Mecca also serves special breakfast dishes inspired by the Middle East. For example, the changing menu currently includes a delicious dish with labneh (savoury yogurt dip) with egg. Highly recommended and a personal favourite!

3. Didot34

Brunch in a beautiful building with a special story. Restaurant Didot34 can be found around the corner from Oostplein, on the ground floor of hotel The Slaak. Located in a national monument which was known as a newspaper printing company in the 1950s.

You will no longer find paper and typewriters there, but coffee, breakfast, lunch and dinner on the menu. From 07:00 you are welcome, even as a non-hotel guest, for a breakfast such as various egg dishes and avocado toast.

Would you rather join a little later? During lunch, the restaurant offers rich sandwiches with bread from Rotterdam icon Jordy’s Bakery.

Slaak 34, 3061 CS Rotterdam

 

4. Cinema Culinair

Looking for a unique experience at brunch? At Cinema Culinair , you watch movies and eat the exact same dishes as in the movie at the same time. To the second, so you eat what you see. In addition to the dinner shows, a sweet brunch variant is also organised, where you enjoy delicious homemade chocolates while watching the movie Chocolat (2000) and a beautiful etagere with different sandwiches and rolls to alternate with the sweetness.

Cinema Culinair is organised several times a year in Rotterdam. The next edition is from 4 to 14 April in the Keilepand, where you will enjoy with all your senses every Thursday to Sunday! The brunch show is on Saturday 6 April from 12.00 – 16.00.

5. Wolly

You will find Wolly aan de Waterkant on the sunny corner of Noordplein. You are welcome here seven days a week for all-day breakfast, good coffee and tasty pastries.

Think, for example, of delicious cinnamon rolls and matcha cookies with white chocolate. I recommend their brioche buns, with toppings like crayfish, chicken and eggs with avocado. Combine it with their Brazilian lemonade, especially on hot days, this is wonderfully refreshing!

Inside they offer seating at the bar, long tables or in cosy booths. On sunny days you can soak in the rays on their inviting terrace.

A nice place to start the day early or to sit down late on a hungover Sunday. In our Instagram reel you get a look inside (and outside!).

Noordplein 1, 3035 EA Rotterdam

 

6. Blend Artwork

Since January 2024, Blend Artwork has taken over the concept and menu of the former Studio Unfolded. As you were used to, this location on the Nieuwe Binnenweg is a shop, coffee place, event location and creative agency all in one. A super fun creative place to get together.

On a sunny day, you can sit in the lovely garden (with parasol against the sun if necessary) and enjoy an (iced) coffee, chai latte or homemade iced tea. You can also spot this in our video!

Address 

Nieuwe Binnenweg 305A, 3021 GH Rotterdam

 

7. No10 Coffee

No 10 is a cool coffee shop on the Hoogstraat. The name No 10, or Number Ten, stands for Rotterdam. No 10 is also decorated in the Rotterdam colours, namely green.

In addition to coffee, you come here for breakfast, lunch or just something delicious. So it is definitely possible to have brunch here! For example, order the burrata avocado, spicy tuna melt or one of the healthy bowls, such as an acai bowl. Choose from several tasty pastries from their display case to top it off.

8. De Brunch Bar

Brunch with a French vibe; that means round marble tables, golden accents, tasty coffee and croissants. But that’s not all, of course. For example, there are tasty sandwiches and smoothie bowls on the menu. Or go for an extensive brunch menu.

Tip: order the Flora Tea. This is a tea in the shape of a not yet blossomed flower, which opens as soon as it is in water.

Scheepstimmermanslaan 27A, 3016 AD Rotterdam

 

9. Roast

At ROAST in Rotterdam West they specialize in good coffee. The staff come from all over the world and have brought all their knowledge and experience here, for a really nice cup of coffee.

You’ve also come to the right place for a good brunch. The menu includes delicious all-day breakfast dishes, such as freshly made toast or bagels. A favourite is Eggs Benny: two poached eggs on freshly baked bread with hollandaise sauce and sesame seeds.

You may have already seen them in our Instagram reel!

Middellandplein 21B, 3021 BV Rotterdam

 

10. Harvest Cafe & Bakery

Bij Harvest Coffee Brewers kun je ontbijten, brunchen of lunchen met een prachtig uitzicht over een klein haventje in Rotterdam. Het terrasje is klein, dus er is niet altijd plek, maar binnen zit je ook hartstikke gezellig.

Delicious coffee, super tasty food and great service! This is exactly what you can expect at Harvest Coffee Brewers. This great hotspot is located in the Glashaven, a fun and unique location. If the weather permits, you can also sit outside on the small terrace, right on the water of the harbour.

The owners of Harvest Coffee Brewers have worked in the hospitality scene in Melbourne Australia amongst others and this really shows in the menu and the whole vibe of the place. Enjoy laidback and no-nonsense.

With tasty breakfast dishes such as eggs benedict or chia pudding, you just know you’re always in the right place.

Address
Glashaven 107, 3011 XG Rotterdam

 

11. Cafe Unfiltered

Cafe unfiltered, a nice minimalist coffee shop, can be found on the Van Oldenbarneveltstraat. Because of the sand-coloured walls, beautiful wooden design chairs and calm music you can completely relax here.

What you can order here? Of course a good cup of coffee, but also a delicious matcha and chai latte. For something sweet, choose something from the display case, such as cinnamon rolls and banana bread.

For brunch dishes, think French toast with seasonal fruit, honey butter and caramelized hazelnut and vanilla cream. Or go for savory and choose the burrata with sourdough bread, cherry tomatoes, figs and basil oil.

Address

Van Oldenbarneveltstraat 125A, 3012 GT Rotterdam

 

12. the bellhop hotel

Just because it’s a hotel doesn’t mean you can’t come and taste their delicious menu. A real asset to the Witte de Withstraat if you ask us, because here you eat according to an all day breakfast concept – something we don’t see much in this bustling Rotterdam street.

The menu includes a breakfast plate with a boiled egg, croissants, avocado toast, yogurt & homemade granola and pieces of fruit. This can be ordered until noon.

In addition, there are a lot of individual dishes that can be ordered until 5 p.m., such as pancakes with blueberries, a (soya) yogurt bowl and much more.

Address

Witte de Withstraat 77, 3012 BN Rotterdam

 

13. Vlaamsch Broodhuys

Vlaamsch Broodhuys is een heerlijke plek om te ontbijten, brunchen of lunchen. Hier serveren ze echt super lekker brood uit hun eigen bakkerij.

We love having brunch at Vlaamsch Broodhuys. For example, choose one of their freshly made Dimitri sandwiches from their extensive menu, such as the Avocado sandwich or the Bonito Tuna. You can also choose from grilled sandwiches, salads and soups. Their drinks menu is extensive: coffee, tea, soft drinks, beers, wines and much more.

Highly recommended at Vlaamsch Broodhuys is the tasting of Dimitri’s sandwiches. Here you get whole wheat sourdough bread with four types of toppings!

14. Dudok

Voor de Rotterdammer een waar begrip, want de kans is groot dat je ooit wel eens binnen bent geweest bij Dudok. Midden op de Meent vind je deze grote zaak waar er heel de dag door wat gebeurt. Ideaal als je wilt lunchen tussen al dat shoppen door. Want voor de grote trek zit je hier goed: ga voor de rijk belegde sandwiches, uitsmijters of onze favoriete ‘Dudok 12-uurtje’ met desembrood, een kroket (ook vega!), soepje en eiersalade.

Dudok is not to be missed when you walk along the Meent and it’s a place where you wonder if it is ever not busy. It might not be the place for a fancy vegan acai bowl, but if you’re in the mood for delicious fried eggs or a big sandwich, you’ve come to the right place.

Hungover on Sunday? We recommend the “Dudok 12-hour” – with sourdough bread, a croquette (also veggie!), soup and egg salad! Be sure to visit their other location, especially on sunny days: Dudok in the Park.

Meent 88, 3011 JP Rotterdam

 

15. Man met Bril Koffie

Man Met Bril Koffie is a name that sounds familiar to most Rotterdammers. These coffee beans are used by many restaurants, cafes and hotels.

Man Met Bril Koffie has its own location, where coffee lovers can enjoy their favorite cup of coffee. It is also a great brunch spot to enjoy a club sandwich, eggs benedict or pancakes on a lazy Sunday.

Address

Vijverhofstraat 70, 3032 SN Rotterdam

 

16. Euromast

Genieten van het uitzicht op het terras van de Euromast is ideaal als de zon schijnt. Vanwege de heldere lucht kan je namelijk kilometers in de verte kijken! Wij raden aan om tijdens zonsondergang te gaan, om te zien hoe de gouden zonnestralen de stad verlichten.

With the best view of the city, a glass of orange juice and an extensive buffet, the Euromast brunch is not bad at all. Get a breath of fresh air and watch the city wake up from above. Every Saturday and Sunday morning you can enjoy their brunch from 10:00 to 12:00. Don’t forget to make a reservation!

TIP: Buy your ticket to go up the Euromast up front. The ticket price is higher if you buy entrance tickets on the day of your visit.

17. Breakfast in Rotterdam HQ

Ben je op zoek naar een lekker ontbijtje in Rotterdam? Dan is Breakfast in Rotterdam HQ natuurlijk een goede keuze! Hier zie je de heerlijke Chia Madness met een verfrissende ijskoffie op het terras van Breakfast in Rotterdam HQ.

The dishes on the menu at Breakfast in Rotterdam HQ may be breakfast dishes, but you can order them throughout the day!

We therefore recommend trying “Het Plankje”, with a ½ Avo Smash, butter croissant with jam and butter, a small yoghurt bowl and coffee / tea. Also delicious with a soft-boiled egg or smoked salmon!

A real American dinner with plenty of options to get through your hungover Sunday. The waiters walk around with fresh filter coffee and on the menu you will find lots of options such as the Full Jarmusch – with eggs, hash brows, avocado and veggies.

29. Ayla

We zijn grote fans van Ayla's pancakes, zoals die met salted caramel of met Manchego kaas en gebakken ei. Maar ze hebben nog veel meer! Wat dacht je van tapas voor brunch? Of een broodje met zalm, halloumi, avocado of fetakaas? Als je niet zo’n ster bent in het maken van keuzes, kan je ook kiezen voor de brunchdeal. Denk aan een sandwich met avocado en zalm, yoghurt met zelfgemaakte granola en seizoensfruit, een warme amandelcroissant, koffie of thee en vers sinaasappelsap.

At Ayla you can not only enjoy a delicious dinner, but also a Mediterranean brunch. That’s because the shared dining dishes can be ordered all day long!

It is a cozy restaurant with a great atmosphere and when the sun shines I definitely recommend sitting on their nice terrace!

30. Guliano

Je kent het wel: het is zondagochtend, je bent veel te lang in je bed blijven liggen door de avond ervoor en je hebt trek in een flinke maaltijd. Bel je vrienden, moeder of lover op, kleed je aan en geniet van een uitgebreide brunch op een van onderstaande plekken!

Sometimes you just want a good sandwich where the use of toppings is anything but modest. Our favorite choice is definitely Guliano.

This restaurant is a mix of Italian and New York flavors and on the menu you will find sandwiches such as Ed’s Pastrami, Bistecca, Vitello Tonnato, Gallo, the GULIANO’s Truffle burger and much more.
