Apollo Bar & Kantine is the museum café at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, but it is also a destination on its own. Run by chef and creator Frederik Bille Brahe, who also owns the popular Atelier September on Gothersgade, it is a great place to have lunch, but also a cozy café and meeting place, serving inventive dishes throughout the day.

The space is inviting and feels arty, with high ceilings and statues on display. Visitors sit on chairs covered with small paint splatters which are borrowed from the art school next door. That art school’s cantine is the second place in the building where Bille Brahe set up shop, offering a delicious and healthy lunch every day that doesn’t break the bank, with a choice between a vegetarian and a meat dish. The canteen is open and accessible to the public on weekdays between 11.30am and 2pm, the café stays open all day.
