Eateries in the neighbourhood

Get inspiration on where to go if you dream of the city's best burger, a heavenly sourdough pizza, rooftop cocktails, barista coffee or cold draught beer. Here is an overview of the Carlsberg City District's cafés, restaurants and coffee and burger bars.

Aamanns Genbo

The Michelin-recommended restaurant Aamanns has reinvented the traditional Danish "smørrebrød" open-faced sandwiches, and now you can find the renowned restaurant on Kildepladsen in the Carlsberg City District.

Alexanders Bistro

Right next to the iconic Elephant Gate, you will find Alexander's Bistro: An all-day café with an ice cream café, games and lounge area and, as the name suggests, a bistro.

Burger Shack

Scoring 6 out of 6 hearts from Politiken's food reviewer, great praise has been lavished on the burgers from Burger Shack on Tapperitorvet in the Carlsberg City District. Here, hungry guests can enjoy their tasty burger menus while overlooking life on Tapperitorvet and the many students at University College Copenhagen.
Cadence brunch Carlsberg Byen Vesterbro

Cadence

Star chefs and bakers are curated from some of the city's best restaurants to take the Copenhagen brunch scene to new heights at Cadence.

Carls Øl- og Spisehus

Does 100 different beers in a 70-metre-long bar sound good to you? Then you have to make your way past Carls Øl- og Spisehus: a rustic brasserie and beer bar in a converted malt silo. Everything is served here, from food for sharing to brunch and 3-course menus, and there is a good atmosphere here, both during everyday service and during the place's many events.

Coffee Collective: Opening soon

The popular coffee chain Coffee Collective is coming to the Carlsberg City District this autumn. Here, they will open on the ground floor of the 120 metre Pasteur’s Tower – right by Margrethe Nørlund Bohr's Plads square.

Det Grønne Køkken

At Det Grønne Køkken, fresh ingredients, delicious, healthy salads and not least bagels and sandwiches are in focus. The fact that the people behind the counter are super nice as well only elevates the experience further.

Gasoline Grill

Gasoline Grill’s burgers have been voted among the world's best – and you can have them served from a historic building in the middle of the Bryggernes Plads square in the Carlsberg City District.

Hooked

The last few years, there has been no getting around the hip fish restaurant Hooked. With their lobster rolls, salmon burgers and poké bowls, they have literally sunk their hook into Copenhageners, and their popularity is unmistakable. In both 2018 and 2019, they won the title for the City's Best Street Food.

Hotel Ottilia

Welcome inside Hotel Ottilia in the Carlsberg City District, which offers an open lobby bar, Thursday events and a rooftop restaurant.

Kaffekilden

At Kaffekilden, they know their coffee. So well in fact, things can get very nerdy when you drop by. And do drop by, again and again, because it really deserves revisiting.

Kōnā

"The man behind the city's best ramen has opened a new Japanese restaurant with excellent comfort food in the Carlsberg City District," writes Politiken's food reviewer, awarding 4 impressive hearts to the Japanese dining house Kōnā. Meanwhile Berlingske's food reviewer awards 5 stars in a review with the headline "Former Noma chef's secret Japanese dining house has potential to be a regular hang-out".

Lagkagehuset

Strawberry cakes, pumpkin bread, blueberry pies, chocolate rolls, croissants, poppy seed-covered Danishes... And the list goes on. We all have a specific reason to make our way past Lagkagehuset, and in Lagkagehuset on Tapperitorvet, the shelves are packed with an incredibly delicious assortment.

Souls: Opening soon

In late summer, the restaurant Souls will open on the Købkes Plads square, letting you enjoy a vegan meal by pioneers in plant-based food.

Surt

“At Surt, guests will meet a cosy, informal atmosphere where you are at eye level with the pizza chefs, and everyone is welcome. We focus on making really good pizzas, but our menu will also be broader than that,” Giuseppe Oliva explains to migogkbh.dk.

Tramonto Rooftop

At the top of Hotel Ottilia, a new restaurant has seen the light of day. Tramonto Rooftop is the name of the new concept, where authentic Italian cuisine is served alongside an unsurpassed view of the Carlsberg City District and the rest of Copenhagen.
