The street Jægersborggade in the Nørrebro neighbourhood has turned from dodgy to hip and is one of the hippest and most buzzing streets in Copenhagen at the moment. Today, the small residential street is home to around 40 art galleries, organic produce shops, vintage clothes, ceramics and jewellery designers, as well as wine bars, coffee shops and restaurants. Here you will find the Michelin-starred restaurant Relæ, not to mention some of the best coffee around, at The Coffee Collective, which is a specialty micro roastery and coffee consulting company. World Barista Champion and twice national champion Klaus Thomsen is behind The Coffee Collective. On Jægersborggade you will also find the only caramel cookery in Copenhagen, Karamelleriet, Meyers Bakery, Ro Chokolade, Manfreds wine bar and the underground wine bar Terroiristen. The street is not to be missed if you want to experience a youthful and grass root vibe.

Jægersborggade is an unexpected success story. A few years ago no one would have thought to visit the somewhat scruffy street in Nørrebro, but today it’s spruced up and has become a magnet for people interested in food, art, and design. Order a bowl of porridge at super-fashionable Grød, get a cup of coffee made from the finest Bolivian beans at the Coffee Collective, or perhaps buy one of Inge Vincent’s beautiful white porcelain designs. And don’t miss the organic ice cream at Istid that’s been chilled with liquid nitrogen.
