Food in Amsterdam

A homemade life Ree7

Whenever friends or family members plan a visit to Amsterdam, they always ask me for the best places to sit down and have a tasty breakfast or lunch while in the city. That is why I want to share the best food places in Amsterdam that you might want to take a closer look at. This is just a handful of places and in a few months I might have to add new food places to this little list as new restaurants pop up every now and then. Bon appétit!

I am in love with this lovely and cozy place. Ree7 is a warm and elegant Gastrobar in the heart of Amsterdam. It’s the perfect place to spend time with your mother, friends or even a handsome date. It always feels so homely and intimate, and the service is simply impeccable! I highly recommend the homemade apple pie with whipped cream, croissants with chocolate paste and the club sandwich with smoked chicken, egg, bacon, cheddar and avocado. Enjoy!

Also, they are opening another cozy place in the same street this month: Pluk, a lovely and healthy take away concept that I know I will visit a lot once it’s open. Something to look forward to this Spring!
Here’s the address: Reestraat 7, Amsterdam

De Bakkerswinkel
If you are visiting Amsterdam then you simply can’t miss breakfast or high tea at De Bakkerswinkel. The first time I walked into this cozy and incredible bakery I felt right at home. This is a place where you can relax, drink tea and eat lots of tasty food. Think freshly baked scones, fresh fruit salads and finger sandwiches. Yum! De Bakkerswinkel is a place where food is prepared with love for the traditionally made biological products and where locals come together to enjoy a delicious breakfast, brunch, lunch or high tea.
Here’s the address: Regulateurshuis 1, Polonceaukade 2, Amsterdam

De Joffers
Chic, elegant and sophisticated. That is how I would describe De Joffers. I went to this lovely little place a few times to have breakfast and if you are planning to have breakfast here while in the city, then I highly recommend the blueberry pancakes or the croissants served with jam.
Here’s the address: Willemsparkweg 163, Amsterdam. 

De Laatste Kruimel
I adore this little place. It is located very close to my university, so I spent quite a lot of time here when I still lived in the city. It is not a very well known place but it’s worth a visit (or two)! They have the most tasty homemade scones and chocolate pies so if you have a sweet tooth like me, you can’t miss this place on your city trip.
Here’s the address: Langebrugsteeg 4, Amsterdam.
