For a cool breakfast in Copenhagen head to Nørrebro. Situated on the foodie/hipster strip of Jægersborggade, a couple of scheming youngsters have opened up Grøt, a cheap and cheerful joint devoted to traditional – and not so traditional – Nordic porridge. If you can set your anti-gruel prejuidices aside, you can expect delicious toppings and alternative grains that will keep you powered up against the Danish winter.

Also in the hood is the rustic Nordisk Brødhus – one of the city’s best bakeries where everything is made on the premises in a great, hunking, old-school oven. Head there for hearty baked treats (and perhaps a perfectly boiled egg).

Feeling like a dirty stop out? Take your bed hair and hang-over to Bodega, a hipster brunch spot that turns into a restaurant at night and bar with DJs on the weekend, so it can cater to your needs regardless of when you roll out of the sheets.

For a posh brunch of the civilised ilk the organic Glyptotek cafe situated in the winter garden at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek Museum is reputed to be one of the city’s best though you’ll have to pay the museum admission charge to go in (nb:  entry is free on Sunday), they also do a killer afternoon tea.
