Seven places to eat in Copenhagen with kids


Noma put Copenhagen firmly on the map for foodies, repeatedly named the best restaurant in the world – but while you could take your kids along there with you, that’s far from the only option if you’re looking for the best places to eat in Copenhagen with kids.

From classic Scandinavian to child-friendly burgers, I’ve picked out seven great markets and restaurants in Copenhagen for families, which are also a lot more budget-friendly than a Michelin-starred restaurant!

From street food to quirky places to eat in the Danish capital, these are my top tips for Copenhagen food with kids.

Copenhagen food markets with kids

Torvehallerne food market

With stall after stall of food and handy tables dotted around Copenhagen’s main market, you can graze on everything from traditional smorrebrod and pastries to sushi and chocolate plus wine and coffee for the grown-ups at Torvehallerne food market.

Don’t miss the kanel snegle, or cinnamon snails (calling them cinnamon rolls simply doesn’t have the same ring).

Reffen

Reffen’s street food market is home to more than 50 start ups with a focus on sustainability, organic food and reducing waste, all with waterside views.

There’s an old machine hall for the colder months when eating outside isn’t quite so tempting and the hop-on hop-off bus drops you nearby. For the latest line-up, check out Reffen’s website.

Family friendly restaurants in Copenhagen

Cocks & Cows

Long communal tables where as many hip 20-something Danes as family groups hang out, Cocks and Cows is perfect for sophisticated kids and teens.

With burger after burger (and more than a few cocktails), the menu’s going to appeal to pretty much everyone. Portions are enormous, even if you have the Classic Cow rather than the Governator, and babies are made just as welcome as their big siblings.

Sporvejen

Another great burger joint, Sporvejen is set in a restaurant fitted out like an old-fashioned tram, dinging bell and all.

The menu has a few unusual twists too, including a curry burger with caviar and a garlic burger with clams. If you miss out on one of coveted inside booths, there’s tables on the square outside (and extra blankets to borrow).

Hooked

Hooked bills itself as casual seafood so you can expect fish and chips for kids, as well as poke bowls and fish burgers if you fancy something a bit different.

There’s a kid’s menu too, and eight different locations around Copenhagen, including the city centre and Norrebro.

Den Økologiske Pølsemand

The Danes love a hotdog – and that means they take them very seriously. And Døp, has been voted Copenhagen’s best thanks to organic ingredients and sourdough bread, as well as quirky choices like goat sausages.

Even the packaging is environmentally friendly. You can track him down near the Round Tower and the Church of the Holy Ghost, open to 6.30pm.

Seaside Toldboden

This harbourfront collection of places to eat, Seaside Toldboden is a short walk from the Little Mermaid so perfect for a post-photo pick-me-up, taking over from the previous Toldboden restaurant.

Perfect for families, as there’s something for everyone, the seven different independent kitchens provide everything from pasta and smorrebrod to Japanese gyoza, Argentinian tapas and lobster rolls, with plenty of veggie dishes, fresh fish and seasonal ingredients.

Sister Restaurant Julian, formerly in the National Museum, which had menus inspired by the museum’s exhibitions, has also now closed but Restaurant Karla nearby has child-friendly Danish dishes on the menu
