    We stopped for a late lunch at this conveniently-located restaurant on a busy Copenhagen square. Wish we'd looked at the reviews! Then we would have been prepared for the large portions. My friend ordered the tomato soup -- it was a rainy day and she wanted to take the chill off. I ordered a trio of mini salmon burgers, one was for my friend.The soup was probably enough for 3. Very good, my friend thought although she could not finish it. I ate most of my 2 burgers, which were nicely prepared and garnished. We each had a glass of wine. The bill was 525DKK, about $105 Cdn! So large portions, good food, high, Danish prices, but better than being in the rain!

    Cafe Norden has been on our list ever since reading the Cotton Malone books by Steve Berry. Of course we had to try their famous Tomato Soup! I don't know why it surprised us, but this restaurant was right on the main pedestrian walk (Stroget) on Hojbro Plads. I guess I was expecting it to be a hidden gem, off of the beaten path. Even though it is in the heart of the tourist area, it is fantastic & well worth visiting. You place your order and pay at the bar/counter and then when your order is ready they will bring it to your table. It was very busy when we visited with two lines waiting to order. I recommend if you see an open table take it. I had seen some bowls, which I wrongly assumed were the "soup" bowls. As a result besides the order of tomato soup, I also ordered the miniburgers (3 sliders of your choice mix or match; BBQ Chicken, Beef with bacon, Smoked salmon, or Vegetarian) for my wife & I to share. The tomato soup came in a LARGE bowl & would have been sufficient by itself. It was out of this world delicious & is served with several slices of bread. The sliders were almost the size of a normal burger. I had ordered 2 Beef & one BBQ Chicken; they were awesome! Even though this place is in a prominent tourist location, if you're in Copenhagen you really should have lunch here at least once.

    Cafe Norden is located at a busy square on the sunny side of the street so if you like to have a nice cup of coffee or tea while watching people pass by this is the spot. We didn't have food but the food on the plates was presented in such a nice way that it was really tempting. We had coffee and tea with some cookies and pastry and everything was delicious. Compared to other places in Copenhagen the prices are reasonable (cafe latte 60DKr or about 6 Euros, Coke is 40DKr or 4Euros, cookie 40DKr or 4Euros etc.). The staff was very polite and friendly. The only thing I didn't like was the way the tables outside were crammed (3 small tables next to each other so you are sitting too close to other people for my taste not to mention the difficulty getting to your table if it is in the corner).

    Being vegetarian its a task to get good food but this restaurant full filled our requirements. We ordered Rosemary potatoes, vegetarian burgers, soup, and strawberry tart all these things were so tasty only nachos average. Its a must try!!!

    Bad attitude, terrible service, indifferent waiters, broken cutlery. The guy who took the order actually tried to discourage us from ordering food, not to mention he couldn't care less I couldn't read the all Danish menu and didn't bother to explain. After being long ingored we were actually served burnt scraps of food with just one fork and a broken knife, even though it was two of us. Small bugs were flying around our plate and glasses. We were made to feel so unwanted, I asked them whether it was closing time (it wasn't). Unless we got them on the worst night of their lives, this place is really bad.

    The brunch here may be pricey but it's very delicious and accommodating to different food preferences. Had a lush vegetarian brunch with all high quality ingredients. Gem in Copenhagen!

    Went there on a city trip with a friend for my birthday. I live in London, so I am used to pricy stuff, but this place has some steeply priced things. We had the brunch plate and the selection of Smorrebrods and it was INSANELY GOOD. Huge portions, clever twists on Danish classics, and we left very happy and were glad that we treated ourselves there. Wouldnt be able to to do it all the time, but great place. And especially if you love Art Deco and/or people-watching.

    They have a strange idea of a "half self-service": you make your order at the counter, pay immediately but then receive your food to the table by the waiter. It's not obvious, so, better to know in advance. All the rest is very pleasant: design, atmosphere, staff, food and drinks. So, it's a good place to have a rest in the very city center. Definitely recommend!

    Popped in for coffe and cake. Popped out £30 lighter! Cafe Norden is situated in a good location in the middle of the central shopping street. We sat upstairs on a lovely day in summer when the windows were open and we could gaze down on the activity below. The coffee was lovely, although not the best I have had. We shared some delicious blackberry cheesecake as the prices were extortionate!! Good coffee, great cakes, but too expensive!

    We found Cafe Norden after a morning of exploring and were very happy to find such a venue for our delicious lunch. Staff were efficient, friendly and able to assist with our gluten free request. Would definitely recommend.

    Very good food here! Self seating upstairs, there is outside seating but smokers bother me so I find myself eating inside a lot in Europe. The upstairs is very nice, large picture windows throughout with views of the shopping district high end stores. Fur (probably fake) blankets and pillows on the window seats. Very nice! Love the food and brews, visited several times during our stay in Copenhagen. Worth every penny! The cozy plate has a salmon salad sandwich, small tomato soup, different types of crackers with cheese and jam, and a small desert (pudding was on mine). My daughter had the burgers, very good! Menu rotates some selections by month. Order at the bar, the staff takes care of the rest.

    Coming to the city late in the afternoon, finding Cafe Norden in Oestergade would be the best thing that one can do. Located in the busy area of shopping and dining, this restaurant is ideal for a quick treat of snack and drink or to go for a full blown meal. Service is quick, taste is excellent, to say in short ! There is tomato bisque with bread to start with, that will make you feel you made the right choice to come to this restaurant. With ample space upstairs and inside & outside on the ground, finding a table was not very difficult in the busy afternoon. It was only a matter of minutes to get one. A place one will remember with good vibes of eating great food with smiling service !

    Just has pastries and coffee here, loved the coffee great smell and aroma, just wish it was really hot. The raspberry pastry and breads all great and not overly sweet. Great patio seating for people watching. Staff friendly and place consistently busy.

    Nice place to stop for a coffee and pastry. Weather was lovely so we sat outside watching the world go by! Staff were friendly and service was quick. Pastries were lovely as was the tea and coffee.

    Restaurants in touristy areas are very hit or miss, and this one was perfect for us. We shared a plater with cheese and tomato soup and some delicious dessert - it was a memorable meal! We sat upstairs which was comfortable. To order you go to the bar, which is less convenient. I would definitely go back!

    A great cafe and restaurant right in the fountain square. Tables both inside and outside, it had very nice service with a decent menu too. Prices were standard for the tourist area. A very nice place to sip a drink and watch the people.
