The Coffee Bar

A little piece of the 1950’s

The Coffee Bar is a part of the Danish working class culture. At The Workers Museum we have a 1950’s coffee bar still in function.

In the 1950’s coffee bars could be found all over the city of Copenhagen. There were over a 100 different shops for the workers to visit. The coffee bar were a place for the workers to relax, drink a cup of coffee, read the paper and eat – either the dish served in the coffee bar or the pucket lunch brought from home.

In our own little coffee bar which was originaly situated in the Copenhagen neighborhood Valby, we serve cake – and our famous chocolate biscuit cake, candy, Danish Star-beer, soda and  water. You can also drink a special cup of coffee with the coffee substitute Rich’s in it, best known from usage during the second world war.  These refreshments can be enjoyed in the nostalgic surroundings next to the old assembly hall.

Reservation is not possible.
