With many places to sojourn for a hot drink, these 5 hip coffee shops not to miss in Copenhagen are just a few of my favorites. With a focus on cozy spaces and intimate design, the Danish culture around drinking hot beverages is one of the best I’ve experienced. There’s a wide range of styles of coffee, from classics like cappuccinos to the newly-popular cortados served in each of these cafes. What I loved most about grabbing a cup of coffee in Copenhagen, was that you were never rushed out. You could spend hours cozied up with a book and be totally left alone.
One of my favorite coffee shops to visit was the Original Coffee Illum as it had an incredible view over town and the outdoor terrace was perfect for soaking in the afternoon sun. It was certainly one of the busiest cafes in the city as well and their pastries are amazing! All of these cafes are located throughout the city, so you’ll always have a spot to visit and you’ll find yourself especially in the winter months, retreating to a coffee shop. Each of these are unique in design and have different atmospheres, which made it fun to explore during the time in Copenhagen.

PS — Are You Booking a Trip Soon? Use My Booking Checklist!
These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.
1. Book Your Flights
Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.
2. Book Your Accommodations
Use Booking.com for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.
3. Book Your Tours & Experiences
4. Book Your Car
Use Discover Cars or Rentalcars.com to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.
5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access
Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.
6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance
I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.
My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
