The Best Vegan-Friendly Cafes in Copenhagen

Denmark’s capital Copenhagen is not exactly known for vegan cuisine; yet like most modern cosmopolitan cities, vegan food is becoming more and more prevalent.

I was only in Copenhagen for a couple of days and given that I was on a tight budget and staying in a hostel, I ate a cheap dinners in the (surprisingly vegan-friendly) hostel bar both nights.

So although I don’t have as much food porn to post as normal, there’s still a few places I discovered, which I just had to share!

Espresso Huset

Not to be confused with coffee shop chain Espresso House – which is dotted all over Copenhagen – Espresso Huset near Christianborg Palace is an independent cafe.

As I’d had no luck finding anything suitable to eat in the major chain, I hoped to fare better in this cosy, urban-styled cafe. They had a vegetarian sandwich on the menu but nothing vegan; however, the staff were more than happy to adapt the veggie one for me and create something tasty to order.

I ended up with an avocado and vegetable sandwich, which was generously filled and really hit the spot! I got a refreshing iced soya latte to go with it.

They also offered a great range of cakes, pastries and baked goods for those looking for a sugar fix.

The cafe had a relaxing atmosphere, so I decided to eat in and make use of their free WiFi and charge points!

Morgenstedet

You don’t have to go far within the walls of hippy neighbourhood Freetown Christiania to find veggie food.

Morgenstedet is an entirely vegetarian cafe with plenty of vegan dishes. A plate of food costs less than 100 DKK (approx. £10 – decent for Copenhagen!) and you can choose from a mix of hot and cold dishes.

I can’t remember exactly what I ended up with but it was a mix of vegan salads (rice noodles, tofu, potato and carrots all featured), which were all fresh and tasty!

The food is made fresh daily and the cafe is staffed by volunteers so dishes vary depending who’s on shift. There’s no table service and you clear your own plate once finished, which gives the place a real community vibe.

I sat outside in the garen, which was perfect place for a spot of people watching.

The Organic Boho

Just a few minutes’ walk from Christiania, I stumbled upon vegan cafe The Organic Boho.

As the name suggests, their entire menu is organic as well as plant-based. With slogans like, “Reducing your carbon footprint, meal by meal” and “Eat local, think global” adorning their signage, the cafe definitely had a bit of a hippy vibe, which I loved.

They offered a whole lot of tasty-looking breakfast bowls, smoothies and juices, bowls, salads, burgers and more. As I’d just had lunch, sadly I could only fit a drink in!

I went for a caramel frappe with almond milk, which was delicious and refreshing without being too sweet.

Actually, I enjoyed it so much, I stayed for a cheeky almond milk cappuccino too…

Prices were reasonable (again, it’s Copenhagen – so not cheap) and service was friendly and fast. There was a good amount of indoor seating (with plug sockets – a traveller’s best friend!) and a few tables out the front for those lucky enough to visit on a sunny day.

With only a weekend in Copenhagen, I didn’t get to sample as many eateries as I’d like but I did enjoy all the ones I stumbled upon. Guess I’ll just have to go back again to try more…

      1. Sarah, I was looking for you at LinkedIn several minutes ago. Do you have a LinkedIn account Sarah? How can I communicate more well to you Sarah? My LinkedIn account is:

      2. All right. I’m already connected to your LinkedIn account. I’ll also start following now your blogs at morethangreens.com. I’ll sleep now. I just message you now before I start sleeping now. Great night. Thank you more than words can express. Take care.

  1. Hi Sarah! Great Post. Copenhagen is one of my favourite cities in the world, it’s wonderful and simply the best for cycling around.
    I have to recommend a restaurant for anybody taking a trip there – Plant Power Food. This place is incredible. completely plant based restaurant with bright, vibrant, tasty dishes and a typical scandi-cool decor.

  2. Thank you for this post Sarah! I love Copenhagen and it’s great to know that there are some more vegan options popping up there too. I think you’re right, vegan food is definitely becoming more prevalent in most larger cities. But nevertheless it can still be difficult finding options so this it’s great that you’ve taken the time to give people some tips.
