Great breakfast spots in Rotterdam

This city once welcomed one of the first breakfast bars in the Netherlands, and now all-day breakfast is indispensable.

Here’s our top 10 list of great breakfast addresses to make it a little easier for you!


You can enjoy a good cup of coffee, breakfast or lunch at Picknick. The interior is raw and authentic and the atmosphere is casual. The menu consists of healthy and organic dishes with seasonal products.

Lilith Coffee

If you fancy a good cup of coffee and an extensive breakfast, visit all-day breakfast bar Lilith Coffee on the Nieuwe Binnenweg. They serve everything from American pancakes and eggs Benedict to lighter dishes like granola and acai. The vintage furniture and plants give the interior a cosy living room feel.

Arzu the Foodbar Supplier

If you love pancakes as much as we do, then visit Arzu the Foodbar Supplier as soon as possible. The hilarious owner Arzu Pinar and her friend Em know exactly how to make pancakes: thick, fluffy, and topped with delicious toppings.

By Jarmusch

According to By Jarmusch, located in Het Industrie Gebouw, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That is why they believe in ‘all-day breakfast’. Although breakfast is the focus throughout the day, you can also order other dishes at this American Breakfast Diner; from classic to modern.

Teds is a unique rooftop restaurant right in the centre of Rotterdam. Let’s get ready for waffle fries & cocktails in the morning or fruity yoghurt, poached eggs and French toast at 4pm. At Teds they serve their entire menu all day, every day.

Breakfast in Rotterdam HQ
