Brunch at Cafe Stella




















Being up at 4.30 AM, departure at 7.15, arriving in Copenhagen at 8.05 - without proper food. Hunger... This meant late breakfast or early lunch - add them together and you get Brunch, at Cafe Stella. Not the worst place to start a five day vacation in Copenhagen.

We had placed our luggage at Hotel Sct Thomas, took the 25 minute walk into the city centre, and started to look for a good place to get some grub. Cafe Stella is located in Kompagnistræde, a narrow street close to Strøget, the famous pedestrian shopping street crossing the city centre.

We were tempted by Stella's lunch at DKK 85. What did you get for this symbolic sum? A large brunch plate with scrambled eggs, bacon, small sausages, Spanish chorizo, brie, tuna salad, cheese, jam, yogurt with muesli, and finally pancakes with maple syrup. Two slices of Danish rye bread and a focaccia. I ordered a caffe latte and a large glass of orange juice (not included).

If that isn't a breakfast for champions, what is.....?

It was a terrific brunch and all on this smorgasbord tasted great. In fact there was so much, I did not manage to eat the pancakes - or to be quite honest, I did not really care, as it would have been too much.

Breakfast at Stella is highly recommended. This is a substantial meal that will keep you going for hours, time you may use on some retail therapy, or just roam around in cool Copenhagen.
