Amsterdam for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and a cheeky snack

Breakfast | Mook Pancakes

Why go? Stacked 3 high, their pancakes are covered in maple syrup and coconut shavings. It’s the best way to wake up in Amsterdam. Expect a queue after 9:30

Brunch | Ted’s

Why go? If you hardly slept from the night before, Ted’s all-day brunch is your remedy. Try the group Bloody Mary.

Lunch | Le Plantage

Why go? Head here for the best priced lunch in Amsterdam. The tartines on sourdough bread are €8. Take your pick from smoked salmon and beetroot, lemon marinated chicken with tzatziki and my favourite, bavette steak, mozzarella and pine nuts.

Dinner | Jansz at The Pulitzer

Why go? One of the best meals I’ve ever had. I came here for my birthday and had the scallops to start and lobster risotto for my main. Have a cocktail in the Pulitzer Bar before to get things going.

Snack | Van Stepele

Why go? Why are Van Stepele’s freshly baked cookies the best in the world? Because they only offer one kind and that’s it. Take it or leave it. Expect a queue at all times.
