It’s barely any secret that the short street Værnedamsvej is something special. Sometime it reminds me of New York. Other days it makes me think of Berlin. I guess it’s the many colors and the small flower boutique in the middle of the street as well as the fancy people passing by.
A few weeks ago, a new place opened in Værnedamsvej. It’s called RIST Kaffebar, and is a small coffee bar with two tiny tables and a few unmatched chairs outside. The sidewalk is not very big, but when the sun shines several guests move their chairs outside, to enjoy both a good coffee and the sun at the same time. It’s Copenhagen in a nutshell.
When I go inside to order, I ask the woman preparing my coffee how long they’ve been open. “Only for three weeks” she tells me. “It’s going really good, and we already have a few people that comes down every morning for breakfast”. That’s a good sign. A coffee bar with frequenters is usually a good coffee bar, and I’m sure that I’ll visit again as well.
