“Green Oasis in the Dessert of Carnivores”
Review of Landmad Dk Grena - CLOSED

Landmad Dk Grena
Price range: US$8 - US$39
Cuisines: Danish
Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 August 2015

A trip out of the capitol can be an grim adventure for an inner city native Copenhagener. Especially, if he as I also is a rather strict vegetarian, borderlining vegan. Travelling out of the bigger cities of Denmark drastically reduces the possibities to find actual vegetarian alternatives - and even though things have improved over the last decade even Copenhagen is really lagging behind other European cities like Berlin or London. This summer's family trip to the heart of Jutland was no different.

But then, after several days of deeply depressing hotel buffets and underwhelming café menus - this place. In Grenaa of all places.

Landmad (roughly translates to Rural Food) is a very charming organic oasis in the middle of nowhere - well, actually, in the middle of downtown Grenaa - and it's a knock out. I can't absolutely write off, that the previous days of culinary famine clouded my impression of this place - but it came across as a slice of vegetarian heaven in an otherwise desolate dessert of embolism provoking eating options.

The store holds both a very well assorted organic supermarket and a cozy café - and they do both very well. The sandwiches are fresh, the coffee newly grounded and even though it's not exactly cheap - it's easily competitive with cafés and restaurants in town. I would have gladly paid double up by time I found the place:-)

Just to clarify - you don't HAVE to be a vegetarian to enjoy this place. I'm aware that organic places sometimes can feel too expensive for too little - but this isn't the case with Landmad. It's just plain old quality food served (or sold) by smiling forthcoming people.

Landed is a oasis worth traveling for if you're 'caught' in the carnivore wasteland - I will be passing by many times in the future on my travels through Jutland to stock supply.

After walking around the shopping streets in Grenaa, we stopped by Landmad for lunch. The front part is the store where local produce is displayed and sold, while the back is where you can find tables. Just a few tables inside the same room as the store and counter, with more tables in a separate room for eating – and even more seating in the spacious backyard.

There´s a lot of food on display in the store, but we were hungry and went straight for the menu. There are a few sandwiches, salads and dishes available – all made from local products. We settled on the chicked salad and the farmer´s plate (5 different selections on a plate), and found a seat in the backyard.

The atmosphere is lovely, with the small-town / local tavern feeling being clear from the moment you walk in the door. The staff are super-nice, and our experience was that they loved to chat about the products and the concept – which they seem to alone about in this Danish town. There are plenty of windows where you sit, allowing lots of daylight and an open feel to the restaurant side of Landmad.

The food, then, was a delight from beginning to end. Fresh, tasty ingredients that were just what you hope to find in a locally supplied kitchen. The salad and tasting plate let all the great flavours shine, with room for everything used to stand out. This meal had me thinking that we were on a trip in this area, tasting the region´s best offers on the food side.

I´d stop by Landmad in a heartbeat when visiting Grenaa again, with the combination of excellent food, a friendly staff and ditto surroundings – and with prices I found to be totally on par with other places to eat in this town.

This is cosy place: a grocery shop with all kinds of food directly from the countryside. In the back (as well as outside) there is an opportunity to enjoy coffee and cakes as well as other good stuff from the shop. The quality of what we had was very good. The price likewise a bit on the expensive side.

This place is a rare find in Denmark that truly stands out and deserves a remark. Landmark.dk hosts both a unique shop with local products and delicateses as well as a cafe with delicious offers.

You can find frozen meats from animals that have grassed nearby, vegetables, marmelades, icecream, coffee (obviously not local though), freshbaked bread, beer, sodas, cheese, sausages and and and.... Everything looks as if it is fresh and made with love.

The cafe is really "hyggelig" (cosy) and in sunny weather the backyard garden is absolutely worth a visit (when I was here, they had cool live music playing)... The menu is similar to ordinary cafes (sandwiches and salads) but the products are miles better! Best cake and coffe that I've had in a long time...
