Shopping along Stroget in Copenhagen, Denmark

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!

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.

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.

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…

The most striking feature , however, is the enormous hanging birdcage. The tweeting of these birds add another charm to the room.
