Bows and Balloons have been open for around 2 years now and even since gorgeous photos of this place started hitting Instagram social media enthusiasts have been fawning over the incredible decor and delicious food. If you want an escape from the mundanity of life then you’ve got it here, because this place is a wonderland for grown-ups.

What’s more, this place is actually designed for people to take amazing photos. A ‘food selfie station’ is available for use, with perfect lighting, but you can take a photo pretty much anywhere in this lovely dessert spot and have it turn out perfect. Lacking a bit of light on a cold December day in Copenhagen? Don’t worry, they’ll even lend you a spotlight so that you can take some incredible photos.

Walls painted in beautiful pastel tones are decorated with beautiful features such as squares of deep pink suede that sit behind a stunning flowery swing. The owner also runs a balloon shop and her knowledge has been put to good use here, with a whole wall of balloons there to wow customers and create the perfect party atmosphere.

Then there’s another breathtaking wall, decorated entirely in shimmering tiles with a pair of pretty pink wings for you to take photos by. Candyfloss, colourful flowers, and stunning crockery decorate the tables and everything is just so perfectly put together that you can almost envision the incredible amount of work that must have gone into designing this place.

So is it style over substance here? Absolutely not! As much attention has been given to how the food tastes as has been given to the incredible decor. Whether you’re looking for sweet or savoury, you’re bound to find something that whets your appetite here.


They serve small dishes like turkey or roast beef croissants (very festive) and fancy avocado on toasted rye bread with cream cheese almonds and other delightful ingredients. You can also grab a sandwich or a salad and they taste just as good as they look (very). There are loads of veggie, vegan, lactose-free and gluten-free options to choose from.

If you fancy something sweet then prepare to be blown away (almost literally) with one of their ‘Unicorn Fart’ pancake stacks. They’re topped with chocolate sauce, berries, candyfloss and accompanied by a melted chocolate shot or a beetroot juice shot. Truly indulgence at its peak!

Latte fans will rejoice when they see the menu because there are plenty to choose from, and if you’re looking for something fizzy then you can always order a homemade lemonade or any of the other numerous alcohol-free options on the drinks menu.

You can find Bows and Balloons at Teglholmens Østkaj 69, 2450 and you need to book a table via the website, but it’s very easy to do so. At the moment you can enjoy the lovely festive decorations, and we recommend one of their deliciously festive hot chocolates, too!
