Værnedamsvej, a trendy street, which runs between Vesterbrogade and Gammel Kongevej, is a blend of specialty shops, restaurants, cafes and one of the best liquor stores in town. Check out this area for French cuisine. The café Granola is popular with young people, mothers with their babies in fashionable strollers, or others who just want to hang out regardless of the weather.
While the municipality would like to close the street to incoming traffic from Vesterbrogade and Gammel Kongevej, the business owners oppose this move reasoning that that would adversely affect their economy. So a ‘tight squeeze’ continues as all types of vehicles continue to crawl up and down this bustling street. Recently, the Municipality decided to make Værnedamsvej a more 'people-friendly' street, so they widened the walkway to accommodate more seating areas for guests at various cafes and restaurants, and provided more room for bicycles.
Tullinsgade, the 'little sister' of Værnedamsvej, boasts the world’s smallest café, Verden’s Mindste Café - a cosy spot owned and run by Granola. There are just a few seats inside the cafe, so other guests gladly sit at tables and chairs on the sidewalk. This cosy niche for coffee lovers is always buzzing with activity. Across the street from the café is the bar, Larsens Plaz, where you can shoot a game of pool.
