Time for Coffee and Danish Pastry

This post has a sentimental meaning for me. Coming from a baker family, I tend to love bakeries… hahaha. But besides that, Denmark is famous for it’s pastry and everybody knows that. So, I’m not being any partial here. This post has a meaning for me because I started loving the real Danish pastry when I stepped for the first time inside this super cool and popular bakery called Lagkagehuset (don’t try to pronunce it…it’s not gonna work if you just read it) in Copenhagen. Even when I was abroad somewhere, I used to miss my Denmark and my Lagkagehuset! So funny!

Para meus leitores em portugues:

Esse post tem um valor sentimental para mim. Vinda de uma familia de padeiros e confeiteiros, tenho a tendencia em amar padarias… ahahahh. Mas apesar apesar disso, a Dinamarca e’ famosa pelos seus confeitos e todos sabem disso. Entao, eu nao estou sendo parcial aqui. Esse post tem um significado para mim porque eu comecei a amar os verdadeiros confeitos dinamarqueses quando eu entrei pela primeira vez nessa super bacana e badalada padaria chamada Lagkagehuset (nao tentem pronunciar porque nao vai funcionar com a palavra escrita) in Copenhagen. Mesmo quando eu estava em algum outro pais, eu sentia saudades da minha Dinamarca e da minha Lagkagehuset! Tao engracado!

super popular top quality danish pastries bread and sandwiches lagkagehuset I chose to shoot this branch in Vanløse, again for the meaning that it has for me. When I came to live in Denmark, I lived here, therefore I used to come to this shop and enjoy the atmosphere there. That’s how I fell in love with the pastries and got so fast into the way Danes live. They have branches all over the city and all of them are always packed with beautiful people looking for delicious and quality pastries, cakes, breads, etc.

Escolhi fotografar essa filial em Vanløse, de novo pelo significa que ela tem para mim. Quando vim morar na Dinamrca, eu vivi aqui, entao eu sempre vinha para essa loja para medeliciar com a atmosfera. Foi assim que me apaixonei aos confeitos e me acostumei super rapido com a mameira de viver dos dinamarqueses. Eles tem filiais em toda a cidade e todas elas estao sempre cheias de gente bonita procurando por deliciosos confeitos, bolos, paes, etc.

great variety of breads and pastries at the lagkagehuset in CopenhagenThey open early like in any bakery. It’s useless to say that the products are super high quality and the freshness are just remarkable. You can find your fresh rugbrød, or any other kind of bread. Even Italian types they make it very well.

Eles abrem cedo como toda padaria. Inutil dizer que todos os produtos sao de alta qualidade e a fresqueza sao realmente notavel. Voce pode seu rugbrød fresco, ou qualquer outro tipo de pao. Ate’ mesmo pao italiano, eles fazem super bem.

best breakfast in the bakery with delicious danish pastry and coffee in lagkagehusetAll you have to do is to grab your coffee and pastry and have a sit inside or outside. It doesn’t matter, because if you choose inside you will relish the super cool Danish minimalistic style and if you sit outside, you will relish the beautiful view of Copenhagen streets. I sometimes don’t know what to do. But when it’s sunny, if you find a chair outside, run and get it before somebody else does it!

Tudo que voce tem que fazer e’ pegar seu cafe’ e confeito e sentar-se dentro ou fora. Nao importa, porque se voce escolhe dentro, voce vai saborear o super cool estilo minimalista dinamarques, e se voce se sentar fora, ira’ saborear a vista das ruas de Copenhagen.Eu muitas vezes nao sei o que fazer. Mas quando esta ensolarado, se voce encontrar uma cadeira fora, corra e pegue-as antes alguem o faca!

minimalistic danish style in super popular lagkagehuset in copenhagenCurios enough, as you can see in the picture, the style is modern Danish super stylish minimalistic cool and all the eatable items are exposed and not protected by any glass or window. When my brother saw that he could not believe in his eyes, since in our family bakery all the items must be protected by law. The reason why in Denmark is all exposed is the climate and believe it or not, the lack or mosquitoes and flies. Funny? But the truth!!! I love it here…there’s no mosquitoes! ahahaha Therefore Danes can keep their bakeries so old fashioned stylished…it’s so beautiful!

Bastante curioso, como voces podem ver pela foto, o estilo e’ dinamarques moderno estiloso minimalista e bacana e todos os itens comestiveis sao expostos nao protegidos por nenhum vidro ou vitrine. Quando meu irmao viu isso nao acreditou nos seus olhos, desde que na nossa padaria de familia todos os itens tem que ser protegidos por lei. A razao pela qual aqui na Dinamarca e’ tudo exposto e’ o clima e acredite se quiser, aqui nao tem nao tem nem moscas nem pernelongos. Engracado? Mas e’ verdade!!! Eu adoro aqui… nao tem pernelongos! ahahahaha Por isso os dinamarqueses podem manter suas padarias tao ao modo antigo. E’ tao bonito!

delicious spandauer dansih most popular pastry in lagkagehusetOk, so here is the top most delicious pastry ever… besides the kanelsnegle, or cinnamon rolls, but Danish version. This one in the picture is called “spandauer” and it’s pure butter Danish puff pastry with raspberry jam, marzipan and almond on the top. Oh my Lord… help me! Help me for not eating as many as I wish! Pure enjoyment and you will never have that taste anywhere… forget it! We tried to reproduce it in our bakery in Brazil, but the result is just not the same. I always give new suggestions to my family, but it’s really difficult to reproduce the same quality and texture of the Danish pastry.

Ok, aqui esta’ o confeito mais delicioso de todos os tempos… claro alem do kanelsnegle, ou fatia hungara, mas versao dinamarquesa. Este daqui e’ o “spandauer” e e’ pura manteiga dinamarquesa em massa folhada com geleia de framboesa, marzipan e amendoas em cima. Oh, meu Senhor… me ajude! Me ajude a nao comer todos os que eu desejo! Puro prazer e voce nunca vai encontrar esse gosto em nenhum outro lugar… desista! Nos tentamos reporduzi-lo na nossa confeitaria no Brasil, mas o resultado nao foi exatamente o mesmo. Eu sempre dou novas sugestoes para minha familia, mas e’ super dificil reproduzir a mesma qualidade e textura da massa folhada dinamarquesa.

sandwiches in display in practic bags to take away in lagkagehusetThey also have delicious salads and sandwiches in practical plastic containers for take away or sitting in the shops. I took these pictures very early in the morning to have the chance of getting the shop a bit empty and quiet. Danes are used to people photographing everything, so the girls in the shop did not say anything about me shooting everywhere. They are too polite and reserved for that.

Eles tambem tem saladas e sandwiches in embalagens praticas para levar ou comer na loja. Eu tirei essas fotos de manha bem cedinho para poder ter a loja vazia e quieta. Os dinamarqueses estao acostumados com pessoas fotografando tudo, entao as meninas na loja nem falaram nada comigo que estava fotogrando tudo. Eles sao muito educados e reservaodos para poder fazer uma coisa do genero.

little detail of free water at lagkagehusetEvery little detail is nice. Free water for the guests. It’s a nice thought. Shows that you care for your customers. I appreciate it.

Todo pequeno detalhe e’ bom. Agua gratis para todos. E’ uma boa ideia. Demonstra que se preocupam com os clientes. Eu aprecio.

delicious berries cake with belt of marzipan danish style in lagkagehuset So then, I finish this post with this amazing berries cake with a thick belt of pure Danish marzipan in it’s best version for you to dream about it and make sure when you come to Denmark visit a nearest Lagkagehuset. You won’t regret it and I can guarantee you will never forget it and like me, love Copenhagen! Drop me a line with a thought. I’d love to hear from you. Thank you for the affection!

Entao, eu termino mais um post com essa torta maravilhosa de frutas do bosco com um cinto de puro marzipan dinamarques na sua melhor versao para voce sonhar com ela e se certificar que quando viajar para ca, visitar uma Lagkagehuset mais proxima de voce. Voce nao vai se arrepender e posso lhe garantir voce nunca mais ira se esquecer, e como eu, amara’ Copenhagen! Deixe sua mensagem ou o que voce achou. Iria adorar saber o que voce achou. Obrigada pelo carinho!
