Food & Drink {Culinary Amsterdam}

Posted on

Are you looking for restaurants and cafes for Amsterdam? In this article on our travel blog, we share our tips with you!

One thing we particularly appreciate about Amsterdam is the countless small cafés that you can find in the tiniest alley finds. The owner quickly puts a wooden bench in front of the door and the sidewalk café is ready – so beautifully uncomplicated, simple and personal. So honest, simple and yet so cozy. Where did the coffee taste particularly good? Read on…

Villa Zeezicht Torensteeg 7, 1012 TH Amsterdam
You have to try the apple pie, absolutely! We found the coffee only average in comparison, but this apple pie – great! You can also sit outside and marvel at the hectic mix of pedestrians, cyclists and cars.

Caffe Il Momento Single 49 ), 1015 AJ Amsterdam

We walked past this cafe quite by accident and immediately stopped there for a second breakfast. The café is right on the Singel and from the wooden bench outside you can watch people go by – you have to know, this is one of our favorite things to do. The cappuccino is incredibly good!

Mem´s Eerste Jacob van Campenstraat 27-H, 1401 BC Amsterdam
The giant chrome espresso portafilter machine and the professional music system allow the preferences of the owner to be recognized immediately. The crowd falls into the hipster/nerd/alternative category and if you didn’t know better you might think you were in the middle of Berlin-Friedrichshain. The coffee is probably the best we’ve had in all of Amsterdam and we also really like the atmosphere in this avenue-like street. Clear recommendation!

Greenwoods Single 48-3, 1012 VG Amsterdam // Keizersgracht
, 1017 DK Amsterdam

You can have a very tasty and cheap lunch at Greenwoods. There are mainly salads, soups and “open sandwiches”, i.e. generously topped, homemade bread. The latter are really highly recommended. It’s nice to sit outside when the sun is shining, but it’s also cozy inside.

Burgermeester Albert Cuypstraat 49, 1072 CV Amsterdam

If you like burgers, you must try the Burgermeester ones. The mini trio, where you can taste your way through the menu, is highly recommended. Yummy! If you go to the restaurant at the Albert Cuypmarkt, then be sure to get freshly baked “stroopwafel” from the market for dessert!

Roos en Toos Herengracht 309 1016 AV Amsterdam

We had lunch at Roos en Toos on our last day and absolutely loved it. There are mainly soups, sandwiches and salads here. The Thai lentil soup was really excellent! Also, the atmosphere is great!

Anything else? If you’re looking for something nutritious in the red light district, you can try your luck at Bird Thai Snack bar (Zeedijk 27, 1012 AS Amsterdam) try. The restaurant is tiny, seats are rare. The Tom Kha Gai soup was too sweet, but the curry tasted delicious. And please leave the Pasta Pasta (Warmoesstraat 49 , Amsterdam) on the left. We found the Vapiano-like concept very appealing at first, but unfortunately the low price is reflected in the quality.
