    Kanal Cafeen: Try Danish Smørrebrød

    If you want to try Danish "Smørrebrød" open sanwiches, this is a good place to try it.
    So how do they make smørrebrød?
    They take a slice of dark rye bred and put butter on - then they make a big decoration of fish, meat or cheese on the bread with salad, vegetables etc. - have a look at the photo.

    It's a very cosy place where many Danes go to have their lunch.
    The Café was founded in 1852 and it is said that the first owner was Alphonse Cassabadan the chef of King Christian VIII. It used to be a place where women were not allowed to come, but today they are most welcome.
    Opening hours: weekdays from 11:30 to 19:00 and Saturday: 10:30 to 16:00

    Unfortunately the website is only in Danish.

    Favorite Dish: I was there today (March 22nd 2007) and had number 7 on the menu: rye bread with fried plaice (still warm), shrimps, asparagus and lemon. It was very good, and I had a lot to eat for about 11-12 $

    Kanal Cafeen: For an authentic and cheap Danish meal

    This is a purely Danish restaurant and inside is cozy and warm. The food is served in the open face sandwich style and there is plenty of beer to go along with it.

    Favorite Dish: I had a selection of a local fish that was slightly pickled or cooked lightly and it was served with rye bread and some salad. It was filling and delicious. The price is cheaper than you'd expect. Luckily the menu comes in 4 lanuages.

    Open: Mon- Fri 11:30 to 19:00 and Saturday 10:30 - 16:00
