What food is more iconic in Denmark than a Danish pastry? Of course hot dogs and open sandwiches are up there, but you can’t visit the country without indulging in a few pastries. They’re just too good to miss. For the ultimate Danish pastry experience visit Andersen Bakery for the dreamiest brunch.
As the best bakery in Copenhagen, it’s ironic that the owners and bakers of Anderson Bakery are actually Japanese. After travelling to Denmark and falling in love with their sweet treats, Shunsuke Takaki opened his first bakery in 1962. Since then they’ve been serving up an array of perfect pastries.
I defy you to find a better bakery.
Choose between sweet or savoury, hot or cold and a rainbow of macaroons and cream cakes, all showcased behind glass. We went for a few of the classics including cinnamon buns, almond croissants and mini custard and raspberry jam squares with a mini chocolate swirl.
Their pastries are honestly the best I have ever eaten and you can see why Andersen Bakery is king of the danish. Their croissants are golden brown and perfectly fluffy and flakey all at the same time and the cinnamon buns are not too dense and have a sweet icing that runs all the way through.
In an effort to get in one of our five a day we made sure we indulged in a few raspberry squares! Nothing to do with the delicious sugary pastry or syrupy jam of course!
