the city and not spend a ridiculous amount - yes, Copenhagen can be expensive, but if you do a bit of research before you go and steer clear of the touristy restaurants you won't end up spending more than you would for a weekend in London.


I've eaten here twice now and both times the food has been amazing. The menu is seasonal, so it changes regularly, with a selection of starter sized portions (two dishes each is probably enough). The wine selection is equally as good and the prices aren't excessive - we paid about £55 for two including drinks. Plus, the interior is Scandi minimalist heaven.

Address: Abel Cathrines Gade 7, 1654 København V. Visit the website here.

Copenhagen Street Food

On Paper Island right on the harbour is Copenhagen Street Food, an indoor street food market full of stalls selling everything from Korean to Indian, French, Danish and Italian. You can eat really well here on a budget (prices range from about £5-8 for a main) plus it has a great atmosphere. Get there early on in the evening to enjoy a drink out on the deckchairs (blankets are provided) before heading inside and making that difficult decision about what to eat.

Address: Warehouse 7 & 8, The Paper Island, Trangravsvej 14, 1436 Copenhagen K. Visit the website here.


In Copenhagen's Meatpacking District is Mother, a great little place that does incredible sourdough pizzas. It's simple, delicious and is one of few places that I came across that served Prosecco (a big deal in my books!) This place is popular so turn up early or be prepared to wait for a table - we went at 8pm on a Thursday evening and had about a 20 minute wait, but there's a bar to sit at so it's all good. Prices are approx. £10-14 for a pizza.

Address: Høkerboderne 9-15, 1712 Copenhagen V. Visit the website here.


Up the road from Mother is Malbeck, a small winebar that specialises in Argentinian wine. The wine selection is second to none, and it's a really cosy place to sit and sample a few of them - there are a few beers on offer too if you're not really a wine buff.

Address: Istedgade 61, 1650 Copenhagen V. Visit the website here.

Vinbaren Vesterbro Torv

A gorgeous little bar in a square in Vesterbro that serves great wine (the Pouilly-Fumé in particular) and a small selection of tapas dishes. If it's warm enough, sit outside under the heaters and a blanket and watch Copenhagen go by.

Address: Svendsgade 1, 1659 Copenhagen.


If beer is more your thing, head to Mikkeller, a small bar that serves beer from its own brewery and selected micro breweries around the world. In the past, it's been voted the best bar in Copenhagen and it's easy to see why - the selection of beers is immense and even if like me you're not exactly a beer enthusiast, you'll find something you'll like. Plus, true to form, the interior is gorgeous and is about as far removed from a regular pub as you can imagine. It's up the road from Cofoco, so head there for a drink before or after going for a meal.

Address: Viktoriagrade 8 B-C, 1655 Copenhagen. Visit the website here.

Copenhagen is also full of incredible cafes and coffee shops, but they warrant a post in themselves - stay tuned!

Outfit: Oversized Grey Jacket

Sunglasses: ASOS
Jacket: Monki (similar)
Trousers: Zara (similar)
Flats: Zara (similar)

One of my favourite things about Copenhagen is the unbelievable shops - COS, Monki, Weekday, Acne - it's a minimalist's dream. I picked this jacket up in the Monki sale when we were out there (tactfully only putting a couple of things in my suitcase so I HAD to buy a few bits on my trip), and I just love the oversized fit. I made the jacket the statement piece by pairing it with some simple loose-fitting faux leather trousers, making it the perfect outfit for wandering around the city in.

Lust of the Week: Missguided Knitted Culotte Jumpsuit

I've been really impressed with Missguided recently - its Autumn/Winter collection already has some incredible pieces; think classic camel coats, chunky knitwear and everyday bomber jackets. This rib knit culotte jumpsuit is one of the standout pieces on Missguided for me at the moment - such an easy piece to wear, it can be worn over a polo neck and boots when the weather gets colder. Plus, at only £25, you can hardly say no.

Outfit: Cropped Jeans and Bell Sleeve Blouse

Sunglasses: ASOS
Top: Weekday (similar)
Jeans: Weekday
Bag: Zara
Flats: Topshop 

I've just got back from a few days in Copenhagen and although I didn't think it was possible, I've fallen even more in love with the city. I've got a few travel posts in the pipeline (the food is so bloody good there'll be at least one post about that alone) but for now, this is an outfit I wore on one of our days there.

The Danes are ridiculously stylish but laid back - nothing is over the top; it's all about gorgeous, understated pieces - and big scarves and Nikes are part of the uniform. If you go for a visit, don't bother taking a change of clothes for the evening either - jeans and a well-cut tee are dressy enough here. With that in mind, I kept things pretty casual when I was there. I've hardly taken these Weekday jeans off since I bought them and they made the perfect trouser option during my trip - here, I paired them with this slightly bell-sleeve blouse (also from Weekday) that I bought out there, finishing off with pointed flats, a simple cross body, and cat eye sunnies.

Taking a Break

Farrah - Brown Sugar Bikini c/o Triangl

I don't feel like I've really stopped for the past few months, what with work, keeping up with my blog, general life and a more-than-hectic fashion week. With that in mind, I booked this week off work for a well-deserved break, starting with a trip to the spa at Bodysgallen Hall in north Wales - a gorgeous little place in the middle of nowhere that does incredible treatments and makes you come out feeling like a new woman.

I took this opportunity to wear my new 'Farrah' bikini from Triangl (for reference, I opted for XS in the top and S in the bottom) and seeing as the weather was uncharacteristically warm and sunny, took advantage of the outside space before my massage and facial.

Of course, a week off wouldn't be a week off if a little holiday wasn't involved. After falling in love with Copenhagen when I went for fashion week last month, I was straight on the internet to look for flights to return. My man and I are there now for a few days of eating, drinking, shopping and sightseeing - the perfect break. I'm forever thinking about planning my next trip and get itchy feet after staying in the UK a little too long - in fact, Jet2holidays recently got in touch with me to ask how I got over post-holiday blues, and honestly, booking another trip always does the trick. Not the cheapest way and not the most practical, but certainly the most effective!
