Bonjour, ami! If you’re in Denmark and looking for authentic yet modern French cuisine, check out Les Trois Cochons (English translation: “Three Little Pigs”) to satisfy your cravings. And we’re not kidding ladies and gents, this classic bistro and its surroundings are a must-see in Denmark. This cozy little cafe in Copenhagen is the closest you can get to nailing your Parisian brunch goals with a Scandinavian twist.

French–Danish Fusion

Les Trois Cochons does modern French and Danish food and does it très bon. From espressos and pastries to avocado toast and mimosas, a satisfying French-style brunch isn’t far away. Don’t be afraid to have a dessert for breakfast, because who can honestly visit a French restaurant without trying the crème brûlée?

Parisian Chic Design

You wouldn’t believe it at first sight, but the location of Les Trois Cochons used to be a butcher shop. Although this intimate restaurant has a modern take on French fare, the setting of the place is as classic French as it gets. The interior boasts brass furniture and dark finishes, French wicker chairs, a central bar made of marble, floor-to-ceiling windows, and old-fashioned checkered floors.

Surrounding Area

This very Parisian cafe sits on a very Parisian street, Værnedamsvej, which is known as Denmark’s own “Little France”, and a must-visit street in Copenhagen. The lovely street features wine bars, endless cafes, fashion boutiques, and charming flower shops. While sitting outside a cafe and sipping an espresso, you’ll be sure to hear conversations in French of passerbys - there’s even a French school for children in the neighborhood! You'll be saying, "plus rosé s'il vous plaît" before you know it, mon chérie.
