I’m not in Amsterdam enough, but when I am, I make it a point of visiting somewhere new.
Since we did not have a lot of time, Mini Turtle (who’s own tab on Amsterdam will be added to City Turtle very soon) and I decided to visit Vondelpark3 for a quick breakfast before going to The Hague.
Vondelpark3 is the new Kitchen & Bar which has opened (less than two months ago) in the beautiful Vondelpark in Central Amsterdam. We were lucky with the weather because that is Vondelpark3’s real selling point: its expansive terrace with lovely views of the park.
Vondelpark3 is in the newly (and beautifully) restored Vondelpark Pavilion – it took them a year and a half to restore and they’ve done a great job. The most notable thing apart from the terrace is just how much space there is. While I’m sure come the summer this place will be very popular, at least they’ll be able to accommodate a lot of people, both in and outside.
We sat outside in the lovely spring sun and watched joggers run past and dogs chase sticks. The perfect way to start the weekend. Inside it is light and airy, with comfortable sofas and chairs and newspapers and magazines to read. The combination of this with the terrace is probably why they call themselves the park’s ‘livingroom’.
Mini Turtle just had an orange & kiwi juice and a Cappucino. I had the organic yoghurt, fruit and muesli option as well as a strawberry & rasberry juice. My yoghurt option was huge and fresh, just what I felt like. The juices were good, as was the coffee.
The menu does not offer much choice for breakfast, so I would really recommend coming for (an affordable) lunch instead, where their salads (especially the Shepherd – goats cheese, asparagus, spinach and blue grape) really appealed. They also serve dinner.
