Sitting just off the busy Strøget pedestrian street but inhabiting a hushed, quaint parallel universe, this venerable tearoom and cake shop is the epitome of Danish hygge (which translates loosely as coziness). Its window display—maybe the most photographed attraction in Copenhagen, next to the Little Mermaid—stops foot traffic, and the marble-topped tables inside are occupied by grandmothers treating their saucer-eyed grandchildren. Start the sugar rush with wienerbrød (Americans know it as a Danish), a buttery pastry that's so flaky it makes every other Danish look like a spongy loofah. Many of the cakes are named after great Danes: The Karen Blixen (a.k.a. Isak Dinesen) is a caffeinated gothic tale in itself, told in layers of chocolate sponge, mocha truffle, roasted hazelnuts, and coffee mousse; the H.C. Andersen cake mixes lemon mousse and raspberry butter for an apt approximation of the writer's sweet-and-sour, lovelorn life. The popular sports cake is piled so high with whipped cream it looks like foam night in Ibiza.

Closed Sundays from Easter through September; open daily the rest of the year.
