This place is a bit off the beaten path but it's a nice little cafe on the water. The service was a bit surly and I got the feeling they weren't in the mood to speak English (the English menus were kept very hidden away) but it all worked out. The burger was massive, drowning in mayo, and a bit... More

It is a cult place in my family. We meet there for B-days and other special occasions. The tradition calls for weekend brunch and coffee. Wine at very special events. They have a new cook/chef and everything is served in beautiful manner. Decorative, tasty and plenty. I had and vegetarian omelette and it was terrific. At warmer weather we can... More

A very cosy place with good food, friendly personnel, decent prices and one of the best chocolate and walnut cakes in the area. The view is very nice as well.

Just popped in whilst out for a Sunday walk round the lakes. Sat outside in the crisp afternoon sun with my wife, 2 beers & lovely view. Haven't eaten anything here as yet though can recommend for a cozy beer on a lazy day 🍻🇩🇰👏👏

If you like to watch people walking by, while looking at the lakes and birds, while enjoying a nice brunch buffet, with a good variety of hot dishes and salads, including fried and scrambled eggs, sausages, tomato salad and two kinds of salmon, with fresh orange juice and coffee/tea on the side, "Den Franske Cafè" is highly recommendable.

Well, you can enjoy the lovely spot in Copenhagen with a cup coffee or a beer, but stop there. First up, you'll have to "pay" for the location, and don't get the value in the cuisine... unfortunately, but the waiters try to do the best they can, so once again, it is a great pit-stop on the way to another...

I was there in the daytime. The staff was clearly annoyed by the fact that they had work to do. The room was cluttered with things things like empty beer boxes and litter that nobody seemed to care much about. The food was reasonable, but just that. This place isn't worth visiting.

As I was due to run the Copenhagen Marathon the next day, we were looking for somewhere to have a pasta dinner. We walked past this cafe which is right next to one of the city centre lakes and not far from a main road. As it was fair weather we decided to sit outside - the tables are under... More

Good location to have coffee overlooking the lake (and metro construction works at the moment). Staff is friendly although inexperienced it seems. Prices ok.
