Last time I visited Café Nice I talked to the owner after our dinner. “It’s not often there are any tourists here” she told me. “Most locals, from the neighborhood”. That makes sense; since Café Nice isn’t situated in a place you just pass by. You need to know it’s there (and you should, because it’s a fantastic place).

I have the same dish every time I’m there: moules frites. That’s the dish they are famous for, and if you like mussels that is the dish you should go for. Café Nice is moules frites.

The small restaurant looks like no other restaurant I’ve been to in Copenhagen. It’s a poetic mismatch of French accessories, lots of paintings on the wall, an old cigarette machine. There are candles and plastic flowers in small vases at the tables. The menu is painted on the wall and they don’t except credit cards. It’s like going to France, just a couple of streets away.
