If you live in the middle of Nørrebro like I do, it sometimes get too much. Too much hipsters at the same places, the cafés look too much like the others down the street and too many places with expensive coffee. Sometimes I need a break from all that, and when I do, I often go to Tante T at Vesterbro.

When you enter Tante T you feel like you’ve traveled back in time. The furniture reminds me of something from the 1930s, and the black and white framed photos at the wall make me think of stories that my grandparents used to tell me when I was a kid.

In my opinion this is the best place if you want some peace and quiet, and if you want some really good tea. There are several flavors to choose from, and on one of the walls’, there are small bottles with all the flavors, so you can smell them before you make a decision. I usually end up with ‘Cool Summer’, a wonderful green tea.

Tante T might be a bit expensive, but if you compare it to places like The Coffee Collective and Kent Kaffe Laboratorium, which serve the best coffee in town, it’s no big difference. A cup of tea and a scones cost 65 dkk, and if you really want an experience, you should try some of their delicious cakes.
