Café Halvvejen

Top choice Danish

in Strøget & the Latin Quarter

Cosy, creaky, wood-panelled Café Halvvejen channels a fast-fading Copenhagen. The menu is unapologetically hearty, generous and cheap for this part of town, with faithful open sandwiches, frikadeller (Danish meatballs) and pariserbøf (minced beef steak with egg and onions). The deceptively named miniplatte offers a satisfying overview of classic Nordic flavours. Whatever you choose, wash it down with a (very generous) shot of akvavit.

Café Halvvejen has just a handful of tables (book or go early) and the kitchen is only open between noon and 3pm.
