I can almost smell the bread: I love bread shops, but have never had the 
"Danish" experience. Looks wonderful.

Visiting Denmark this week, and taking pictures of course. Yesterday  
morning I walked to the local bakery with my friend. Danish bakeries  
are the best in the world. Traditionally they were family businesses,  
with the father baking the bread in the wee hours of the morning, and  
then leaving the shop in the hands of his wife and a usually also a  
young girl to help out. In fact, the traditional name of the girl  
selling bread in a bakery is "bagerjomfru", literally translated  
"baker virgin". I don't know if this one is a virgin (didn't ask...)  
but the bread we bought was delicious in any event:
