Best Brunch In Amsterdam

Coming back from Amsterdam was a real struggle to be honest. It's definitely one of my favourite cities (I haven't been to many I'll admit but it will still be at the top) and I have already planned in my head the exact things I would do when I return - which I hope is soon! 

One of these 'things' will most definitely be finding more places for brunch. I'm not a breakfast kind of gal, in that yes I LOVE breakfast but I don't eat it at the allotted time in some eyes. My nana would call it 'Elevenses' in which her version would be tea and cake. God I love cake. 
But Amsterdam is full to the brim of the cuuuutest little cafes that are bursting with smoothies bowls, coconut lattes and sweet little homemade treats. The brunch culture here is evidently still growing which is why I have to return to try them all. 

Tell tale signs of the best cafes

- Healthy menu
- Probably have the word Vegan somewhere
- Adorn with rustic benches and vibrant instagram worthy decor.

So here are the BEST brunch spots (so far) that I stumbled upon in the lovely Amsterdam. 

1. Lavinia's Good Food

I don't even know how we found this it's really tucked away but once you're inside it's very delightful. Lavinia's brick walls and old bookshelves have a wonderful homey feel plus you will want to order everything on the menu. 

TRY: Shakshuka and Chai Latte

Find Lavinia'sKerkstraat 176, 1017 GT Amsterdam, Netherlands

2. The Avocado Show

This one was a recommendation and it did not disappoint. The Avocado Show only opened up back in November and has been a hot topic for foodies and avo lovers like myself ever since. Of course once we heard about it our curiosity led us to join the sort of long waiting list (you can't book) and our mouths salivated at the thought. Every dish comes with avocado - the burger bun, ice cream, smoothies!

TRY: Nachos, Pancakes, Heart Beet Rose toast

Find the Avocado Show DaniĆ«l Stalpertstraat 61, 1072 XB Amsterdam, Netherlands

3. Pluk

Probably the girliest cafe I've ever been to, Pluk is laiden with pastel pink cushions and whitewashed benches giving you the perfect Nordic style cafe. It also sells charming little home accessories which reflect their unique lifestyle of happiness and content. I wish I had bought something! Their menu boasts a selection of healthy dishes for breakfast and lunch and on the front counter there are many exquisite cakes with bright colours and unicorn decorations. 

TRY: Acai bowl, Pluk Breakfast, Beetroot Latte

Find PlukReestraat 19, 1016 DM Amsterdam

4. Bakers and Roasters

This cafe I never actually got to go to but it sounded so good I thought I too would recommend it. Serving all of your favourite brunch dishes (separate pages for eggs and bowls!) their menu screams tasty and hearty. They do many veggie and vegan options too which I have drooled over and I'm gutted I didn't get to go - but a great excuse to go back nonetheless!

WHAT I WOULD HAVE: Vege Brekkie or Summer Bircher Muesli, Matcha Latte

Find Bakers and Roasters: Kadijksplein 16
1018 AC Amsterdam

Eerste Jacob van Campenstraat 54
1072 BH Amsterdam
