I’ve been dropping by Kessens Amsterdam for many years now. It’s a little laid back restaurant serving a breakfast and lunch menu (alongside great wine and classic cocktails) in the Nine Streets District.
With a no frills, chilled out kinda vibe, it tends to attract the locals. And I love feeling like one of the locals myself as I rock up for a tasty sandwich and a glass of red.
Kessens Amsterdam is located within the Nine Streets district in central Amsterdam. It’s right by the canals and within easy reach of both the Pulitzer and Soho House. Pancakes and Goodies, some more of my Amsterdam faves, are also close by.
A laidback lunch with the locals.
