Instant coffees are decent for that morning caffeine boost you need but coffee connoisseurs would beg to differ. The culture believes that drinking coffee should be an experience. Everyone should experience freshly brewed coffee that is layered with flavours which takes you through an aromatic journey filled with satisfaction.

On top of that, an added bonus is when you pair it with the right savory or sweet food to complement the experience. What’s more if it’s made in house offering you a special touch to it. Which is why we have taken the opportunity to sample out some cafes and narrowed down the ultimate ones that serve a good cuppa and something extra for the tummy.

Once you’ve made your coffee decision, gaze your eyes towards their sandwich menu. Their all time best-seller, the Egg Sando served on in-house sourdough-brioche bread definitely got us egg-cited. Filled with scrambled eggs, chives, dill, celery, and stuffed with extra soft boiled egg bulging out by the side. This is not your ordinary egg sandwich.

Feeling something sweet? Opt for their Nut Butter Jelly sandwich. It’s made with in house almond, cashew, and coffee butter spread onto their seeded sourdough. Spread together with chocolate and blueberry jam that is house made as well and topped with candied walnuts. Just savour every bite.

Go and indulge yourself with the ultimate in house goodness from VCR Stacks!

Serving you espressos in multiple ways, you get to choose what kind you’re feeling on that day. House blend, single origin, cold brews, pour over, aeropress, or filter. You pick your booster. Famous for their signature beverage such as their Dominator, a refreshing coffee mocktail that’s made complex with zesty sour flavour mixed together with a shot of espresso shaken over ice. It’ll leave you wanting more.

As for the food? A whole menu inspired by Danish goodness that hits close to home (if you’re from denmark too obviously). Order their wholesome dish of the Danish Breakfast. A combination of housemade rye bread, topped with bananas on one slice and avocados and tomatoes on the other. House made granolas and greek yogurt are served on the side too.

Go for something savoury if you’re up for it. Their wholemeal pumpkin seed bread filled with delicious tuna mousse garnished with sliced cherry tomatoes and onions. This is one of Kopenhagen’s specialty as well.
