Snaps & Rye


This Danish-influenced eatery takes its name from Snaps, the liquor; and Rye, the basis of the traditional smorrebrod – a melange of open sandwiches on rye bread.

Expect to find the likes of house-cured herring, fish and seafood atop the rye alongside akvavit cocktails and infused snaps at this restaurant that boasts sleek Scandinavian design features.

Really nice coffee place perfect for lunch. I didn't get a chance to try smorrebrod when I went to Denmark so this was my chance to try it.

The rye bread is really good and you can choose from 4-5 different toppings (I had avocado, salmon and eggs/tomato).

3 makes a good plate, I honestly think 2 would have been enough but they looked (and tasted) so delicious.

Just a warning regarding the...more

Snaps & Rye takes me back to my childhood - and I'm not even Danish! My grandmother used to serve open sandwiches on ceramic boards, and the meatballs I sampled today reminded my of my mum's cooking. We only ever had meatball sandwiches on Saturdays, made from the week's leftovers ... here they come freshly made to order, with a side order of pickled beetroot and thinly sliced cucumber...more
