|This is going to sound weird (except to all the foodies out there) but breakfast was without a doubt the highlight of my day and one of my favorite parts of the trip. The breakfast in our hotel was included in the cost of the stay and it was incredible! Every night I was so excited to go to sleep just because I knew breakfast as only a few short hours away. It was that good. Mom and dad had stayed in this hotel previously and had told me about it, but I assumed it was just a “good” breakfast, where half of what constituted the “good” was the fact that we didn’t have to pay extra for it. This food though…it was fantastic.||Esto va a sonar raro (excepto para los fanaticos de la comida) pero el desayuno era sin duda el punto alto de mi dia y una de las partes favoritas de este viaje. El desayuno del hotel estaba incluido en el costo de la pieza y era increible! Cada noche tenia tantas ganas de irme a dormir porque sabia que el desayuno estaria listo solo en unas horas. Era asi de rico. Mama y papa se habian quedado en este hotel antes y me habian dicho que el desayuno era bueno, pero yo asumi que era un buen desayuno, donde parte de lo bueno era que no habia que pagar extra. Pero esta comida…fantastica!|
|The hotel staff would provide us with a tray and I would get black coffee (sorte kaffe) every day and Javi would get his Earl Grey tea. The coffee everywhere we went was delicious – it reminded me of the Dragon Tattoo series. Everyone had coffee all the time, every restaurant, even some stores offered it. It was always really strong and there was plenty of it – not the tiny espresso coffees that I would get in Spain or France. Delicious!||La gente del hotel nos daba una bandeja y yo pedia café negro (sorte kaffe en danes) todos los dias y Javi pedio un te Earl Grey. El café en todos los lugares que fuimos era delicioso – me recordaba a las serie de libros Tatuaje de Dragon. Todos tomaban café todo el tiempo, cada restaurant, incluso algunas tiendas lo ofrecian. Siempre muy fuerte y habia de sobra – no como los espresso enanitos que tomaba en Espana o Francia. Delicioso!|
|The rest of the breakfast included a hot croissant (sometimes with chocolate), various types of sandwiches (the only kind I ate every day was salami with cream cheese, guacamole and a red pepper), various kinds of yogurts (the one I always went for was the yogurt with fresh raspberries on top that I would mix in). Finally, there were different juices and milk at the end. The juices were apple and then strawberry / banana mix. I always had the apple – it was freshly juiced in the hotel and so delicious!||El resto del desayuno incluia croissants calientes (a veces con chocolate), varios tipos de sandwiches (el unico tipo que comi cada dia era el de salame con queso crema, palta y pimiento rojo), varios tipos de yogurt (el que siempre comia era uno con frambuesas frescas encima que despues yo mezclaba). Finalmente, habian diferentes tipos de jugo y leche al final. Los jugos eran de manzana y una mezcla de frutilla y platano. Siempre tome el de manzana – era hecho fresco en el hotel y muy rico!|
|I miss that breakfast!! I was really excited to savor my last breakfast the morning we left, but they didn’t have my favorite yogurt!!! I was disappointed for about two seconds and then I ate the one with strawberries, which was almost as tasty. Anyway, many thanks to the Isbens hotel for such a wonderful start to every day in Copenhagen!||Voy a extranar este desayuno!! Estaba muy emocionada de poder disfrutar mi ultimo desayuno el dia que nos fuimos, pero no les quedaba mi yogurt favorite!!! Estaba desilusionada por mas o menos dos segundos porque me comi uno de los con fruitlla y era igual de rico! Pero bueno, muchas gracias al hotel Isbens por un gran comienzo del dia en cada dia en Copenhague!|

Coffee!!!! I think I would do well in a culture that appreciates breakfast and coffee in extreme portions! Lovely post, seriously need to get to Copenhagen, you have made it sound fantastic!
