Nowadays there usually is a chain-coffee shop at every possible corner of Copenhagen. They make ok coffee, and there’s basically nothing wrong with them, but I just tend to think they lack purpose. Café Retro is the exact opposite to those, and there’s the charm to it.
Café Retro (in Knabrostræde in Inner city and Jægersborggade, Nørrebro (in the picture)) is two non-profit cafe’s serving great coffee, beer and beverages, and they even have something little to eat. All the profit goes to India and Africa, where Retro has specific targets they are supporting (read more on their webpage).
The atmosphere in both of the cafes is really relaxed; lean chairs, hammock chairs, old-style wooden furniture and cushions (you get a feeling of a hippie-grandma’s living room), in Nørrebro part of the walls are covered with old Donald Duck-comics and one has a photo exhibition on it.
The city-Retro also has live music Fri – Sun at 21:00. One more great thing about Retro: the prices. Not even the backpacking students can say its too expensive! Seriously the best Chai Latte in the city, and for 30kr!
