Last year after writing about the food scene being too noisy, I took a look around my own neighbourhood and saw that we could do with a bit more of that share of the ‘noise’ over in Østerbro. So I was delighted to hear about a new coffee shop opening up on Jagtvej close to Fælledparken (it has now been open over a year).
Cosy is definitely what Bitten, the women behind Gedigen, is going for. She is defining the place as somewhere for coffee and things. Everything in the place is vintage or up cycled. There are old games to play and all the tables and chairs are different. I particularly love the table she has covered with her stamp collection and the reclaimed counter which comes from an old købmand (grocers) shop.
Bitten’s speciality is cheesecake and it got the thumbs up from my son. I am delighted to have a new place to have cosy afternoons in and morning work sessions in a unique environment. It only opened this week but I hope it will become a popular spot in a neighbourhood rather lacking in decent coffee shops. Bitten is also selling handmade, up cycled materials and plants from Moster Molly, a local shop that I will be posting about next week, and artwork from a local artist, Sustaina Graphics. A great combination that fits perfectly with Gedigen.Address:Jagtvej 193, 2100 Copenhagen
