9. Factory Girl
Straight from Berlin to De Pijp, Factory Girl is a small and chic vegetarian and vegan restaurant making waves in Amsterdam's breakfast scene. Don't let the plant-based focus deter you; their spots are a testament to freshness and creativity. It's a refreshing deviation from the usual breakfast fare, showcasing unique dishes that have secured its place among our favorite spots in the city.
10. The Cottage
Transport yourself to an English haven in the heart of Amsterdam, more precisely on the east side of the city, with a visit to The Cottage. A loyal disciple of English cuisine, this charming spot is a recurrent favorite for us. Their breakfast is a must-try, and if you're there, don't miss their freshly baked scones served with clotted cream and creatively crafted homemade jams. It's a taste of England in the heart of Amsterdam.
Step into the aromatic embrace of Bakhuys, a bakery that beckons with the irresistible scent of freshly baked goods. The ambiance is inviting, offering plenty of seating with a view of their bustling bakery. Their simple and fresh breakfast menu features homemade pesto with mozzarella on spelt bread or a tantalizing tuna salad on a sourdough bun. For those with a sweet tooth, the array of pastries is a breakfast dream come true.
12. Staring at Jacob
Experience a slice of New York in Amsterdam at Staring at Jacob, a brunch haven in Oud West. The menu, brimming with mouthwatering and calorie-laden spots, promises a New York-style culinary adventure. Picture starting your day with fried chicken and buttermilk waffles, a cheesy egg hash skillet, or shrimp tacos. If you're a fan of bold flavors and hearty brunches, this is the place to be.
13. Boerderij Meerzicht
Head to Amsterdam's forest (Amsterdamse bos) for a pancake experience like no other at Boerderij Meerzicht. This pancake paradise, surrounded by scenic views, is worth the journey, whether by car or bike. Indulge in the Dutch tradition of savory and sweet pancakes. Share one with toppings like cheese and bacon, and savor another with sweet options. The Dutch ambiance adds a touch of magic and coziness to this family-friendly favorite.
With three locations throughout the city, Benji's offers a vibrant urban jungle setting for a delightful brunch experience. Each location boasts a slightly different menu, featuring a wide variety of vegan and vegetarian dishes alongside other tempting options.
