Copenhagen Ready! Shop. Dine. Coffee.

To my dearest:

A visit to Copenhagen is not complete without visiting an abundance of stores for interior goods! I just love a good home decor piece or something just functional home goods with great designs. If you’re looking to revamp your house, room, living area or space. A visit to Copenhagen will definitely be an eye opener. Heck! I’m already planning on making another trip there when I next do a full revamp or move somewhere new! So today, I’ll be sharing with you all my favorite stores to visit in Copenhagen when wanting to shop for these items. And food, can’t forget about food! I’ll also be sharing my favorite places to dine and/or grab coffee as well!

For Shopping!

frama cphFrama is a wonderful store for ceramics. They have gorgeous plates that just makes cooking and plating a whole lot of fun. So if you’re into that stuff, it’s a definite must visit. Their collection of home fragrance is also very pleasant, but of course that is something you have to try out for yourself in person!

hay house CPH

Hay House is a fun stop. If you’re into all types of different designs and want to shop around for something fun. Hay House is perfect. They also have a ton of designed interior space laying around to inspire you! Think, IKEA, but more fun. I think that’s the way to put it.

illums cphIllums is a jam packed stop. It’s similar to Hay House in that it has all different types of stuff. You can also pick up the seemingly, Copenhagen famous wooden monkey here. I feel like it’s probably a staple of Copenhagen. I spot it everywhere I go! But it’s not something you can buy just anywhere. And it comes with a hefty price tag. About $90 for their classic size and if you want to accessorize it with a hat, which I think is the way to go~ the hat costs $16. Oh jinkies! But they have a ton of fun pieces like the wooden monkey for home.

stilleben copenhagenStilleben is similar to Ilums but smaller. Tons of fun pieces to shop for! The decor design is also super cute! Plus it’s a small store, so it’s worth stopping by for a quick browse!

royal copenhagen

Royal Copenhagen is a must stop. I mean, you are in Copenhagen after all.  If you don’t know, they’re a brand that make china. And I absolutely adore their tea sets. I have a set for high tea at my house and love it to bits. If you get their designed china, know that each piece is hand painted. And guess what… Here, you get to see an artist hand paint them! How cool is that?

For Dining

admiralgade 26 cphAdmiralgade 26 was probably one of my favorite restaurants here. Tons of choices to choose from! The food was fresh, servers were nice, space was quaint, presentation of food was beautiful… the list goes on! Oh! And the food is served on beautiful ceramic tableware. So it’s like a “taste of Copenhagen” at it’s best!

niels nobis copenhagenNiels is situated inside the beautiful Nobis Hotel of Copenhagen. Likewise, everything here was gorgeous and great. I rushed here post-flight to make it in time to dine here. I have to say, I was not disappointed. Food and space here is so relaxing. It also helps that their restrooms are equipped with Byredo products. Not sold on that? Well… it’s really an experience you have to experience yourself.

musling bistro cphMusling Bistro is the perfect spot for fresh seafood by the waters of Copenhagen. They even have Happy Hour for fresh oysters every day from 3pm to 6pm. Their oysters are from France and Denmark!

almanak copenhagenAlmanak is the place to be for traditional Danish Open Faced Sandwiches and beautiful views by the canals of Copenhagen. It is located inside the Standard Hotel, so the interior is clean, sleek and modern! Perfectly refreshing brunch spot!

baest copenhagenBæst for fresh farm to table dining. Even their cheese is made fresh in house daily!

atelier september cphAtelier September for Danish/Japanese fusion type brunch and the most gorgeous natural lights and space.

For Coffee

coffee collective cphCoffee Collective is a moody and wonderful spot to grab coffee. The space is dim and relaxing with books all around for grabs. Staff friendliness also can not be beat. Lattes are served in tall glass cups. Drink away!

andersen maillard coffee cphAndersen & Maillard is a terrific coffee roaster! Everything on the menu will surely capture your heart. Again, something to check out for yourself!

democratic coffee cph

Democratic Coffee is probably the coffee shop of dreams. I can’t describe it. Just stepping in, the aroma is incredible. It’s like you’re swept away into coffee land, but not just any coffee land, a smooth creamy milky one. I can’t stop thinking about this place. Unfortunately, I was super sick during my visit to this coffee shop, so I didn’t get to take a sip of the coffee or take any photos. However, my travel buddy said it was one of the best cups she had, so she can vouch for this! But yes, I, myself, was captivated by it’s aroma!


Well, that’s all for my Copenhagen sharing! I hope you all enjoyed it and it inspires you to try some of these places when you’re in Copenhagen! If you want to see more of my traveling moments in Copenhagen, check out my instagram stories highlight in my profile dedicated to this trip! You’ll find it under “CPH”! And that’s a wrap for Copenhagen! Next post, will be a little treat for you all and we are moving onto Paris! I can’t wait to share with you all!

    Oh wow, everything looks so beautiful and I love the interior. I need to travel more since there’s so much beauty out there.

    Im a coffee addict so im gonna comment about coffee, of course. Lol. So sad you weren’t able to take a sip there! I was so curious about the shop and i was expecting you’ll have a photo of it. Oh well… at least you still have a reason to come back there…

      Have you heard about democratic coffee as well? Yeah my stomach was having problems. I couldn’t eat anything on my last day in Copenhagen. So sad. But definitely reason to revisit!

    The Royal Copenhagen and their china look so fancy. Although I don’t like the idea of packing some fragile goods on a long-haul flight, I think it’s great for a souvenir for my mom. Though it might be quite expensive, is it? 🙂

    • May 24, 2018 / 1:45 PM

      Yes. It’s a bit expensive! Prices aren’t too different from the states, like buying from Bloomingdales. So I would save the trouble. However, it’s worth the experience to go in and watch them hand paint it!
