Once-gritty Jægersborggade, a cobblestoned thoroughfare in Copenhagen’s Nørrebro district, has been transformed by locals selling everything from house-made candy to flea-market treasures.
Arrive early at the compact café Meyers Bageri, owned by a cofounder of Noma (S. Pellegrino’s best restaurant in the world for 2011). The pumpkinseed rye bread and cinnamon buns made with organic Nordic flour often sell out by 9 a.m. No. 9; 45/3918-6900; breakfast for two $15.
Coffee Collective brews a clean cuppa using direct-trade beans from the developing world that are hand-roasted on site. Learn DIY techniques during one of its monthly courses. Coffee for two $6.
Mademoistella owner Stella Malfilatre scours flea markets outside of town for vintage women’s clothes such as 1960’s-style knitted vests and embroidered hippie blouses from the seventies. No. 52; 45/5357-5996.
Chef Christian F. Puglisi, another Noma alum, recently opened the basement restaurant Relæ, with two menus—one vegetarian, the other for omnivores—that focus on seasonal ingredients. No. 41; 45/3696-6609; dinner for two $152.
Former pop icon Charlotte Vigel (a.k.a. Tiggy) and friend Tina Ipsen opened Karamelleríet, where they produce hard and soft caramels in many flavors (licorice, mint, cinnamon) in an old-fashioned copper pot.
The multimedia gallery CMYK Kld is decorated floor-to-ceiling with works by emerging Danish artists—all available as affordable prints. There’s also a tiny stage for local performers. No. 51; 45/2162-9563.
