A vegan guide to Copenhagen

Copenhagen is full with vegan friendly restaurants, and every year the range is improving. Here are some real gems worth visiting next time you’re in Copenhagen.


My absolute favorite tip for foodies in Copenhagen is a visit to the Copenhagen Street Food market, a type of food court open from Thursday to Sunday every week. Here you can find food stalls serving cuisine from all over the world, and one of the best places for vegans is Madenitaly. This place serves vegetarian (and lots of vegan) pizza slices with a perfect pizza dough and interesting toppings like cashew cream and fresh veggies, proper Italian style. A slice costs about 55 dkr.

Address: Trangravsvej 14

Falafel factory

The entire Norrebrogade is packed with falafel places, and Falafel Factory is among the most vegan friendly, dishing up fresh falafel in different flavours and with different sauces. Great take-away food!

Address: Nørrebrogade 63


This place is most known for its vegan brunch. The restaurant isn’t vegetarian, but they have some really tasty and popular vegan dishes on their menu.

Address: Vendersgade 16, Nansengade (Frederiksborggade)

Ma’ed Ethiopian restaurant

This Ethipoian restaurant may not look like much, but the food is amazing, and good value too (59kr for lunch, with free refills)! Here you can enjoy traditional Ethiopian stews on injeera, served from a big plate that you and your friends share together (according to tradition). A wonderful experience!

Address: Griffenfeldsgade 7

Green Burger

This fast food joint is 100% vegan, serving vegan burgers and fries in a nice fresh venue to hungry guests every day between 11am to 10pm. A menu with fries (you can even order sweet potato fries) and a drink costs about 99kr.

Address: Frederiksborggade 26

Café N

Café N recently went from being vegan friendly to becoming fully vegan, which means that you can eat anything on their menu! Brunch, lunch, cakes, dinners and desserts, everything is vegan and home made. If you plan to arrive after 8pm it’s a good idea to book a table as it’s quite popular.

Address: Blågårdsgade 17

Simple Raw

Simple Raw is one of the most popular vegan restaurants in Copenhagen, and for  good reasons! They now have two restaurants, one of them being the largest in Scandinavia, with 110 seats. Their food is exquisite, definitely worth a visit.

A bakery with lots of vegan bread, pastries and baked goods. Many of the goodies are also gluten free, and everything is organic.

Address: Frederiksborggade 29

42° Raw

Yet another raw food restaurant that is very popular, which unfortunately means it can be difficult to find a place to sit. The prices are quite high, but the food is good and you can get everything from homemade drinks and sweets to more savoury dishes.

Address: Pilestaede 32 (Ströget)
