My sister and I went for a whole weekend in Amsterdam and I thought it would be a great idea to gather all of my food spots into one article. I also added the two museums we went to (because they were very cool) as well as the hotel we slept in.
- Pluk Amsterdam (tested & approved)
I have been wanting to go to Pluk for ages. Just have a look at their Instagram account and you will understand why.
From smoothie bowls to avo toasts, Pluk serves the perfect breakfast combo! But what they are best known for, are their mouthwatering pastries that absolutely no one can resist!
Do not miss their little shop, where you can find loads of cute accessories (bowls, cups, iPhone cases, …)
- Juice Brothers
If you are craving vitamines, go grab a cold-pressed juice at Juice Brothers located in “De Pijp”. Plus, the acai bowls and raw vegan treats look a m a z i n g.
- Bakers & Roasters
We wanted to go for an afternoon snack at Bakers & Roasters but unfortunately, the café closes at 4 pm! We were quite disappointed when we saw all those delicious cakes on the counter…
But I would definitely recommend this place for breakfast or for lunch. They serve pancakes, burritos, poached eggs, …
- Mook Pancakes
There are a lot of pancake places in Amsterdam, but this one grabbed my attention. They have so many different types of pancakes: sweet, savory, made of oat flour or spelt flour, gluten free, vegan, organic, …
- Sla (tested & approved)
We arrived super hungry in Amsterdam and Sla proved to be the perfect place to satisfy our hunger.
This cute little (we almost missed it lol) restaurant serves HUGE organic salad bowls, that you can either compose yourself or select from the menu. Tasty, filling and nutritious. What else could we ask for?
- Lavinia Good Food (tested & approved)
Lavinia Good Food is a cosy, hipster-decorated breakfast and lunch spot located in Amsterdam’s city centre.
They have a large variety of food options such as pizzas, sandwiches, soups (the coconut/sweet potato one was BOMB!), as well as delicious vegan and gluten-free pastries.
- Coffee & Coconuts (tested & approved)
It was pouring rain outside so we took shelter at Coffee & Coconuts for a warm oat milk cappuccino followed by a gluten free pumpkin and banana cake.
We ended up by staying there all night, sipping on cocktails and eating bread with different types of spreads.
- Stedelijk Museum
The Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam has one of the richest modern art collections in the world.
You will find works of Matisse, Picasso, and Warhol but also design and furniture collections.
- Moco Museum
The Moco Museum is also a modern and contemporary museum. Exhibitions are held in the historic Villa Alsberg, which is why they aren’t that big. We had the opportunity to see the Banksy and Warhol exhibitions, which were very nice.
Do not forget to show your student card to enjoy a discount!
Unfortunately, it is pretty difficult to find cheap hotels in Amsterdam. Ours was called The Student Hotel and was located in Amsterdam West, which I must agree was a bit far away but at least it had a tram station right in front of it.
The company has another hotel located in the city centre, but the prices are obviously higher.
Price/night for two: 130 €
