Coming from Sweden, I find France quite exotic. The fantastic espresso, the croissants for breakfast and the fashionable people. I’m quite a fan of the lifestyle, or at least the small part you get to see, when you travel through the country or stop by in Paris.

The small French café Voulez Vous? is situated in one of the small streets downtown and when you enter, you get welcomed by young men that talk to you in a mix of Danish, English and French. Do I have to tell you that it’s authentic? There is a small mix of dishes at the menu and my favorite is the “French Breakfast”. For 49 crowns (which is quite cheap for a breakfast in Copenhagen – almost like when I’m in France!) you get three slices of delicious bread, a croissant, some jam and a small glass with yoghurt. With a coffee and a juice on the side, you end up paying 100 crowns.

Inside, upstairs, the small café reminds me of a kitchen on the countryside. There is a long table in the middle, and if you want a good view, you can take a seat in the window. It’s white. Light. Fresh.

Even if I like the countryside, I like the sunshine outside even more. If you want one of the good spots in the sun, you have to be fast. There are only three small tables, and people will pass by you and your breakfast non-stop. That, however, is part of the charm and this sweet mix of Copenhagen and France.
