Food and Drink
Cute little vegan-friendly bar close to Copenhagen central station. They serve a few different bowl dishes mostly plant-based as well as juices and smoothies. It is very cozy inside. There is room for about 20 guests.
I went for the earth bowl which had quinoa, cauliflower, kale, edamame, avocado, portobello mushrooms, seaweed and a soya-cashew-dressing. Everything seemed fresh and healthy. Overall a really tasty dish and a good portion size which made me feel full but not too full. Most of my dish except the quinoa was cold so keep that in mind. I paid 95 DKK for my bowl. I also had a celery, carrot, turmeric and ginger juice which was really good and a little bit spicy.
A mediterranean restaurant with two locations in the center of Copenhagen. They offer a green buffet which was 89 DKK for lunch and 99 DK in the evening. There is plenty of room inside of the restaurant but also a few tables outside and you can sit outside, it's a cute little street.
You will find a lot of vegan choices at the buffet and each of them is labeled with the ingredients. You have to be a little bit careful when reading the labels because sometimes they don't exactly match up with the food next to it. Also, one dish was labeled vegan and had honey in it. The staff was very helpful and friendly pointing out to me the vegan dishes. I can recommend the hummus and falafel. Oh my, the falafel. Some of the best falafel I've had!
Nørre Farimagsgade 63. Or Melchiors Plads 3.
This is a restaurant offering healthy plant-based meals. It's not the cheapest, but then again Copenhagen is not cheap. I'd say it's a really nice place for a fancy dinner or date night.
They have two locations. We went to the one on Nørre Farimagsgade which is a short walk from the metro station Nørreport. If you go in the evening, I'd make a reservation in advance. We went on a thursday evening and luckily got the last two empty seats.
Souls serves breakfast, brunch, lunch, sides/snacks, dinner and dessert. They also serve pancakes all day long! On the dinners menu, they had a few not-your-average burgers, ramen, different salads and a hot bowl that I went for. I paid 148 DKK for my bowl. The dessert was 79 DKK and a dream!
A mostly raw and mostly vegan restaurant between Kongens Nytorv and Nørreport. The entrance is a little bit hidden and you walk down a short staircase. The inside is very cozy and has a minimalistic design which I really liked. There's pillows, candles, hanging plants and stone walls.
I had a poke bowl with BBQ portobellos, kimchi, cauliflower rice and red cabbage. It was mostly cold (I mean, its called SimpleRaw...) but sooo good. I loved the kimchi. They also serve burgers and rice paper rolls. I paid 90 DKK for my poke bowl.
Torvehallerne, Hal 2, Stade 8A, Linnésgade 17
This restaurant has several locations in Copenhagen. We went to the one in Torvehallerne which is a food market hall. They are not completely vegan but have a lot of vegan options. I chose the porridge for 70 DKK and you can choose 3 toppings. I went with apple compote, yogurt and peanut butter which they seemed to make themselves. It was a perfect meal to warm up and not too sweet. The raw cocoa balls were also delicious!
Peder Hvitfeldts Stræde 17
A cute little plant-based café in the city centre of Copenhagen near Nørreport Station. It is a little bit hidden and you have to walk up the stairs. The inside is very "hyggeligt" - they have wooden tables, comfy pillows, plants everywhere and very big windows. I think if I studied in Copenhagen I'd go there to study and work from my laptop. They also have a lot of books on vegan food, vegan hotels, yoga and home design lying around so you wont get bored.
The café serves sandwiches, brunch, avocado toast, cakes, salads and coffee. I had a tofu sandwich with avocado, tomatoes and coconut bacon and it was delish! Definitely go here after a long day of walking around and sightseeing to wind down.
Gammel Kongevej 171, 1850 Frederiksberg.
Vegan brunch! Do I need to say more?
The café is a little further away from the center of Copenhagen but it is so worth it! They serve brunch all day long and I was in awe of the menu. They seemed to have put a lot of thought into their dishes. I couldn't decide between the potato and cauliflower hash, buckwheat pancakes and banana bread french toast. In the end, I went for the pancakes. They came with a licorice infused berry compote which blew my mind away. If you don't like licorice - don't get it. If you like licorice - you'll love it!
I do have to say the portions where quite small with regard to the price (99 DKK for the pancakes) but the food was very tasty and it's something a little more fancy. I don't know if they do reservations but I would try to call ahead. It was quite busy when I went there (Sunday around noon) and I had to wait a little bit.
On the Go
Elmegade 30. Or Enghave Plads 10
They serve delicious banana and coconut based vegan icecream. They also focus on sustainability and the environment which I really liked. There are two Nicecream Copenhagen locations. The one in Enghave also serves nicecream bowls. Both serve nicecream scoops and nicecream sandwiches. You can also get a delivery straight to your door.
I went for a peanut butter nicecream bowl which was topped with chocolate, strawberries and hands down the best granola I've had. It was 79 DKK. In winter, you can also get warm bowls (October - March).
The location in Enghave is a 15 minute walk from Copenhagen central station. Although it isn't the most pleasant walk/area in the beginning, I encourage you to still walk the way! Half way, you will find a street Saxogade with a zero-waste supermarket LØS Market, a vegan grocery store Naturli and a beautiful plant store Plantula.
This bakery is located near Nørreport Station. It's actually almost opposite of Souls. They sell a lot of vegan baked goods which are all clearly labeled. You can have different kinds of bread, bread rolls, croissants, brownies, crisp bread and cinnamon buns. There's also a small grocery store inside where you can buy hummus, vegan cheese, plant-based milk and raw bars. It is a really tasty and budget-friendly option for breakfast or lunch.
