Living in Holland has its joys. The Springtime is the BEST time to visit, since all the tulips, narcissus, daffodils, crocuses, snow drops and cherry blossoms fill the air with a fragrant, gorgeous display of Mother Nature’s prowess. But you’re here for FOOD (and drinks).
We love this about you.
Afterall, what better way to soak in all the unique joys Holland has to offer than to eat, drink and be merry? Well, you’re in luck. We are sharing our Food Guide for De Pijp Restaurants, Bars, Cafes and Hangouts.

Food Guide: De Pijp Restaurants
Alright, friends. Let’s get this Food and Drink Party started! We’re gonna take it one-by-one, and not in any particular ranking or order. We totally get it: one person’s Chicken Picatta preference is another’s Sushi.
So without any further ado, here is the Amy Guides™ Food Guide: Favorite De Pijp Restaurants, Bars, Cafes and Hangouts.
Cafe Berkhout – Stadhouderskade 77
If you love a classic British pub, Cafe Berkhout is for you. Tasty traditional draught beers, ever-changing micro/craft brews and simple-but-yummy menu items make this tiny hangout a stand out in De Pijp restaurants. Located on the corner directly across from the Heineken Experience makes Cafe Berkhout perfectly accessible when you wish a quick respite from a day touring or hanging out in Amsterdam.
Bakers & Roasters – Eerste Jacob van Campenstraat 54
Cafe De Pijp – Ferdinand Bolstraat 17-19
The Seafood Bar – Ferdinand Bolstraat 32
Dim Sum Now – Ferdinand Bolstraat 36
Cafe Blond Amsterdam – Ferdinand Bolstraat 44
Their signage says it all: Coffee, Breakfast, Lunch, High Tea, Drinks, Shop. What we love most is the atmosphere. Cozy chairs near the windows, and no one will kick you out if you enjoy working in a cafe for 6-8 hours. 🙂 They also have soups, salads and a Kid’s menu. The food it typical, but doesn’t break the bank, which is a plus.
Hoed and Krelis – Ferdinand Bolstraat 58
Ferdinand Bowls – Ferdinand Bolstraat 128
Cafe Flamingo – Eerste van der Helststraat 37
Arrogantly shabby pub in De Pijp, with tasty craft brews on tap. An upper seating area gives a cool view of the pub as well as to just outside, into De Pijp neighbourhood. Super people watching spot. 😉
Cafe De Groene Vlinder – Albert Cuypstraat 130
We absolutely adore this cafe. Perhaps it’s the outdoor tables, or because it was Amy’s foray into De Pijp with her new friends in Amsterdam, but “The Vlinder” holds a special place in our hearts. Inexpensive selection of draft beers, tasty eats, a fun-loving atmosphere make this cafe perfect. Oh, and the Albert Cuyp Market is right here, so this is an A++ people-watching venue.
La Mian – Albert Cuypstraat 143
Asian street food flair in a cozy, stylish setting. Ban mi buns, jiaozi, dry noodles, noodle soups and more. This restaurant’s relatively limited menu is anything but limiting, however. The tastes are authentic. We love coming here for a Happy Hour bite and a drink. Try the Lemongrass Tea (not really black tea, or any tea for that matter, but tasty nevertheless).
