When I was a child, I used to get candy at Saturdays. It’s called “lördagsgodis”, and I still remember the excitement when I opened the small bag and looked down on all the sweet things that were waiting for me. I kind of feel the same way when I go for coffee at Vesterbro. There are so many good cafés and bars waiting for me, that I haven’t discovered yet. I love the feeling, when I know that in this neighborhood, I’ll be able to find new favorites.

Yesterday, I stopped at a café called Høeg’s. It’s a little bit of everything, and even if I’ve only been there for ginger ale in the afternoon, I believe it’s a place that is just as good for food and beer as well. It’s second hand-ish, with windows out to a big street. It’s almost like an aquarium, in the good way.

Some of the windows are facing a street with lots of traffic, and I wonder if this might be a place that’s good when you want to be inside. I’ve biked passed it many times, and if it’s sunny, people enjoy the weather outside. However, enjoying the weather also means enjoying all the cars, and when that’s the situation, I prefer the cozy inside instead… In other words, a great October café.
