Brunch time @Pluk

If you love the Nordic style, flowers, super trendy smoothies, cake and pancakes, then you cannot miss Pluk. Located in one of the ‘9 Straatjes’ (one of the best areas in Amsterdam), this coffee place quickly became a must see for the ‘Amsterdammer’ and, also thanks to huge success on their Instagram page, for tourists.

If you love food photography this is the place for you, even a “photo shy” person like me felt very confident in shooting like crazy: in fact, most of the people there are taking photos and how can you blame them? This place is filled with gorgeousness! 

We went for a quick brunch and we surely weren’t let down: everything is so bright, airy and transmits happy vibes. Plus the pancakes I had were divine!
Not only can you fill your belly at Pluk but you can empty your wallet too! They sell very pretty decorative items and accessories (I’m obsessed with their marble phone case and their drink glasses, I guess I must go back!). Oh and did I mention the amazing chocolate bars they make? Just their packaging is worth it ๐Ÿ˜‰

The only downside is that the breakfast area is upstairs and only reachable via a very pretty but also very Dutch (steep!!) staircase. Not a problem for most people but with a crazy toddler like Catherine it’s not so much fun: she thought the stair was some sort of entertainment and wanted to climb on and off all the time. But if your child is happy to sit for a while then no worries…after all Catherine’s terrible twos are in full swing ๐Ÿ˜‰ N.B. If you go with a buggy then you will need to leave it downstairs.

I absolutely recommend Pluk, even for a quick smoothie or for a nice look around ๐Ÿ˜‰
