I had no idea who this man was but I got the sense that he was someone I should know (or at least, know of). Famous people have that air about them - sometimes they carry themselves with an aura of 'you must know who I am' but other times it isn't their behaviour but what they inspire in others: the nervous giggles and blushes; the body language of mortals in the presence of greatness.
Well, as I had no clue as to the fame (or infamy) of my fellow coffee drinker, I continued to simply observe as the anthropological drama played itself out. Its essence was lost on me. I wouldn't suggest that anyone visit Det Rene Brød in the hope of a celebrity spotting - go for the coffee and for the pastries - you won't be disappointed. And if are lucky enough to find the place quiet, then the experience will be complete.
Det Rene Brød prides itself first and foremost on its organic bread and pastries, which, it promises, are better for you and for the environment. The coffee is not the main attraction but it plays a perfect accompaniment and is reasonably priced.
Cost: a double shot cappuccino costs 27 DKK
