Puccini Bomboni – Chocolate de luxe

Actually, my mum discovered this one and now it is a must each time she comes over to Amsterdam. Puccini’s pralines are of the very finest quality: the best ingredients, surprising combinations — the art of making chocolate :). They seem to be handmade, piece by piece. I use them as my little guilty pleasure, […]

Lotti’s (The Hoxton) – Lattes, lunch & laptops

As the city’s canals attract many tourists like bees to honey, it can sometimes be hard to find a place that’s truly great and not just another tourist trap. That’s why I was more than thrilled to find Lotti’s Bar & Grill in the Hoxton hotel in Amsterdam (or as some like to call it, […]

Oko Cultural Melting Point – Home-made everything

Ania and Natalia, the founders of Oko Cultural Melting Point, brought the project to daylight via a crowdfunding action which was a real success. Apparently, people living in Bos en Lommer in Amsterdam were craving for a neighbourhood cafe with home-made everything at its core and community as its spirit.  The cafe / lunchroom / cultural […]

Latei – Coffee, vintage & rock’n’roll

I can tell you, Amsterdam is amazing, but it does have one or two little problems. First: everything is so beautiful and curated that you might have difficulties in finding something authentic. The second is related to the first: Amsterdammers are great in marketing, which, again, doesn’t help the overall experience if what you’re seeking […]

Huize van Wely & Linnick – Cakes and macarons

My two favorite places to indulge on my sugar cravings are Huize van Wely (located in the Gelderlandplein shopping mall, Beethovenstraat and Amstelveen shopping centre) and Linnick. The first is one I am already a fan of for a long time, as my parents maintain the tradition of treating me and my sister with a birthday cake […]

Black Gold – Specialty coffee & vinyl

Black Gold is located in the heart of Amsterdam’s city center. Fear not. This cafe is a third wave coffee haven, hidden in the serenity of the residential streets around the buzzing Nieuwmarkt. No touristy hype here. It is a two-in-one: you go there for a fresh cup and for inspiration. The beans are from […]

Hoofddorpplein – Cosy neighbourhood

Hoofddorpplein is only a few doorsteps from my apartment and has a variety of shops, cafes and restaurants. Although this area is still part of the city center and not too far from touristic sights such as Museumplein and the Vondelpark, I experience there to be a local atmosphere in this neighbourhood. Once a year […]

TOKI – Local hangout to take it slow

At first, I was tempted to call it a coffee shop. But TOKI is actually way more than just that. This local favorite can be found right off the popular Haarlemmerstraat. So while you’re browsing through the endless boutiques here and you’re in need of an inspiring and recharging pit stop, TOKI Amsterdam is the […]

Café De Wetering – Cosy bar

For me, the perfect bar is where you feel like you’re at home – only that they have better drinks and you might meet new people 🙂 At De Wetering, the music is never too loud, something that I’m very sensitive to. With a maximum of 50 guests, the bar is very cosy and the […]
