Around the corner from touristy Nyhavn is cognoscenti Union Kitchen, where inked staffers look like punk-pop rockers, the palette is grey on grey, and the clipboard menu is packed with quality, brunch-friendly grub, from yoghurt and granola to burgers and seasonal salads. Top choices include waffles and the 'Balls of the Day', the latter a combo of succulent homemade meatballs served with interesting sides.
It also pours decent cocktails, made with craft spirits. Note that the kitchen closes at 10pm Monday to Saturday.
