If there is one cafe that is a must at the holidays, it is definitely the Royal Smushi Cafe, which is located right on the Strøget, so you can easily pop in for a little break from shopping and seeing the holiday windows at Illum.  The decor changes with the seasons, and at Christmas you will find the shelves lined with a variety of ornaments and holiday decor to choose from.  There is also a special Christmas menu that includes a few traditional Danish treats only served at the holidays such as æbleskiver (a cross between a donut and a pancake) and ris a la mande (a delicious rice pudding with almonds and cherry sauce).  They even have a special Christmas Smushi menu, which include a stunning variety of miniature traditional open faced Danish sandwiches.

Grab a seat by the window and enjoy the view over the gorgeous courtyard which backs up to the Royal Copenhagen Flagship store.  You may even catch a glimpse of a very special guest if your timing is right.  A cafe such as the Royal Smushi Cafe is worth a visit any time of year, but at Christmas it is an extra special treat.
