Benji’s, this is where you want to go, believe me! You can go here for a good cup of coffee, breakfast and lunch. You’ll find the most delicious classic yoghurt bowls with banana, strawberry and granola, açai bowls, but also avocado toast and tosti’s. It looks amazing, you end up in a beautiful peaceful oasis with an industrial feel. Everything is inspired by the tropical spheres of Bali. The interior combines green natural elements like plants and wood, with some industrial tones in the form of stone and steel. This reflects in the overall theme of the ‘urban jungle’. You can find them at 3 locations in Amsterdam! We’re already getting hungry, aren’t you? Then don’t forget to visit Benji’s!

This is by far one of the best hotspots in Amsterdam. You can find it at the Amstel River. It has the most beautiful and cutest interior that you have ever seen before in a restaurant. Previously this was the Portuguese restaurant Girassol, now the brothers Diego and Carlo Teixeira and Kae Sutherland, the girlfriend of Diego, have taken over the business of their parents. They want to bring the beach and warm holiday feeling back to Amsterdam. Everywhere you see they used light and natural tones combined with marble tables and lots of bamboo. You’ll find the best bowls, sandwiches with homemade roast beef or salmon and delicious drinks. You can have breakfast lunch and dinner here. And last but not least, for all sangria lovers they organize Sangria Night every last Friday of the month with good music, good food and of course delicious sangria pitchers. The pictures don’t lie either, we love it! Make sure you bring a visit to Bam Boa, it’s definitely worth it!
