Top choice coffee in Noord

Image by Paul Fitzpatrick Lonely Planet

Rotterdam's first artisan coffee roastery (there are now 12), Man Met Bril sources direct-trade, 90% organic beans from across the globe and then roasts them in this hip space under a railway viaduct north of Centraal Station. The on-site cafe offers expertly prepared brews, cakes and sandwiches. Arrive before 10am to take advantage of the generous and dirt-cheap breakfast deal (€6.66).
