these are our favourite places for brunch in amsterdam
In the weekend we love to have brunch in Amsterdam with friends. Sometimes in the weekend when you finally can sleep in, you have no time for breakfast but it’s still a bit early for lunch. The perfect moment to bike to the city and go to one of the many hotspots to chill and just enjoy the weekend. Time for brunch! That’s why we put together the 26 x best hotspots for brunch in Amsterdam!
Tip: we’ve brought a new list to life because a lot of the time we’re one of the first to find out about new spots, but not a lot of information is known: ‘Coming Soon‘. In this list you’ll find the new spots that you can go to soon. We will of course keep you updated about their opening dates.
