27 March 2017


A salad is the perfect meal for lunch. It’s light and with ingredients as avocado, goat cheese and nuts, your meal is gets more en more nutritious. Followed by an energy boost for the rest of the day! You don’t feel like making a complicated salad every night? No need to, because there are many great salad spots in Amsterdam. We’ve listed our favourite salads spots in Amsterdam for you. Happy Spring!


Hartbiet: Hartbiet isn’t only a yogaschool, but also a lunch café in the center of Amsterdam. Vegetarian and healthy with fresh, organic ingredients. The salads here are a real recommendation. Tip: in the summer you can sit in their relaxed garden, so nice!

SLA: SLA is popular in Amsterdam. It already has five locations in town: on the Zuidas, at the Westerstraat, Utrechtsestraat, Middenweg and at the Ceintuurbaan. SLA has its own favourite salads on the menu, but even better: you can make your own with all the ingredients of your choice. This means a meal with only the stuff you love, yumm!

Juice & Salad: The story behind Juice & Salad is pretty funny: two farm guys established Juice & Salad to offer people from the city homemade farmer products for an accessible and healthy lifestyle. And it worked, because at the meantime they’ve opened 3 locations! In West, at the Canals and in East.
