Plant Power Food, Copenhagen

Plant Power Food’s mission statement is “We want to save our environment right now! – at the same time, we want to eat the healthiest diet possible.”

Our verdict on this passionate, plant-powered Copenhagen hotspot is they certainly carry it out … and with style.

The setting

Plant Power Food is in Nørrebro. A vibrant urban area packed with cafés, cool shops and pretty painted houses. Our tip is to explore by bike.

The space

Plant Power Food is light, minimalist and cosy.  The large space uses second hand furniture stylishly and you order at the counter. We loved the pretty pastel coloured china.

The little things that make a difference

Their major zero waste credentials.

The café rigorously compost, recycle and only use their dishwasher when it’s full.

They turn off the lights when they’re not needed and all straws are made from corn. Plus, their toilet paper is recycled milk cartons. We were seriously impressed.

The fresh juice test

Plant Power Food has a smoothie bar. There’s a choice of four smoothie juices. We had the Fast Nova a fruity mix of banana, raspberry, blueberry, beetroot ginger and apple. There’s also a Green Health, the Juicy Green Boost and a Good Morning Juice. Plus, there’s a tempting selection of non-alcoholic cocktails. We tried the Cranberry Dream a zingy, refreshing combo of cranberry juice and kefir water with blueberries, cranberries and fresh mint.

What we ate

There’s an inspiring menu We chose the avo open sandwich. It was a delicious concoction of sliced avocado on a base of sweet potato spread, served on rye bread, then dressed with tahini, cress, roasted nuts and balsamic pearls.

We also had the Mung Bean Miso which consisted of mung bean noodles in a warm miso soup with ginger, broccoli and dehydrated portobello mushrooms.

It was  topped with cherry tomatoes, daicon, coriander, roasted nuts and shiso cress. Everything was stunningly plated.

What we’d go back for…

Acacia Copenhagen

Dream of running a café with your loved ones? The Lagermann family have done just that with their vegan café, Acacia. Big sister cooks while mum and little sister serve the food.

The café opened in 2017 and has already gained many fans among local foodies, tourists, and food critics. It offers a small but perfect variety of organic, plant-based and gluten-free food and drinks including banana bread, waffles, smoothie bowls, salad and vegan lattes. All served with lashings of love.


The setting

The decor is cool Copenhagen meets Parisian chic.

There are beautiful white marble tables, perfect for those Insta photos! And everything is set in a black and white colour scheme. The family’s two dogs sleep the day away by the door which bring a real calmness to the place.

The little things

There are little-handwritten notes attached to the menus with daily, exciting dishes served on the counter. This adds to the charm and unpretentious vibe.

This is a café run by people with an honest passion for food.

The green juice test

There was just one juice on the menu  – a green made with cucumber, spinach, apple, and lime.

It was very fresh and rather Mojito-ish, as my boyfriend pointed out. Unfortunately, it came in a very small glass and we wished it had been a bit larger.

What we ate

We had an absolute Instagram worthy “Frozen Strawberry – Cashew Creme Bowl”. It was made of banana, raspberry, cinnamon Ceylon granola, coconut flakes, fresh strawberries and beetroot powder.

This was the perfect summer bowl with a zingy, velvety smooth base, crunchy topping and gorgeous beetroot powder drizzle.

I plan to use the beetroot powder idea at home.

We also had the “Summer Salad” which is the most recent addition to the Acacia menu.

This salad just blew me away with its warm lentil and quinoa, big chunks of watermelon, heavenly marinated red cabbage in ginger lime vinaigrette, crispy salted almonds and yummy almond butter dressing.

It comes with a “buttery”, crisp pumpkin seed cracker on the side. We also had the Iced Golden Mylk Latte made with turmeric paste, almond milk and fragrant dried flowers on top. This is quite filling so you should make sure, that you have room for it if you’re also eating.

What else

The food is so well prepared and you can imagine that big sister and chef, Alice Lagermann is totally passionate about while preparing the dishes back in the kitchen.

We also got excited about the prices. They are very reasonable and the quality of the food is very high compared to other vegan places in Copenhagen.

What made us glow

I can honestly say that I have been craving that Summer Salad ever since we visited Acacia. This was to me the true superstar of the meal. It is very rare that I have unforgettable meals, but chef Alice really managed to wow me.

Souls, Copenhagen

Souls is an absolute must visit café when in Copenhagen.

Tucked in a quiet corner of Østerbro called Nordhavn, it’s perfect for brunch, lunch or dinner.

Founded by two Aussies and Denmark’s best vegan Chef, Neel Engholm, their focus is on quality, soul food, sourced locally for people that are mindful of not only what they put in their body but how the food reaches their plate. Their motto is “Eat like you give a fork”.

The setting

Souls is bright and light with white walls, designer lighting, contemporary wooden tables.

The little things

Their menu is is exciting and extensive and we could have very easily stayed longer to take advantage of the menu.

It’s healthy, delicious food without being intimidating to less health-conscious people.

The green juice test

There were no green juices on the menu but they do a Green Machine smoothie (spinach, kale, apple, lemon, agave & rice milk), cold pressed apple or orange juice and ginger shots.

What we ate

We visited at breakfast. We shared the delicious Pancake Stack with seasonal fruit, maple syrup, homemade chocolate sauce and peanut butter and the Avo Smash on rye bread with cress, radish, thyme, pickled onion and cherry tomatoes.

For drinks we had a Coconut Iced Latte (which was the most beautifully presented coffee I’ve ever seen) and a huge Matcha latte with Oat milk – it was almost as big as my head!

The Bill

Pancake Stack with Peanut Butter 93DKK
Avo Smash 88DK
Coconut Iced Latte 46DKK
Matcha Latte 46DKK

What else?

The staff were all extremely helpful with both the menu and also telling us things to do whilst visiting Copenhagen.

If I had more time,  I would definitely have gone back for dinner- the menu looks absolutely delicious!

What made you glow?

The matcha latte felt like a meal in itself -comparable to a bowl of soup! It was absolutely delicious and everything was so beautifully presented (which always goes down well in my books).
