Store Kongensgade 80-82
1264 Copenhagen, Denmark
Located around the corner from the Marble Church (Frederiks Kirke
), this classy French patisserie, charcuterie and small cafe was until recently known as 'Cascabel' and offers everything for the perfect picnic to go or something to eat in, added to which, most of the homemade goodies on offer are also organic. The French owner Bernard Berthier previously ran a French restaurant called Le Basilic and while the prices here are a little higher than at similar spots, the quality is impeccable. The cafe side of the premises serves not only tea or coffee but is also licensed to serve both beer and wine, with a changing hot choice on the menu as well as salads and soups. In 2006, a small tea room was added to Taste and furnished with deep leather sofas, offering a range of teas accompanied by delicate French biscuits and pastries freshly-baked on the premises like macaroons and Madeleines. Travel guide Lonely Planet
described Taste's muffins as Copenhagen's best.
