Breakfast Spot
“B&R is a New Zealand style café served with a heavy dose of Brazil. It’s our piece of home away from home (and home is along way away). The open kitchen produces all your favourite brunch dishes, fresh fruit salads, and kiwi-twisted baked goods all day long. All our cakes are made in-house and our Ozone coffee is always served as doubles.”

Cheery neighborhood restaurant serving comfort classics
“There's a reason this restaurant is always filled to the brink, and you'll quickly find out when you book a table here. It's not only because their 5 course meal is only 50 euros. The atmosphere is always buzzing. And the creative chef has a long track record of pleasing his recurring customers with his ever changing menu. And most importantly, they know their wines. ”

Shopping Centre
“There is a lot to see and do in Amsterdam, all depending on your taste. If we were in the neighborhood, you could run into us and other locals at the small shopping center “Brazilië” at Oostelijke Handelskade (5 min walk). It has a Jumbo supermarket (cheaper), Albert Heijn supermarket (more expensive and fancier), Etos and Kruidvat drugstores, butcher, bakery (meh, Albert Heijn is better), liquor store, etc. o Tip 1: try some great Dutch herring, the famous street snack, at the fish store right here. Or get their also good “kibbeling” (fried cod) with sauce. o Tip 2: the Dutch street snack is of course french fries, to be bought at a snack bar. The snack bar “Kwalitaria” in the shopping center is the real deal. Make sure to get mayonaise on your fries, or peanut sauce. OR BOTH. Seriously. It’s called ‘patat oorlog’ (war fries) and comes with sprinkled raw onion (optional).”
