Copenhagen Bakery Porn

Trip date: July 2019

Bakery? Bageri? Whatever you want to call it, baked goods in Copenhagen are delicious! On my last trip I had only visited Andersen Bakery by the main train station. But as I dreamt of returning to Denmark, I started reading about all these lovely bakeries around the city. And I started making a list.


First up Sankt Peders Bageri, the oldest bakery in Copenhagen, founded in 1862! The tiny bakery is in the Latin Quarter and has just a handful of tables and chairs. There was a gorgeous selection of goodies to choose from but I was there for the pastry of the day, which was a very good cinnamon bun.

I was able to enjoy my breakfast and a great cup of coffee seated at a shared comfy couch with a couple other customers. On Wednesdays the bakery is known for its "onsdagssnegle" or sticky cinnamon roll. Although I was there on a Tuesday I was still very happy with my bun!

One day Aaron, Sherri, Albert and I went on a bakery crawl. I mean besides a cocktail crawl, that is a pretty delicious outing!

Our first stop was at Democratic Coffee Bar which has a space in the main library building.
It's cool and hip and most importantly delicious! The coffee is single source and they roast it themselves. All the croissants are made inhouse. There's wifi, vinyl, books, etc. It's a really great spot to hang out or meet up!

We stopped into The Corner Coffee Bar but it was a bit late in the morning and they were out of pastries. Looked like a great place for lunch though and they have a wine bar.

Granny's House is in this gorgeous old building and a lot of locals rave about. Maybe it was an odd time, but there wasn't much in the cases and the proposed "shabby chic" decor just seemed shabby. We had a coffee but no pastries.

But all was made right in the world when we stepped into Hart Bageri. Every single item in the case looked so good!

I wanted everything but I finally decided on the strawberry pastry with vanilla cream. Someone got the cardamom bun too.  They also have a selection of really nice tea and coffee. The space isn't cozy, it's almost industrial-hip, but it was still comfortable to sit and enjoy the delicious treats. The staff is fantastic.
Hart wasn't close to really anything else that we were seeing in the city but it was more than worth the busride. Seriously, if you are going to go to one bakery, make it Hart!

My final pastry of the trip was a Danish at the Lagkagehuset Bakery airport outpost. I mean, you can't go to Denmark and not have a Danish right?
