Hopper Rotterdam – Coffee, breakfast, lunch & wine

This is a place that I love to go to for breakfast. All the food is homemade and I like their sourdough bread with Stolwijk cheese for lunch or just enjoy a large cappuccino. They offer free Wi-Fi and newspapers.

In a typical post-war building with tons of light, high ceilings and a spacious set-up (with a terrace out front), you’ll find Hopper, a prize-winning coffee bar at Schiedamse Vest 146. 

Meeting friends or colleagues to catch up or a working lunch is possible here as they have a nice area upstairs with tables and a great view below. There’s also a special corner with toys and books for (young) children.

It’s all about serving good and honest food, home-baked and delicious cakes, croque monsieurs, sandwiches, soup and good salads. Also try their excellent wines.

A nice detail is the tap to get your own glass of water. They have a large reading table, small side tables and an open kitchen.

This is the first place where I’d heard of ‘slow coffee’ and trust me when I say that coffee is serious business here! If you are interested in learning more about coffee, just ask the barista or you can always join a ‘cupping session’ or workshops that they organize here (with or without the cooperation of Specialty Coffee).

second Hopper can be visited in the “Old North” neighbourhood which has its own coffee beans roasting machine. It is a cool place in a nice part of Rotterdam worth exploring.
