Going to Reykjavik and Copenhagen. Any food/dining suggestions?

I'm afraid Noma is beyond my budget...

I can't speak to Reykjavik, but here's a list of Copenhagen-
Sankt Peders Bageri-- the oldest bakery in KBH. Go on a Wednesday for onsdagssnegle, a giant, amazing cinnamon roll, or any day for an easy lunch.
Soupanatural- organic soup, good for lunch or dinner, no frills
Paludan Bogcafe- a bookstore converted into a cafe, good at any hour, breakfast, lunch, dinner or drinks; a good place to sit if you have time to kill
Torvehallerne Market- combination farmers market and food hall
Conditori La Glace- insane (and pricy) cakes. Worth at least walking by to admire the windows
Get a drink at one of the cafes in Nyhavn, but the food around there usually isn't great and it's pretty touristy.
Mikkeller- I haven't been, but I've heard good things
Kalaset- my favorite brunch. It can take a while though.
Sticks'N'Sushi- good sushi, even though it's a chain.
Restaurant Schoennemann- Very traditional smørrebrød; menu full of herring and schnapps.

I hope that helps!

This is awesome! Thanks, Steph.
I've been to AC Perch Teehandlung, but the retail tea store. I understand they now have a cafe as well. Light lunch and snacks work well for us, so your list is perfect.

Reykjavik is just marvelous! There are lots of options, but I ate light food at Mama Steina's, Icelandic Fish & Chips, Baejarins Beztu Pylsur. I didn't get to these places but people love Kex, Dill, & Slippbarrin. I also suggest picking up a Phaidon 'Where Chef's Eat' book next time you are at a bookstore and looking at the Reykjavik + Copenhagen suggestions! I highly recommend this book for culinary travel.

in copenhagen (i haven't visited reykjavik) do not miss the red hot dogs in a bun. or the ice cream in waffle cones. or danish mayonnaise. the open faced sandwiches are wonderful, especially those with beef jelly (jelled broth) and liver. they also have a traditional white pudding with some kind of red berry in it. i think they are famous for the salmon and pork and ham. have fun...can you post later and let us know what you found?

OMG Scruz, I was in Copenhagen 35 years ago when I was 9 years old and I remember those red hot dogs! I haven't thought of those in years! At the time, as an American kid used to American dogs, the color totally freaked me out. Anyhow, I was tickled to remember those after all these years - glad you mentioned them.
