Homely atmosphere at Mirabelle

It’s busy in the mornings in Guldbergsgade, when Copenhageners on Nørrebro collect their coffee and croissants at Mirabelle Bakery en route to work. However, the shop also serves Italian-inspired dishes in very pleasant surroundings during the rest of the day.

The bakers know their craft and the raw ingredients are home-grown at Mirabelle. At the back of the room, customers can see into the bakery, where the fresh bread and pasta are made. Green plants, flour and bottles of olive oil and wine reflect the focus on good-quality raw ingredients.

The layout is very informal, with different-sized tables and bar stools at the counter. The floor is distinctive and eye-catching, with a bold black and white pattern. The lamps are different however, although they are mostly white, and can be moved around as needed. The exterior wall is exposed brick with simple wood shelves. The rustic, soft look extends to the ceiling with its Troldtekt acoustic panels in natural wood. 

The interior design was conceived by ATM Design, which has a knack of combining the refined and the rustic to create warm and inviting environments. The sense of authenticity is also elegantly enhanced by the interior, with recycled materials and the sustainable Troldtekt acoustic panels tying in well with the shop’s strong focus on quality, organics and local raw ingredients.
