Breakfast-Goals: Frede & Vester's

The first place in Copenhagen I moved into was a shared apartment located at the end of Vesterbrogade, right before Frederiksberg Have. I loved this place for various reasons, especially because it gave my life in Copenhagen a specific turn. However, another reason was the convenient area right between hip Vesterbro and the rather posh Frederiksberg. At some point, Frede & Vester's moved into a little venue across the street, and I quickly started a routine of getting coffee and a "bolle med ost" (a bun with cheese) on-the-go on my way to university. While this is now more than 3 years ago and I have moved away in the meantime, I still sometimes wondered if the little coffee place still existed. It turned out it does, and even better they opened up a new place more centered in Frederiksberg. So today, I went by to check it out, and the best word that comes to my mind is Instagram-Heaven.

Frede & Vester's has a very classic breakfast and lunch menu. The serve vegan buns (I guess that counts as classic by now), omelets, (very delicious) croissants, sandwiches, juices, cakes and coffees. I actually have this thing that I love a hard boiled egg for breakfast, yet it is surprising how many cafés screw that up, even though they say it is not a problem. Well, Frede & Vester's passed the test. :)  

It was quiet empty for a sunday, which of course was great for me, because I could walk around taking pictures of every corner. The whole café has been decorated by Studio K, who is also the master-creator behind Mikkeller & Friends on Stefansgade, and the results can definitely be seen. It is like a color explosion from floor to ceiling, while decorated with so much love for detail and many cosy elements (such as plants, cushions, candles,...), which makes for a warm atmosphere.

Frede & Vester's is a must if you need to kickstart a grey day or simply need a boost of colorful, but also highly contrast-noise ratio on a sunday morning. I am surprised that this very photogenic place, which also serves some of the best buns I have tasted so far, is not all over Instagram, yet.
