No trip to Copenhagen can be complete without a visit to Meyers Bageri. Like the Swedish with their cinnamon bun, the Danish have perfected the art of pastry, and offer their own unique takes on the sweet treat. It's no wonder we call them Danishes in the U.S.! The founder of Meyers Bageri, Claus Meyer, also co-founded Noma and the philosophy of the New Nordic Cuisine. But unlike Noma, Meyers Bageri offers delicious breads and baked goods made with organic, locally sourced ingredients in an approachable and affordable setting.
While we can't remember the exact names of the pastries we sampled during our visit, we can remember that they were incredibly delicious, fresh and flavor-packed with every bite.
Luckily for us, Claus Meyer has expanded his empire to New York City, with a new upscale restaurant and food hall in Grand Central, as well as an outpost of Meyers Bageri in Brooklyn.
It's on our to-do list to try out the Brooklyn location, so we'll keep you posted on how it stacks up to the original.
