Claiming a spot on the decorated street of Gothersgade in Copenhagen since 1987, one would be silly to walk past and not turn their heads at the enchanting café that is Atelier September.
What is unique about this spot, apart from its flavourful coffee and pieces of art sold in the form of an avocado sandwich, is that it first began as a boutique and not a coffee spot. At the time of the 80's the shop sold pieces from the Art Deco era, bringing business for the likes of Eileen Gray and Gaudi. It wasn't until 2013 that Danish chef Frederik Bille Brahe opened a café component for the front of the shop. Serving artisan coffee, breakfast, lunch, pastries, and as mentioned before, an impeccable avocado sandwich, this spot is very close to Nyhavn and could perhaps be an unplanned stop amongst a tourist's travel. However, upon my first time trying Atelier September, other people in the shop were taking proper photos of themselves, their meals. I imagine they were bloggers or instagrammers, which makes me also deliberate whether maybe this is a "must-see" cafe in the heart of Copenhagen.
The prices are a little too high to come here all that often, but the atmosphere of the café does it justice. With an all white, Danish antiquous interior, vintage editions of the New Yorker and Børsen, and the iconic boutique in the back of the bar and seating, if you're able to ignore the photoshoot happening to the right of you, you're taken back a few decades in the length of time it takes for you to finish your coffee.
