Before our adventure in Brabant started last weekend, we drove into Amsterdam to get some coffee to start with. I looked on the map to find something in the outskirts of the city centre, for easy access with the car, and decided Jordaan would fit. It was early Saturday morning, a little bit chilly and grey, empty streets and I was blown away immediately by the beauty of this country. Searched for coffee and found…
…Toki! Great café, great coffee! I ruined mine by being over-excited about the trip and mixed up almond with oat – learned that coffee with almond milk tastes awful (in my opinion, not the café’s fault). Johan’s flat white with regular milk was amazing!
Johan was in Amsterdam for the first time last year and hadn’t made it to Jordaan, so we decided to take a quick stroll around the neighbourhood to find a supermarket to get some bread and cheese for breakfast.
Nothing says more Summer than buttercups. Or maybe bananas in a palm tree?
Next weekend we’re going back to Brabant and will have a few hours in Eindhoven and I’d love to hear if you have tips on places to go (especially cafés and restaurants)?
Also, we’re going to get some more hours in Amsterdam this time and I’d love to hear about your favourite spots there as well (same here, especially cafés and restaurants plus bars). Feel free to leave a comment! I promise I will come back with pictures from it all!
