Conditori La Glacé (Skoubogade 3) is, as the post title implies, the oldest patisserie in Copenhagen, and it really looks the part. I adored their Fortnum&Mason-like window display, the paintings decorating the walls and the brocades softening them, the quaint uniforms and the glittering silverware.
This is where I decided to start my day with a cup of La Glacé’s own cinnamon-flavored tea and a slice of, quote on quote, ‘chocolate cake with chocolate cream, covered with chocolate truffle’. If you ever saw a more perfect-sounding dessert, fight me.
Bonus Tip: In case you haven’t had your fill of the sweeter things in life, the internationally renowned Peter Beier chocolate shop is located literally next door. Apart from the more conventional milk/dark chocolate bars and candies, there are also chocolate truffles on offer with fillings ranging from chili to champagne. And, if you’ve noticed that I used the word ‘chocolate’ too often in this sentence, it’s because I’m obsessed with chocolate. Chocolate.
