Breakfast

Bakers & Roasters 
Eerste Jacob van Campenstraat 54
bakersandroasters.com

Why we like it
Want a healthy müsli bowl, eggs any style or maybe indulge in a stack of pancakes or banana bread french toast? This place has it all. To go with the food is a selection of tasty fresh juices and good coffee. Don't save this place for last, 'cause you'll want to come back.

Why we like it
Best mocca in town even though it's not on the menu, they know their V60 and we like the vibe and interior. The location is brilliant for a shopping/sightseeing break.

pizza

De Pizzabakkers - Pizza & Prosecco
Haarlemmerdijk 128 / Overtoom 501
depizzabakkers.nl

Why we like it
Amazingly crispy crust and loads of flavour in these pizzas. Combining pizza and prosecco is a great idea too. We like the one in Overtoom for the relaxed atmosphere.


burger

Burgermeester
Albert Cuypstraat 48 / Erlandsgracht 130
burgermeester.eu

Why we like it
Juicy burgers with whole grain buns, both classic flavors and monthly variations with fun toppings. You can also choose the slider combo, where you pick three burgers from the menu that you get as sliders rather than full size. Great way to taste more than one!


beer

Beer Temple 
Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 250
beertemple.nl

Why we like it
Maybe not the hippest or most glamorous venue in Amsterdam, but the selection of beers on draft is great. Plenty of bottles are available too. Lean back in a big leather chair or in a cosy both, beer in hand, or sit at the bar where you can pick the brain of knowledgeable bartenders. Oh, and they have beer brownies on the menu.

wildcard

Foodhallen 
Hannie Dankbaarpassage
foodhallen.nl

Why we like it
A food court in an old tramshed is right up our alley. Get a table in the center of the court, grab some dutch beers and eat your way 'round, one stand at a time. We had hot dogs, banh mi, summer rolls, chicken skewers and more, all delicious. 

 

CT coffee & coconuts 
Ceintuurbaan 282-284
ctamsterdam.nl

Why we like it
Three-story cafe in an old cinema, but it is still intimate somehow. Works just as well for breakfast or lunch as for dinner or drinks. Great menu and food that is as tasty as it is good looking. Need a place to chill for a few hours? This is it.
