This city without a doubt has become one of my favourite places to visit! Known for its beautiful canals and historical buildings, its very hard not to love her. No matter how many times I re-visit, I am always in awe of how serene she is. With its young & vibrant streets, Amsterdam is the perfect weekend getaway and I encourage you to hop on a bike and and go explore! 


 

cafes

DE WASSERETTE    On my last trip I discovered 'De Wasserette' in Amsterdam. It's this little lunch café on a corner near the Albert Cuyp market and located in 'De Pijp', one of my favourite neighbourhoods in the city. Probably was my favourite coffee stop while I was in the area. If you ever go, try their french toast. You wont regret it!

COTTONCAKE Cottoncake brings all its influences together in one store. Besides food & drinks you will find a mix of fashion, design & lifestyle. From lovely handmade jewelries of Mimi et Toi & Monocraft, organic creams of La Bruket, to lovely basic shirts of Samsoe & Samoe and beautiful knits of Sita Murt. I really fell in love with this concept store; you can sit down and relax, enjoy their organic healthy food and find that special item all in one shop!

COFFEE & COCONUTS Located in an old theatre. A lot of cute corners where you can chill and drink some fresh coconut juice while getting some work done. And I love how the interior gives you a cozy feeling even though this space is huuuuge! I really loved the industrial design of this place. Their website is rather cool and they have their own radio! I'm actually listening to it while I write this up. Listen here
