This location has easy access by tram and metro on the doorstep and is also easily walkable from central Amsterdam in good weather. With a corner location, at a glance the façade is very monochrome in black and white, but on the inside is quite eclectic and referencing an American Diner and with so much more style decorated in vintage furniture, an old bar top adorned with art deco wall sconce lamps and even a hanging chandelier.
Trays of eggs among other breakfast essentials are stacked on the open kitchen shelves next to the bar and helmed by two young ladies during our morning visit who manage the orders with a swift and speedy manner. Without any pretension, you can’t help but feel lucky to have chosen this address for a great breakfast while many bon vivants focus on lunch or dinner instead.
The glass rim is dipped in black pepper and it has to be one of the best Bloody Mary’s we have ever tasted. And mind you, Gs de Pijp insists on one Bloody Mary at a time as they are freshly made by the skillful hands to ensure the quality is maintained. Sober drinks, tipsy drinks or just hot drinks, you have already had a few laughs to set the morning mood! If you were to gulp it down like a horse, slow down cowboy! Of course, no breakfast is complete without food, so after perusing such a tempting menu, the surprises kept on coming.
