Porridge in Jægersborggade

If you are cold in the harsh Scandinavian winter, GRØD (which means porridge) in Jægersborggade is the place to go. They serve all kinds of porridge, including risotto and congee. The only other dish you can get is a small fresh salat which is only 25 DKK, but it is meant as a side order. This might be necessary if you are very hungry, because the portions are not that big.

Even if you're not that into porridge, you should consider giving it a try. You can have breakfast, lunch and even dinner as the menu changes from day to evening.

The owners make sure the ingredients are seasonal. So right now, in February, you can warm yourself on for example a hot pot of risotto with Jerusalem artichokes, or in the morning just a good old-fashioned oatmeal porridge with apples and nuts or caramel sauce.

The small cafe opens at 7:30 am on weekdays and the cafe has newspapers and magazines to read while you enjoy your meal.

Porridge mixes if you want to make it yourself.

You can buy different kinds of oats and grain mixes at the café. That way you can cook up your own little pot of joy at home.

The menu is only in Danish, but the lovely staff will surely translate it for you. The prices range from 25 DKK for the salad or a dessert porridge, 30 DKK for breakfast and 50-60 DKK for dinner.

The interior is nice and simple in a very Scandinavian way. The café doesn't have too many seats, but it makes the atmosphere warm and "hyggelig".

Hot congee with chicken, ginger and peanuts.

Risotto with Jerusalem artichoke and parmesan cheese.

When in Jægerborggade you should definitely check out all the other small shops in the street with everything from delicate food and pastries to clothes, pottery and music. Jægersborggade is Copenhagen's no. 1 hipster street in this upcoming part of Nørrebro, so expect lots of Ray Ban sunglasses and oversize clothing mixed with a friendly atmosphere and definitely room for everyone.

In one end of Jærgersborggade you'll find the charming cemetery Assistens Kirkegården, where you can find the graves of legends such as H.C. Andersen and Søren Kierkegaard. At the other end of the street you can turn the corner and head down Stefansgade, another street with lots of nice cafés and shops popping up at the moment.

Also, you should take a walk in Nørrebroparken, the park nearby, which is about to be renovated and even nicer and greener.
