Because who wouldn’t want to walk in somewhere and be greeted by the smell of freshly ground coffee beans and croissants? Whether you’re just visiting Rotterdam or living here, a good breakfast is always a must. Read the top 10 breakfast spots in the city.

1. De Brunch Club

One of the best breakfast spots in Rotterdam has to be The Brunch Club. It’s one of the locals’ favourites for a reason. Though popularity comes with a price; you better come early as they don’t take reservations anymore. But it’s worth it! This trendy place serves the most delicious breakfasts, such as French toast, smoothie bowls and fresh salmon sandwiches. 

Address De Brunch Club: Zaagmolenkade 15, 3035 KD Rotterdam

2. All day breakfast at Lilith

Lillith is especially for the pancake lovers, because they serve the best ones. The locals of Rotterdam call the ‘pancake heaven’ as their selection is to die for. Whether you’re in the mood for Matcha pancakes or the classic American style ones, they have the right one for you. They also serve savoury sandwiches and have a fantastic brunch menu (for those who like to sleep in). 

Address Lillith: Nieuwe Binnenweg 125 H, 3014 GJ Rotterdam

3. Louise petit - Déjeuner

Swap Rotterdam for Paris! Escape the business of the city centre and feel as if you’re in France, because their classic style French crêpes, omelettes and macarons will certainly do the trick. Want a bite of that French breakfast? Then you better be on time, because they only do walk-ins.
