When you”™re in search for a healthy organic breakfast, lunch or brunch and don”™t feel like preparing something at home, but still want to have that cosy feeling of being at home, this is the perfect place! It”™s like walking into a country-house kitchen and living room all in one. Three lovely, friendly women are the owners of Beter & Leuk and can often be found in the open kitchen preparing all delicious meals while making you feel at home instantly.
Their motto is to ”˜Serve Good Food for You”™. When enjoying the homemade granola with blackberry and apple compote, it definitely feels like that! Beter & Leuk aims to use mainly biological, seasonal and local products and serves vegetarian, vegan and gluten free food. While waiting for your freshly prepared buckwheat pancakes with date-cream, fresh fruit, chia seeds and soy based Chai Tea latte, you can have a look in the back of the shop, where they sell art, clothes, jewellery and books.
Highly recommended is the high tea! You can either choose the ”˜classic one”™ that serves delicious homemade scones with cottage cream, biological jam and an awesome selection of homemade cakes, or the ”˜healthy one”™ for those who prefer a salad, soup and a selection of (equally awesome!) healthy homemade sweets. Both options serve unlimited tea and your choice of a freshly squeezed juice or smoothie. It”™s also possible to request a gluten free and/or vegan option. Do make a reservation, if you wish to go on a high tea date with your lover, mom or friends!
For those who are in a rush: they recently opened a take-away shop right next door, so you can bring your fresh ginger-lemon tea and Halloumi burger with quinoa salad, roasted vegetables and avocado straight to work or just enjoy your meal on a bench next to the Amstel, Amsterdam”™s biggest river, which is at the end of the street.
Check out their website to see when the variety of workshops, such as ”˜Yoga and Food”™ are scheduled!
