It's a popular place, so sometimes it is quite difficult to find a good seat. But, they have an okay selection of tea and cake and enjoy the time chatting away with friends.

Decent quality for a fair price. We started with a cocktail especially made by the waiter and some snacks which was not on the menu we think (we just asked for some). Then we enjoyed a steak with side-dishes and had a Californian Pinot Noir. A very comfy vibe in the restaurant with personal service. If you can make sure... More

I had the three course menu in the restaurant part of the establisment (there is also a more low-key part with burgers and so). The staff was very good but the food not so much. Especially the main course (a braised pork piece) was not very tender and mainly fat.

Dear Guest, I am sorry to here of your dissapointment regarding your recent visit to Café Skt Gertrud. The Braised Rib of Pork which originates from the rib area of the loin is tradittionally a fattier cut of meat and the fat gives the meat more flavour and makes it more suculent, the fat goes 'hand in hand' with the...

It's just a plain old normal café (with a small restaurant in one end in the evening). But it's an ok place, ok food and nice and cozy layout. Worth a visit if you are looking for simple food or just a stop with some beverages and a break.

Best brunch in a cosy setting. Placed in the middle of Odense, and a good starting point. Good and fast service, several choiches of plates possible. Good coffee. Outside heat lamps and blankets if preferred.

We wanted good drinks and outside seating and we got both. The staff is very friendly and our beverages are lovely. Outside heat lamps make a December stop possible.

Lovely calm and well managed restaurant. Locals more than tourists; limited selection of well prepared brunch favourites. Caesar salad especially good. Reasonable prices and friendly staff.

Café Skt Gertrud is named after Saint Gertrud, Saint Gertrud lived between 625-659 at a convent in Nivelles, she was known for her compasion and sympathy for the poor, sick and travelling. In Odense in the middle of the 1400 a small chapel by "Fisketorvet" was built in honour of Saint Gertrud, the Chapel has long since been demolished, however the street where Café Skt Gertrud lies is named after the patron saint. Café Skt. Gertrud opened its doors for the first time in 1986. "Lets meet at Gertrud's" is a saying that is often heard often amongst the locals, from the early hours of the morning and until the late hours at night. In this lively atmosphere, you can enjoy beverages both hot and cold, which can be accompanied by brunch or lunch dishes from our Cafe menu, from an Organic Cappuccino together with freshly baked croissant, or a chilled glass of Chenin Blanc with a salade Niçoise. In the evening you can enjoy a selection from our à la carte menu or our menu of the month. Our Kitchen brigade strive to use local produce wherever possible and our service staff are here to assist you and give you advice with regards to your choice of wine to compliment your meal, or even a Marc de Bourgogne together with an espresso. The atmosphere in our Café is vibrant, yet at the same time relaxed and good fun. On Friday's and Saturday's we have two resident DJ's that play old school soul and disco to more or less a packed house, here you can enjoy one of our trademark G & T's or a Dark n Stormy until the early hours of the morning.
