Pop up-restaurants are the new black in Copenhagen. A returning event is the pop up-bakery Sweet Sneak, which I had the pleasure to visit last Sunday.

Sweet Sneak pops up where ever the five girls behind the bakery want. They’ve been hosting it for a year, and so far they’ve been in a back yard, at Republikken at Vesterbro and a design office, to mention a few. This time it’s held at a private apartment.

When I stand in the door opening and look into the apartment at Nørrebrogade 112, where the bakery is hold, it’s crowded. Chaos. A delicious smell of cakes. Coffee.

There are people everywhere and my friend Karen and I almost need to fight our way to the end of the line, and then we wait impatient for our turn, before we finally are the first in line, just next to the big table with cakes. There are coloured cupcakes. Macarons. Scones. Birthday cake. Carrot cake. And so it continues.

The cakes cost between 20-30 crowns, and for 15 crowns extra, you get a cup of coffee. I choose a chocolate scone, while Karen goes for a piece of carrot cake, and then we look for an empty spot on the floor. We find one, in the middle of everything, and for the next 30 minutes we empty our plates and mugs while watching the line grow longer and longer.

When we are done, we try to find our way out of the apartment again. Our shoes and coats are hidden in a bunch of other shoes and coats, and it almost feels like leaving a private party. It’s hot, I almost had to scream to have a conversation and I’ve had a good time. I might just pop by the next time as well.
