Restaurant Schoennemann

Address: Hauser Plads 16, Copenhagen 1127, Denmark
Phone: +45 33 12 07 85

Why we dined here: We wanted to try the best smørrebrød in Copenhagen. Restaurant Schoennemann kept on popping up in our Google searches.

In a Nutshell: Delicious smørrebrød, but too pricey for what you get!

The smørrebrød (open-faced sandwich) was in my Eat list when I visited Copenhagen and after some Googling, I stumbled upon Restaurant Schoennemann as the place to go for the best smørrebrød. So I called in a week in advance to make reservations. The restaurant itself has a cozy, old home ambiance but with fancy plates and silverware.

I cannot attest to whether Schoennemann does offer the best smørrebrød, since this was my one and only smørrebrød experience. However, they do offer a wide selection so there should at least be one type that will suit each person in your party. We enjoyed the smørrebrøds we ordered, at least while they lasted. The portion is small (by North American standards at least). It is not enough to qualify for a meal. The prices are steep, considering the amount of food you get. Also, despite how good the smørrebrød may be, it is still just a sandwich.
