Having discovered Bakkerswinkel West on a trip to Amsterdam it was our go-to place for breakfast. Great options, friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere and even a cat to keep you company during breakfast. Simply great!

This is definitely one of the best options in Amsterdam to have breakfast, the jams are AMAZING, don't forget to buy one to take home. There are lot's of options to eat, everything always very fresh. Try also the Yoghurt. Free wifi and friendly staff. They are the best!

I love the brunch, and this is a perfect place that combines quality and price. In the centre of the city, you can choose between salty or sweet dishes. I think that everything is home made. The bread is fantastic and try the scone: a mix between a piece of bread and a cake served with tasty jams. The location... More

We found this fantastic restaurant whilst looking for lunch which wouldn't be too far from the Central Station. The area around the restaurant is 'interesting' but kind of what you might expect in central Amsterdam. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and the food is well presented as you walk past the counters. The service is attentive without being pushy.... More

Had breakfast here a couple times during my stay in Amsterdam. The food was excellent, prices reasonable, and great atmosphere. I just found the service not incredibly warm or efficient. They also had no coffee one morning which is pretty rough for a restaurant specializing in breakfast foods.

Clearly a popular spot with a queue out the door! The cakes looked incredible and the pastries we tried with their home made jams would have got this place a 5. The savoury lost it some marks though - we had the sourdough with egg and bacon, great idea but the bacon was sooo salty it was unpleasant and we... More

I stumbled upon this place while walking through the Westergasfabriek park; lots of interesting places there. Great feel in the open, airy space, with good music. Then there's the fresh baked goods, very nice (although I will agree with a prior reviewer that the "clotted cream" is not the real deal) with lots of options. Coffee was good too. I... More
