There are plenty of places in Rotterdam where you can go for a nice cup of coffee. But of course, with so many options, it is hard to make a decision. But no worries, we are here to help! We’ve been to a lot of great coffee shops in Rotterdam and decided to share some of the best spots with you.
Below we share our favourite coffee places in Rotterdam!
Nice is located on the Hoogstraat in a beautiful light corner building. It’s a cool neighborhood restaurant with excellent coffee and food. Their interior is minimalist, with eye-catchers such as the large mirror wall (where you will also find the secret door to the toilet) and stainless steel bar where you can order all the goodies.
Nice is a great place to catch up with friends, sitting at the large table inside or on the windowsill. Outside is also a great option on sunny days.
On their changing menu you will find different types of (ice) coffee, juices and kombuchas. For food they offer sandwiches, granola bowls and more. In addition, their homemade pastries are really worth ordering!
Hoogstraat 42, 3011 PR Rotterdam
This aesthetically pleasing, minimalist coffee shop can be found on the Van Oldenbarneveltstraat. The sand-coloured walls, beautiful wooden design chairs and calm music makes it a very relaxing place.
What can you order here? Of course a good cup of coffee, but also a delicious matcha and chai latte. If you want something sweet, you can choose from cinnamon rolls and banana bread from the display case.
Are you visiting for breakfast or lunch? What about French toast with seasonal fruit, honey butter and caramelized hazelnut and vanilla cream? Or go for savoury and choose the burrata with sourdough bread, cherry tomatoes, figs and basil oil.

The owners of Harvest Coffee Brewers used to work in Melbourne, where making coffee is considered a true art.

In our opinion, their mission has certainly been successful.
At Harvest Coffee Brewers you enjoy sitting by the water, drinking a really good cup of coffee and eating delicious avocado toast, eggs benedict or – our favorite – french toast.
