The Lobby at Hotel V. Nes 49, 1012 KD Amsterdam 020 662 3233
You will probably know by now that I am a huge blueberry pancake fan. Seriously…I could have them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Everywhere we go, it’s the first thing I look for on the menu. I fell in love with Nantucket last year and Black Eyed Susan’s pancakes were the best ever. Lyst in Copenhagen perfected blueberry pancakes for brunch. And the Conservatorium Hotel breakfast quickly became our hometown champion. Until last week. I’m not saying we got a new number one, but there is some serious competition in town.
I’m talking about The Lobby at Hotel V. Located behind the shopping craziness of the Kalverstraat and Rokin area you’ll find this stylish bistro on the downstairs floor of a really cool hotel. The black chesterfields, cosy book corner and beautiful glass light bulbs make it a real inspiration. And guess what…the menu is even better!
I’m not just talking pancakes here, they have more “manly” or savoury options like Eggs Royale or the delicious flammkuchen (a thin crusted pizza) topped with sour cream, pancetta, veggies and olives. Yum!
