Breakfast, brunch, lunch, coffee take your pick, all of them are equally good at Picknick and as I am often in that neighbourhood I think it’s the perfect place to have a meal before dashing on again. Located conveniently near the shopping area and the Markthal (check the Markt Hall Rotterdam article) Picknick is the perfect place to sit and catch up.
It’s the kind of place that makes you feel good, with drawings on the ceiling and the daily specials written on the concrete wall. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming with green checked tablecloths, wooden furniture and very friendly staff. The menu is great, with a good selection of teas and coffees and tasty, healthy meals and snacks. It’s even better in the summer when the back doors are wide open and the picnic tables in the back yard are crammed with happy people drinking fresh orange juice.
It’s open every day of the week, and is nearly always full come lunchtime, so come early and don’t miss out on the brownies.
