These are the nicest hotspots on the Wibautstraat in Amsterdam east!

The Wibautstraat is one of the most fun streets in East and we love to go there! Of course we were already fan of the Wibautstraat because of the Volkshotel and Canvas, but this is also the right place to go to for food & drinks. Think of hotspots such as The Breakfast Club and Benji’s. The Wibautstraat is hot. Therefore we selected 13 x the best hotspots on the Wibautstraat in Amsterdam!

9 x food & drinks at the Wibautstraat in Amsterdam

Benji’s: a delicious all day breakfast spot with an urban style with lots of steel, concrete and green touches. At this coffee spot they have also delicious breakfast and lunch dishes, such as a yogurt bowl with banana, strawberry and granola. So good!
Restaurant C: If you feel like treating yourself during a night out, Restaurant C is your place to be. Here you go to for upscale dining and delicious cocktails!
Canvas op de 7e: the rooftop restaurant of Volkshotel. In summer, this is a popular spot thanks to the sunny terrace (with views over the city). But inside there’s also a nice atmosphere and the food is great!
Stek: Stek is primarily known as breakfast and lunch spot. But did you know that this is also a cool place for sundowners? Perfect with a food plateaux or Dutch ‘bitterballen’.

The Breakfast Club: here you get the best pancakes and yoghurts for breakfast. And just like their location on the Haarlemmerplein you can also go here for drinks!
Drovers Dog 3: an Australian hotspot with a chill vibe. And you can eat there all day!
The Commons: the restaurant in the old building of our beloved Trouw and part of The Student Hotel. Here you can go for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Nest: okay, not officially on the Wibaut but this place is too good not to mention. In a very cool and green setting – a rooftop with a perfect view – you can enjoy your favourite drinks here!

YourLBB's newest lists

1 x shopping at the Wibautstraat in Amsterdam

Itemz: feel like shopping? Itemz is a nice interior, vintage and giftshop.


Volkshotel: eating, sleeping and partying at the Volkshotel in Amsterdam East! This design hotel with an industrial look has it all… a cafe for lunch and coffee, work spots for freelancers, a restaurant, club and even a spa with hot tub and sauna on the roof!
The Student Hotel: another hotel that offers all under one roof. Not only can you have an overnight stay in one of the cool rooms, you can also bring your laptop and work in one of the cosy corners, have breakfast or dinner or go to the gym!

Club Canvas: Club Canvas is located on the roof of the Volkshotel. Up to 11 PM, this is restaurant Canvas. But after 11 PM the tables go to the side and the DJ takes over the turntables!


Make sure you visit Beter & Leuk as well for a delicious healthy vegetarian and gluten free lunch! It’s in a side street of the Wibautstraat and is definitely a must visit!
