The Breakfast Club - Amsterdam, Netherlands

 
We ate our first breakfast in Amsterdam at a restaurant called The Breakfast Club.
 
We found this place by coincidence and I'm so happy that we did! We had just arrived in Amsterdam and wanted to find a nice breakfast place when it out of nowhere started to hail! We stood in the middle of the street with our phones in our hands, trying to find anything nearby when a dutch woman appeared and asked if we needed help. How nice? With bad English, she tried to explain the directions to "a good breakfast place she had forgotten the name of" and we ended up at The Breakfast Club. I have no idea if this was the place she had in mind, but the interior was cute and the menu sounded delicious so we went in.
 
There are four different The Breakfast Clubs in Amsterdam and we ate at the one at Haarlemmerplein. Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, and at this place, they serve it from morning to evening. A really good place to go to if you want some pancakes, sandwiches, cereals or eggs in other words!

Coffee & Coconuts - Amsterdam, Netherlands

 
One of the coolest restaurants we visited in Amsterdam most have been Coffee & Coconuts.
 
We went there for breakfast during our second day in the city, and I have to say that I'm impressed! The restaurant is three stories high and it's built in an old cinema where they have kept a lot of the original architecture from the 1920's which I (the architecture nerd) of course, loved. I had a smoothie bowl and a croissant and my boyfriend had some french toast and we were both satisfied with our choices.
 
Everything from the interior to the menu is tropical themed and I just loved every second of it. If I where a local in Amsterdam, I would probably hang here a lot, working on my computer with a smoothie in my hand. It just felt like such an inspiring atmosphere where you could sit for hours and hours!

Corner Bakery - Amsterdam, Netherlands

 
Whoever said money can't buy happiness, has obviously never bought a Freak Shake from the Corner Bakery in Amsterdam, haha!
 
I was looking on Instagram for cool places to visit in Amsterdam before our trip there when I came across a photo with one of these amazing milkshakes and pretty much decided on the spot that I had to go there. The Corner Bakery offers many different kinds of sweets and I honestly wanted to try them all but I had my eyes on the Freak Shake! I also ordered some avocado toast since I'm a professional sugar-eater and know my body can't handle that amount of sugar without balancing it out with some "real" food, haha. 
 
We got there around 4 pm on a Friday and the place was smacked with teenage girls, not surprised though since the café is super "insta friendly" in both food and interior. The Corner Bakery is a bit of the central parts of Amsterdam, and there is not much to see in the area around it, but I would still recommend a visit just to get a Freak Shake, haha. It might honestly have been the most delicious thing I've ever tasted! Take a stroll through Vondelpark on your way over there and you're halfway there!
