Café Rosa - best cinnamon rolls in CopenhagenCafé Rosa - best cinnamon rolls in Copenhagen

Since I’m Swedish, the Swedish cinnamon rolls will always have a special place in my heart. However, Swedish cinnamon rolls are almost impossible to find in Denmark. In Denmark they eat Danish pastry, and in the Danes world, Danish pastry with a bit of extra cinnamon almost counts like a real cinnamon roll. No!

The answer to my problem/prayers is a small café called Café Rosa. It’s situated in Torvehallerne (the indoor farmers market), and I absolutely love it. The woman that owns Café Rosa is from Japan, and a few years ago she moved to Scandinavia to learn how to bake Swedish buns and cakes. After that, she opened her small Swedish café.

Her inspiration comes from the Swedish fictional character Pippi Långstrump (Pippi Longstocking). Everything in her tiny café is painted in different colors, things are turned the wrong way and the owner always wears knee socks, just like Pippi. Nothing matches and I love it. The cakes are big and sweet, the coffee is good and the cinnamon rolls are the best in Copenhagen.
