sunday lunch in amsterdam

Going for slow lunches on Sundays is one of my favorite activities to do, especially if the weather’s nice. There’s just something relaxing about waking up late, chilling in the couch with a cup of warm coffee, dressing up nicely and then leaving the house to go for lunch.

I take Sunday lunch very seriously and I’m always looking for new places to try! In fact, I have a huge list of restaurants in Amsterdam that I want to visit, as soon as possible. I’ll make sure to include them in a blog post if they’re trustworthy, so stay tuned.

In this post, I share my top three places to have a Sunday lunch in Amsterdam!


Bar Mash, De Pijp

I seriously don’t know how many times I’ve visited this restaurant – it’s such an easy choice, with its nice atmosphere, budget-friendly prices and delicious food.

Located in the heart of De Pijp, with a cute outside seating area (which is particularly nice in the Summer), this Thai restaurant has a very complete menu, although I must confess, I’ve only tried the traditional Pad Thai.

Every time I go there, I promise myself I’m going to try the other dishes, but the Pad Thai is so incredibly good that I just end up not resisting it – and it’s only 9€ at lunch time!

If you go there, you must also try the spring rolls and the chicken sticks with peanut sauce as a starter. They also do have amazing cocktails – the only disappointing thing is that unfortunately they don’t have any desserts, but I guess that’s a good excuse to go to another cute coffeeshop in De Pijp and order an espresso and some cake!

Buffet Van Odette, Vijzelgracht

I feel like this is such a good restaurant to have an easy going but chic Sunday lunch, if you know what I mean. The whole restaurant gives you Parisian vibes, with its wooden chairs, marble floor and large windows – but don’t get me wrong, the restaurant is Dutch and proud of it.

In fact, I couldn’t spot a single expat or tourist in a restaurant and I read in Google that they try to keep it exclusive to local people. I only got a table because I booked in advance, and I’m glad I did, because the food was really good.

We ordered the very famous truffle cheese omelette, roasted potatoes with mayonnaise and pumpkin-sage ravioli. All of this accompanied by Rosé Wine, of course.

Our favorite dish was definitely the ravioli – I dare to say it was divine. I really want to go to Buffed Van Odette again, and try the cheese with fig bread and poached eggs with tomato sauce.

We paid 20€ each for lunch, which I guess is fine in Amsterdam and in a fancy and homely restaurant.

Coffee & Coconuts, De Pijp

Coffee & Coconuts will take you to Bali while you’re in Amsterdam. This place’s decoration is very hipster and tropical at the same time, and it’s huge! There are several floors with nice couches and sitting areas, so it’s also a really good place to get some work done.

They serve brunch and lunch food, so it’s a nice choice if you’d rather have something lighter. When we went there, we had scrambled eggs on avocado toast, blueberry pancakes and ciabatta with three different sauces. Oh, and we also got some smoothies and Iced Coffee. A whole lot of food, I must say!

Everything was really good and I’ll definitely be going there again, even if it’s just for some coffee and cake.
