De Pijp's thriving foodie scene is experimental and multicultural yet also quintessentially Dutch. Choices include street-food stalls, salad bars, cheap, filling Surinamese and Asian spots, on-trend addresses like the world's first all-avocado cafe, gastronomic standouts and atmospheric bruin cafés (pubs) serving food.

Brunch is especially good in this neighbourhood, with many cafes specialising in exceptional mid-morning menus. Albert Cuypstraat, Ferdinand Bolstraat and Ceintuurbaan are ideal starting points.
