The best new gourmet bakeries in Copenhagen

Copenhagen abounds with new and delicious bakeries and what they all have in common is that the bakers have a connection to Noma. That tells you something about the quality.

It’s a long time since flimsy discount rolls and tasteless loaves were the standard fare at the capital’s bakeries. Over the past 10 years, bakery chains such as Meyers Bageri, Emmerys and Det Rene Brød have led a bread revolution that has turned good bread, made using organic flour, whole grains and sourdough, into everyday fare for Copenhageners. And the city’s bakers just keep on getting better. New bakeries are popping up all over the capital at the moment, with some of the top names on the Copenhagen food scene at the helm – here are four new gourmet bakeries where the bread and pastries are in a league of their own.

Juno the Bakery

Emil Glaser opened Juno the Bakery just under a year ago and ever since, the people of Østerbro have stood in long lines to get hold of the sought-after pastries made by the Swedish chef, who was formerly at Noma. His cardamom swirls in particular have achieved almost cult status, but his crunchy crisp croissants, sourdough bread and buns are also worth making a detour for. The bakery bakes bread all day using the best organic ingredients and generally sells out, but there are individual seats by the window, where you can enjoy your freshly baked purchase along with a coffee.

Hart Bageri

Englishman Richard Hart opened his new bakery less than a week ago, but good news travels fast, as they say, and the bakery is packed full of people on an ordinary morning. And with good reason. Because before opening his shop on Gammel Kongevej, Hart used to supply bread to Noma, and the quality is top notch. Great bread and the most delicious pastries, where you can taste all the good work that has gone into them. Don’t miss the almond croissant with caramelized almonds on top and a marzipan-like filling inside, or the special cinnamon roll with ham, which works surprisingly well. Enjoy them with a good coffee at one of the café tables or take them home for later.

Mirabelle

Chef Christian Puglisi was at Noma before he became known for Michelin-starred restaurant Relæ, Manfreds, Bæst and the Mirabelle bakery on Guldbergsgade. Mirabelle is a combination of bakery, café and diner that uses organic ingredients, many of which come from Puglisi’s own farm in Lejre. The flour for the sourdough bread is made using øland wheat from the Kornby Mølle mill and there’s always sourdough bread, buns, rye bread and croissants available, as well as the sweet pastries of the day to take home with you. If you’re lucky enough to find a seat, you can also enjoy your pastry there with a cup of coffee from The Coffee Collective.

Andersen & Maillard

Renowned pastry chef Milton Abel has previously worked at Michelin-starred restaurants The French Laundry in America and Noma and Amass in Copenhagen. Now he’s opened his own bakery and coffee roastery together with Hans Kristian Andersen from Copenhagen Coffee Lab and this is the place to go if you have a weakness for good coffee and sweet things. The locals discovered this some time ago and although the place at Nørrebro is spacious, every table is usually taken. You’ll get good coffee, of course, and panini with different fillings, croissants and swirls – but don’t miss the dessert cakes. They make all the difference.
