Description: PIQNIQ: for your breakfast, lunch & high tea in the Jordaan area in Amsterdam PIQNIQ as in picnic? Yes, something like that. PIQNIQ is derived from the French word for picnic; pique a nique. Pique means 'choose or pick something' while nique stands for 'a litlle something' means. 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.

“Simply Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

Having read the menu before arriving, we though we'd try this place for lunch, and it was lovely.

You have various choices of sandwich, BLt, salami, cheese etc as well as quiche, soup and a greek salad. You can choose two of the choices and a drink for about ?8 or three for around ?10.

Opted for the BLT and the soup, with a chai tea latte, and they were delicious. Just the right amount in terms of portion size, and really light and fresh. My girlfriend had the BLT and greek salad which she really enjoyed too.

Might have to pop back for lunch on our last day!

“Fantastic little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

When looking for lunch without breaking the bank we found Piqniq. It's a great little cafe and serves meals as if they were indeed picnics. You can choose three dishes that are served together. The food and service are both excellent.

“Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We found this restaurant when we decided to visit the Saturday markets. We then went back for the next three mornings of our visit. Small servings but prices were too! Great variety for breakfast or lunch. Croissants amazing and all dishes hand made and exquisite.

“Treasure in the Jordaan-Simply Scrumptious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We stayed 8 days in the Jordaan area and ate breakfast at the Piqniq on day 6. It was so delicious we ate there again two days later on our last day in Amsterdam (April 13th). The pastries are BIG on taste but are deliciously flakey and light. The baguettes just "melt in your mouth", so fresh it rivals the best we had in Paris. Omelettes are light and fluffy.
When I ordered green tea, she suggested I try the Lemongrass green tea, she said she liked it. I did and she was so right - just as anyone who wanted a great meal would be so right to stop for a wonderful meal at a very very reasonable price.
