Since 1772 there has been an inn on this spot, feeding wayfarers of yore who took horse and carriage along the coast heading for Helsingør. Today much of yesterday has been swept away and what remains is this cafe-restaurant, which is the best and also the most convenient place for lunch, lying only a short walk from the museum. If you're so enthralled with the museum that you're still around at dinnertime, you can also dine here before heading back to the heart of Copenhagen.
We've always found the food satisfying in an old-fashioned sort of way, although we never feel we have to call the editors of Gourmet magazine on our cellphones. At lunch, most diners dig into a range of open-faced sandwiches -- usually three will satisfy. At night you can partake of recipes based on tried-and-true dishes such as a platter-size wiener schnitzel. Veal also comes in medallions with a rich morel sauce. Herring is dressed up with a sherry sauce, and deep-fried filet of plaice comes with shrimp just recently caught off the coast.
