2013 the café Atelier September was all over Instagram. In 2014 the Instagrammers in Copenhagen threw their love over the small café Parterre at Christianshavn. In the beginning of 2015, I guess that the most hyped place will be Mirabelle, a new organic bakery and café at Nørrebro.

I made my debut visit at Mirabelle this weekend, and when I stepped inside the door I totally realized what the hype is all about. Through the windows it doesn’t look that impressive, but when you actually stand in the middle of the café it does. The floor is white and dark blue, the lighting invites you to sit down and talk for a while and the open windows in to the bakery shows, that what you eat, is baked right now.

My friend Karen and I met Sunday afternoon, and we were lucky to grab two seats and a small table when two other persons left. The small café was packed and the selection of bread and cakes weren’t as big as we had seen on Instagram. I decided on a few slices of their sour dough bread (it tasted amazing) and Karen settled for a piece of mazarin cake. I didn’t try it, but she told me to write that it was one of the best pieces of mazarin cake that she ever had.

Mirabelle is probably most famous for their croissants. I haven’t had a chance to try one yet, but everyone I know that has tried it has made the message very clear to me: It’s good. The best one in Copenhagen actually. And that’s quite something, right?
