DANISH CHRISTMAS Buffet december 2-23 2014

The lunch and dinner buffets are based on contemporary Danish cuisine. Everything on the buffet is freshly prepared and well assorted, so you can compose your lunch or dinner according to how much and how healthy you prefer your meal – regardless of whether you prefer fish, meat, both or vegetarian. The meat, poultry and produce are seasonal and often come from high-quality suppliers such as Grambogård and Søren Wiuff. The individual dishes are conceived and prepared from scratch by the café’s talented chefs, and the bread is always home-baked, of course.

A new interpretation of traditional Danish open-faced sandwiches with homemade cold cuts. It gets no more Danish than this.

Louisiana’s coffee is brewed from fresh-roasted beans from the micro-roaster Kontra. The carefully selected Brazilian beans give a rich, nutty taste. The beans are not ground until the coffee is brewed – by filter, since this method is especially well suited to bring out the full aroma in an ordinary cup of coffee.

Laid-back Friday evenings in the Café with live bands or the best DJs of the day. Arranged so that you can enjoy the music with the dinner buffet or just a glass of wine.

On selected Friday evenings, the Café is converted to a lounge scene with a pleasant atmosphere full of pop, jazz, folk, electronic or other contemporary lounge sounds. Both well-established and new musicians, singers and DJs appear on the program. The atmosphere is informal and intimate, with room for both musical pleasures and good conversation. 

  • The Friday Lounge events are musical evening get-togethers and not formal concerts. They are intended as a relaxing prelude to the weekend that also serves – in keeping with the spirit of the museum – as a meeting place and a setting for conviviality and a sense of community.
  • The Friday Lounge is free of charge for the museum’s guests – and it is a popular event. So it is not possible to reserve a table (no matter how many guests). Make sure to come early.
  • Please note also that not all areas in the Café are wired for sound, so it is not possible to hear the music and see the stage from all the seats.
