I used to work at RETRO Nørrebro before. It’s a café where everyone is volunteers, and I used to be in the event team. The event team met every now and then and we held long meetings in the old sofas, talking about ideas and plans and funny things, just to be able to sit there and drink coffee for a bit longer. Because RETRO is just one of those places where you can sit forever.

I either go there for work (they have free wifi), or for playing board games with my friends. When I go there for work, I usually head over to Meyer’s Bageri on the other side of the street first, and buy a chocolate scones. Then I buy black coffee with milk at RETRO, and sit in the window with my computer for a few hours.

When I go with friends, we usually find one of the small couches in the back, and some of all the board games the café has. I’m quite a big fan of their organic soda. If it’s late in the evening, I’ll choose a beer. RETRO has their own “homemade” beer, and I always buy it – both to support the idea and because I actually designed the label to the beer…
