Broens Gadekøkken (Bridge Street Kitchen), Copenhagen

Broens Gadekøkken is basically a mini Reffen, a street food market. It’s smack dab in one of the nicest areas to stroll around in the city centre – a short distance past Nyhavn and right across the bridge from The Playhouse. As it so happens it’s walking distance from my workplace as well. All I need to do is get out of my building and walk in a straight line down the road. Working in the heart of the city makes it almost too easy to get distracted by vibrant places like this, especially on a sunny day!

The food I tried was pretty good, though there aren’t as many options as you’d find in Reffen – so I suggest you do your research on the various stalls before going. It’s definitely a nice place to stop over for a quick lunch or refreshments, and I look forward to trying out a few more stalls when the city gets sunny again.

What lovely views crossing over the bridge to the street food market!
The stalls are bright and colourful.
Hygge.
Dumplings for appetiser.
Greek-style veggie pita for my main. I think having experienced cheap fresh Greek food in Greece spoiled me. This is the problem with trying new food in Denmark – I keep comparing to food I’ve had for cheaper and fresher elsewhere!
Coconut-based vegan ice cream from Nicecream – everyone I know who’s tried this place, vegan or not, speaks highly of this place.
You face some nice canal and harbour views from the market…
…like so.
There seem to be other venues worthy of a visit nearby too.

  1. This looks great. A friend of mine lives in Austria and a vegan ice cream shop opened in her local city. That was maybe two years ago and now they have four locations. Who knew this would be such a hit. Do you notice a difference compared to regular ice cream?

  2. The Corner is good for coffee and pastry in the morning. I love Broen for quick stop for food and good alternatives for tourists who don’t want to spend fortunes on mediocres food at Nyhavn. Broen and Reffen were ”replacement” for the big street food market at Papirøen now renovated for the giant swimming hall, but both markets thrives. Have you tried Bolton Food Court? That’s also cosy in the summer time where you can sit in the garden.
