Around the Witte the With square (Schiedamsevest 2-148 where you’ll find some of my favourite restaurants like Dertien, Gusto and Hopper), next to Margreet Olsthoorn‘s clothes shop and close to the Maritime Museum, is The Bagel Bakery.
Go to Bagel Bakery for breakfast in the morning, lunch & high tea at noon and dinner (Sat) in the evening and take away all day long. They have excellent kosher Jewish/Mediterranean food fusion, all reasonably priced. You can choose from different types of bagels with delicious original toppings like hummus, Tarragon chicken salad or old cheese with truffle oil for example.
But they serve more than just bagels :-).
Try the Bagel Burger, I often order the mini tasting or the large mezze for when I am not too hungry, of course with a nice wine. Try it and share it with friends like the wonderful tasting of 9 different small dishes with their delicious home baked bread.
The daily specials can be found on the chalkboard. If you have a sweet tooth ; try their homemade cakes like the kosher Dutch apple crumble. Personally I love their fig cake with whipped cream.
They have excellent coffee, organic champagne, wines, a modern interior, great atmosphere and nice staff.
A place not to be missed when visiting Rotterdam.
