Danish Pastry

If you are in Copenhagen you have to try Danish pastry, the most popular is the Snegl. They come with cinnamon, icing, sugar, just name it, a spiral pastry full of sweetness. Another quite popular on the shelves is the Spandauer a type of wienerbrød or Vienna Bread which dates from 1850 when Danish bakers went to strike and the bakery owners hired Austrians to work in their shops, Austrians made their recipes and the Danish felt in love with these deciding to adopt these recipes and made them regulars in their bakeries.


After research I found that the places to go are Lagkagehuset and Sankt Peders. The first one a chain with several locations around town, pretty convenient, the second one more a small little gem hiding in the city centre.



Sankt Peders Bageri

I went to both, got a couple snegl some spandauer, there are so many options to choose that I lost track of all the perfect pieces of bake dough that I ingested. Both places are a must but I quite prefer the Sankt Peders is more personal and unique experience. Good thing is that you can have these sweet treats all over the city, you will be bumping into a bakery in every corner, hey they call it Danish Pastry for a reason right?

More Snegl please

Danish reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Nose Job”.

Elaine: Daddy certainly does have an extensive wardrobe.
Landlord: He is a fine dresser and I'm sure I don't have to tell you he's quite popular with the ladies.
Elaine: My father, really? I had no idea.
Landlord: Yes, they're crazy about him. There was one in particular, came around about two years ago, looked a lot like you, Professor. Could have been your mother. What was her name again? Carter? Kramer! That's it, Babs Kramer. Nasty woman, many a night I had to throw her out on the street, drunken stumblebum.
Kramer: You don't say?
Elaine: I found it!

Landlord: The woman used to walk around here half naked, sucking Colt 45 from a can. Her big fat stomach hanging out, orthopedic hose up to her knees, screaming down the hall, “Come back to bed, Albert, you big hairy ape, and bring back that box of Danish!"
