Though the Dutch cuisine itself might not be world famous, in Amsterdam you can enjoy food from all across the globe – and it’s super tasty too! From hipster breakfast spots, to street food markets and Dutch food as ‘mom’ would cook it – we’ve listed seven of our favourite foodie spots in Amsterdam.
The Best Breakfast in Amsterdam: Bakers + Roasters
If you’re a brunch or breakfast lover, Bakers + Roasters is a must. This cozy Kiwi cafe offers a delicious healthy menu, including eggs, avocado toast (of course!), pancakes, and even a full vegetarian breakfast. You can complement it with a variety of coffees and freshly squeezed juices. As you wait for one of the lovely employees to text you when your table is available, you can enjoy the amazing view of the canals… What’s not to love?
Amsterdam’s very own indoor street food market: the De Foodhallen
One of you wants Asian goodness? The other healthy veggie snacks? Head to De Foodhallen, Amsterdam’s most famous indoor street food market. You can try food from pretty much anywhere in the world, with many options for vegetarians and vegans! Yay! You can also boogie while the live music plays, there’s bands performing every week. Oh and the cocktails (especially the G&Ts) are pretty great too! And since you’re in the neighbourhood, solve our riddles all around Oud West (this area) and find more local foodie and drinks spots!

Dutch cuisine in Amsterdam? Book a table at Moeders
We love this place! Moeders is a restaurant with traditional Dutch cuisine. This small restaurant is beautifully decorated with photo frames on their walls – each with pictures of Moms in it. So, if you are looking for a cosy and informal foodie spot, head to Moeders, book a table online and have a Stamppot (mashed potato with sausage, or meatballs – veggie options available!)
