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!
