Weekend trip to Copenhagen – R&C’s recommendations

Rose&Clementine went to the pretty and cold Copenhagen a few times and is happy to share its favourite addresses with you.

But be prepared! Everything in Denmark is very expensive, from food to hotels, transportation, etc. So, you need to keep that information in mind before you get there.

The Square Hotel
The Square hotel is very well located on the main square of the city which is called Radhuspladsen. It is very convenient to visit the city and go out at night. Also, you are never too far from your warm bedroom when you are feeling too cold outside and dream about warmth and cosiness! It is clean, modern, nice and simple. The address is Radhuspladsen 14.

Copenhagen Island
Less central but very modern and nice hotel. Rooms are more spacious than at the Square and the hotel offers the convenience of a good quality on-site restaurant. The hotel is located by the river Syndhavnen so you might get a nice open view on it from your room. The only negative side is that the staff at the reception can be unpleasant. But Rose&Clementine might have been unlucky.  Adress: Kalvebod Brygge 53

Sankt Gertruds Kloster
There is a very nice restaurant that R&C would like to recommend for a very nice dinner out. It is located in the center, at walking distance to Radhuspladsen. It is a beautiful 14th century cloister lit by thousands of candles and as most of the rooms are underground the candle light gives a nice intimate and secretive atmosphere. Perfect for a romantic evening.

The food is very good. It is a mix of Danish and international cuisine.  It is a bit expensive but it is worth the experience. Do not forget to book a table.  Address: Hauser Plads 32

The Royal Cafe
Nice fashionable and kitsch restaurant perfect for lunch in the middle of a day of shopping. Try on the super fashionable Danish Smushis! They basically are mini portions of a dish, perfect to try on several dishes. Tasty and modern food, nice cosy place. You will love going there with your girlfriends. It is located on a main shopping pedestrian street. Address: Amargertorv 6.

Chili Milli
Nice and cheap deli take-away but with tables where you can have a quick lunch for example. It offers tasty and freshly cooked dishes. It is a chain and you can find Chili Milli on several locations in the center and one of them is Radhusplatsen.

La Galette
Little French creperie for a lunch break. Very tiny, quite good and cheap (for CPH but all is relative). Adress: Larsbjørnsstræde 9

Agnes cupcakes
The best cupcakes R&C ever tried! A paradise for the sweet toothed ones. You can sit down for an afternoon coffee and sweets. Clever rec: go for the mini cupcakes, you can try more flavours!. It is very central and located in the Nørreport area which is between Radhusplatsen and Nyhavn. R&C spotted a website that mentions it: A must! The address is Sværtegade 2.

Obviously… But you need to book a long while in advance. Check out the Rose&Clementine post on this restaurant.

Nice walks and shopping

The emblematic little harbour of Nyhavn is a must see in the city. It is the cutest area of Copenhagen both in day time to see the warm colours of the buildings and at night because it is well lit with taste.

Nyhavn- Photo credits R&C

Get lost on purpose in the charming little streets between Radhuspladsen and Nyhavn. This area is called Nørreport. The beautiful and colourful old buildings in these streets really are another must see. And, if you like vintage clothing, that is where you want to go shopping! R&C always starts at the second hand KBH.K shop on Studiestraede 32B and walk around the area. There are lots of vintage shops around there and some of them are actually cheap! In the same area, make sure you visit the pedestrian shopping streets Strøget and Købmagergade with many small boutiques and the two malls Illum and Magasin.

If you are not too cold, get out of the wind protected city center and dare to walk to the Little Mermaid. The statue is very little but so emblematic of the country! And once you are there, go and visit the castle.

The Statens Museum for Kunst is a museum R&C visited a few months ago (Sølvgade 48, 1307, Denmark). It offers both temporary and permanent expositions. A temporary expo that R&C liked was the Modern Art show on European artists. On the other hand, the permanent exposition was very dense although interesting. The walls were packed with paintings the ones above the others, sometimes 3 or 4 on one row, but the retrospective on art evolution over the centuries is remarkable.

A fresh tabouleh recipe

Ok, so Summer is coming to an end. But here is a recipe that is going to take you back to the warm night picnics you had a few weeks ago, somewhere on the grass, a bridge or on a beach.

This is a very fresh lemony tabouleh recipe. Perfect for an evening of watching Summer pictures for example.

It is extremely easy and fast to make but it needs to stay in the fridge for 6 hours minimum. It usually tastes even better the day after.


Rose&Clementine’s favourite tabouleh recipe.

For 4/5 people


200g semolina (cuscus grain)

400g cucumber

100g onions

500g branch tomatoes

3 large lemons

20g fresh mint

Virgin olive oil



  • Pour the semolina in a large bowl. Cut the cucumber, onions and tomatoes in small pieces. Add this mixture onto the semolina and mix.
  • Press the lemon juice and pour it on the semolina mix. Mix thoroughly.
  • Cover the bowl with cling film and place it in the fridge for 6 hours.
  •  Half an hour before serving it, pour slowly a small quantity of olive oil evenly on the dish. Mix. Add salt. Mix.
