So PIQNIQ refers to a variety of small dishes of which you can choose from, just like a picnic in the country. At PIQNIQ you are invited to choose from our variety of small sweet & savory dishes and enjoying them in our nice natural restaurant in a typical golden age Amsterdam surrounding while looking at the life on the street, reading a newspaper/magazine/book or take pleasure in a conversation with your table companion(s).At PIQNIQ we serve breakfast, lunch, coffee and tea with sweet bites, fresh juices, smoothies, a quality glass of wine and cold beers.

Awesome place to enjoy a nice fresh cooked breakfast or lunch. I went with the italian sandwich, club sandwich, and esparagus soup. It didn't disappoint. The portions are a bit small, but perfectly fine for an early or late lunch. Wait staff was extremely helpful and I will gladly come back

It was for lunch and my friend and I decided to sit at the table outside. At outside table, each chair came with a nice blanket so we used it and it was really nice! (it was a kind of chilly afternoon in mid June). We had 2 item + drink lunch from the menu. The waitress told us that... More

Great finding. Can't think of anything not to like about this place. Great food and fresh drinks for a small price. Easy to walk here after waiting an hour to get into Anne Frank house ;)

After 4 years living in Amsterdam, this continues to be one of my favorite places ever. The food is always fresh, wholesome and never disappoints. Buttery, flakey crossants hot out of the oven, amazing soups and salads, perfect coffee and delicious tiny quiches - they make the perfect, lazy breakfast or lunch. The atmosphere is low-key and relaxed, and the... More

We had a lovely afternoon tea here on a friday. Service was great, seating was available, we only paid 10 euros for two and the cakes were delicious. Great tea selection too. A very clean and welcoming place in one of the best areas of Amsterdam.

We found Piqniq by chance, but it was love at first sight! Beautiful simple decor and a very easy and tasty formula: pick two or three things from the menu and pay less that 10 euros :) Portions are small, but the courgette soup was soooo tasty! Staff was very friendly and helpful and our little meal was absolutely delicious!

Little venue with great welcome. Really felt like a little picnic on a plate, mini quiche was gorgeous and so fresh. The whole experience was a delight.

After being awake from 2am to travel to Amsterdam, we arrived at PIQNIQ in a rather jaded state. However the lovely service and great food perked us all up. You choose from a small selection of sandwiches and soups and they come together as light bites - making up your picnic. We had the soup (very good) and a selection... More

My friend and I got a quick sandwich and salad to-go. It wasn't jaw-dropping but I have no complaints whatsoever.
