Just before heading to Spain, my littlest son, Landon, and I met up with my good friend, Liz, and her new little guy, Ethan.  Of course we had to meet at Liz’s favorite cafe, Maude’s, which is a stone’s throw from Copenhagen’s city center but is technically in Frederiksberg, a city that prides itself on being it’s own town.  We had been watching the forecast all week and it was suppose to get warmer, but right in the middle of our tea together, it started pouring snow.  How sweet and romantic, right?  Well, let’s not stay out here in the cold.  Let’s pop into Maude’s Cafe, shall we?

Maude’s Cafe has the most amazing atmosphere.  There is a good reason that Liz introduced us to this cafe.  With it’s gorgeous decor, a blend of black & white and new & old, I could come here every single day and be happy.  They offer everything from pastries and rolls to a lovely little brunch buffet that includes fruit, musli, orange juice and more.

It is quiet and laid back, so it makes the perfect spot to meet up with a friend to chit chat and catch up.  My littlest always brings a car or two along and has no trouble entertaining himself, which is nice because sometimes when a cafe is super crowded or noisy little ones can get a bit aggravated.

Maude’s offers a wide variety of coffee and tea options, but I recommend trying Maude’s House Tea Blend.  It is so delicious and you can even buy some and bring it home in a cute little tin.

Liz and I had the nicest time catching up and I was thrilled to have a chance to hold little Ethan.  Isn’t he just a doll?   The snow started to fall outside, while the cafe inside was cozy and warm.  We hated to leave and contemplated staying for lunch, which pretty much sums up the perfect way to spend a morning with a good friend, don’t you think?  Before we left, we snapped a few more photos just so we could remember our morning together and then we were off to play in the snow…

One, where’d'ja get the ring?
Two, you walk in the SNOW in those heels????


Tina February 27, 2014 at 9:22 am

The ring was a gift from my mom and shoes were completely the wrong choice for the day. It wasn’t suppose to snow!

Beth, your #2 is my #1! How is it that your feet aren’t frozen? I’ve been wearing the ultra un-attractive Ugg’s this winter, but it’s the first winter where my feet haven’t been cold. Please tell me you drove your car–

Normally I would have had my snow boots on, but thankfully I wasn’t walking far to the car so it was fine.

Loved this cafe!! The black and white elegance, contrasting with the terra cotta vases, plants and other details look so very charming! Definitely a nice place to visit during colder days! And you look adorable, as always!!
