Places to Visit: The Royal Café, Copenhagen
The Royal Café / The Royal Smushi Café
1160 Copenhagen K
When I was in Copenhagen in March I visited The Royal Café / The Royal Smushi Café, next to The Royal Copenhagen shop. It is a beautiful place where the interior and environment feels like a mix of historical eras and modern city life.
The café includes designs, furniture, porcelain, textiles and so on, from Royal Copenhagen as well as other Danish designers like Fritz Hansen, Kvadrat, Holmegaard, Georg Jensen and more.
The café has a chic, modern and elegant feel to it, with its big windows, high ceiling, pink walls, white tiles floor, long tables, mirrors, big historical paintings, flower illustrations on the wall and still life in little glass boxes here and there. The interior style is playful and humourous with its mix of many historical interior styles that go from Baroque to today.
When I was there I got the feeling that it was a place full of life and pulse - the essence feeling of a trendy café in a modern big city. Everything was served on beautiful porcelain and I especially recommend their chocolate cake with walnuts and rose petals. It was delicious!
