Cute cafe with a library kind of vibe. It's a little off the beaten path - which is really nice. Just get the Veggie Brunch Platter....it's delicious!!!

This cafe was recommended online for that warm & fuzzy Danish-ness we’re all looking for, and it was very cosy. The cheese platter was delicious, the red wine was decent and the bookshelves made for some lovely photos. It’s next door to the university library and there were plenty of students there. You could get board games from the bar which is a big plus in my book. As has been alluded to below, the books are mostly for show but we left very happy.

Paludan is a very popular café, especially amongst foreigners, and the location and interior is also really nice, but having been here several times, the lack of services is honestly what keeps me from coming back. Several times I've seen 5 waiters behind the counter, one taking orders and 4 talking and ignoring the customers. Super rude and a waste of time. Sad, since the food is quite good, but I won't be coming back.

Wonderful place with very good and affordable and delicious fresh food. You can read, eat and drink at the same place and time. I would live here if I could. :-)

With high expectation of this “cafe / library”, I was a bit disappointed that no one is allowed to touch the books, or ask someone to temporary borrow one. The atmosphere was terrific and relaxing. Smoothies are fantastic here. For the price, food was good, though my steamed plaice was not properly cooked that I had to rid this raw and chewy fascia. Perhaps I’ll catch a better day here in the near future.
