Hidden Copenhagen Gems: Kayht og Kaffe

Cafe boat Kahyt og Kaffe

Be careful what you wish for, as the saying goes. Having spent the best part of nine months attempting to find a job, I finally accepted a job offer (where else but with the same company Steve works…!) and started 1st September, full-time, hence the lack of blog action lately.

Anyhow, having spent half-term (or ‘efterarsferie’) back in the UK with kids but without Steve, we had a pretty quiet weekend reconnecting as a family. Yesterday we visited Tivoli, decked out in impressive Halloween decorations (more on that in another post). Today we decided to try out Kahyt og Kaffe, a very hyggeligt cafe down at Skibbroen.

As you can see from the photos (more on their website and Facebook page), this is a sweet little cafe boat, moored close to the Fisketorvet shopping mall. For about the last six months I have regularly cycled past on my way to or from my son’s school (first in Sydhavn and now in Valby), and have been looking for an opportunity to stop by.

So on a fairly grey and uninspiring October Sunday with nowhere special to be, that’s exactly what we did.

First though, we had to cross another long awaited ‘to do’ off our list and attach our ‘family’ padlock to the bridge over the harbour between Islands Brygge and Fisketorvet, joining the dozens of others left as mementoes.

Kahyt og Kaffe offers coffees, teas, soft drinks, and draught beers, as well as cakes and snacks. If the weather is amenable you can sit out on deck, and at the rear there is both a covered outside seating area and a very cosy ‘saloon’ inside seating area, complete with hygge blankets that customers are welcome to take out on deck to snuggle under.

Our yummy mango and passion fruit cheesecakes and coffees were welcome fuel for the cycle back home, via the autumnal colours of Amagerfaelled common.

It’s almost a year since we arrived here in Copenhagen: I have some thoughts brewing on that, so watch this space!
