Be warned, this is a long one. Those of you with a sweet tooth will not struggle in Copenhagen. Here are just some of many where you can get great sweet eats in the city...
A bakery and café specialising in absolutely beautiful 'small cakes' (for want of a better word). Cakes, brownies, biscuits, cream puffs, little delicacies... These rhubarb meringue cakes are particularly mind-blowing. It's not the kind of place you'd stumble upon by accident; you sort of have to know about it. Hence why we're telling you - go visit!
Lagkagehuset’s direktørsnegl is enough to satisfy any hungry sweet toothed person. It’s a pastry of oozy glazed chocolatey cinnamon goodness. Once you’ve had your first, there’s no going back!
Frederiksberg Chocolate is quite the haven for sweet-toothed folk. It’s split into chocolate shop, and ice cream parlour. The ice cream itself is divine, and you can get your ice cream cone be dipped in molten chocolate (from the chocolate shop) and rolled in caramelised nuts, covered in sweet cream, etc… For more ice cream, checkout our Ice Cream guide.
Bertels is not for a weak hearted. Upon entering you’ll be struggling to choose from the incredible array of flavours ranging from the more healthy berry cheesecakes to full on no-apologies oreo cake. Then you’ll get a huge slice! We love it so much we also included it in our ‘Musts and unmissables’ guide.
The fast expanding doughnut shop that has become a city staple is where you’ll find - no surprises here - doughnuts! Continuously changing flavours and toppings, though the simply glazed one is very highly rated. The more you buy the cheaper they are (per doughnut)! They’re also are great at running competitions and free donut days too, so keep an eye out for those!
Chez Laurent is an amazing crêperie in Frederiksberg. Even the decor appeals to the sweet tooth, a mix of colour and quirks and gold! But more importantly, the crêpes, made by frenchman Laurent himself (if you’re lucky he might even bring yours out and stop to chat). They’re perfectly cooked, the flavour combos are perfect, and it’s all just, well, perfect.
Social Foodies are all about organic, ethics, quality, and sweet things! Gorgeous slabs of chocolate, some of Copenhagen’s best flødeboller (whipped creamy marshmallow/meringue inside solid chocolate - pictured), and plenty of amazing ice cream!
Neighbourhood is a pizza and cocktail restaurant, and since we’re talking sweet, let’s focus on the cocktails. The menu changes but you are always be guaranteed to find something to your liking, all made with organic home-infused spirits, freshly made vegetable and fruit juices, herbs, berries, beers, etc…
If a sweet berry breakfast is your thing, you won’t find better than Café Det Vide Hus.’ In this cosy little café you’ll also find amazing coffee, tea and amusingly-named homemade ice creams.
The yogurt shop is great. Marike and Christina, the ladies behind it all, have a great selection of yogurts then you can choose your mix and toppings from options such as ‘Salty caramel’, ‘Red liquorice’, ’Indulgence’ and ‘Chocolate by serenity’, or come up with your own.
Strangas Dessert Boutique is all about appealing to the sweet-tooth; desserts, cakes, macarons, fresh-baked bread and plenty more! It has fast become one of Copenhagen’s top sweet spots!
Ro chokolade is a little shop on lovely Jægersborggade, where you can get handmade chocolates and ice cream. The focus is very much on always using quality raw ingredients, no matter how small and insignificant. Chocolates come in various flavours and forms with incredible fillings. Definitely worth a try!
