Traditional lunch in a period setting
Fancy a good, old-fashioned Danish lunch between your museum visits? Then Café & Ølhalle ‘1892’ in the cellar underneath the Workers Museum is just the place for you.
You won’t find a more authentic slice of traditional Copenhagen life than here. The restaurant still bears its original name from 1892, and it is the only cellar restaurant to be listed – meaning that it is officially protected by the city’s planning authorities, with no changes allowed. The period setting alone makes Café & Ølhalle ‘1892’ well worth a visit.
The café offers well-made, traditional Danish open-face sandwiches, known as ‘smørrebrød’. They are presented as small, delicate servings, allowing you to choose exactly what appeals to – and to enjoy as many servings as you can eat. The menu boasts several interesting varieties of beers, on tap and bottled, and you can browse an exquisite selection of home-brewed schnapps.
The kitchen supports organic and sustainable farming and prefers ingredients that are local, pasture-raised, protect the seabed and are pesticide-free. Cooking everything scratch is a matter of principle, so every single item that goes into a traditional Danish lunch – from bread to pickled herrings, beets, and sauces – are homemade just as they would be than 100 years ago.
