The Amsterdam Food Hotspot: Metropolitain

When I am in Amsterdam and have to go somewhere I usually take the tram. It's the best way to get around in the city -besides cycling of course- and this way you get to see some of the gorgeous buildings too. A place that I see a lot when I take the tram is Café de Paris. A restaurant that has been talked about A LOT. This café also has a brunch spot right underneath the stairs: Metropolitain. It's the favourite Sunday brunch place of many bloggers and even on a Saturday my friend and I spotted a popular Dutch blogger. How exciting?

Now this isn't just a café that is talked about a lot. One visit to this place and you know exactly why people come back to eat the lovely French toast and eggs Metropolitain. We went around 12:30pm on a Saturday and we were quite surprised when we managed to find an empty seat. There were some spots outside too but we decided to sit inside and enjoy the perfect Instagramable interior.

We both ordered the French toast. I had seen this dish on Instagram a lot and knew that it's the thing that you should order when you go and eat there. The other things on the menu looked pretty good too, so I will definitely go back for another round. I also went with homemade lemonade. There were three flavours, but I chose Limoncello. Homemade lemonade with actual lemons sounds pretty amazing to me and it tasted really good.

As Instagram addicts we first had a short photoshoot when our food arrived. The presentation of the slices of French toast was amazing and we both had to contain ourselves before immediately digging in. That first bite was heaven though. Love me some French toast!

The toast was served with maple syrup, blueberry mascarpone and topped off with lots of red fruit. It was honestly one of the best French toast I have ever tasted and for the past few days I have constantly been daydreaming about that amazing meal. I must go back soon!

I really recommend popping into Metropolitain when you are in Amsterdam. The price is quite good and the food is delicious too. Ooh and a few gorgeous Instagram pics never hurt, right?

What is your favourite brunch dish?
