After an active morning in the stunning Rijksmuseum we treated ourselves to a delicious brunch at Staring at Jacob, a new(ish) brunch place which has opened in Oud West. Highly recommend it. It has a New York Meat Packing District feel to it.
The mute colours, big blackboards with a small but excellent menu, a combination of small and large wooden tables. A chill out corner with stacks of magazines and mis-matching furniture.
The service was good, the food better. I went for the aptly called Tree Hugger – an original choice for me since it was the veggie and healthy option. I loved the tofu, quinoa and kale combination.
And the yoghurt and granola was delicious. Mol went for the All Around which I was a little jealous of – the pancakes bacon and maple syrup were seriously good.
Jo’s Eggs Benedict (the ‘Benny Hill’) were yummy too.
To finish off the brunch we had the chocolate tart, which I passed upon entering and could not resist. It was worth it!
