Home of the world’s best restaurant “Noma”, Copenhagen also offers many child-friendly cafes and restaurants. The markets and typical hot dog stands dotted around the city might be fun to try too.
At BabyBreaks, we have researched the best family restaurants in Copenhagen, so you can plan your mealtimes around the city.
Also take a look at our selection of activities in Copenhagen for the perfect stay.
1. The Laundromat
One of the most family friendly places to eat in Copenhagen, this retro style café has a unique concept. Yes it IS a real laundromat where you can take your laundry if you want to and retreat to the café to eat, read or play some games whilst waiting. But washing is Not a requirement and it is mostly a fun diner where the whole family can enjoy some good food, their brunch is especially good, and the kids can run freely.
There are three branches across the city, two of them are more kid friendly with a dedicated play area (Østerbro and Frederiksberg). You’ll also find free Wi-Fi, books and magazine in all 3 spots.

If you like grazing and delicious flavours, head to this buzzing food market where you’ll find everything from smoked meat to the traditional Danish smørrebrød, fresh pasta and hand-brewed coffee for the grown-ups.
The kids will love all the different colours and smells and the idea of picking a variety of yummy treats. Tables are dotted around the main markets but there are also small restaurants serving food.

In other words, “Sausage Wagon”! The famous Danish hot dog is a sure winner with most kids.
A cultural institution, you can find stands all over the city selling those delicious sausages wrapped in soft bread and accompanied with scrummy toppings. Although it is street food, the sausages and other ingredients are known to be impeccable. You can even find organic (Den Økologiske Pølsemand) and gourmet (Pølse Kompagniet) ones.
Go Danish style and stop for one on the go.
Address: Look for the mobile vans across the city
The cookies and cakes in this cafe look so beautiful the kids won’t know which one to choose. But they don’t only look good, they are mouthwatering tasty.
Leckerbaer bakes daily all its little fresh-from-the-oven masterpieces in its own small pastry kitchen. You can take them to go or enjoy them with a hot drink on the stools by the window or in the cosy room in the back.
