When in Cape Town, enjoy the V&A waterfront, which is wheelchair-friendly and take a harbour cruise for magnificent views of Table Mountain and the wharf. Also, the cafes and restaurants on Long St are usually quite friendly!

Friendly, cheap café on the side of the bassin de la villette. Not too 'bobo'. Drinks are cheap, you can help yourself to snacks - chorizo, crisps, marmite (yes, really!).
In summer you can borrow a set of balls to play pétanque. Has been non-smoking for years before the smoking ban.

I love this cafe. It's a great place to stop off for coffee and cakes, or a light lunch, when you're out shopping and need a break from all the hustle and bustle. They do great sandwiches and soups but there is also a more extensive menu.

An old world cake and pastry teashop.
Although slightly expensive, this is the place to visit if you wish to enjoy Danish cakes and pastries, good coffee, real hot chocolate (with whipped cream) - wonderful on a cold day!
All set in a cosy set of cluttered rooms.
Skoubogade. Not far from the town hall square, this street is just next to Nytorv/Gammeltorv on 'Stroget', the walking street.
A splendid new coffee bar in the dynamic Vesterbro neighbourhood. Translated as "Black Coffee & Vinyl" this tiny coffee bar sells quality java to rival anywhere else as well as doubling as a record shop featuring sleazy-listening, moog-pop, electrotrash and acid-folk on vinyl.
It don't get much groovier than this, baby.

Royal Teas is a wonderful café slightly off the beaten track in Greenwich. They do wonderful hot chocolate, teas and coffees. Coffee beans are ground there and then and you can by loose tea and coffee beans there too.
All of their food is vegetarian and is fantastic - and this is coming from a committed carnivore.
It is also very good value, with prices much cheaper than Starbucks and other chains that are also to be found in Greenwich.
In addition to all of this it is in a wonderful part of Greenwich. I recommend going for a walk round Royal Hill and up towards Black Heath, you can stop off here for a nice drink on the way back.

No guide to Copenhagen can fail to mention Christania. For many years it has ranked as the most visited 'attraction' after Tivoli. In 1972 a group of people squatted in an unused military area just south of the city. They established a self-governing, independent community and it flourished. Many houses were built, businesses set up and even daycare institutions established.
Often called Europe’s greatest social experiment and with big names like Bob Dylan on the support list, Christiania is facing a bleak future. The right-wing government has shut down the famous Pusher Street, which sold hash and pot in colourful booths and is threatening to reclaim the area for development. Development meaning expensive flats and offices on the prime real estate.
Nevertheless, Christiania soldiers on. Great cafés, restaurants and one of the city’s hottest concert venues are to be found within her fences.
Located in the Christianshavn neighbourhood.
20 min. walk from the city.
