places to have lunch amsterdam vines
- Vinnies
Vinnies is such a cozy place to go to. It has two locations in Amsterdam. One at the Haarlemmerstraat and the other one at the Nieuwezijds kolk. They serve breakfast, lunch, pastries, coffee and much more. If you're looking for a not too big place with a good atmosphere, I recommend that you go to Vinnies.

- The Breakfast Club
Who doesn't want to eat breakfast all day? The Breakfast Club is the perfect place to do so. They have 3 locations. Bellamystraat 2, Haarlemmerplein 31 & Wibautstraat 56. So it doesn't matter if you're in the center, Amsterdam east or west, you'll find The Breakfast Club either way.

With it's great location at the Reestraat, Pluk is the perfect shop + lunchroom in one. Not only do they sell the cutest stuff, they have a lot of tasty food as well. Acai bowls, sandwiches, pies and so much more. Downstairs you can order your drinks + food, and upstairs you can sit down to eat and drink it all.

- Betty Blue
At Betty Blue, they serve breakfast, brunch, lunch, small meals, everything. The interior of the place is very cool too. A place you should check out. They're known for their delicious cheese cake and red velvet pie, so if you're in for some sweetness, try one of those. Or both. You can find Betty Blue in the street called Snoekjessteeg.

Finding a place to go for lunch in Amsterdam is a bit easier now, isn't it? If you want to eat something more traditional dutch, try poffertjes at De Vier Pilaren. Enjoy Amsterdam and enjoy your lunch!
