Kaffekilden is located in a rather uncharming place, right on the corner of one of the main roads going through Nørrebro. But once you step inside, you don’t think about roads or the buzz outside.
Kaffekilden is built in solid wood with comfy, old school furniture. When you approach the counter you get the feeling you’re going into someone’s apartment. The café is divided into three rooms, which gives you the opportunity to buy your (very reasonable priced) coffee or chai, to either sit in the main room with the dots of students with macbooks and hour old coffee, or go to the back and sit down with a view of the yard or the smaller street. If you’re lucky and the sun is out, pull a backgammon game out in front and sit in the shade.
Written on the walls is the history of coffee’s way into the Danes’ life and they sell their own special blend – which you can top off with one of their 8 (!!) different cheesecakes.
Because of the location, people tend to linger a bit longer and the speed in here is toned down three notches from the normal Copenhagen pace.
Kaffekilden has done the impossible and created a different kind of café in a sea of places to get your caffeine fix.
