I can’t go to Copenhagen without at least one breakfast at Grød, the world’s first porridge bar on the Jægersborggade, in the Nørrebro-district of Copenhagen. I love their porridge so much, I even order it from time to time to be delivered to Belgium. Since we were about to head to Hamburg, a filling, healthy brunch at Grød was a perfect way to leave the city!
Day four in Copenhagen, we decided to spend some more time exploring the shops on the Jægersborggade. We were lucky that we chose to do this on a Saturday because some of the shops are only open a few days a week. The morning started again at Grød for breakfast, followed by visiting Kaktus, a store that sells – you guess it – only cacti. We couldn’t help revisiting Karamelleriet, where the caramels are made by hand and were so delicious that we ate all of ours before we even were back in Belgium. After a few caramel tastings – they let you sample the fresh made goodies – we visited Habengut, a traditional woodwork shop, by Søren Ulrich. All of the pieces are made by hand and we bought two tealight holders and a salt dish to bring back home. Our last stop was at Crate, a store specializing in beer and vinyl. We purchased a few Danish beers to try that evening.
Breakfast at Grød – spelt grød with blueberries, hazelnuts, and cacao nibs and oat grød with apples, almonds, and caramel sauce
Our second full day in Copenhagen began with breakfast at Grød, a café on the Jægersborggade that only sells grød – a type of Danish porridge. The grød was so delicious we had to go back for more later in the trip!
