The central thoroughfare in the Nørrebro district, an area separated from cultural center Indre By by the "lakes," Nørrebrogade is an ethnically diverse street that has seen the best and worst of what has transpired in Copenhagen and is the better for it. A center of public protest in times of crisis, Nørrebrogade has seen riots and violence, but thrives today as an inexpensive gastronomic alternative to the Michelin-starred restaurants that seem to crop up in every corner of the city.
At it's southernmost end, Nørrebrogade adjoins with Blågårdsgade, Elmegade, and Ravnsborggade, making for a golden triangle of cafes that include the aptly named Laundromat Cafe, artist mecca Props Coffee Shop, and hot spot Bodega Nørrebro. Heading north, you'll encounter numerous Middle-Eastern joints where falafel, shawarma, and kebobs are the main dish; the concentration is especially high across from the Assistens Cemetery. You'll also find food trucks, fast food, pizza, and other staples of the international diet scattered up and down the street.
Get to Nørrebrogade to enjoy one of Copenhagen's most multicultural areas and one of the best options for cheap and delicious eats.
