The first time I visited Kalaset was in the summer 2011. My companion, the Danish Film Critic-guy, ordered pancakes and I had a small breakfast. We sat outside with our fingers crossed, since the sky was dark and it had rained during the night. A few minutes after our food came, the rain came, and we had to move inside. A pity when all you want is a bit of (Danish) summer.

However, if you need to sit inside for a breakfast, some coffee or a beer, Kalaset is one of my favorite spots to do it. The furniture are old and different, and the whole place is a miss-match between colors from the 70s. This place is for people caring more about a nice atmosphere, good company and great food, than matching tables and chairs.

Kalaset has a small menu for all of the day. If you come here in the morning, I recommend the pancakes. They have a vegetarian brunch, and a “normal” brunch. They serve coffee, beer, burgers, a few dishes and drinks. A good idea is to check out their “2 drinks for the price of 1”-list in the evening, they have some really good ones.
