When calling this article ”early breakfast”, you might think that I’m talking about places that serve breakfast from 6 or 7 AM. Well, that a bit too early. But it’s surprisingly hard to find a decent breakfast at 8 AM in Copenhagen as well, if you don’t know where to go. Here are three options that always deliver.

Café Parterre
If you’re close to Christianshavn, this is definitely a good place to go if you want some breakfast. Parterre opens at 7 AM, and serves a delicious breakfast all morning. You can pick and mix what ever you want, and on the menu you’ll find different kinds of bread and sandwiches, yoghurt, croissants and egg.
Address: Ovengaden Oven Vandet 90, Christianshavn

Café Auto
At Auto, as well as ithe sister cafés Taxa (Nørrebro) and Pixie (Østerbro), you get a complete breakfast for only 55 dkk every weekday between 8-10 AM. The menu changes a bit at the three different cafés, and at Auto you’ll get a soft-boiled egg, some yoghurt with müsli and berries, bread, ham and cheese. A coffee on the side, and you’re up running by no time.
Address: Griffenfeldsgade 22, Nørrebro

This sweet little café opens early. You can get some morning porridge from 7.30 AM at both Nørrebro and their small shop in Torvehallerne. A bowl of porridge costs around 55 dkk, and you’ll definitely be full until lunch. Porridge for breakfast might sound a bit boring, but I promise you that isn’t the case. This porridge is the best in town.
Address: Jægersborggade 50, Nørrebro and Torvehallerne
