  • My love for @thebreakfastclubnld is so real that I’m claiming it the best breakfast in Amsterdam! 🍶🍽🍓
I’m sharing photos and details on the blog today - check out the link in my bio.
  • New post is up on the blog (and on @wholesomeandhungry). Wanna eat summer in a bowl? Recipe is in the link in my bio 🍑
  • The only thing not included in this Saturday morning snap is the the adorable pup curled up next to me (he's camera shy)
  • Scrolling through old pics this morning and I honestly don't know what I did in life that made me lucky enough to have this little baby-angel-turkey in my life. Even on the shittiest day, this adorable ass face makes everything right in the world.
  • I made this last weekend to feature on the @wholesomeandhungry page and I'm still dreaming about it.
  • Remember when I got to eat this beauty at @thebreakfastclubamsterdam in the middle of Amsterdam? No? Well I do and it was damn good.
  • The weeks we spent in Bali were some of the best weeks of my life. The people of Indonesia, the food, the culture...everything about this country is incredible. If you don’t already know, the city of Lombok (right near Bali) has experienced multiple earthquakes which has caused many areas to literally crumble. Hundreds have died and even more are still missing. There are some incredible people in the city helping the locals and assisting with aid. Both @mattyower and @rjbrowntown are two of these people. Be sure to check out their stories to see what is happening. I have changed the link in my bio to their donation page. Anything that you can donate will help them greatly. (Note: photo is from Bali last year)
  • Friday Fact: I. Love. Smoothies. I love them so much that I have been literally living off of them this summer. It's been a while since I have posted on @wholesomeandhungry but I think I am going to get back to adding content on that page AND I am going to start sharing some of the recipes over on the blog. Today I posted my recipe for this blackberry smoothie bowl that I literally cannot stop making. So grab your blender and get to it! Oh, and follow the @wholesomeandhungry page. K thanks... byyeeeeeee

It seems like only a few days ago, I was sipping a heavenly cappuccino and stuffing my face with the most mouthwatering pancakes right in the heart of Amsterdam. Unfortunately for me, that was well over a year ago. Even with all of the time that has passed, I can still remember the incredible morning that Aaron and I rented bikes to cruise through the city center and happened to stumble upon The Breakfast Club.

Now, we ate a lot of good food during our time in Europe, so the fact that I can remember just how incredible this breakfast was says something. In fact, I loved The Breakfast Club so much that I just had to share it with you all.

The Breakfast Club has multiple locations. We went to the one at Bellamystraat 2-h 1053 BL Amsterdam.

The first thing you notice when you walk into The Breakfast Club is how adorable it is. The multi-level room is eye catching with clean lines and simple decor. The staff was also super friendly (a big bonus when you eat out). We were in awe of the staircase seating which seemed like an illusion or a sick joke on the servers who had to navigate the steps as they delivered plates of food. They also had this adorable work area where you could prop up a laptop and work while stuffing your face with delicious food.

I don’t actually remember a cup of bad coffee in Europe (if fact I am positive that it does not exist), and these cappuccinos live up to the hype. They were a smooth blend of espresso and the cookie that accompanied it didn’t hurt either. Per most of the restaurants we go to, Aaron and I struggled with what to order. This is usually because we want to order everything, so to start we opted for their crunchy granola and fruit bowl which did not disappoint. Talk about fresh ingredients…this fruitaholic (me) fell madly in love with literally every bite.

To pay homage to our Philadelphia roots, Aaron ordered a their take on a cheesesteak. Although it was nothing like a real Philadelphia cheesesteak, Aaron was obsessed with it! As soon as he finished the entire thing, he immediately wanted to order another. That’s a lot coming from someone who almost always leaves with leftovers.

I remember there being so many things that I wanted to try, but because pancakes and I are besties, I had to indulge in these fruit covered cakes. They were divine! So fluffy and paired perfectly with ripe berries; each bite was better than the one before.

Note: Our time in Amsterdam was prior to me going plant based so yes, the pancakes included bacon (which Aaron mostly ate) and are likely made with dairy products.

Feel free to share some of your favorite Amsterdam eats in the comment section below!
