If you read my blogs often or just follow me on Instagram, you know how much brunch means to me. So, when I was going to Amsterdam again (after three months… lol) I knew that another great brunch was waiting for me. I just didn’t know which one.
So … there was a time to take a look at Instagram. Searching for the best places turned out well. We tried The Greenwoods Singel and Bakers & Roasters brunch in February, so this time we chose Dignita. Yup, the mouthwatering photos and a promise of a cute interior bought us in seconds.
Dignita Amsterdam location
Dignita recently opened a second location (Hoftuin), but we decided to go to the original one next to the Vondelpark. We didn’t make a reservation so we had to wait for the table for around 5 minutes. The service was quick and the waitress was really nice, so we ordered drinks and food.
Fooooood. Brunch – whole day, every day
At Dignita they prepare their own fresh, baked goods; dishes from scratch, and the incredible avocado mash with feta cheese and pomegranate seeds. All items are ethically and locally sourced when this is possible, and they are always using fresh ingredients.
Ah, brunch food. I went with my (quite regular) choice of Eggs Royale which here is called the Salmon Royale. Homemade hot, smoked salmon, signature potato rosti (that was new for me!), free-range poached eggs and apple cider hollandaise which was as well a bit different and very tasty, and Nina ordered Benny-Boy (with crispy bacon). What to say? Everything was more than enjoyable, the flavors were yummy and rich, and we almost struggled a bit to finish the meals.
They also have a special kids menu and dishes suitable for vegetarians and vegans, as well as gluten-free options. I have to try their Ox Cheek Burger the next time I’m visiting.
Dignita Amsterdam – “Not for Sale” program
I always take a look in the internet at the history of the place and I found out that Dignita Amsterdam is part of the “Not for Sale” enterprise model, which means that 100 % of its profit goes towards supporting a cause. Which cause? Slavery and human trafficking. 🙁 They also employ some people which need help and donate profits every year, so I found this really positive!
Next time I’m in Amsterdam I’ll surely plan another visit to Dignita and enjoy brunch and lunch! 🙂 Again – too full for a cake or dessert, so I’ll have to return! Let me know if you have visited Dignita Amsterdam before and make sure you check them on Facebook.
