You could be forgiven for assuming there was a Russian menu on offer at Cafe Petersborg, but this traditional Danish eatery takes its name instead from its past connections with the Russian Embassy that was previously located in the same building; the restaurant thus became a favorite with Russian sailors. It's one of Copenhagen's oldest restaurants and can trace its roots back to the mid-1700s. Petersborg is a well-established, traditional Danish restaurant that's particularly popular for lunchtime dining but also open for evening meals. In addition to the open sandwiches on offer, Danish dinner classics served here include frikadeller meatballs with red cabbage and potatoes and the restaurant's homemade 'biksemad', made with cubes of potatoes, meat and onions, and served with the traditional fried egg on top. Cafe Petersborg is located at the far end of Bredgade, close to Kastellet and Churchillparken.
