Recently Marije started blogging for Weekends in Rotterdam about fun hotspots, art, vintage shopping and good parties in Rotterdam.
For her first article she had breakfast at Nine Bar Rotterdam, a lovely hotspot at the Maho Kwartier. Read her first review below!
Check out more amazing breakfast spots in Rotterdam!
Not far from Rotterdam Blaak you can find Nine Bar. The name Nine Bar is inspired by an optimal espresso that is made with 9 bar. Not only do they serve wonderful coffee, they also offer breakfast, lunch and cakes.
My friend Julia and I went to find out. What moment could be better to visit Nine Bar than a Monday morning? When we arrive at this hotspot the sun is shining and people are enjoying their coffee while reading the newspaper: a perfect way to start the day.
Continental breakfast & cinnamon bread with jam and yoghurt
Nine Bar offers a variety of food and drinks such as homemade smoothies, continental breakfast, avocado toast, a BGLT-sandwich and cakes. As one of my favourite breakfast options is a continental breakfast, my choice was easily made. For those who don’t know: a continental breakfast is a more ‘light’ breakfast as opposed to an English one.
As the sun is getting warmer – we are in the middle of the heat wave – my continental breakfast is served and it looks delicious. On my plate I find a boiled egg, toast, a croissant, butter, jam and cheese (for the non-veggies: you can also order Parma ham with it). My food is served with orange juice and, off course, lots and lots of coffee.
My friend Julia got cinnamon bread with jam and yoghurt to dip in. This is not only a pleasure for the eye, as it matches her outfit really well, but also tastes very good.
Nine Bar shows how to serve great coffee as well as great food. One of the main goals of Nine Bar is to make customers forget about their office routine and simply relax and enjoy the moment. As we walk away two hours later, we can say that they live up to this goal.
My first experience at Nine Bar made me curious to try out all the other stuff off their menu. Big chance you fill find me at Nine Bar next Monday morning!
