There are lots of great lunch possibilities in Amsterdam, but a few standout!
I have chosen the below restaurants because they are different than many others;
» They serve top notch food
» Excellent service, very friendly
» Good quality at reasonable prices
» Great vibe
» Inspirational design
» They all have something in common, something special on the side!

“These are the top 5 lunch spots in Amsterdam”

1. COTTONCAKE
This Concept store in the Pijp has it all! No need to travel to Paris,  Berlin, Melbourne or
New York – Cottoncake brings all influences together in one store. They put all their love in fine organic food & smoothies. Besides food & drinks you will find a mix of fashion, design & lifestyle. From lovely handmade jewelries of Mimi et Toi & Monocraft, organic creams of La Bruket, to lovely basic shirts of Samsoe & Samoe and beautiful knits of Sita Murt..
I really fell in love with this concept store; you can sit down and relax, enjoy their organic healthy food and find that special item that you have to try on and you will keep for ever.

2. PAPER PLANES
In the middle of the center of Amsterdam you will find this cute small American brunch spot with stylishly rustic interior.
Inspired by LA food –  where you will find lots of delicious options on the menu; like American pancakes, Fried eggs on toast with lamb sausages, tasty clubs & juicy burgers. The restaurant changes locations a couple of times a year so it’s a real funky pop up.
Great restaurant for breakfast, brunch, coffee and lunch where they serve incredible Bloody Mary’s!

3. BAKERS & ROASTERS

Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland are known for their great coffee shops and these two friendly owners of New Zealand & Brasil brought the caffé culture to Amsterdam.
This New Zealand style café is a very nice place where they serve fresh fruit salads, healthy juices, hot pies fresh from the oven, eggs, granola and is packed every day and we totally understand why! They do not except reservations, but it’s worth to wait.
Don’t forget to take a coffee, since their crafted coffee is a selection of Roasts from Ozone Coffee. They establish relationships with all their growers, batch roast & dispatch daily to ensure maximum taste & freshness.

4. VINNIES DELI

Are you looking for tasty & healthy lunch where they use organic, fair-trade and sustainable products?
Then Vinnies Deli is definitely the place to be for you! It’s no surprise this is one of our favorite lunch spots in Amsterdam.
It’s a small cozy lunch/coffee room where you can eat your hart out! I have two favorites on the menu: eggplant with buttermilk sauce and pomegranate, and smoked mackerel with grapefruit chutney. But they also serve delicious cakes & coffees.
Vinnies Deli is open from 7.30m in the morning and does take a killer take away and delivery.
Do you look what you see inside? All the designer furniture is for Sale!

5. GARTINE

In the hectic city you will find this ‘secret’ place, Gartine, a cute, little, cozy and lovely restaurant that is known for it’s high tea!
From the garden to your plate: The special thing about Gartine is that they produce vegetables, fruits and herbs from its own garden. Almost all products are produced locally and everything is organic. They serve high quality breakfast, lunch & high tea dishes on flower-printed china plates.
You need to make a reservation upfront since they only have 7 tables in total.
