La Glace

Your crazy day of shopping in town got you exhausted? To regain strength in the afternoon, discover La Glace. This "konditori" (tea room) installed in a semi-basement is - apparently - the oldest in Copenhagen (1870).

In addition to a selection of seasonal lagkage, the place offers a great choice of pastries, macaroons, kransekage, chocolates, and good beverages.

Here you order at the counter (and there is sometimes a very long waiting line, as the place is really famous) and then you are served at table, but do not expect to find one easily if you arrive after 4pm! The tea room is stormed by a crowd of Danish and foreign customers, attracted by the reputation of the place or by the sight of the cakes on display.

A classic: lagkage + hot chocolate with homemade whipped cream... Hello calories!

Lagkage 42 kroner the slice. Delicious but do not imagine eating two without a prior intense physical preparation.
Despite its old age, this is a modern konditori: the assortment of cakes is available on their website (in Danish and English)!
Skoubogade 3, very close to Strøget.
