Nature [Forest] Café

A friend of mine arranged a surprise getaway to this pretty little cafe by the forest - called Nina's Natur Café. This cafe is located - well, in the middle of the fields beside a forest ... a really peaceful and remote place. We followed a traditional map, and took some wrong turns in the small roads - If you do not get lost, it should take about 30 minutes to drive to the café from Copenhagen). 

However - maybe because of the beautiful and faraway location, and due to the most delicious cake buffet the owner Nina serves - the cafe has become well-known and popular.

When Dalai Lama was visiting Denmark, Nina's Natur Café was one of the few places he wanted to experience (a fine photo of the owner Nina and Dalai Lama was framed on the wall of the cafe).

The cafe was before a old farm, with a traditional thatch roof. You can sit down and enjoy your coffee and cake either inside the house, or in the charming orangerie, or out in the garden in the back of the house. From the garden you can follow the paths leading to the forest, and take a walk in the forest.

After a lovely afternoon and a walk in the forest, it so happened that we took a wrong turn on our way back home ... and found this little spot, where a local farmer sold fresh berries and vegetables. There was a tiny box, where you could leave the payment - or you could pay using mobile pay. I bought some strawberries and rhubarb - and left the money to the box.

It is wonderful to notice, that this type of paying - like in the old days - still exists today. Leaving the coins and bills to an unlocked box demands trust to fellowmen - and it warms one's heart to experience things like this!

I'm thankful for friendships and the small surprises, taking a wrong turn (getting lost) often times brings into our lives,

Nina xoxo
