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 shop for designers clothes 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 (Thu – Sat) in the evening and take away all day long. They have excellent kosher Jewish/Mediterranean food fusion, all reasonably priced. You can choose 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 if I am not too hungry, of course with a nice wine. Try it and share it with friends like a wonderful tasting of 9 different small dishes with home baked bread. Or what would you think of Arook thayin: chicken rolls with relish, fresh soup and delicious salads?
Check the daily specials on the chalkboard. For sweet toothed people; try their homemade cakes like the kosher Dutch apple crumble. Personally I love their fig cake with whipped cream :-). Love ice? Try the Prof.Grunschnabel vegetarian, vegan ice range!
They’ve excellent coffee, organic champagne, wines, modern interior, nice atmosphere, hip people and when the weather is good go sit outside.
A place not to be missed when visiting Rotterdam.
