Copenhagen is full of fantastic places to have breakfast. And God knows we love a good breakfast! This is our last discovery to spend a lazy morning with great food, gorgeous fellow foodies and cool background music.
Located in ultra hip Vesterbro, Neighbourhood is a restaurant where you will find one of the best pizzas in Copenhagen, but also a more than delicious brunch. Expect handsome staff (beards, black attire, charming smiles), rough dark Nordic decor dotted with light wood and iluminated by huge windows, from where you will see the heterogeneous residents of the area. All in all, an easy going atmosphere where everyone is welcomed: young families, group of friends wearing the latest trends and couples, like us, that just want to eat their food and take pictures.
Everything is organic, from the produce to the presentation of the food. There were two options for brunch, being one of them vegetarian. We opted for the other one that came with an egg-crust breakfast pizza with spicy sausage, tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, red onion and fresh basil, Skyr with fresh apples, tarragon, muesli and fig compote, selection of charcuterie and cheeses, homemade basil pesto, apricot jam and butter, bread pile of homemade wholegrain malt bread, rye bread and a wholegrain cinnamon roll, fresh fruit and crunchy vegetables.
Bring it on! The savoury bits were outstanding, beeing the small selection of cheeses our favourite part. The egg crust pizza was maybe a little bit greasy and we would have preferred a tiny version of one of their pizzas, because they are incredibly good (more on that later). A very special mention goes to the whole grain cinnamon roll. Topped with the fluffiest meringue, it was a small piece of heaven. Light, sweet and sticky. We also ordered a pizza because why not? I’m not very happy with the concept of breakfast pizza, in makes my Italian roots shiver, but this was brunch and they looked delicious. Let me tell you, it was one of the best pizzas that we’ve ever eaten. Ever! The dough was surprisingly light and it was topped with a succulent mix of cured parma ham, fresh figs, red onions, goat cheese, capers, olive compote and fresh parsley. It was fresh and full of flavours at the same time. We poured a little bit of olive oil on top, as our friendly waiter recommended, and we devoured until the very last crumb. If we go back to Copenhagen you must know that this pizza will be one of the main reasons. Neighbourhood is perfect if you want simple good food in a relaxed atmosphere. Because more often than not, natural produce and simple cooking give the best results. And don’t forget to order a cocktail. You’ve already eaten a pizza for breakfast so…
