Copenhagen’s Treasures: Vegan places in the City
When people hear that I am vegan and that I don’t consume any animal products whatsoever, a common question after “what do you eat?” is typically “how do you eat out?“ Well, if you are looking for more than just a salad, some research is generally required. After doing some exploring and experimenting, I’ve come up with a quick list of 5 places in Copenhagen that covers any vegan food-related situation!
Naturbageriet is a super cute little bakery where you can find amazing baked goods that fit most dietary restrictions! The only downside to this place is that it is so tiny that they don’t have any seating. Not to worry; Torvehallerne is only a few blocks away where you can easily find a spot to enjoy your cake. Whether you are gluten-allergic, vegan or a ”normal” person, Naturbageriet is the perfect place to get that morning coffee and carb fix!
Address: Frederiksborggade 29, 1360 København k

Located in Christiania, Morgenstedet is the typical vegan ”hippie” café. After wandering through the heart of the Danish hippie central, you can’t help but expect to find some vegans! At Morgenstedet, you will only find food made with ”love” as everything here is 100% organic and plant-based. Here you can select a range of ingredients for your perfect salad or enjoy the soup of the day! Definitely student-budget approved!
Address: Fabriksområdet 134, 1440 København k

3) Green Sushi
A lot of people are surprised when I tell them that I love sushi! They can’t imagine that vegan sushi can consist of more than just cucumber and avocado. Green Sushi is the perfect place to prove that sushi for vegans is more than just vegetables and rice. With a separate vegan menu, vegans can enjoy equally (if not more) fancy sushi as the avid fish/meat eater.
Address: Grønnegade 28, 1107 København k

4) 42 Raw
You may have heard of the trendy raw vegan diet that seems to be all the rage in the health and fitness world. These people argue that eating food in its most natural form, meaning food that is not heated past 42 degrees Celsius in order to preserve the maximum amount of nutrients, is both healthy and delicious! While I am not ”raw vegan”, I can vouch that 42Raw proves their point. The dishes here are beautifully served and uniquely palate pleasing! Although a little pricier than the places listed above, it is not more expensive than the average Copenhagen restaurant.
Address: Pilestræde 32, 1112 København k

5) Max Burger
My list would be incomplete if I didn’t offer a place perfect for food at the end of a crazy night out in Copenhagen! And yes, vegans still party just as hard as the rest of you at CBS! At Max Burger, even vegans and those with a gluten-intolerance can get that late night drunken food fix. During my intro weeks this year, I became quite accustomed to ordering the Green Menu (”hold the sauce and the cheese but extra ketchup please!”).
Address: Gammeltorv 4, 1457 København k
See you at Max!
