Feeling hungover? We know the cure, and it’s spelled B-R-U-N-C-H. Not an early bird? Head out for an afternoon brunch at Bakers and Roasters! A Kiwi café located in De Pijp and Centrum, with a menu offering you nine different kinds of eggs, stacks of blueberry pancakes with mapel syrup and amazing coffee. Not to mention, afternoon cocktails.

People from near and far flock together to sample the wares of Amsterdam's most talented food and beverage merchants. Introducing De Foodhallen (that's The Food Hall if you can't quite piece that together). An old tram depot converted rustic eatery is one of the city's most popular venues to kick back and enjoy a cold drink (or five) and some tasty food.
Ready for a short escape from the buzzing neons and bustling streets of the Red Light District and Leidseplein? Then we got you covered.
In contrast to the historical and charming buildings in Amsterdam Centraal, the free five minute ferry over to the North side of Amsterdam brings a cutting-edge vibe filled with cool street art, warehouses and amazing waterfront terraces.
Take the ferry from Amsterdam Centraal over to NDSM Wharf and enjoy a beer or a delicious lunch in the sun at Pllek, a perfect hotspot for Spring and Summer! Prices are reasonable, varying from €6 to €15 for a tasty lunch.
Afterwards, have a stroll around this part of the city while enjoying some cool street art created by the public.
P.S. don’t be surprised if you end up dancing around a bonfire with local hippies in one of the many hidden gems ;)
