Stroget is one of the most well known streets in Copenhagen, tho’ it actually consists of 5 streets: Ostergade, Amagertorv, Nygade, Vimmelskaftet and Frederiksberggade. Phew! It has an intimate charm, due largely to it’s medieval origins and is both cosmopolitan and stylish.
We decided to have breakfast right by Hojbro Plads, a square at the heart of Stroget along Amargertorv, in a cafe called Europa1989. The brunches sounded really good, and well as you can see, they didn’t disappoint!
The boys both opted for the full ‘Amagertorv’. The restaurant isn’t a looker as such, but everyone around was instagraming their breakfasts.
I went for the vegetarian option and felt silly excited by the little pots and bowls of this and that. The yogurt they called Skyr was really special.
Charlotte picked and chose from the menu individual bits. Good girl, quite right. Pour that maple syrup over the bacon too it’d be lovely!
Very satisfied we hit the streets just as the shops were opening.
The vibe was cool, shabby chic with graffiti in places.
and super neat and set with perfect flowers in others.
It was quirky. I really liked it. Everywhere women pedaled these cargo bikes with little children in the front.
Peter Beier caught my eye. They whole family knows this will take a bit of time and there is no point in protesting. It’s a must for all chocolate lovers who visit Copenhagen.
This is a quality chocolate shop where everything is handcrafted and it smells divine.
The family gets involved James spots something really special.
This box of chocolates are the job. Probably ideal if we were back in the UK, but even I can’t get through this many in a weekend.
The boxes they come in are so lovely and unique.
OK time to make our decision. The lady who served us was really friendly and smiley so we are having lots of fun.
Everyone picks a few for later.
Happy with our little box of chocolate we are back on Stroget or one of the nearby streets. There are reminders of the Medieval origins.
The shops are creative and interesting. They made the narrow streets feel intimately charming.
The flower shop sets this street off with style.
Time for some nourishment so we head into 42Raw.
You’ve guessed it every things raw here. It’s very ‘in’. I’ve heard about their chocolate chip cookie so I buy a few to try.
You can’t make an unhealthy choice here. It’s not possible.
Everything is ‘just as nature intended’. I feel I have my mojo back before we even get our smoothies served.
Very chuffed with my purchases. Those cookies do exercise the jaw, but I found them very moreish, just put the Cadburys choc chip version out your mind. These are grown up and guilt free.
We get our smoothies and they are extremely good. They taste super healthy but not like you are supping on regurgitated cud thankfully, instead they were sweet and refreshing.
We pass the front of the posh and swanky Hotel D’Angleterre and met a happy rich bloke.
Soon after we find this curious ‘house’ of a Tage Anderson. It turns out his focus is to create the ‘whole’ in whatever he does. Bare with me, it’s really pretty…
Plants and flowers feature big (and are really quite stunning).
as do natural materials and traditional crafts.
The most striking feature , however, is the enormous hanging birdcage. The tweeting of these birds add another charm to the room.
Back out, we admire delicious looking bakes.
and find this adorable looking courtyard.
