What do I like about Danish cuisine?

This is hands down the country for eating brunch. Everyone eats brunch here and it is often served late into the afternoon.
Of course North America does brunch as well, but it's different. In Canada brunch is a full breakfast, often served with homefries, pancakes with maple syrup, sausages, bacon and eggs and bread. It is usually served until 12pm, but some places do all-day breakfasts.
The Danish brunch is more varied than its North American counterpart. No brunch is the same while in Canada they are pretty much the same everywhere (I'm talking about what is served, not the quality).
Most restaurants that serve brunch in Denmark offer a vegetarian option. I never thought I would readily choose the vegetarian option, but I have never regretted it. And I love meat! The Danes are really innovative with their vegetarian brunches. That's why I like to order the vegetarian brunch - I like to be surprised.

The Danish brunch involves a combination of the following: eggs, sausages, bacon, bread and fruit. I have also seen baked potatoes, avacados, pastries, hummus and other dips, pâté, pasta, boiled eggs, pancakes, smoked salmon, cheese, jam, chocolate mousse, brownies, etc.
Regardless of whether or not you order a vegetarian platter or a non-vegetarian platter, you are always served yoghurt. I absolutely love yoghurt in Denmark as it is often topped with museli and honey.

I can't wait to try out another brunch!
