Would you like to have a tasty breakfast in Rotterdam Noord? From the fluffy pancakes at Arzu to the breakfast bunn at Man met Bril Koffie, there are plenty of hotspots with delicious breakfast dishes in this cozy area of our city.

Of course you can find cozy breakfast shops throughout the whole of Rotterdam. So read our article with the best breakfast shops in Rotterdam for more inspiration!


1. Arzu

Als je trekt hebt in pannenkoeken, ga dan zeker langs Arzu The Foodbar Supplier in Rotterdam. Hier kun je namelijk meer dan 15 verschillende soorten pannenkoeken bestellen en ze zijn zó lekker.

Arzu on the Bergweg in Rotterdam North should not be missing from this list! In their cozy shop they sell the most delicious fluffy pancakes.

In total you can order 18 different types of pancakes and they are so tasty. From Nutella, apple pie and Oreo to shawarma (with vegetable shawarma and cheddar cheese), hummus and Popeye (with spinach and feta cheese).

Arzu’s pancakes are known among most Rotterdammers, so you usually have to wait for a table (especially on weekends). But it is well worth the wait!

TIP: take a box of Arzu’s food bars with you after your breakfast, the product that started it all for Arzu. In 2015, she started selling these sweet treats on the Swan market before opening her own business. Be warned: you won’t be able to stop eating them!

Voor wie trek heeft in een lekker, gezond ontbijt is Sappi de uitkomst. Zij hebben naast de locatie in het centrum ook een fijne locatie op de Zwaanhals in Rotterdam Noord. 

For those who fancy a tasty, healthy breakfast, Sappi is the solution. In addition to the location in the center, they also have a great location on the Zwaanhals in Rotterdam North.

The menu includes fresh sandwiches, healthy salads and tasty bowls. For example, order the vegan smashed avocado sandwich with chili flakes and alfalfa. So good!

Sappi would not be Sappi without the well-known healthy juices. From the green Power Juice with avocado, lime, spinach and green apple to the Hangover Killer with carrot, ginger, pineapple and apple, here you get the vitamin boost you need! Prefer a tea or coffee? That is also possible.
