Wow. What a great find! When staying in central Amsterdam, I've found that a good breakfast/brunch spot can mean a bit of a trek outside central - Not wanting to travel far, I was determined to find a good spot less than a mile from our airbnb.
After two disappointing mornings this past weekend of finding Gartine booked up, my partner and I wandered a little ways down the canals looking for someplace that would be serving a late brunch with a bit of a view.
Singel 404 looked unimposing, with a small seating area inside and some riverside tables across the road - the amount of local traffic coming through made us think it might be a good spot to check out for a noon brunch. And I'm so glad we did.
Drinks: Hands down the best fresh squeezed orange juice I've ever had. My only regret is not getting the large - definitely give it a try!
Coffee: After a couple disappointing coffee runs in other Amsterdam cafes, I was quite pleased with my black coffee
Food: Though a number of the sandwiches looked appealing, I decided to go for the Singel special - Eggplant, zucchini, fresh mozzarella, cucumbers, homemade pesto, tomatoes - etc. Immediately after ordering, I had major buyers remorse - why was I buying a sandwich for breakfast?! But wow, I'm so glad I did. The sandwich came out openfaced and loaded with veggies - and so incredibly delicious - perfectly done, there was an explosion of taste in every bite. My partner, on the other hand, had the fried eggs with tomatoes and bread - He too was totally smitten with his choice and for the first time ever we were both perfectly content to each go about having our own meals totally delighted with our picks.
Will definitely be looking to come back here next time we are in Amsterdam, a perfectly located brunch/lunch spot.
