Cafe Copenhagen to close for renovations

March 13th, 2007 at 01:29pm

Cafe Copenhagen

One of my favourite cafes in Canberra, Cafe Copenhagen in Westfield Woden is the latest victim of Westfield’s “we bought the shopping centre and you have to renovate” syndrome. They will be closed for three weeks after Easter. Apparently Westfield don’t like the column structure and want it removed, they also don’t like the (rather charming in my view) wooden floor…whether this means they just don’t like that it’s starting to creak or they don’t like the look of it is yet to be determined.

I do hope that the renovations don’t tamper with the look of the cafe too much as it has a certain charm to it at the moment, and it would be a pity if it changed very much.

I do hope that Cafe Copenhagen’s friendly, busy staff enjoy the three week break, and I look forward to seeing them, and enjoying their wonderful coffee, custard tarts, apple slices, quiches and more when they reopen. I’m sure it will all taste even better after not having the option of indulging there for three weeks.

    I’m new to Canberra and working in the media and I’m finding your blogs an insightful voice about what’s happening in this town. Good work Samuel, keep it up.

    I don’t go to Woden any more.

    I added the list of places you don’t visit to the random quotes.

    The staff from Cafe Copenhagen certainly look very happy in your photo Samuel. Perhaps they are looking forward to a well deserved rest, but then again – Danish folk always seem cheerful.
    If you’re looking for a change whilst Cafe Copenhagen is renovating try the cafe in the foyer of the Canberra Eye Hospital in Symonston. A lot of my business keeps me in the Fyshwick/Airport regions but I always make my way to Symonston for my morning hit.
    Keep up the great work Samuel.

    Do they make a good creamy potato bake?

    Sorry BC, no potatoes at the Eye Hospital.
