Breakfast

The first breakfast brunch venue in Amsterdam finally makes it to Scotland!

ALL DAY Breakfast / Brunch and Lunch menu. Vegan - Vegetarian and Gluten Free dishes and options. Fully licenced and located in the centre of town just off George Street and 5 minutes from Princes Street and the Station.

Dutch inspired and owned.

Homemade drinks and all food prepared fresh daily.

We pride ourselves on sourcing top quality local ingredients and make our products fresh on the premises as much as we can. And of course, we also brought our Dutch roots with us as well. You’ll find it on the menu and in the restaurant itself. Fancy some traditional Dutch ‘appeltaart’ (apple pie)?

    Time slots are based on number of people in the group which I missed when I made the reservation so hadn’t realised we only had 1 hour.

    Nice little place the food is a generous portion and was nice but nothing to rave about. Ordered the homemade peach ice tea and was so disappointed with it as it tasted just like Tesco diluted juice. The staff were nice and pleasant.

    Very friendly staff, good choice on menu, great coffee. Only comment was some of the hot breakfast was tepid - I’d guess it was sitting on the pass waiting for other dishes? Poached eggs tasted of vinegar

    The food blew us away! We searched for boutique restaurants with good food and were not disappointed! I had the chicken, bacon and avacado on soda bread and I think it may have been the best thing I have eaten. My partner had the burger and he still hasn’t stopped talking about it. Absolutely incredible food! Cannot recommend enough!

    I was really excited to come here from the reviews but sadly the food really didn’t satisfy us both. The quality was really cheap, and it all tasted fried & no seasoning. The coffee wasn’t great either. Staff are lovely but food is lacking so much. I wouldn’t recommend sadly :(
