Since 1977, Copenhagen Bakery & Cafe has been a remarkable success story - a traditional family business that has survived and thrived despite fierce competition and sweeping changes in the Burlingame business community. Many independent merchants have been forced out by chain operations, yet our business has continued to serve the local market.

In the early 70's, Ralf and his wife Shari followed in the footsteps of his Danish grandfather and uncle, both bakers, by moving to Denmark, to learn the bakery trade. In 1977 they returned to California, and, with Ralf's brother Ben, bought a former pastry shop and soda fountain on Burlingame Avenue. Although small, the shop included adequate bakery facilities and a 26-seat café.

By 1983, they jumped at the chance to expand into the space next door. This move doubled their square footage and gave them the ability to increase the bakery offerings and add a breakfast menu as well as more variety for lunch. Since then, the business has continued to grow and the bakery  and café frequently add new items. Following the Copenhagen tradition of delicious homemade foods and Danish specialties, our customers can savor our offerings in the café or bring home a wide range of exquisit baked goods. The café now serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner with an extensive menu of European and American meals.

Over the years we also became well-known in the Bay Area for our exquisite custom-made Wedding cakes, Birthday cakes, and many other specail occasion cake. From cookies to breads, petit fours to napoleons, and an extensive selection of mouth-watering pastries, Copenhagen Bakery and Cafe is the place to go for a unique and delightful variety of European specialties.
