Eerste Jacob van Campenstraat 54, 1072 BH Amsterdam
The saying ‘third time lucky’ really was quite appropriate for our brunch attempts at Bakers and Roasters…
We had tried two times previously only to be greeted with large crowds surging outside this brunch hotspot – clearly everyone in Amsterdam had exactly the same idea as us?
Come rain or shine there were constant crowds – with people turning away with waiting times of almost two hours!
We knew we’d have to be seriously sneaky if we wanted to get a table at Bakers and Roasters…
We would have to avoid peak times…so we hatched a plan!
A light snack in the morning before hitting Bakers and Roasters at the end of their service for a late brunch around 3pm.
We were shown to a table as soon as we arrived (smug), and after a quick round of Bloody Marys we ordered the Vege Breakfast – adding bacon.
Two organic free-range poached eggs (you can also choose fried or scrambled), grilled haloumi, avocado, breakfast potatoes, creamy mushrooms, homemade chilli jam & hot buttered toast. Incredible…
Its safe to say EVERY time we are in Amsterdam we will be visiting Bakers and Roasters and its safe to say we will not be joining the throngs of people queuing – fools.
The Burp Blog’s Verdict: Four out of Five Forks (would be 5 if you could actually go when you want)
Price: ££ (approx: £24 inc service)
The Burp’s Top Tip: Get there super early or towards end of service to avoid a long wait!
