Take-out in a tipi

Verdenshjørnet is next to Nørrebro Station and serves street food with a child-friendly angle. Choose whatever you fancy from the range of food trucks and then either eat outside or take a seat in the large tipi, where you can also buy drinks. The atmosphere inside is relaxed and unpretentious, with evocative lighting, great music and space to explore.

Greasy Spoon Diner

Sometimes you just feel like a burger with crispy fries and a milkshake, preferably somewhere with a little more charm than the standard burger chains. That’s exactly what you get at this cozy 1950s diner in the city center, which also serves breakfast, steaks and salads. Kids love the little slider burgers and the delicious milkshakes with whipped cream, cherries and candy-stripe straws.

Communal dining at Absalon

Absalon is Vesterbro’s hip cultural center, housed in a former church. It offers everything from yoga, sewing circles, chess and movie nights to table tennis, coffee and communal dining. Every evening at 6pm you can experience communal dining for DKr50 – and children under 5 eat free. You just need to show up at 5pm to buy a ticket and then enjoy the wonderful atmosphere, great food and good company for adults and children alike. Bonus: There’s a fantastic playground in Skydebanehaven just a few blocks away.

Mormors – Grandma’s house

Come on home to grandma’s house, complete with knick-knacks, embroidered cushions and decorative lamps. It always feels like a Sunday at Mormors, with its delicious home-baked goodies, sandwiches, hot cocoa (with extra whipped cream) and good coffee. There’s a warm welcome for young and old alike and they don’t skimp on anything – we’re at grandma’s after all! Bonus: Close to Amalienborg Palace and The Little Mermaid statue.

Sporvejen

Most children love a trip back in time and at the Sporvejen heritage tram car in the heart of Copenhagen they can eat their fill of burgers, potato wedges and omelets in a unique atmosphere. There are crayons and tram picture books for the little ones to color in while they’re waiting.

Enigma Kantina

Copenhagen’s new communications museum officially opens in 2018, but its restaurant, design market and post office are already open now. Enigma’s Kantina is run in collaboration with Meyers and serves well-prepared sharing food you can eat together at the long tables, as well as brunch, cakes and children’s dish of the day. Bonus: Fælledparken, home to Copenhagen’s best playgrounds, is just round the back.
