Restaurant Schønnemann

Restaurant Schønnemann is located at Hauser Plads in Copenhagen.

Restaurant Schønnemann has been serving herring, snaps and other traditional Danish food and drinks since 1877, making the restaurant one of the oldest, still-existing eateries in Copenhagen. Schønnemann is an acclaimed lunch restaurant, serving Danish smørrebrød and other traditional lunchtime dishes in a class of its own - of course accompanied by a well-known draft beer and snaps in all sorts of variations.

Pure nostalgia

The long history and nostalgia are clearly felt when you step inside the atmospheric premises. At Schønnemann there are dark woodwork, dark green walls, white tablecloths, petroleum lamps and paintings in golden frames - All together in true 19th century style.

If you take a look at the menu you will come on a journey back to your grandmother's time. On the menu you will find a wonderful mix of classic and freshly prepared lunch dishes, and more than 110 different pieces of freshly baked smørrebrød (open faced Danish sandwiches) are served daily, cold and delicious.

Homemade food and all kinds of snaps

All dishes are homemade with the best ingredients and the sandwiches are always freshly made. In the kitchen, ecologically produced meat, chickens and dairy products are used as a matter of course.

The great focus on quality is also reflected among the reviewers' praises - for example, Børsens reviewer, Ole Troelsø Schønnemann, calls it Denmark's best lunch restaurant. Likewise, Den Danske Spiseguide has appointed the restaurant for the 'Lunch Restaurant of the Year' in both 2014 and 2015 as well as Schønnemann's lunch was named 'The Best of the City' at - just to name a few of the great awards and reviews.

In a true old fashioned manner, the good sandwiches should of course be enjoyed with a snaps. At Schønnemann you will find more than 140 specially selected Danish and foreign snaps, aquavit and genevers that are poured all the way to the edge and served temperate or easily cooled.

New owners

By 2015, Schønnemann got new owners. It was the restaurateur couple Juliette and Thomas Gaam Rasmussen who took over the show and today they are working on continuing the traditions and ensuring the high quality.
