Blågårdsgade at Nørrebro is one of my favourite places in Copenhagen. There are some really nice shops and cafés and generally a really good vibe.

Mayol is a cute little shop with girly things for your home. The café/bar next to Mayol, Props Coffee Shop is the place you go when you need a beer or a cup of coffee combined with a long talk with your best friend, a new friend or just the paper. All of the furniture is second hand, which gives a nice feeling to the place.

Harbo Bar is a rather new café at Blågårdsgade, but there are no problems getting customers when you've got good coffee, warm apple cider and nice bartenders.

Café N (as in Nørrebro) serves cheap, well-tasting vegetarian food - and it's a nice place too! It's a small place, but people are already starting to sit outside.

In the middle of Blågårdsgade you'll find Blågårdsplads. In winter there's iceskating, in summer football and flea markets.

I live very close to where Nørrebro meets Frederiksberg, but I spend more time at Nørrebro than at Frederiksberg. Maybe I need to change that and find my way around in a new part of Copenhagen, but this is a tribute post to Nørrebro!

Optician's window again

At Vesterbro. I hope you can see the glasses in the back to make clear that this IS at an optician. The picture makes me wanna have popcorn.

Favourite bike-mender at Nørrebro

This is the best bike-mender* I know in Copenhagen. It is located at Blågårdsgade, Nørrebro. The fixed my unfixable bike, and I will be grateful forever! And they have a nice-looking shop too :)

* I really hope this is a word. My dictionary says so, but I never heard it before. I still kinda like it :)

Opticians' windows: toilet paper

This optician was obviously not out of toilet paper.

Opticians' windows: beer cans

This window exhibition is pretty complicated. Crumpled beer cans and a sign saying "What is Møller drinking?", refering to a Danish saying: "Hvad drikker Møller - øller!": "What is Møller drinking? - beer!". Even though it is mostly difficult to explain a joke, I will try: When yelling "Møller" in a place that gives echoes, one will hear the echo "øller". Hah-hah.

Optician windows

During my walks in Copenhagen, it has come to my attention that opticians' windows are very inventive and humorous. Therefore I will now start a series about it on this blog. These pictures are from a pasta-loving optician located very clear to the city hall square in Copenhagen:
