Where to eat in Copenhagen - Copenhagen Street Food

We were only in Copenhagen for 4 days, but boy did we have some really good food! Copenhagen is an expensive city, very comparable to Switzerland, but the quality of food for the price was much better. I only wish we had more time to do more eating! Here are a few of our suggestions on where to eat in Copenhagen: We ate here twice during our stay and we honestly could have eaten every … Read More
