You have probably heard it before: of all the meals you can afford to miss in a single day, breakfast should never be one of them.
Your science and nutrition teachers were probably telling you the same principles behind this. Breakfast has always been said to be the most important meal of the day. It is supposed to be the meal that gave you all the nutrients that you needed for the rest of the day. It is supposed to be the meal that somehow paves the way for the rest of your day.
That’s all good. No one is going to disagree with you on that.
However, don’t you think that there’s something missing? While breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it also usually suffers the fate of being the most uninteresting. Sometimes (at least, for those who live a fast-paced life), it simply consists of a slice of bread or two, and then maybe a cup of the strongest coffee you could possibly have.
Well, an uninteresting breakfast is simply not the way to go, especially if you happen to be on vacation in Amsterdam. In this dynamic city, your every meal will be a memory you can fondly to look back on, and it’s all the more true for breakfast.
Here are some great breakfast destinations for your Amsterdam trip.
The first thing that’s great about this place is that it has several locations all over the city. Which means, if you miss eating any of the food on their menu, you won’t have to scratch your head looking for ways to visit them again; who knows, there might be one right around the next corner? If you are a huge fan of bread and would like to enjoy it in several (ful)filling ways, then De Bakkerswinkel is really the breakfast place for you.
Have you ever heard of breakfast food such as uitsmijters and broodjes? If you haven’t, then head on to Koffiehuis De Hoek for your early morning local meal. Here, you can very well enjoy a hearty breakfast while you simply watch the traffic that goes on to greet the new day. Of course, since you’re on vacation, it’s always good to get an early start, so that you can experience the city as much as you can.
The Breakfast Club
Well, you really could not get any more breakfast-y than that. With a restaurant that is aptly named The Breakfast Club, it’s practically impossible for them to fail in delivering amazing and fun breakfasts. Obviously, at The Breakfast Club, you can look forward to a morning meal that you can’t help but love. Try their pancakes (you seem unable to avoid great pancakes in Amsterdam, but nobody’s complaining), their smoothies, and yes, their sandwiches, too.
Want to enjoy your eggs but you’ve gotten tired of your own omelettes? Have you breakfast at Omelegg in Amsterdam. Here, you can very well take some inspiring ideas on how to make your next omelette, because at Omelegg, the possibilities are endless. You might want to pair that omelette up with a good sandwich, if you’re feeling hungrier than usual.
Want a healthy breakfast for a change? Try Sugarless on Bilderdijkstraat. Contrary to the idea that healthy is boring and bland, Sugarless takes the lead in providing top quality breakfasts. Take a bite of their fresh and fluffy breads, and be amazed at how delicious sugar-free smoothies can be.
The Point Is…
…don’t miss your breakfast. And especially not in Amsterdam.
