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)?

    Loved the fresh tingle on my tongue of the zingy ginger beer and would definitely order it again. Enjoyed the eggs katsu supreme, poached eggs were perfect. However, there was no discernible Katsu flavour in the hollandaise sauce and I feel other options on the menu offer better value for money. Had a wee taste of the eggs Greenwood which was delicious! Interesting menu, good service, will happily return.

    We had breakfast there while we were staying nearby. The food quality was good but both of us found ours a little flavorless. The potatoes on my veggie breakfast were quite greasy. 14.25 for a full veggie and full Scottish is pricey and we didn’t leave feeling like it was good value - especially after adding coffee and tea to the bill. Disappointing based on other reviews.

    Overpriced for what we received! Cappuccino was served in a cup about the size of a thimble! Food was rather bland and hashbrowns were sold and grey in the middle. Very disappointed considering other peoples reviews

    Loose tea was not in bags so tea was extremely bitter and not enjoyable Waitress was just ok Reservations too close together and we were told we had 5 minutes to leave for the next table immediately after we were finished. Not very relaxing.

    GreenwoodsResponded on 6 July 2022Hi Cynthia, Thanks for the review, I'd just like to make a few points. All of our tea is served with strainers because it is more eco friendly than disposable bags. We do have these to hand for take away drinks. If you had told us at the time, we would have fixed this but you didn't. You were kindly asked to vacate the table 15mins after paying your bill. We are a small restaurant & required the table for another booking, which we don't feel is unreasonable. Best, Emma- Restaurant Manager

    My pal and I met at 11am when we had booked. Our table was still being used so we had to wait outside for a few minutes, with a few other customers. It wasn't raining so this was fine. The service was excellent, and the food was absolutely delicious and a huge portion. However the hot chocolate was so-so, and for a fiver this wasn't good. I would go again but only if I was feeling flush and starving. 4/5

    I’ve been meaning to try Greenwoods (and the banana bread tumble)for ages and finally got a table! It didn’t disappoint - all four meals were excellent and definitely worth ordering chips as a side! It was extremely busy, but the service was so quick and friendly and we’ll definitely be back. The Pride cocktail was delicious and came with a topping of red glitter.
