CFW/Boozt Postcard: Blogger Mie Kirstine Quist

Personal Copenhagen guides in collaboration with Boozt

In collaboration with Boozt, Copenhagen Fashion Week has asked a handful of cool "Copenhageners" about their favorites places to go in the city. 

Danish blogger Mie Kirstine Quist has a big love for Copenhagen. Read her suggestions on where to eat, drink and shop and get to know about her best hidden Copenhagen gem.

 A perfect day in Copenhagen consists of: 

A morning run around the lakes, including a quick stop at the beautiful garden of The National Gallery. Then a quick breakfast on my balcony while listening to a good podcast and catching up on e-mails. For lunch I meet up with a few friends in Torvehallerne and on my way home I’ll buy fresh flowers. 

At night I meet up with my friends again and we’ll have a glass of wine Arrebo - a cosy and small cafe located at “Den sorte plads” in Nørrebro. Later we’ll bike to Tribaca NV - a pretty amazing Italian restaurant, located in a cool industrial building. We’ll have dinner in their beautiful garden and stay until the sun sets.

The most delicious meal I’ve ever eaten in Copenhagen was at…

Mangal - a turkish restaurant in the meatpacking district. Their mezze plates are the best I’ve ever had. 

Where do you go for drinks?

BRUS on Guldbergsgade. The interior kind of makes you feel  at home, which is pretty good doing winter. On summer days you can sit outside on the benches and the vibe there is quite unique.

Tell us about your favourite hidden Copenhagen gem:

One thing that I keep telling my friends about, is a big bazar located on Lygten. It’s called “Lygtens Bazar” and they sell all the greens, fruits, nuts, spices and dips that you could imagine and everything is so cheap that it’s hard to believe. 

Favourite store?

For Hightstreet I always go for & Other Stories. For the delicate items I go to Another Nuè. The store is so beautiful and it’s almost impossible to leave it without buying anything. 

Going for breakfast in Copenhagen, what will you recommend? 

There are so many new and amazing places opening all the time, so it’s hard to say just one. But one that you can always count on is Møllers Kaffe on Nørrebrogade. You can orde a bunch of different small dishes and there’re all so delicious and tasty. 

What’s your favorite neighborhood? And why? 

Nørrebro, where I live. You have everything here and the diversity is pretty amazing. You get a little from so many different cultures and the vibe is so cool.
