Best Vegan Pancakes at The Meets Eatery, Amsterdam

 

Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day and what’s a better way to start the day than with some pancakes! Being such a pancake lover I decided to go for a vegan pancake hunt in my favourite city, Amsterdam!

I quickly found a cafe that is now one of my favourite spots in this beautiful city. The Meets Eatery is a cafe that serves one of my favourite all time breakfasts. It’s located in a trendy and cosy part of the city that is full of life and energy.

I love to sit on the terrace in the sun, watching people go by on their cycles while enjoying my cup of coffee and of course, digging into the best vegan pancakes I have ever tasted.

The Meets Eatery serves the most delicious vegan meals that are home-made and locally sourced. Everything on the menu is free from refined sugars and additives, and are mostly organic. I fell in love with how vibrant and exciting their menu is. However, even the classics like a good cup of coffee and a vegan croissant are an absolute winner.

 

 

 

What to have

 

 

 

However, the ultimate breakfast is the vegan ‘Apple Cinnamon Pancakes‘. (9.50/8.30 Gbp) These pancakes are made using spelt flour which makes them super healthy but will also keep you full for longer – which helps you with your diet. They are served with warm apple that just makes you think of cosy winter nights. The cinnamon gives a warming sweet flavour while the crunchy nuts that are sprinkled on top give a pleasant crunch. The combination of flavours and textures is so incredible. In fact, it’s so good, I bet no-one would ever believe the fact that they are vegan.

 

 

Lunch/Dinner

 

 

Another great lunch or starter for in the evening is the ‘Red Lentil Soup‘ (S 6.50/5.70 Gbp, L 8.50/7.45 Gbp). It consists of red lentils, carrot, ginger, turmeric and coconut milk. It’s a very comforting and creamy soup which is full of flavour.

However, if you are a little more hungry then you have to try the ‘Mexican Veggie Burger‘ (11.50/10 Gbp). It consists of sweet potato, black beans, quinoa and is served with avocado or vegan mayo. It’s an amazing treat that you won’t even have to feel guilty for afterwards!

If you’ve still got a little spot then I highly suggest you to try one of their great vegan desserts or sweets. I mean, doesn’t a vegan ‘Chocolate Tart‘ just sound like the ultimate end of a great evening?! The tart is made with peanut and dark chocolate and finished of with a caramel peanut sauce. In other words, heaven on a plate!

Canals in Amsterdam are frozen and making your way around town has never been so fun

 

As if the streets of Amsterdam could become any more beautiful.

Here I am standing on the crackling ice surrounded by the most beautiful architecture. Children chasing each other on the ice as they slip around the corner. As I take a deep breath the cold air creeps up my nose and cuts as a knife. Its a beautiful sight and feeling that I rarely experience in the month of March when in Amsterdam.

The last time we were able to make our way trough town on ice-skates was in 2012. Now we are so lucky to set eyes on this magical sight yet again. Its a winter wonderland that we don’t get to experience often and its dreamy!

 

 

At sunrise the early birds make their way on the ice and take advantage of this rare spectacle. Several nights ago the temperate dropped to -15c creating a thick layer of ice. But you’ll have to be quick as the sun is coming out and nights are no longer cold enough to make the ice thicker. So get your ice-skates out and get your moves on the ice because this is something you might not witness for a very long time!
