If you are in Amsterdam and you want to have lunch, where do you go? On this list of 25 nice places to have lunch in Amsterdam you will find a nice lunchroom.
1 Jacob Staring at Jacob
A tough brunch tent with tough food. As the waffles with grilled chicken and spicy sauce. Irresistible. You have a hangover? Here you need to be. But also for healthy food.
Jacob van lennepkade 215
2 Vinnies Deli
A real treat for people who likes healthy food. The salads are always fresh and tasty and the bread with toppings equally. And we haven’t even talked about the coffee and sweets…
3 De Wasserette
At a corner in the middle of the Pijp you will find de Wasserette and it is packed weekends after weekends. It is also such a damn fine spot to watch people on a square that is bustling.
Eerste van der Helststraat 27
4 The Breakfast Club
All-day-breakfast, that’s what you expect at The Breakfast Club and that is what you get. Ideal if you come out of your bed late. Even at 4 pm here is still yoghurt, pancakes or a fried egg.
5 Rijks Restaurant
Everything, but then everything is dilicious and the dishes are all works of art. Chef Joris Bijdendijk knows what everyone wants. Tip: drink a coffee in the garden cafe, the ‘ Jardin des Tuileries ‘ of Amsterdam.
6 G’s Really Nice Place
Cool people hiding here in the weekends, during the brunch hours. They stay a long time at the small but fine terrace and enjoy also a bloody mary – where G’s is known for.
7 Restaurant de Plantage
Visit this place! Not only the building is fantastic, the food is so yummy. It doesn’t matter what you order. Make a reservation, otherwise you stand in line. But even then: it is worth waiting.
Plantage kerklaan 36
8 Lavinia Goodfood
A small tent hidden on the Kerkstraat. Just a living room, with salads of forgotten organic vegetables and cakes without gluten and sugar. And tasty juices.
9 Bufette van Odette
This is always on the list. Okay, it is always chock full and crowded. But the eggs and the salad bar are like nowhere else.
10 Bar DK
Brand new, this drink and lunch spot. They have especially exciting snacks and wines for later in the afternoon. But the lunch is also very tasty. Spending a day here is absolutely no penalty.
Tweede Helmersstraat 26
11 Pluk Amsterdam
Also farm fresh and also one that is going to make it. Pluk is a new coffee & lunchbar / interior design shop, which serves healthy dishes. Very cosy and nice.
12 Beter & Leuk
Paleobrood, gluten-free pizza, fresh soups? Exactly, another healthy toko. But a very good one. For which you must visit it for: the pies.
Eerste Oosterparkstraat 91
13 Canvas op de 7e
Lunch on this huge nice roof terrace with amazing view is simply a must.
They are here for a while, but before they settled here permanently, Bake cooked throughout Amsterdam. Now they serve both lunch and dinner and here you can choose between 3 or 4 course and let they surprise you.
Van diemenstraat 410
15 Morgan & Mees
Oh, what are we happy with Morgan & Mees. A real mega fine place to be. Lots of sunshine during the day on a small terrace and that is scarce in Amsterdam.
Second Hugo de Groot Street 2
16 Coffee & Coconut
Good food, nice people, perfect coffee: what more do you want?
For when you just don’t feel like to eat a salad or a sandwich. There serve spicy seafood noodle soup and rice bowls and you can choose for a beef or chicken and some Japanese snacks. Sounds good? Is it too.
Albert cuypstraat 2-6
It is most common as a healthy takeaway, but you can also sit and eat at Stach on the Van Woustraat Stach. What you definitely should order? The Meatball with truffle mayo!
Van Woustraat 154
19 Paper Planes
There are not many good lunch spots right in the Centre of Amsterdam. Paper Planes is one: in the middle of the Rokin, a hipsterhangout with Chesterfield sofas and indoor plants.
20 Juice Brothers
Besides extremely healthy juices they have here also salads, for example with Kale, for real healthfreaks.
Van Woustraat 151
21 Croissanterie van Wou
Here you will find authentic Moroccan pancakes, which people prefer every day. Especially when they have been in Morocco. You know, with those holes (Beghrir) or the crispy (Lemsemen). All pancakes and biscuits are freshly prepared by the Moroccan family who prepares it in the kitchen.
Van Woustraat 177
For a good salad that is prepared with love, you go to Venkel. What a huge amount of different combinations!
Albert Cuypstraat 22
23 Hotel V
We say one thing: flammkuchen! Correct. That razor-thin pizzas that are actually no pizzas. In the lobby of Hotel V you order them.
24 Art Deli
Art Deli is a cool Art Gallery, creative meeting point and a cool lunch spot in one. This place, which you would expect in New York or London, is situated in a beautiful building in the Centre of Amsterdam and serves ‘ culture bites ‘. Niceness!
25 Scandinavian Embassy
Most people come here for the sublime coffee, but the lunch menu with Scandinavian influences is also certainly not wrong. Light, healthy dishes especially stand out. Order for dessert the carrot cake, a taste sensation!
