Chocolate & Danish Modern

Flower

When you think of museum cafés, you don’t often think “swank”.  However, that is not the case with the café at the National Gallery of Art in Copenhagen. With towering glass windows offering beautiful views of the Østre Anlæg park, this café imbues modern Danish art & minimalist design. The unconventional bright green tables and chairs mark a collaboration between artist Bjørn Nørgaard and designer Peter Lassen of the Montana Furniture Company.  Continuing the minimalist theme, each table is topped by only a porcelain vase with a single fresh flower.

In addition to these special chef creations, there is a daily buffet that will not disappoint.  It features salmon, herring, roast pork, & ham paired with a selection of salads, fruits, and cheeses.  Save room for a café latte and a chocolate truffle.
