Søfart Museum cafe


When we went away over the Christmas break we spent a day exploring the Kronborg Castle at Helsingør and the relatively new Maritime Museum of Denmark. I will probably be writing about this museum elsewhere on the internet but I thought I would share its amazing cafe today. You can go into the cafe without visiting the museum.

The cafe ( and indeed the museum itself ) is located in a building designed by BJarke Ingels Group and is situated in an old dry dock close to Kronborg Castle.

The cafe has rough cement walls which are the perfect backdrop to the stylish yet slightly Vikingesque decor with fur rugs, stylish candle holders and Arne Jacobsen letter cups on the coffee station. I love that museums here offer such fantastically well thought out and designed cafés rather than places that resemble food courts. In the summer there is a huge area outside for tables and chairs, it looks like a potential sun trap so I look forward to coming back in the summer.

The food was delicious, although not enormous portions. The cakes and coffees are well worth a pit stop.
