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.
The truffle mayonnaise is definitely something you don’t want to miss when visiting Guliano. Ideal for a Sunday brunch to forget your hangover.

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!
Meent 88, 3011 JP Rotterdam
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.

We love Wes! We know this restaurant, with its references to the film world, as the place where you can relax on the terrace with a glass of wine and tasty (Tel Aviv-inspired) dishes to share.
But did you know that they also serve breakfast, lunch and brunch? For example, try the Grand Brunch for two, consisting of two sandwiches of your choice, yogurt with fresh fruit, a small salad and a piece of pie.
Of course you can also go for the individual dishes, such as a sandwich with hummus & veggies, a chia bowl or a delicious croissant.
Benthuizerstraat 94a, 3035 CR Rotterdam
