All the spots presented:
Vegan food & coffee in Amsterdam
€ = pretty cheap
€€ = averagely expensive
€€€ = expensive
YUSU – €€ – This super inclusive coffee place offers the best drinks and bites possible. Whenever I’m in the need of the perfect cappuccino or iced matcha latte, I’ll go here. They serve only plant based milk and have vegan bites too.
SAINT-JEAN – €€€ – This 100% vegan bakery and speciality coffee bar is my absolute dream. Vegan pistache croissants and cinnamon rolls make the perfect breakfast.
THE BAB – € – A quick and delicious dinner/afternoon snack this place is for you. Located near the beautiful Oosterpark you can either grab a bimibap to go to eat in the park or dine in.
Hearth – €€€ – Lovely plant based restaurant with unique, fresh and delicious foods. It’s a little pricier, but it is the perfect place for a date night.
Mr. & Mrs. Watson – €€€ – The famous vegan cheese brand Mr. & Mrs. Watson has now a fully plant based restaurant in Amsterdam. We had the big cheese platter with extra fries, salads and veggies and it was so, so good.
Vegan Junk Food Bar – €€ – The Vegan Junk Food Bar really understood that vegans too sometimes wanna grab fat and fried food. Their burgers are really worth a try!
Meatless District – €€ – I haven’t been here yet, but heard some great stories about them. Meatless District is open for brunch, bar snacks and dinner, serving creative cocktails, vegan wines and other vegan delights all day to accompany the food.
Mooshka Vegan Soul Food – €€ – Since I’ve been at Mooshka, I can’t stop thinking about it. They serve amazing dinner – I had vegan buffalo wings – and more importantly, they have vegan milkshakes on the menu!
Koffie Academie – €€ – Good coffee is always important to me. At this place, you will be sure to find unique coffees and very well balanced out cappuccini and more.
Mana Mana – € – This is a great place to grab all different kinds of little foods and share it with each other. I can really recommend their polenta fries!
The Lebanese Sajeria – € – Here you’ll find freshly made Libanese classics. I love to get a wrap and a little cup of soup for lunch!
PLUK – €€€ – Delicious lunch spot at the 9 straatjes. But besides lunch, they also have amazing cakes. It can be very busy here though, so keep that in mind, not the perfect place when you’re in a hurry.

The Collection One – €€ – I love this slow fashion and vintage store. So beautifully curated and absolutely a must to visit when you’re in Amsterdam.
ATALYE – €€ – When you’re looking to revolutionise fashion as we know it, you must make an appointment with ATALYE. With their technology, they’re making clothes after a 3D body scan, so they will fit you and not the other way around.
The Lingerist – €€ – When you’re looking for sustainable lingerie, The Lingerist is your place to go. Online you can get 10% off with code MYSLOWWORLD, but if you want to try on items, I’d recommend going to their store in Amsterdam.
