French Madame in Copenhagen: Day 1


I am back from Denmark, and now I proudly present my pictures
I took of lovely Copenhagen, particulary the cakes and sweets!

So on to business!

I flew from Düsseldorf, Germany and ate a lovely lunch at the airport.
A croissant with Bonne Maman cherry jam - how very French!

Some people hate to fly. I am not one of them.
Gorgeous views!

I arrived safely in Denmark and exchanged my euros for Danish kroner.
I always feel very rich after doing this; 1 euro equals 7,5 kroner.

I took a train ride from the airport to Nørreport in the city centre and
met my friend there. She showed me her neighborhood and suggested a few
favorite bakeries of hers, which I scribled down quickly.

We sat down at a gem of a café, Savoir, which serves tapas and
an endless selection of some of the best cakes I have ever tasted!

I asked the Italian waiter what kind of cakes they were serving today
and it was just impossible to choose! Raspberry - chocolate, oreo cheesecake,
chocolate cheesecake, lemon meringue, brownies, cookies and much more.

I finally decided on a luscious-looking coconut/banana meringue slice.
It was pure heaven, I tell you. Heaven!

Ohmygawd! So full after this piece! My friend chose her favorite,
an oreo cheesecake slice.

More pictures from their Facebook page:

Beautiful, no-fuss, home-made cakes is what their motto is.
It suits me! You should pay a visit if you ever happen to be in Copenhagen.
It's on Guldbergsgade 11.

That's it for my pictures of day 1. It was only a half day including the traveling.

Till tomorrow!
