AMSTERDAM – Since the Vegan Challenge is still at hand I thought it’s best to stick with the theme and write some more about vegan stuff! Today I would like to share some of my favourite vegan spots in Amsterdam. Fortunately, Amsterdam is one of the best cities in the Netherlands if you want to eat out and eat vegan. If you have more suggestions, feel free to share them with us!
- De Peper – Organic Cultural Kitchen
If you are an easy eater and like to be surprised, De Peper is one of the best Vegan spots in town. De Peper is a non-commercial, non-profit organic cafe project located within the former Netherlands Film Academy, situated at Overtoom 301. They have a set menu that changes daily. All of their food is fresh made and 100% vegan and organic. De Peper is open for food on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday from 7 pm till 8.30 pm. The price for one meal (soup + main dish) is between 7 and 10 euros.
- Vegabond Café
Vegabond Café is a cafe within a store, situated on the Leliegracht 16. You can go there for a great lunch to eat in or to take away. They serve coffee, juices, wraps, sandwiches and cake! There is a small seating area overlooking the canal, and while you’re there you can get your groceries as well.

You can get a starter from 3.50 euros, and a main course is about 13 euros. The kitchen is open from 12 pm till 9.30 pm.
