Farm Cafe in Houstrup

Lately, I spent a weekend in Denmark and if I can make it, I always try to go to the Farm Cafe. I love the place. The location, the people the cake .. and yes, the coffee. I say this because of the Facebook post of a friend of mine. She posted that in Italy you can have ridiculous good coffee wherever you go and I absolutely agree. But then someone else answered saying they would need that in Denmark. and that made me think… maybe the quality of the coffee itself in Italy is without competition, but I had a few of the best coffees of my life in Denmark and that was not about brewing temperature, coffee beans, arabica or robusta etc.

one was in klittmøller, 6 o’clock in the morning, we were travelling all night, totally exhausted and the guys from the fish store just opened and offered us black filtered coffee with milk and lots of sugar. guys, I tell you sitting in the cold in the van’s back, watching the sun rise over the north sea holding the hot coffee in the hands… there is no Italian coffee in the world that could have been tasted better in that moment.

And after 2 weeks in a van at the north end of Denmark, making kind of coffee on a camping cooker, we found the Farm Cafe … cake and coffee, not Italian style, but hot and made with love and just the right thing for that kind of cake and waffles (i just can’t imagine waffles with ice cream and hot cherries with cappuccino). and since then, there was not one Denmark trip without a visit to the Farm Cafe.

UPDATE 2020:

Over the last years I have been visiting the Farm Cafe every year and so have many of you. I still get many emails about the Farm Cafe. Unfortunately with the great success things have changed. It has lost its charm. It still is one of the very few places there where you could have a coffee and cake (unfortunately the same over and over, in the beginning therey hace variations and absolut amazing Sandkage. Not only did it become so busy that one doesn’t get a place but also it became very …. aufgeräumt (tidy, neat in the sense from opposite from little charming treasure) and it is not only Corona. I will leave this post here because it is not only about the farm cafe.

Just back from a great time in Denmark and it is the first time since at least 15 years that I haven’t been there. I drove past every day and couldn’t be bothered. Interior photography hope it will be again a great place and I still think you should go.
