Caffeinated Copenhagen - the home of Scandi style coffee
In the land of good food and wine, coffee completes the gastronomic trinity in Copenhagen.
Coffe Bars in Copenhagen not only offer quality coffee, they also offer specially designed spaces and surroundings with a strong focus on aesthetics and great design to enjoy your coffee in.
The design and space of a good café is almost half the experience when going out for a coffee. And given Copenhagen and Denmark’s love affair with sleek lines and masterly built furniture, it makes sense that some of the city’s best cafés are also some of the best looking.
The Scandinavian design heritage recur throughout most coffee bars in the city, but more often than not you’ll find traces of Japanese, French or other exotic design features woven into the classic minimalism to give it some extra flair.
The newest spot from Coffee Collective in Copenhagen. Located in the 120 meter tall Pasteurs Tower, the café is designed by Design Studies and is definitely the most impressive of all the Coffee Collective shops. The aesthetics lean heavily on raw materials like exposed vertical bricks, Douglas fir and concrete.
Located inside the National Gallery of Denmark. Founded by restaurateur Frederik Bille Brahe and designed by Danh Vo. The overall look is a mix of classic Danish (and Italian) design furniture and minimalistic lines combined with a Japanese touch. Entrance to the café does not require a museum ticket.
The first location of Prolog was originally supposed to be a temporary coffee bar but stayed because of its success. The bar is a rather weird and tiny space. But everything is neat and stylish with a wall of magazines, raw and painted wood in blue/green and the constant ambience of French radio playing in the background. The space is designed by OEO Studio and is definitely a unique look on the Scandi coffee scene.
The café at Design Museum Danmark almost has to be good looking. And luckily it is. OEO Studio redesigned the café and museum shop along with the recent overall renovation of the museum and went with a ‘monolithic’ approach letting the heavy stone floor and massive steel doors shine through. Naturally you can sit on a myriad of different Danish design classics both inside and outside in the lovely garden.
