This group of more than 30 cafés across Denmark are open early, so they’re great for breakfast. The tea, coffee, and sandwiches are all very nice, but what really sets Lagkagehuset apart is the quality of the cakes. It would take an iron will to resist one of their strawberry tarts or a slice of Christianshavnerkage, a hazelnut torte topped with strawberry-vanilla cream and berries. The café in Copenhagen overlooks the lakes, and when the water glitters on a sunny day, there are few places more pleasant for an impromptu afternoon tea.
Lagkagehuset is a bakery chain with high quality cakes, bread, Danishes, cupcakes, and everything in between. Despite having multiple locations around the city, my personal favorite is the store on the corner across from Christianshavn Metro due to its immediate proximity to Christianshavn Canal.
