Healthy eats and coffee shop heaven in Copenhagen, Denmark
I absolutely loved Copenhagen, such a trendy little city which did not disappoint at all. The people were super friendly, the coffee was strong, the food delicious and the streets were filled with lots of little boutiques! Mr T and I went over the bank holiday weekend in May which we booked in advanced and managed to get a really great deal with Easyjet which was a big win, as the weekend itself was going to be a fairly expensive one. Copenhagen isn’t a cheap city and you can end up forking out a lot of money so just be wary of that before you go! We stayed right next to Nyhavan which I thought was the perfect location to explore the city. It really was the perfect city break!
I will be writing another Copenhagen blog called ‘A weekend in Copenhagen’ where I will be covering all the markets, site-seeing we did and other delicious restaurants we went to however for now check out my top healthy eats in Copenhagen outlined below.
42 degrees Raw – I have been very curious about 42 degrees raw for some time as I have been following them on social media ever since I made a turn into healthier eating. Having the pleasure of dining and treating myself to all of their vegan desserts as well as lunch one day and an Acai bowl (pictured) for breakfast another day was rather exciting. 42 Raw is a contemporary take on plant based eating, they have a few different locations around the city and they offer lots of raw, vegan light lunches, cakes, shakes, desserts, juices and snacks!
Café Livingstone – We walked to Café Livingstone on our last morning as we had been highly recommended it by a friend. Café Livingstone has a different concept which can be quite fun – build your own brunch! You are given a menu with a pencil to which you then choose between either 5 dishes or 7 dishes as a set menu. You then select all the different dishes, which range from smoked salmon, avocado, eggs and sausages to cinnamon rolls, grapefruit, Danish cheeses and cookies! It honestly has something to suit everyone, best of all it all comes out on small side plates so you can share everything too! Café Livingstone is also located right on the lake so depending on the time of year you can sit outside and enjoy some fresh air and a nice view whilst enjoying your brunch. It is also located in a trendy area of town so spend some time getting lost in the streets behind it for some awesome shopping and great vibes!
Palaeo – Conveniently right next to one of the 42 degree raw branches. Palaeo is a completely paleo-diet based menu. The food here is delicious and the portions are generous, I opted for a wrap which came as an egg white wrap, a great idea which I will be taking home with me! The service here is fast, it’s healthy fast food on the go. They have a range of salads, wraps, sandwiches made from their homemade bread as well as signature dishes like the Palaeo burger and sweet potato fries which we tried. A great little place to have a quick meal at before an afternoon of exploring the city!
Atelier September – We tried several coffee shops in Copenhagen however Atelier September had to be my favourite! I loved the interiors and watching the staff who were so passionate about what they served. The coffee is some of the best coffee I have ever had, a must if you like your coffee and sitting in the window to people watch!
