Between all of Amsterdam’s chaos, Gartine is a charming little breakfast/lunchroom just a few minutes away from Dam Square. It’s a beautiful spot that serves organic food that comes fresh from their own garden. The staff is great, and together with the appealing (tiny) space and the antique cutlery, this place really is one of my all-time favorites.
Gartine offers amazing pastries and coffee, breakfast and sandwiches, making it the perfect place to get together. I’m a big breakfast fan myself, so if you decide to visit Gartine, I recommend to try the ‘big breakfast’. Breathtaking. Reservations are generally required. Call them in advance to not get disappointed. Bon appétit!
