The trend has finally reached Amsterdam; The Boozy Brunch! Perfect for a lazy sunday afternoon with girlfriends or for those who enjoyed their night out a bit too much…
These are the 10 Best Spots in Amsterdam for Brunch, while enjoying a Corpse Reviver, a classy Mimosa or a good old Bloody Mary.
1. The Lobby
In the heart of Amsterdam, just a hop, skip and a jump away from Dam square, you find Hotel V, with the beautiful restaurant The Lobby. A cosy spot, almost like a living room, with a fireplace, a reading nook and great terrace outside. Because of the ‘gentlemen’s club’ interior, it kinda feels like you’re time travelling. Order some oisters, eggs benedict or the amazing Lambada strawberries, with lemon cream and honey ice cream…This is a place where you’ll linger for a long time..
The Lobby, Nes 49, Amsterdam
2. Little Collins
Almost IN the Sarphatipark, this place is perfect for sunny days. The owners are from Melbourne and love to share their Ozzie food with Amsterdam. There are a lot of great options on the menu, like 4 different Bloody Marys and a rubarb Bellini. Open from Wednesday to Sunday. On Thursday & Friday you can also enjoy dinner here.
Little Collins, 1e Sweelinckstraat 19F, Amsterdam
3. Bar Spek
Bar Spek has been one of my favorites in the west side of Amsterdam for a long time. They have amazing small pizzas, sandwiches, salads, soups and a whole lot more. In the summer you can enjoy their great terrace. If you don’t fancy any alcohol, they serve a great Virgin Melon-Orange Scroppino here. The staff is friendly and the vibe relaxed. Their G&T Fridays are also a must-visit!

4. Smokin’ Barrels
Lobsters, Burgers & More in the East of Amsterdam, at Beukenplein. This is the perfect spot for a long brunch on the weekends. The menu is extensive and offers something for everyone, like burgers, eggs, salads, lobster, toast, cocktails & special beers. All the food is prepared on ‘smoking barrels’. Run by the owners of Cafe Maxwell & Bar Bukowski.

5. Franklin Bar & Kitchen
From the guys that started Vesper, Bar 22 & ChapterTwentyOne. It’s all about New York here. On the menu you find creative interpretations of jerked chicken, corn dogs, short ribs & a divine NY cheesecake. Order a Ramos Gin Fizz, a Bloody Mary or an Espresso Martini to complete your amazing brunch. Enjoy!
Franklin Bar & Kitchen, Amstelveenseweg 156, Amsterdam
6. Bakers & Roasters
The menu of this cute spot in De Pijp, is a long list of greatness, with food like Pulled Pork Bagels, Bircher Muesli & Delicious Tortillas to choose from, it takes some time to decide what to eat! Everything is New Zealand Style with a Brazilian twist…get it:-)? You can customise your Mimosa here! Maybe you like passion fruit? New Zealand’s white wines are my favorite, so just a ‘normal’ glass of wine is also a great idea here! Delicious!
Bakers and Roasters, 1e Jacob van Campenstraat 54, Amsterdam
7. Staring at Jacob
‘It’s a brunch & bar thing’. In the West of Amsterdam, at the Jacob van Lennepkade, you find Staring at Jacob. Run by the guys from Fraîche at the Westerstraat. You can enjoy a Californian brunch here, with chicken & waffles, eggs with black beans & chorizo or buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup. But there are also lots of lighter, healthier options on the menu (gluten free). In the evening they offer small bites. Great place!
