Amsterdam on a budget: The Cheapest Breakfasts – Travel to The Netherlands, Holland

This week we discover the cheapest breakfasts in Amsterdam.

Places visited:

B&B Amsterdam. I love this place for their lunches! For this breakfast test they were not the cheapest though…

Ikea Amsterdam – Budget breakfast for one euro only! Pretty far out of town though…

Hema and Bakker Bart on the Kalverstraat. Right at the center. Note Hema opens at 9 o’clock but Bakker Bart only at 9.30.

Jumbo foodmarket. It’s in north, but one of my favorites. Only 1,50 euro – very good quality food and a great ambiance. If the last spot wouldn’t be there, this would be my favorite by far!

La Place at the top of the OBA (Amsterdam library). Here you can create your own breakfast, with cinnamon cookies or yoghurt, fresh fruit, granola, eggs – you name it. When the weather is good, go sit outside, the views over Amsterdam are amazing! For 3,25 euro each – you’ll have an amazing starter of the day.

If you want to know anything about any of the places we visited (because you’re going there too?), send a FB message on our page or leave a comment. I really honestly try my to answer everyone.

To be sure not to miss out on any adventures!



CAMERA equipment I use

**Canon Powershot N100 – (affiliate)
A budget option I loved very much for my first year of travel vlogging.

** Sony RX100 mk4 – (affiliate)
Oh my, how I love this new camera! Use this one from the Batanes series (Philippines II) onwards.

** GoPro HERO4 Silver – (affiliate)
I mainly use this camera for under water shots. Love the little screen at the back so your shots will not be a surprise till you’re at your computer

** Joby Gorilla Pod – (affiliate)
Small and compact, will stable shots. Love this mini tripod. Especially when traveling alone it’s a great help.
