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!


1. Nine Bar

Nine Bar is located in a lovely area of Rotterdam, called MaHo. Surrounded by nice little boutiques and cafes, you will find a cute little coffee place where they serve delicious cappuccinos, iced coffees, americanos and lattes, as well as teas and smoothies.

If you’re hungry, they also have quite some options: overnight oats, avocado toast, many grilled cheese options and delicious pastries. Take a seat outside, watch people pass by and enjoy your drink!

2. Hopper

Hopper certainly deserves a place in this list of best coffee places in Rotterdam, because Hopper’s award winning coffee is for sure worth a try. There are so many different ways of drinking your coffee here, and they are all made from ‘honest’ beans.

And the delicious smell of the freshly baked Hopper bread can not be resisted either… Enjoy a nice sandwich with your coffee or take something home – anything is possible here.

3. Harvest Coffee Brewers

The owners of Harvest Coffee Brewers used to work in Melbourne, where making coffee is considered a true art. With their obtained experience and skills, they returned to Rotterdam to set up a coffee bar as they know them in Melbourne: with delicious food and the perfect cup of coffee. 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.

4. Bonza

De heerlijke koffie van Bonza is van hoge kwaliteit! Daarnaast heeft Bonza echt een heel leuk interieur (denk aan leuke vintage salontafel, mooi Perzisch kleed en mooie lampen). Wat Bonza helemaal bijzonder maakt is dat je er heel goed kunt flexwerken!

Looking for a flexible workspace in Rotterdam with good WiFi and quality coffee? Then definitely visit Bonza!

Bonza is located in the creative hub of Broeinest, a large space with enough places to get to work or do some studying.

In addition, this place really got a great atmosphere, which makes it perfect for catching up while enjoying coffee, sweet treats or a tasty toastie.

30ml Coffee Roasters is a great hotspot for good coffee. Their drinks menu consists of black coffee, white coffee, ice coffee, but also all kinds of juices, matcha tea, soft drinks and “feeling special specials”.

The breakfast menu is just as extensive as their drink menu, with delicious options such as Eggs Benedict, avocado toast, American pancakes and breakfast burritos. We have tasted the Eggs Benedict ourselves and we approve!
