Where to get your brunch fix in Amsterdam

February 12, 2019
Amsterdam is a foodies paradise if you know where to look, and if it’s brunch your’e after then you can’t go far wrong with anywhere on this list. From pancakes to acai bowls, you’ll find your fix.

Little Collins 

Opened by an Australian couple, Little Collins is our favourite place for brunch in the whole city. That’s right. We said it. We love the unusual twists on classic brunch dishes (like the kimchi pancake) and the huge portions will keep you going all day. We usually order the A Huevo and a Bloody Mary but there’s lots of other boozy brunch cocktails to choose from for the more adventurous.

Dignita

Our other favourite brunch spot is Dignita. This gorgeous spot is located in the old hermitage which is a stunning area to walk around after you’ve had your fill. There is also a branch in Vondel Park, perfect for a break from cycling. They have lots of delicious brunch options on an ever-changing menu which depends on the season. In summer we love the courgette hash and in winter often go for the porridge. But trust us, this is no ordinary porridge.

Bakers and Roasters 

An Amsterdam institution, Bakers & Roasters is a New Zealand style cafe with heavy Brazilian influences. The menu is full of classic brunch dishes like eggs royale and a veggie breakfast as well as more exciting options like Navajo eggs and a breakfast rice bowl. There’s a branch in de Pijp as well as one in Oost. If you don’t like to queue then we recommend you head to the Oost branch. The De Pijp one gets very busy, especially on weekends.

Coffee and Coconuts 

Set in an old movie theatre, Coffee and Coconuts has a holiday vibe (even if it is raining outside) and we love the healthy options on the menu. The green coconut bowl is especially worth mentioning. You can make a reservation from 8-10.30 am and after that its walk-ins only.

The Avocado Show 

A list of brunch places in Amsterdam wouldn’t be complete without the Avocado Show. Opened in 2016 (to global media coverage) this hyped-up restaurant serves the best avocado on toast we’ve ever eaten. Calling itself the world’s first avocado restaurant, the menu features lots of exciting avocado-based dishes a like a superfood salad, avocado on toast in varying guises and the much-instagrammed Avocado burger. There’s also a poke bowl filled with raw salmon and rice. Make sure to order an avocado smoothie too. Naturally.

Scandinavian Embassy 

This shop-come-coffeeshop-come-restaurant in De Pijp is laid-back but grown up and the crowd is always chic. We love stopping in for a browse of the clothes and a hot coffee and usually can’t resist their breakfast menu either. If you’re still trying to master the major lifestyle trend of hygge then this is the place to come and enjoy some Scandinavian pastries.

Mook Pancakes

Holland Is famous for its pancakes and Mook has taken the Dutch staple and given it a thoroughly contemporary update. The toppings are unusual and the pancakes are made from spelt flour giving them a nutritious spin. There is a branch in Central as well as the original in Oud West.

Drover’s Dog

Another Australian style restaurant that focuses on doing brunch really well. There are three branches in the city, both within easy walking or cycling distance of all the central areas. They do a boozy brunch special if you need hair of the dog and they also have a huge selection of juices and smoothies if you want to keep things a little healthier. The menu is full of brunch classics with an inventive twist.

G’s Really Nice Place

G’s was started by the team behind the Dutch streetwear brand Patta, so it stands to reason that it’s one of the coolest places to have brunch in the city. There is a small cafe in the Jordaan where you can order off a changing menu. We love how cozy it is here, or as the Dutch would say - gezellig https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gezelligheid. G’s also has a brunch boat which is a brilliant way to see the city while stuffing your face with eggs and bacon. The boat lasts for two hours and needs to be booked in advance but is well worth it. Unlike the other boat trips in the city it’s mainly local people onboard.

Lottie’s

Located in the Hoxton Hotel, Lottie’s is a visual delight. You sit in an old courtyard which has been turned into a conservatory surrounded by foliage and beautiful Dutch people. The menu is quite predictable but they do the classics well and their bloody Mary is one of the best we’ve had in the city.

Staring at Jacob

In the trendy Oud West district, Staring at Jacob is a favourite with locals and slightly off the beaten track. It’s worth seeking out through for its delicious menu that serves up brunch with a twist. There are friend chicken waffles as well as classics like avocado on toast. It has a nice laidback vibe and is the perfect place to rub shoulders with real Amsterdam residents.
