The Ilse Crawford-designed Cafe And Dessert Bar Making Waves in Copenhagen
Transforming the way we perceive the craft of edible sweets, Winterspring is a Nordic cafe and dessert bar situated in the heart of Copenhagen “celebrating the simple joyfulness of sharing seasonal produce and innovative Nordic ice creams” explains founder Karina Schmitt Lund.

Here at Winterspring, an impromptu meal can be the most memorable.
