In spite of the rather wild interior (which puts itself somewhere between beautiful, cozy and über kitsch), this cafe is easily overlooked. I only came across it by chance, because I can’t resist open gates to backyards – I have to peek – and in this case I’m overly happy I did, because in this particular courtyard, in the rear building, lies Øko Café 32.
This isn’t an ordinary restaurant. The Café is connected to The Organic Production School and is run on a daily basis by students from the school, aged between 16 and 24, who want to learn more about operating, servicing and cooking based on an organic perspective (Øko = organic).
The menu is small and changes every day: dish of the day and soup of the day, and the dish of the day always comes in a vegetarian version too. In addition to this you can buy breakfast, sandwiches, cake, coffee, tea and non-alcoholic beverages.
The food isn’t fancy, but it tastes really good, it’s healthy, organic and cheap.
The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, and it feels a little like eating at home, except that you don’t have to cook or do the dishes. Every Thursday Øko Café 32 and Copenhagen Food Community arranges soup kitchen from 17:30 – 19:00 and everybody is welcome.
Opening times vary, so it is recommended to check their website.
