CFW Postcard: Kafeteria

When food and art meet

The Copenhagen based chef Frederik Bille Brahe is already well-known for his way around the Copenhagen culinary scene; many have made their way to his  popular cafés Apollo Bar & Kantine, not to mention café Atelier September that recently got elected by the British magazine Mr Porter as one of the seven best breakfast places in the world.

Now the hyped food-maker is back, this time in a rather different setting.

Together with chef Jakob Kjær, Frederik Bille Brahe has deloved the new café Kaferia, situated in the entrance hall of The National Gallery of Denmark (SMK – Statens Museum for Kunst). Kafeteria specializes in organically grown quality ingredients and seasonal produce. All cakes and breads are made on the spot in the café’s own bakery, and you'll find a large selection of home-made cakes and freshly baked bread. Try the lemon pie or the pistachio meringue that will make your cake loving heart skip a beat. Kafeteria also serves a selection of dishes and different beverages.

Kafeteria wishes to build a bridge between food and art. The café is designed in collaboration with the Danish/Vietnamese artist Danh Vo, currently exhibiting at the Guggenheim in New York City and coming to The National Gallery of Denmark this fall. In Kafeteria you'll find funiture by various Danish and international designers. The characteristic lamps are by Isamu Noguchi. 

The café is located right inside the main entrance of the museum; no ticket is required to visit the café. However, now you're there we suggest you take a walk around the impressive museum as well. You won't regret it.
