Quite close to where I live, you’ll find Nørrested. A small cosy café that has turned into one of my favorite places to hang out in Copenhagen. The first time I saw it, it was closed, but the next day I returned, eager to find out more about this new café. That was half a year ago, and I’ve spent quite a lot of money on coffee there since.
There are several reasons to why I like Nørrested so much. One is their big selection of… milk! Yes, milk. At Nørrested you can get your cappuccino with almond milk, soya milk, oat milk (that’s my favorite, it’s really good!), lactose free cow milk and “normal” cow milk. And during the summer, they had a vegan ice coffee that totally blew my mind.
Another reason I like Nørrested is the atmosphere. The owner is an electrician, and when he’s not preparing coffee at the café, he’s out working. When he’s there, he’s always up for a chat and he scores several bonus points for 1) remember how I want my coffee from time to time and 2) suggesting me to try new things. I would never have tried the ice coffee, if he hadn’t told me to order that instead of a normal cappuccino this summer.
Before I tried Nørrested I missed having a “café next door”, even if I have plenty cafés next door. They just haven’t been my café next door. Nørrested is and it was definitely wort waiting for.
PS. A funny small detail. The owner makes his own lamps that he sells at the café. It’s very charming.
