Staring at Jacob is a great brunch spot in Oud-West. It had been on my list for a while but even though I live only a couple of minutes away I never managed to stop by. All of this changed on my birthday last week when my two best friends treated me to brunch here to regain our strengths after a great birthday party the night before, it was exactly what I needed!
The menu is really original and everything sounded so tasty that it was hard to choose. In the end I went for the all-around: Buttermilk pancakes, maple syrup, bacon, sausages, egg and fries. A great choice, but the fish and chips and the omelet with black beans and chorizo also looked and tasted great. Next time I might go for The Rasco: Fried chicken and waffles. Sounds like a strange combination but it must be good.
The super-tasty and original menu, delicious cocktails, cool staff and great atmosphere make Staring at Jacob the perfect place for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Sometimes they do pop up dinners, think taco’s or burgers. I heard the taco’s are great so I will definitely have to try them as tacos are my all-time favorite food. Can’t wait!
