Best boozy brunch spots in Amsterdam

If your body is craving nourishment after a night on the town, but you know it will take something stronger than coffee to get you up and running, a boozy brunch may just be the ticket to another day of feeling alive. These are the best places for a boozy brunch in Amsterdam!


Celia restaurant cocktails and signature dishes

We can’t say enough good things about the new Californian-inspired cocktail brunches at Celia, where they serve sharable carafes of Mimosa, Bellini or Bloody Mary. There’s something for everyone, from comforting classics (think fluffy lemon ricotta pancake stacks, housemade bagels with smoked fish, and warm cinnamon buns with tonka bean glaze) to veg-led options like smoked mushroom tacos, kimchi-fried quinoa, and romanesco with green garlic and Meyer lemon.

TEDS café signature dishes

Venture just beyond the city centre into the charming Teds for a slice of a local Amsterdammer’s life. This cafe is dedicated to their all-day brunch mission: their menu is filled with variations on classics, all equally delicious. Try the abnormally decadent Monster Cristo with a mimosa at any time of day - no judgment! The atmosphere is laid back, and there are lots of opportunities to people-watch on the terrace as you recover from a night of exploits with a drink in hand.

Lekker, mate; this neighbourhood hangout serves one of the most creative brunches in the city with a tongue-in-cheek sense of humour and a warm Aussie welcome. Classic breakfast dishes are elevated with culinary flair, seamlessly touching upon Asian and Latin American flavours to reflect the diverse influences in the food scene down under. Highlights include the Thai spiced haddock scotch egg, dulce de leche pancake stack and the ‘Mortgage on Toast’ smashed avocado with pico de gallo. Alongside locally roasted coffee, natural wines and delicious tap beers, the cocktail menu is surprising and refined. Give one of the orange blossom mimosas or the oolong tea-infused old-fashioned an excellent slurp - you won’t be disappointed!

Staring at Jacob

Tucked away on a quiet canal corner in Amsterdam Oud-West, an excited buzz ripples through this charming hotspot. The melting pot of diners and the attentive wait staff is reminiscent of a hip New York diner, which is pretty fitting, as this boozy brunch joint prides itself on American-inspired comfort food. When that inevitable sweet or savoury dilemma hits, there’s no need to fret - they’ve perfected chicken and waffles. Ease yourself in with a mimosa, a G&T, or if your hangover has done some severe damage, take on a Bloody Mary spiked with pickle juice and a crisp rasher of bacon. You’ll be ready to take on the world in no time.

Cut Throat

Cut Throat’s concept is undoubtedly a surprise: brunch in a functioning barbershop is not something you see daily. Settle into the achingly cool interior, where the ambience is complemented by rhythmic beats spun by live DJs, pairing seamlessly with the Caribbean comfort food provided. The menu offers a vast selection of crafted cocktails, featuring their renowned Bloody Good Marys and bottomless brunch with cocktails and mimosas. The food menu is available Wednesday through Sunday and showcases Caribbean brunch all day, from Jerk chicken and hash to Pepper pot and Plantains that will surpass expectations.

Little Collins

It’s becoming a trend to see expats in Amsterdam seeking out the little things they miss from home. This is precisely how Little Collins’ story began. Opened by two Aussies who were missing the brunch traditions from their native city of Melbourne, this brunch haunt oozes a friendly and laid-back atmosphere with a menu that's out of this world. You can’t go wrong with the menu. The Çılbır (Turkish) eggs are sublime: an underrated dish that is an excellent addition to any brunch menu. Expect a decent waiting time on the weekends, but once your name is on the list it’s easy to kill some time wandering the eclectic Albert Cuyp Market. The cocktail list has your back with Bloody Mary’s and Espresso martinis. If you find yourself in Amsterdam West, the sister cafe Collins West offers a slightly tweaked menu.

Coffee & Coconuts

What awaits in this revived 1920’s cinema building is not quite a full-scale brunch but rather an all-day breakfast and an extensive menu boosted up by the Drunk Mr. Nilsson, served in a coconut or a Boozy Bali to set the tone. If you’re looking for coffee, it’s roasted in the house as a matter of pride. Climb up the stairs and settle in this corner of the tropics hidden away in Amsterdam.

Mama Makan

Mama Makan’s authentic Indonesian cuisine & botanical cocktails make for a great weekend bottomless brunch at the Hyatt Regency Amsterdam. You’ll find all the classic brunch staples here, with an Asian twist, of course. Get ready for tahu goreng Benedict eggs on top of fried tofu and a lemongrass-turmeric sauce, or if you’re craving sweetness, go for the coconut pancakes with roasted and rum-soaked pineapple. Don’t forget to upgrade to the bottomless Cava!

Bakers & Roasters

Owned by one part Kiwi and one part Brazilian, this marvellous brunch spot has become synonymous with its queues around the block, particularly on the weekend. And offering goods such as dreamy banana nut bread, french toast and game-changing Navajo eggs, it’s for a bloody good reason. With a spot secured on this list, Bakers & Roasters’ extensive cocktail list is a given. But when a New Zealand-style cafe describes itself as ‘served with a heavy dose of Brazil’, we recommend that you don’t overlook the coffee menu!
