One for the freelancers, students, and weekend workers. When you really don't fancy a day at the office, in bed on your laptop, plenty of cafés in Copenhagen provide a wonderfully caffeinated working/studying environment...
Kaffebaren på Amager is a firm local favourite, and it’s easy to see why... The place and the people are so welcoming, the coffee is brilliant, as are the cakes and the simple daily menu. It’s the kind of place you can relax for the whole day with family, a book, or your laptop. This photo by @thehazertazer makes it look small, but actually the café extends into several cosy rooms underground too - it’s huge!
@thelabkitchen is on the first floor of @thelabcph and is open for everyone, to pop in for breakfast, coffee, lunch, or hang out all day working and soaking up the studio vibes. We did all of the above. The chefs - Daniel & Thomas have a thing for eggs!
Democratic Coffee is next door to and part of the main library, but this is no average library coffee, and in fact serves some of Copenhagen's best. They also have a brilliant bakery responsible for @thehazertazer's favourite almond croissants!
Retro, as the name implies, is a quirky little place full of great assorted furniture, people playing board games over coffee, working, reading, writing, gaming, anything goes. It’s easy to while away hours in such a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. And they’re a non-profit café, so, the work is voluntary and all proceeds go to humanitarian development. @addeddash is quite the regular!
'Nutid' aka 'Present' is a great spacious place upstairs and downstairs full of students working and the tempting aroma of coffee (or beer/glass of wine if that suits your style better). It's entirely run by volunteers, and all profits donated to the world’s poorest and neediest - amazing. Photo by @thehazertazer.
@maartjepaardjestaartje has perfectly captured this cosy, quirky place. Go for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, drinks - you name it, it’s served here (and it’s nice)! You can also get coffee refills, to keep you fuelled throughout the day!
Little known spot by the lakes, Café Altanen, is the perfect place to work with a coffee like @byqueenbee, or while away the hours with friends. The larger table is also great for group work or meetings, and you'll feel very welcome for the whole day. They do some lovely simple lunches, freshly squeezed juice and lagkagehuset cakes.
For the perfect place to sit and work alone or with friends whilst enjoying a coffee, a beer, a snack or a meal, Bevar’s is open from morning through to night, has power outlets everywhere, and it's cosy with good music. They also have a meeting room out back, should you need it! Photo by @shellsten.
Sidecar changes throughout the day, and they do a lot of things damn well. Coffee, juice, lunch - photographed by @rasmusbjorndahl, cocktails, and pop-up Bao evenings every weekend. There's always a few working away on Macbooks!
Noho is one of those rare places that gets it right for Work, AND for Play. (For Work, there's a blue neon sign.) So take your laptop in the day and grab a coffee, and head there at night to drink fabulous cocktails. In their words, it's a "workplace for freelancers, rascals and likeminded."

The best place to spend the day, working or chilling with a coconut milk iskaffe and great plant-based foodie offerings! Photo: @byqueenbee.
Bacchouse sits on the corner of Øster Farimagsgade and Sølvgade and is the perfect place to window perch with a laptop and a coffee, and people watch like @lily__rose.
If cosying up with your Macbook is your scene, and perhaps a cortado and a carrot cake like @hendederkristine, you'll be quite at home at the "Nameless café", which is always full of locals relaxing and working, enjoying the quirky vibes this place has got going on.
