Culture Trip

Amsterdam-Noord is an industrial-chic area north of the River IJ. It is easily accessible and a great place to discover, it being slightly more off the beaten path. Here visitors will be able to explore a great selection of restaurants, bars and interesting attractions, as well as very decent brunch offers.


Pllek has a lovely terrace where visitors can try an array of delicious breakfasts. It is a great place to get a bite to eat, with a relaxed atmosphere that is perfect for those who need to ease slowly into their day, and offers great views over the river. From fresh fruits to croissants, scrambled eggs and bacon or a gourmand coffee, Pllek is up to date with all of the latest brunch trends. To top it all off, the restaurant only uses food that is sustainably grown or caught.

IJ Hallen

At IJ Hallen, tourists will be able to explore one of Amsterdam-Noord’s most exciting establishments. After browsing through the great antiques, second-hand clothes and other objects on offer at one of the city’s biggest flea markets, visitors can enjoy delicious Dutch pancakes, sprinkled with sugar.

Jacques Jour

One of the best restaurants in Amsterdam-Noord, Jacques Jour is the place to go for a boozy brunch. From an obviously French-inspired hachis parmentier to an Alsatian delicacy in the form of a German-style pizza, Jacques Jour covers a range of cuisines.

Bistro Noord

Bistro Noord’s delicious brunch is available on Sundays. Throughout the week this restaurant is worth a visit for its top-notch food made with ingredients of the utmost quality. If the weather permits, visitors will be able to enjoy the locale’s food in the outdoor seating area, which is brightly decorated with blue and wooden accents and interesting art scattered here and there.

Taste Natural

Taste Natural is a great option for breakfast in the northernmost part of Amsterdam. Visitors who are craving something sweet will be delighted by the decadent brownies that are homemade at this original, independent establishment. For something savory, try the flavorsome sandwiches that are crafted each day with the freshest ingredients; from boiled eggs to cucumber with nuts, this restaurant has some excellent options.
