This is part of a three-post series on our favourite spots in 3 of the best neighbourhood’s of Amsterdam. For the other two parts, click here for the Guide to Jordaan, and here for the Guide to the 9 Streets.
De Pijp area is the ultimate cool-girl’s spot. Not only is it heavily residential, but it’s trendy and oozes hip vibes throughout. Just like in the Jordaan & the 9 Streets districts, there are tons of shopping & food options, but someone the ones here have a bit more of a edge to them.
Start your day with a late brunch at CT Coffee & Coconuts. With delicious smoothie (and boozy) drinks, filling breakfast options with a healthier fare, be sure to also save room for their incredible selection of freshly-baked goods. The space itself is huge, bright, and airy, and made me want to spend the afternoon here happily plugging away on my laptop. Another great option for breakfast and coffee is The Scandinavian Embassy, with equally great interiors.
Shop at Ninour for a small but perfeectly curated selection of art, jewellery and accessories. Alternatively, stay for some tea & snacks, which can also be served out on their backyard deck.
Eat at The Seafood Bar. This newly-opened bar & restaurant boasts a crisp white interior and a seriously fresh selection of seafood. Sidle up to one of the bar stools and order a round or two of shucked oysters alongside a flute of champagne. Heaven.
There are some serious gems of stores in this area. Stop by the Fragrance Store, and take part in their personality test to accurately match you up with your perfect scent. Then make sure to check out Anna + Nina Store for the most beautiful selection of home decor items & accessories. I wanted everything in there.
