Eating with your mouth and eyes
Social media play an increasingly major role when we are considering where to eat. And also while we are eating, as we document the goodies. Here is a short guide to great culinary and visual experiences.
Do you also dream of neatly-decorated matcha bowls and vegan cakes for your Insta feed? So maybe Matcha Bar would be a great place for your next visit.

Recently, poke bowls have been taking Denmark by storm, and it is not difficult to understand why. At OLIOLI you can tuck into one of the trendy poke bowls. The food tastes just as great as it looks. You can compose your own bowlful of your favourites or simply choose one from the menu. Find OLIOLI here.
The Apollo Bar is a favourite bolthole for Copenhagen art-lovers, who also enjoy a bite to eat at the Kunsthal Charlottenborg café.

At Cantina there is street life and plenty of room to let your hair down.
