MAISON d'Angleterre

Our concept

MAISON was created out of the desire to bring the gastronomic cuisine and rarefied taste experiences of MARCHAL beyond the walls of d’Angleterre, to the streets of Copenhagen and its passersby. To give not only hotel guests, but everyone, the opportunity to take a piece of d’Angleterre home with them – be that in the form of our signature cakes, home-made jam or our very own Champagne.

We have a few seats inside – and in the summer we spread out onto Kongens Nytorv, but we are not a café in the traditional sense of the word. MAISON is first and foremost a delicacy shop, stocked daily with freshly baked cakes, pastries and other refined delicacies – perfect for bringing home in our cute cake boxes or wrapped as beautiful gifts, ideal for any festive occasion.

We also offer personalized hampers and gourmet giftboxes, and in addition to what you see in the shop, our skilled pastry chefs also prepare the most glorious cakes for special occasions like birthday parties, christenings, company events and much more.

Our history
MAISON opened its doors in December 2021, but taps into a long and proud tradition of gourmet cooking and refined pastry making at the hotel.

Almost 300 years ago at Christiansborg, which was then the residence of the Danish royal family, the daughter of the king's chef, Marie Coppy, ran around in the bustle of the royal kitchen. From a very young age, she learned all about the most beautiful delicacies and about the finer cuisine, and Marie developed into a true master of royal gastronomy.

As a young woman, she fell head over heels in love with the Frenchman Jean Marchal, who was a servant of Count Danneskjold-Laurvig and therefore had his way into the royal chambers. Together, the young couple formed a strong duo, and since they both had strong connections to the court, they obtained the grant "Tractør & Skienck for Campemangen". This was in 1755, the year of the official birth of d’Angleterre.

Marie and Jean's love for the finer points of gastronomy and supremely elegant service has been passed down from generation to generation, all the way to modern-day chefs and waiters at d’Angleterre - and it is out of this love that MAISON was born.

Today, the pink door of MAISON lights up Kongens Nytorv and promises the most extraordinary taste experiences. And it is not the first time in d’Angleterre’s long history that its desserts have been the talk of the town. In the mid-20th century, d’Angleterre housed the Desiree Pâtisserie, widely known as the best in the city - and far beyond the country’s borders.

The tradition of refined taste lives on in MAISON and we look forward to welcoming you in our pink and joyful universe at the corner of the hotel.
